December brings us the biggest party season of the year, what with work parties, winter gatherings with friends on the run up to Christmas, and of course, the biggie – New Year’s Eve.
It’s a special time of year where we all look forward to to dressing up and looking fabulous, ready for plenty of good times and celebrations. Although you might have your party frock ready for the festive fiestas, do you have the right jewellery to go with it?
Choosing the best jewellery to wear with your outfit can make you stand out from the crowd and have you feeling sensational, but only when the pairings are done right. Here’s a quick and simple guide to picking the right jewellery to wear with your party outfit this season, from the jewellery experts Jeulia.
Keep it simple…
If you’re a fan of big bold prints and patterns, or if you’ve gone for an outfit with plenty of texture, your jewellery should be kept simple and delicate. Your outfit itself will be making enough of a statement, so that jewellery should only be worn as an added touch of glamour.
Refrain from wearing any kind of necklace or long dangly earrings with high necklines with lots of pattern or texture – they will simply get lost in the design of the dress. Instead, opt for a small and delicate jewellery set with pretty gemstones to mix and match to your outfit.
Even if striking jewellery isn’t really your thing, you can pair subtle jewellery with a more simple outfit – we’d just recommend wearing more of it! A combination of necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings can add some sparkle and style to your elegant outfit. In this instance, pairing the right jewellery together becomes more important, so make sure each piece shares the same material and style. Plenty of jewellers provide jewellery sets to make sure everything you wear goes well together, if you are looking for designer ranges, check out OD’s Jewellers who stock Vivienne Westwood, Thomas Sabo and Tommy Hilfiger ranges amongst many more.
The best outfits for bold…
Bold jewellery can dazzle and amaze your fellow party goers, especially when you’ve chosen a simple yet stylish outfit to wear it with. Only one bold piece of jewellery should be worn at once, otherwise they can appear garish.
Usually it’s a choice between a statement set of earrings or a bold necklace, and either can be worn with any simple outfit, especially those with a high neckline. For low necklines, we’d suggest a statement pair of earrings over a bold necklace, otherwise the jewellery and the style of the dress would clash.
Ear jackets and cuffs are becoming increasingly popular, for their unique design and stand out appearance. If you’re looking for something a little different but don’t want to go for big and bright earrings, you could try some ear climbers. Don’t be afraid to pair statement earrings with a vivid and chunky ring, as they’re worn too far away from one another to look over the top. Moissanite rings can provide the sort of sparkle that looks fabulous against a little black dress, or you could opt for a super cute ring from the Jeulia Hug me range that combines your favourite animal with a beautiful ring. My favourite is the stunning, majestic swan design.
These tips here are just a general rule of thumb for looking stunning and stylish during the party season, but if you have any suggestions of your own to share with us, let us know!
