How Do You Choose The Right Jewellery For Your Outfit?



Choosing the right jewellery to complement your outfit can make a significant difference in enhancing your overall look. Who doesn’t feel better with a bit of bling on?  The right pieces can add flair, elegance, and personality to your ensemble. In this blog post, we will provide you with ideas and tips on how to choose the perfect jewellery for your outfits.

Consider The Occasion

The occasion you are attending plays a crucial role in determining the type of jewellery you should wear. For formal events like weddings or business meetings, it’s best to opt for more understated and elegant jewellery. Delicate earrings (like the Heart Hoops), a simple necklace (like the Electric, a C&B classic), and a classic bracelet (the Sexbomb is perfect) can add a touch of sophistication to your attire. On the other hand, for casual events or parties, you can experiment with more playful and bold pieces. Statement necklaces (why not take a look at the Bombshell?), stacked bracelets (like the Arm Candy Gift Set), or chunky earrings (like the Nova Hoops) can make a striking impression.

Match The Style

When choosing jewellery, try to match the style of your accessories to the overall style of your outfit. If you’re wearing a bohemian-style dress or a flowy maxi skirt, consider choosing jewellery that incorporates natural elements like feathers or shells. For a minimalist outfit, opt for sleek and modern jewellery with clean lines. By harmonising the style of your jewellery with your clothing, you create a cohesive and put-together look.

Coordinate Colours

Consider the colours of your outfit when selecting jewellery. You can choose jewellery that complements or contrasts with the colours you are wearing. If you’re wearing a neutral-toned outfit, adding a pop of colour with a vibrant necklace or a pair of earrings can instantly elevate your look. Conversely, if you’re donning a vibrant and colourful ensemble, you may opt for more subtle and complementary jewellery to avoid overwhelming the overall appearance.

Consider The Neckline

The neckline of your outfit can greatly influence the type of jewellery that complements it. For example, if you’re wearing a V-neck dress or top, a pendant necklace that falls within the V-shaped area can accentuate your neckline beautifully. The gorgeous Stella T-Bar Lariat is perfect for this. Strapless or off-the-shoulder outfits pair well with statement earrings or a choker necklace to draw attention to your collarbones and shoulders. Additionally, high necklines often call for simpler and more delicate pieces, such as stud earrings or a thin chain necklace.

Keep It Simple

When it comes to jewellery, sometimes less is more. Overcrowding your outfit with too many pieces can distract from the overall look and create a cluttered appearance. Instead, aim for a balanced and harmonious look by selecting a few key pieces that complement each other and your outfit. If you’re wearing a bold statement necklace, keep the rest of your jewellery minimal to let the focal piece shine. Alternatively, if you’re wearing intricate and eye-catching earrings, opt for a simple bracelet or no necklace to avoid overwhelming your face.
