How to Incorporate Jewellery in to Your Style
An Essential Accessory Guide on how to incorporate jewellery into your style for different occasions
For those in the know, proper accessorising is nothing short of an art form. Legendary style icon and luxury fashion designer Coco Chanel is famous for saying a lady must look in the mirror and remove one accessory before leaving the house each day. Rather than providing the finishing touches or final flourish to your look, the addition of accessories can in fact completely change the sense of occasion of your ensemble. High among the list of accessory options is jewellery. So with so many options to choose from, how can you avoid the pitfalls and successfully incorporate jewellery into your style?
Whether it’s a first date or a night out with your long term partner, we all like to get dressed up for a date. Costume jewellery and statement pieces are great for jazzing up more casual evening wear and work really well if you are heading straight out from the office.
Cocktail rings, vintage brooches and statement necklaces are all viable choices for date night, but it can be tempting to over-compensate. A good rule is to stick to just 1 item per outfit. When it comes to costume jewellery, a little goes a long way.
An important work meeting
With that scary work meeting coming up, anything you can do to increase in confidence is a bonus. The importance of power dressing should therefore not be under-rated. Pairing an understated necklace with cigarette trousers and your favourite loafers is both smart and appropriate. Comfort is key here. The last thing you need when giving a presentation or meeting clients is a cumbersome necklace that is distracting to you and everyone else in the meeting.
Weekend brunch with friends
It’s Saturday morning and you are meeting a few friends at a centrally located brunch spot. It’s a casual affair, but you don’t want to look like you just rolled out of bed (no matter how late you got home last night). A pair of hoop earrings can be a great way of dressing up a casual polo neck in winter or a day dress in summer.
A summer sojourn
Whether it’s a week on the Rivera with your partner, or a glamorous girls holiday to Dubai, it’s fun to dress up on holiday. For evenings spent sipping cocktails and dining out, it’s ok to go a little O.T.T by adorning yourself with stacking rings and statement cuffs. Investing in stylish jewellery boxes for women means that you no longer have to compromise on style just because you are travelling.
For engagement parties, weddings, christenings and any other formal social engagement, adding a bejewelled garland or hair pin can really elevate your party style. If you do go for this look, then make sure the rest of your accessories are understated.
