The Proper Rules in Wearing Statement Jewelry
Posted on 23 September 2016
What women love the most about statement jewelry is how they can bring life to an outfit. They are designed to grab attention and make your whole outfit stand out. But just like any accessories, statement jewelry needs to be worn correctly and with the right style.
Here are some rules you should follow:
Less is always more.
The most important thing to keep in mind when wearing statement jewelry is that less is always more. Don’t be tempted to wear a lot of bold and outrageous jewelry pieces, but rather stick to the rule of “wearing one statement jewelry at a time.” Once you have chosen what statement piece to wear, add pieces of jewelry that will complement it.
Keep it balanced.
Now that you have the statement piece to work on let’s go to the other accessories and jewelry to complete your look. What you need to remember when adding other pieces is that you must have balance. You must also pick the right dress that will complement that statement piece. You can do this by choosing what statement jewelry to wear first and then finding an outfit that will suit the piece.
Pick the right earrings.
Earrings are usually the first jewelry that people will notice. Choosing the wrong pair can be distracting, so make sure to pick a pair of earrings that will complement your facial features and hairstyle. For example, if you’re wearing dangling earrings, make sure to keep your hair sleek and straight. Also, consider your makeup when choosing a pair of earrings for your look.
Necklace must match the dress neckline.
One way to make sure that your statement necklace stands out is by choosing a dress or top with the right neckline such as strapless, off-the-shoulder, or low v-neckline. Avoid wearing halter tops or collared shirts. If you want to experiment with wearing statement necklaces on turtle-neck sweater, just make sure that the top is form-fitting.
Polished nails and statement rings.
Wearing cocktail fashion rings will draw attention to your hands, so make sure that they are properly groomed. Aside from this, you must consider the color of your nails when wearing a statement ring. Always remember to make sure that the ring complements the color of your nails.
Just follow these steps, so you can properly pull off that statement piece, whether it's a bold necklace, a pair of long and dangling earrings, or a dazzling cocktail ring.
