Jewellery has the power to turn a simple outfit into a glamourous one!
This is my conclusion after a lot of fashion disasters. I have learnt it after a lot of trial and errors. Let me help you to learn some of the fashion etiquettes for one-piece dresses (I am truly obsessed with all types of one-piece dresses!).
Let’s come to the topic.
For centuries people have been wearing jewellery to create a fashion statement. Thus, fashion etiquette is more like an essential these days.
Today, wearing diamond jewellery is not just about adding glitter to your outfit; it’s more to do with stepping up your style quotient and flaunting your personality.
In this blog, I will guide you to select the right jewellery to match your favourite dresses. Stay with me as I help you to level up your fashion sensibilities and creativity to enhance your dressy look.
Fashion tips for coordinating your jewellery and dress
Dresses are more versatile and easier to convert from a day to night look with some elegant pieces of jewellery. You can consider them as your wardrobe staple when planning to travel or going for a brunch date.
The simple mantra is to choose the right outfit, depending on the occasion. Roll down to know a few tips adored by fashionistas and trendspotters.
- Be versatile:
It’s time to expand your choices and one-piece dress collection. Move out of your comfort zone and learn to experiment with short, sexy dresses and prints.
Layer up your standard black dress with a shrug or show off your sexy neckline along with large diamond hoops and boots for a perfect date look. On the other hand, a sheath dress with a denim jacket can be an excellent choice for a hot date or workwear.
- Play with accessories:
Remember this: Your clothing-jewellery combination speaks about your unique personality.
You may not want to compromise on that, right!
The perfect jewellery can make you feel sexy and chic. Grab attention to your look with a pair of trendy chandelier earrings, sassy bracelets and peep-toes heels.
For a flirty, feminine look, go for a long gold necklace, hoop earrings and strappy sandals.
The thumb rule is to match up with your dress or pick one colour and play with it.
- Amp up your workwear:
Ditch your tailored pantsuits and pencil skirts for work and make way for something different.
How about a sheath dress with a blazer and studs?
This sounds like a pair! I truly love this combo as it allows me to flaunt my unique style at my workplace.
If you want a conservative look, then opt for midi in neutral colours, drop earrings, and pumps. For a casual Friday, break out the patterns and look for floral, bright colours and complete it with a cropped jacket.
Play up with your outfits to enhance your look.
- Dresses: Your travel buddy:
A sundress is your best companion that allows you to mix match your look and jewellery depending on the place. Compliment your dress with sparkling jewellery, looking at multiple regions with different climates.
For tropical areas, choose a breezy, floral short dress. If you’re moving towards colder regions, then couple your dress with tights and a scarf for warmth. There’s nothing wrong in being innovative and styling yourself in different ways as possible.
- Invest in fancy maxis:
Stock up on vibrant, subtle and classic maxis as they are both comfortable and stylish. It’s a perfect choice for a party or casual wear. Slip into one and club it with playful earrings, layered necklace, and light makeup to go for a day out with your girlfriends.
Meanwhile, you can also choose to go all classic with an elegant pair of diamond earrings, pendant and stylish pumps for a party. Looking at the cut of your maxi, you can accessorize yourself according to the occasion.
- Pile up on ethnic jewellery:
A closet is incomplete without one-piece dresses. Traditional jewellery can help you create new looks for different occasions by merely accessorizing it differently.
Do you want a desi look?
It goes well on everything, including chic boho dresses, skirts, tunics, lehengas and other contemporary picks.
Chandeliers look elegant and offer you a chic look. They are a timeless piece of jewellery, which adds extra oomph to your traditional as well as contemporary outfit. Please make sure you pick them accordingly.
Pick statement necklaces:
Women adore statement jewellery due to their unique and stylish designs. It works perfectly by adding interest to your ensemble. Simply, add a jewel statement necklace with a casual tee or collared striped shirts to amp up your casual look. This is something I love wearing on dates with my husband.
While for dresses, statement necklaces look great on one-shoulder or cold-shoulder dresses, including monochromatic dresses.
Go bold and beautiful with statement necklaces!
Jhumkas are mandatory:
Your jewellery box should have this piece of jewellery. Jhumkas, when paired with traditional outfits, can elevate your entire look. They are found in varied shapes, sizes and designs to match both festive and everyday fervour.
Unknowingly, it adds splendour, charm and gives a lot of depth to your bridal look. Even the simplest of looks into extraordinary ones brings an instant burst of glamour. This makes it a must-have!
Lastly, I would like to advise you one thing.
Take good care of your nails. Yes! Hand adornments like rings and bracelets give you an instant bold look. With this, it’s mandatory to have manicured nails painted with muted hues such that people notice your bold diamond ring bought online.
Another important message to you all is – ‘Moderation is the key’.
I would personally recommend you to focus on wearing one specific type of jewellery. If you’ve worn too much on your hands, then you should prefer wearing something light on the ears and neck. You need to understand that chandelier earrings should be worn on something simple or with no jewellery.
Never wear too much jewellery as you tend to lose focus on your overall look. Follow the above tips so that you can flaunt your style.
Till then, stay fancy and stylish even during this pandemic!
