Jewellery is a must have to finish your look. But when it comes to matching them to your outfit, it’s common to see all the colours go from the brightest to the dullest. The choice of jewellery is mainly based on the outfit, but also on other criteria that deserve to be considered.
Which jewellery for which events?
You need to match the jewellery you wear to the event you are attending. For example, if you are invited to a party and you plan to wear a neckline, it is imperative to wear a necklace to “dress” the neck (which is, with the chest, naked), a bracelet or discreet earrings, don’t overdo it, because with the neckline, it can turn vulgar. On the other hand, if you are at an event that is a little more formal and dressy, like at work, at a job interview, and therefore not very colourful, insist on jewellery to give a little colour, silver, gold, anything can go.
Choose your jewellery according to your morphology
As with clothes, jewellery is chosen according to the morphology, but nothing as complicated. The rule is that if you have a bit of roundness, you should wear imposing jewellery so that it shows off very well. On the other hand, if you are of average size, or thin, the ideal for you is a piece of jewellery that is a little bit discreet because of its size. Otherwise, you’ll look more like an American rapper instead of an elegant, chic and stylish woman.
Avoid fashion faux pas!
When matching jewellery to clothing, there are some things you shouldn’t do. In particular, wear jewellery in the same colour as your outfit. On the other hand, you can play with shades of colour. You can, for example, put on a green dress and wear extremely light green earrings. Then, if you wear shiny clothes (rhinestone or sequined), make sure that the jewellery is not shiny, choose the most discreet ones to reduce the shiny effect. On the contrary, if you dress soberly, you should focus everything on jewellery to give you a little sparkle. The secret is to know how to play with colour and shine according to your outfit. Too much or too little colour and shine kills the look.
