Matching Your Jewellery to The Occasion
The jewellery you choose to pair with your outfit can really elevate your look and set the occasion. Beautiful, hand crafted jewellery can complement your outfit elegantly and help you feel more confident in your look. But just like the shoes and dress you wear, your choice of jewellery should depend on the occasion. To make styling easier, see below our guide to matching jewellery to the event you are attending:
For the bride, every inch of your wedding day should feel special. Matching jewellery to traditions or symbolising the life they share with their partner is popular for brides. Having heirlooms remodelled to suit your personal taste is a popular option too, keeping those who can’t be there close with you as you walk down the aisle.
Bespoke designs are also a popular choice, to give you something unique to remember your big day by. With bespoke jewellery, you can also include your something blue and a meaningful quote to treasure always.
For wedding guests, keep it sophisticated with dainty occasion jewellery for a more put together look. For a bit more glam, diamonds and gems work well to tie in with the colours of your outfit. But if your outfit is solid colour and no pattern, a statement necklace paired with stud earrings would work perfectly.
To elevate your outfit, choose a statement piece to feature in your look and pair with understated pieces. For evening attire, it is recommended to be consistent with one type of metal and one type of stone in your jewellery choices.
Drop earrings are a great choice for your statement piece, to wear with your hair tied up – not only do they accentuate your neck, but will also enhance your natural elegance. Statement bracelets are also another option if your outfit is sleeveless with a high neck, and will fill the empty space and balance out your look.
An evening out with the girls for dancing and cocktails is always a fun night. Therefore, your outfit should show this with your use of accessories. Statement pieces with solid colour outfits will bring your look to life and take your outfit from day to night. Layering long chain necklaces or stacking thin bracelets are also great for showing your spontaneous side.
The jewellery you choose to wear daily is entirely down to your personal sense of style. For those who enjoy high-fashion looks everyday may go for more colourful, statement pieces or layering. Those who enjoy minimalism may opt for timeless stud earrings and a small bracelet.
If your daily outfit consists of a formal work uniform, the rule is to keep your jewellery toned down. Therefore, when matching jewellery it is recommended to avoid statement necklaces, stacked bracelets and earrings which hang.
However, this doesn’t mean you still can’t go to work in style. As an alternative, consider stud earrings, pendant necklaces and one ring.
