Do you want to select the best accessories that will make you stand out? Yes, I do! And you can, too.
You want to select accessories that match or pair well with your outfit. If you plan to wear a classic LBD (little black dress), you want to select classic jewelry as well. How odd would it be, to see the first lady, wearing gaudy fashion jewelry? I would say, very odd. Especially, since I would bet she has a personal stylist. The point is, do not pair unlike items with one another. You need to pair like clothing with like accessories.
The hairstyle matters too. How will you wear your hair? Will you have it up and away from your face? Or will you wear, your hair down? Do you have short hair or long hair? All of these questions are important factors that will contribute to the size of earrings or necklace you will wear.
If you opt to wear your hair up or away from your face. You can wear small or large earrings because they will pop either way. Now, of course, small earrings give a subtle classy effect; whereas the larger earrings give off a sassy edgy vibe. Either way, you will look fabulous.
Women, who choose to wear their hair down often times hide the earrings they wear. So, in this case, focus on the necklace. Chokers and pendant work best for this look.
Should you wear white gold or yellow gold? You want to select the color that looks best on you. You want to choose based on your skin tone. Here is how to use your skin tone to choose the metal color that complements you best.
The best way to determine your own personal skin tone is to look at the color of the veins located on the inside of your arm.
Cool skin tones are identifiable by bluish colored veins. People with cooler skin tones may notice pinkish or rosy-red undertones when looking in the mirror. Most people have cool skin, including people with dark skin and tan skin.
If you have determined that you have a cool skin tone, you’ll look best wearing pieces crafted of platinum and white gold. In terms of gems consider pearls, Blue Sapphire, Amethyst, Aquamarine, Ruby, Emerald, Opal, Pariaba Tourmaline, Tanzanite and Zircon.
Warm skin tones are identifiable by greenish colored veins. People with warmer skin tones may notice yellow or golden-apricot undertones when looking in the mirror. People with darker skin are not usually warm-skinned.
Designs crafted in classic yellow gold or rich rose gold look fantastic on those with warm skin tones. Warm-hued gemstones such as Alexandrite, Citrine, Garnet, Morganite, Peridot, Ruby, Mandarin Garnet, and fancy yellow diamonds are also a flattering choice.
Still not sure about what works best for you? You can’t go wrong with diamonds. They look fantastic on both warm and cool toned skin. What really matters is that you feel comfortable in whatever earrings, necklace, bracelet, or ring you choose regardless of the color of your veins.
