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.

 

 

Tips to wear jewelry the right way

Not everyone has the liberty of consulting an image consultant on the go. For those who follow their instinct, here are a few handy pointers that you may want to keep in mind:

  1. Choose jewelry that creates a pleasing sense of balance. If your frame is a little bigger, small pieces of jewelry will not be accentuated. Wear jewelry according to your size. Small diamond studs are usually the preferred choice of most women but bigger women should group different stones together for a cascading effect which creates a leaner effect.
  2. Large, clunky jewelry tends to overpower a woman of a more petite size. A minimal and clean look is what suits someone with a small frame. Ultra-fine chains, large thin hoops, and a stack of thin-rimmed bangles. But, try not to combine clunky jewelry with bold patterned dresses or loud colours.
  3. Accentuate the features that you want to. If you have perfectly manicured fingers, wear pretty rings to show them off. By wearing jewelry that highlights your assets will draw the attention away from the features you don’t like.
  4. Having said that, the right kind of jewelry will help soften those less-flattering features too. If you have a short neck, dangling earrings will elongate it – just avoid them touching your shoulders. If you want to elongate your neck further, opt for longer chains rather than chokers.
  5. Keeping it simple is making a statement in itself. A necklace composed of a series of flat-cut geodes lying against the collarbone creates a very feminine look while being bold.
