There are a lot of ways that we come to acquire jewellery. Either as a gift on our birthday, having it passed down from someone in the family, or even simply by choosing an online jewellery store and ordering something we adore. Styling jewellery, on the other hand, can be a lot more challenging, as a lot of people will admit. The good news is that it’s not rocket science to learn how to pair your outfits with jewellery without anything clashing. Most of the time, a quick look in the mirror will help you determine what needs to be changed, as long as you know about some key tips. Let’s dive in.
Keep Things in Balance
In order to maintain harmony between your jewellery and the clothing pieces in your outfit, you need to master the art of balance. It may take some learning at first, but you’ll certainly get the hang of it. Try to objectively determine if your outfit is too busy or more on the minimalistic side. A busy outfit, for example, is something with multiple pieces or layers, or one with lots of striking colors and patterns. The more you have going on with your outfit, the harder of a time you will have finding matching jewelry, in which case, it’s best to wear minimal or no jewelry at all. On the other hand, if you feel a bit plain Jane with your look, you can always upscale it with a few of your favorite pieces.
Match The Styles
You may have a good eye for beautiful pieces of jewelry and breathtaking outfits, but not be able to pair them properly because you don’t pay attention to style. Believe it or not, jewellery comes in different styles as well, which can work better or worse when worn with different outfits. For example, if you want to wear an edgy outfit with a lot of dark colors, bulky statement pieces, and straight lines, it’s not best to wear dainty, classy jewellery with it. The pieces of jewellery will simply disappear into that look and will clash since the styles are so drastically different. Similarly, avoid pairing clunky jewellery with a more clean and polished outfit, like a button-up shirt or formal dress.
Direct the Attention to Where You Want
You don’t need to wear pieces of jewellery earrings, rings, a necklace, and a bracelet all in one look. Sometimes less is more, and other times more is more. Jewellery has the power to draw the attention of the eye to itself, so why not use that to your advantage? If you don’t know what piece to wear with a particular outfit, try to determine which parts of your body seem “empty” from an outfit standpoint. For example, a statement piece necklace is timeless with a strapless or off-shoulder dress to highlight your collarbone. When wearing a long-sleeved top, you don’t particularly need a bracelet or anything adorned on your wrist to complete the look. You choose which of your unique features you want to highlight with each look.
Differentiate Everyday from Evening Jewellery
Each person may have a different definition of everyday jewellery since everyone’s lives and styles are different. Many people may not prefer to wear jewellery at all in their daily lives due to inconveniences it causes or simply preference. To generalize, we can refer to everyday jewellery as neutral, not striking pieces that typically match a lot of looks and don’t contrast too much with anything. Evening, or formal, jewellery on the other hand, includes anything you own that is high-quality, luxurious, and stunning. That includes items made of gold, encrusted with diamonds, or having other intricate touches that make it an absolute show-stopper. It’s all about having options and navigating your way through them.
Don’t Shy Away From Color
Jewellery that is made of colorful straps or encrusted with colorful gemstones shouldn’t discourage you. These pieces are ideal to pair with simple, monotone outfits. A single black dress or a single-color power suit can be elevated with a colorful necklace. As long as you take style, occasion, and balance into consideration (everything we talked about above), you’ll be able to seamlessly include colorful jewellery into your looks.
