Jewellery and Fashion 101: The style guide you NEED TO READ before buying jewellery for yourself Published on: 20/01/2023 by devs - Leave a Comment Finding the jewelry you love is incredibly personal. Deciding how best to compliment individual outfits with the perfect piece of jewelry to accentuate your face, features, and fashions makes things even more complicated. While there might seem to be an almost unlimited amount of considerations and possibilities, we’d like to help cut through the “analysis paralysis” with some advice and basic principles to help you become a more knowledgeable jewelry buyer, manufacturer, or fashionista. Jewellery that tells a story Jewellery can be one of the most powerful tools in your wardrobe to command attention. Mainly, jewelry can work wonders to draw the eye to a particular feature–be it your hands, ears, neck, or elsewhere. Like any good story, your jewelry shouldn’t try to draw your audience’s attention in too many directions. If you’re wearing dramatic earrings, you may want to pair them with a more subtle necklace; a showstopping chain, conversely, might go best with less attention-grabbing accessories. By not overdoing your jewelry and deciding on a central focus on the theme, you can create a “narrative” for your look that puts you in the driver’s seat of precisely the story your fashion will tell when you walk in the room. Hinting at more One significant piece of advice is to use your jewelry to have fun playing with expectations. For example, when dressing down in casual or streetwear, matching your outfit with elegant gold jewelry can suggest that there’s “more than meets the eye.” Conversely, more traditional outfits, paired with particularly distinctive, unique, or dazzling jewelry pieces, instantly introduce its wearer as someone who defies expectations, marches to the beat of their drum, and starts trends rather than following them. Color Contrasts that POP The trend of “playing with expectations” is valid for color pairing. One of the most prominent examples of this comes when you head out in your little black dress — or any of your other black outfits, for that matter. Accessorizing with silver, diamonds, and pearls can create extraordinary contrast that exudes style and elegance when you’re all in black. In contrast, the color contrast makes your jewelry command even more attention. Similarly, you can never go wrong mixing and matching darker-colored outfits with lighter-colored pastel jewelry and vice versa—deep blues with brilliant light Aquas, passionate purples with subtle pastel mauves. The possibilities are virtually endless. Bonus advice: Don’t overlook your earrings! For everyone you speak to, your earrings will be the jewelry most frequently in their field of view. Yet, despite their visibility, earrings tend to be often downplayed and overlooked, with many wearing the same pair day after day. Instead, choose and wear your earrings with fashion and purpose. Pick earrings that create the best visual frame for your face, bring out your eyes, and complement your hair and skin tone can work wonders for a look that beams with style and confidence.
