Statement jewelry can make, break, or transform an outfit.While the garments you choose to wear are, of course, important, using eye-catching accessories can give an outfit additional flourishes that will surely turn heads.In fact, some statement jewelry is so worthy on its own that outfits can be designed around them. You can wear deliberately toned down clothing in order to accentuate the jewelry.These accessories can be used to inject color, a special finishing touch, and to even bring out your own natural features, such as your eyes.
Here are some ways to take regular and fancier outfits and to make them truly stunning with statement jewelry…
- CHUNKY STATEMENT JEWELRY
Typically, statement jewelry will be bold, larger, and louder. Not always, but generally this is the way.Chunkier items of statement jewelry are eye-catching and make a major impression. They say “look at me”. If your outfit is plain or louder, adding larger necklaces or bracelets in interesting shapes or with unique details give them that extra edge. Large statement brooches and earrings are also effective.
- HEAVY METAL
Don’t just think about the color of your statement jewelry; think about texture.Most jewelry is metallic, so be sure to turn heads with the type of metals you use ranging from gold, bronze, rose gold, silver, white gold
- SPARKLY STATEMENT
If you want your outfit to be as practical as it is glamorous, it’s more than possible to get your hands on items of jewelry that give that beautiful glittering effect for a fraction of the price. Jewel tones generally draw the eye, compliment any skin tone, and catch the light in a way that shows such depth and beauty. Seek out items that will stand out when they catch the light.
- GLAM AND GRAPHIC
Very much on trend, at the moment, for both work and play is a graphic T-shirt paired with statement jewelry.T-shirts may not scream ‘dressy’ but they create the perfect foundation piece for a bold ensemble. Seek out an urban print on a plain tee, or a classical design or wording for that sophisticated edge. Then team it with a statement necklace that compliments it. Play with patterns and colors here.
- VINTAGE ELEGANCE
Vintage inspired necklaces are sophisticated and neat, often centered around unique shapes and delicate stylings. Add statement bracelets or necklaces in a vintage style to achieve that Audrey Hepburn look.
- GET TO WORK
Workplace attire doesn’t have to be dull and conservative. And even if you have to be a little more rigid at work, statement jewelry is an excellent way to still remain professional but also get inventive. Definitely try and avoid chunky items and loud colors, if your workplace is more corporate.Keep it Classic, understated, but still eye-catching.
- REVAMP YOUR LAST SEASON LOOKS
You’re bound to own old clothes, but before you throw them out think about whether they can be modernized in some way, with statement jewelry perhaps.Things come back into fashion remember, and adding a trendy eye-catching statement necklace to revamp your older items could be just the ticket.Adding accessories might transform them from just “old” to “vintage”.
- PICK UP RIGHT JEWELLERY AS PER YOUR SKIN TONE
Determine your skin tone. You have a cool skin tone if your veins are blue. You have a warm skin tone if your veins are greener. You have a neutral skin tone if your skin has no obvious espresso, olive, or redness in color. Neutral skin tones tend to fit in with the cool skin tone category
Cool skin tone looks best with red, purple, and blue gemstones.Cool skin tone matches best with white metals. Examples of this would be silver or white gold.
Warm skin tone looks best with yellow, orange, and green. Warm skin tone also matches best with yellow metals. Examples of this would be yellow gold or copper.
Diamonds look good with any skin tone.
- SELECT JEWELLERY AS PER BODY TYPE/ FIGURE TYPE
You can choose jewelry that enhances or offsets your body type, depending on your goal. You can draw attention to, or away from, certain body parts, or balance proportions using strategically placed pieces.To draw attention to body parts you are proud of, wear jewelry with bold colors on or near those body parts.If you are a larger person, wear larger jewelry. Petite people should buy smaller, daintier pieces. Scale your jewelry to your body’s size.
- MATCH YOUR JEWELRY TO YOUR PERSONALITY
Outgoing, bold people tend to wear large pieces like big, bold rings or many bracelets on one wrist.Reserved people are more likely to be wearing one small gemstone, or a pair of earrings, maybe with a ring to match it. Usually a favorite piece.Eccentric people tend to go after vintage pieces. Something that is one of a kind, not worn by anyone else.
