Wearing the right jewellery for your outfit can really add the finishing touch, but knowing what jewellery to wear for what occasion can be difficult.
What’s the Occasion?
If you are getting ready for your working day and work in an office or do a lot of work on a computer, then wearing big dangling necklaces or bracelets covered in heavy charms will get in the way and drive you and your co-workers crazy. However, if you are going to garden party and wearing a simple summer dress, then this type of jewellery can look great.
What Type of Jewellery?
If you like wearing feminine lace and frills, don’t match this look with fussy jewellery, as it can get lost in the fabric and spoil the look – making you look mismatched.
You’ll find that maxi dresses from AX Paris are perfect if you like to wear lots of bright colours and patterns, but try to avoid any clashing jewellery and stick to solid coloured bracelets, necklaces and earrings that complement rather than clash with your outfit.
If you want to highlight your face, make sure you choose the right earrings. Different-shaped faces suit different styles of earring. A heart-shaped face suits a drop earring style, but a lady with an oval face shape should consider wearing studs. Lady Gabriella Windsor looked stunning in her bridal gown and drop earrings at her recent wedding to Thomas Kingston.
Always try to match your jewellery with your skin tone. Silver looks best on natural tones, and gold tends to suit darker hair and skin. Gemstones come in a variety of colours, and warmer skin tones especially suit yellow, orange and green shades. Diamonds can really bring out the eyes.
If you want to make an impact, wearing rubies or diamonds with a black or white outfit will really make you stand out from the crowd, and if you want to be more subtle, try wearing pearls with maxi dresses in colours such as blues and greys.
Some outfits scream out for a statement piece of jewellery, and others require something more sophisticated and delicate, so the best thing to do is to plan ahead and have a selection for both everyday jewellery and more valuable pieces for special occasions.
