Having trouble figuring out the best way to coordinate your jewelry with your personal style?  You may not have even thought about how to coordinate jewelry but suddenly you’ve got the perfect outfit and now you need to pick out the right jewelry to make it truly flawless. Too many choices in your jewelry box can leave you feeling confused and frustrated.

Your jewelry should be a key focal point of your personal style and should be designed to be eye-catching without being garish or “too loud”.  So how do you make a confident decision when accessorizing? Follow our best tips to effortlessly coordinate your jewelry effortlessly!

Make the Jewelry Match the Occasion

You obviously wouldn’t wear the same jewelry to church as you would to a special event, so first and foremost, it’s important to consider where you’re going and what you’ll be doing. How will your choice of jewelry look to others? 

Wearing a Busy Pattern? Choose Simpler Jewelry

You don’t want both your jewelry and your outfit to compete for attention so opt for simpler designs if you’re wearing a busy pattern like stripes or spots. You’ll also want to consider the material the outfit is made of. For example, ruffles and heavy, ornate jewelry will look very tacky together. 

Highlight Your Face with Statement Earrings

Maybe you’ve chosen the perfect dress for the occasion, but if you want your face to be center stage, it’s time to bring out the statement earrings: you know, the elegant diamond ones that glitter from multiple angles and really show off your unique facial structure. If you have a more heart-shaped face, drop earrings that don’t taper at the ends will suit your bone structure well. Conversely, if you have a more oval face, studs or triangular earrings will highlight those gorgeous cheekbones. 

Wear Jewelry that Compliments Your Skin Tone

Just like statement earrings can really accentuate your face’s natural curves, so too can jewelry that highlights your beautiful skin tone. Silver beautifully highlights most skin tones while gold really blends well with darker hair and matte skin. White gold looks incredible when paired with cooler skin tones as well. 

Mix Warm and Cool

Skin tones aren’t the only areas where jewelry can function as a natural embellishment. Mixing warm and cool tones, such as cool-toned jewelry (platinum, white gold, silver) with warm colors or warm-toned jewelry (gold, rubies, amber) with cooler hues provides a gentle contrast and catches the eye without being too visually overbearing. 

If you’re still not sure of the best way to coordinate jewelry with your outfit, go for diamonds. Diamonds really are a girl’s best friend, because they go with everything! A classic white diamond reflects light beautifully and really adds a whole new “facet” to your outfit!  Try it for yourself, we think you’ll agree!
