The right way to wear chains

pic2The right jewelry can complete an outfit. The wrong one can confuse it. Necklaces, unlike, other pieces of jewelry can sometimes play to be tricky buggers. There are no official rules on how to wear jewelry but here are a few guidelines on how to wear necklaces which can be a great style statement and figure enhancer.

  1. Wear bright, chunky necklaces with neutral colours. An abstract 3-D design necklace along with a white peasant shirt over denim jeans. As the rest of the outfit is simple, the necklace should raise up the wow factor up a notch.
  2. If you are wearing clothes that are bright in colour or have animal prints on them, pair them with less elaborate necklaces such as long silver or gold chains.
  3. A pearl or diamond necklace with a little black dress would look perfect. Extravagant jewelry should be worn only on special occasions.
  4. Bib necklaces are to be worn only with high-cut but low-collared shirts and jackets.
  5. Don’t wear more than one necklace at once. A good chunky necklace is good enough on its own without having to pair it with a big necklace or a scarf or any other variety of neck wear.
  6. Be careful of with what you put your money on. Sloppily made, cheap imitations are tacky and make you seem careless with the way you present yourself. Avoid necklaces with words hanging from them if you want to stay fashion forward.

Before heading out, experiment with the jewelry you own and decide what looks best on you.

Best ways to show off the bling!

ImageA woman’s beaming smile is equivalent to the size of the rock on her finger because nothing gets us going like a pretty ring, a beautiful necklace or a pair of shiny, sparkly earrings. No matter how big or small, expensive or cheap, real or fake, a good piece of jewelry has a knack of lifting our spirits. Jewelry is to women as games and cars are to men. We can never have enough!

Flaunting your style

The kind of jewelry you wear highlights your personality and is extremely personal. A lot of women can’t leave the house without loading up on chunky necklaces and beads, while for others a small pendant and simple diamond studs complete the look. Some women prefer an armful of bangles or bracelets. Just make sure to have fun with it.

If you are going to load up on an armful of bangles, try and minimalise on the necklace and earrings. You don’t need to look like a Christmas tree.

Match it to your clothes

Just like how you would match your shoes to the rest of the outfit, you need to think about the jewelry in the same way too. A thin chain goes well with a ruffle-front blouse but not a chunky piece of necklace. Jewelry should raise the outfit a notch.

Choosing it right

Don’t buy cheap imitations. Invest in some good costume jewelry and make sure that it goes with a number of different outfits.

You can wear different necklaces with different necklines right from simple, subtle gold chains or a strand of pearls to bold, colourful beads. You can choose to wear necklaces of varied shapes and sizes which add to a festive look. You can make a statement with a wide choker or a bib and you would have to forgo other jewelry when wearing such a fetching item.

Earrings

Earrings have always had an impact on your complete outfit. Whether you prefer simple studs or dangling ones, each one needs to be well considered when you are in the line of vision. Pearl, gold and diamond studs are versatile and go well with everything. Chandelier earrings are bound to make heads turn and when you wear these, you don’t need a necklace, a brooch or bangles.

Put a ring on it

It does not have to be an engagement ring for you to flaunt it. Rings make a bigger statement especially if you are using your hands to talk or move around. You can choose to stack your rings as it gives it a funky edge or adorn it on different fingers.

Brace it

Bracelets add that extra oomph and are an exciting piece of jewelry to wear. Bracelets add substance to your style. You can choose to wear bracelets of different sizes but keep it limited to one to two types. You decide to wear short sleeves or roll up long ones to display your bijoux.
