Jewelry can add color and elegance to an outfit. But most people do not know how to pair neckpieces, brooches, rings, wristwatches, earrings and other accessories with the right outfit. Here are some tips on matching jewelry with clothes.
Your accessories can either complement or be the focus of your look. Choose clothes that work around your jewelry if you want it to stand out. Select your clothes first if the accessories are supposed to function as a complement.
Pair your embroidered outfits with simple jewelry. The embroidery makes the outfit stand out, making flashy accessories unnecessary. The pieces you pick should complement the design on the clothes not overwhelm them.
Gold chains and pearl necklaces are a great choice for formal wear. They pair well with a black dress if you want to look simple and elegant. You can also add some stone trinkets to your gold chain for formal occasions. The precious stones and dress do not have to match in color. The stones should highlight and complement the outfit.
Diamonds are a good choice if you want to wear a black dress while white outfits match well with blue and red sapphires and rubies. An orange piece of jewelry can highlight a blue outfit.
Avoid fancy jewelry when you wear casual clothes. Plain chain necklaces, casual watches, gold rings, stud earrings, and plastic and wooden bangles are perfect when you want to dress down. They can be worn with a pair of jeans and a t-shirt to add some color. Experiment with various accessory colors and textures to make your clothes stand out.
Silver and gold are ideal when you wear multi-colored clothes. These jewelry options are neutral, highlighting the color of your outfit instead of competing for attention. You can also choose pieces that are the same color as your outfit. Choosing multi-colored accessories can make you look disorganized.
Layering is great especially on those cold days, but it can make it difficult to pick jewelry. The trick is to stick to simple accessories such as stud earrings especially if your outfit includes belts and scarves.
Proper clothing and jewelry coordination can make you look sensational. Think about the occasion you are attending and what you want to achieve with your accessories. Matching jewelry with clothes can draw attention to your best features if you do it right. Use these tips to pick appropriate pieces the next time you dress for an evening out or day with friends.
