When it comes to dressing up, perhaps the only thing more frustrating and time-consuming than picking out the perfect outfit is picking out the ideal jewelry to go with it. Of course, having choices is great, but overchoice is a thing and can turn dressing up from something fun and liberating to something you dread. So, how can you make better and quicker decisions about which jewelry pieces to coordinate with your outfit?
Well, we’ve dedicated this piece to answering just that. Here are some fantastic ways to coordinate jewelry with your outfit. Take a look.
Yes, fashion vs. function continues to be a debate well into the 21st century, but there’s a reason why it’s persisted for so long. Some fashion choices and trends just don’t make sense in particular settings and for particular purposes. In the case of jewelry, dangling wrist jewelry hardly seems appropriate for when you’re typing on a keyboard at work. The point is to know where you’re going and for what purpose and pick your jewelry accordingly.
One of fashion’s biggest faux pas is to avoid looking gaudy. Pairing busy prints with heavy, ornate jewelry is sure to get real gaudy real fast. If you’re wearing a blouse or dress with an eye-catching print, simple jewelry like solid earrings, bracelets, or a simple necklace will complement it instead of coming off as tacky.
Your dress may be a showstopper, but if you want to draw attention to your face, grab yourself a pair of statement earrings—the flashy kind that bring out the best in your eyes. If your face is heart-shaped, consider wearing drop earrings that aren’t tapered at the bottom. If you have an oval face, consider wearing triangular earrings or studs to accentuate your cheekbones.
Your outfit isn’t the only thing your jewelry should pair well with; it should also highlight your skin tone. Warmer skin tones pair well with orange, green, and yellow gemstones, in addition to yellow/gold metals. Cooler skin tones, on the other hand, go well with blue, purple, and red skin tones paired with white gold.
