5 looks that compliment your jewelry
5 Looks that compliment your jewelry
While the variety of designs and types available in designer jewelry is vast, a lot of men and women struggle to find the right kind of outfits and styles that can accentuate and improve the visual impact of the pieces they wear. This leads to the under-use of jewelry and the notion that most pieces are only fit for certain occasions and times.
How to wear jewelry?
There is no denying the fact that particular occasions and clothes are more suitable for wearing jewelry, there are certain things that can be done in order to make the entire look better. The kind of look and clothes that you wear for different places is also different, and the same logic applies to jewelry as well. While certain pieces will only be suitable for casual and semi-casual attire, many might go brilliantly with your workplace clothes.
In this article, we will go over five different kinds of looks that should be sufficient for you to pick out the right piece and clothing for all occasions:
The workplace look
First and foremost, it is an obvious fact that workplaces are not suitable for wearing heavy or multiple pieces of jewelry. While most offices do not have a dress code that governs the kind of jewelry employees can wear, wearing bold or multiple pieces will more often than not be frowned upon, and therefore should be avoided.
Further, you will not want to wear dangling pendants and necklaces or bracelets with elaborate designs, as that can also be seen as unprofessional. In office situations, it is better to go with subtle pieces such as stud earrings or a diamond ring or two. Anything more than that might transform the entire look for the worse!
Hence, for workplaces, we recommend a minimalistic approach to give you an overall professional business-like look.
The casual look
Most designer jewelry with their bold intrinsic designs is perfect for casual wear. It is the party that you are invited to, or the date that you have on the weekend, when you can be bold and free with the pieces that you wear. Here, wearing multiple pieces to create a unique look, and using bold colors that stand out is highly recommended.
This means that you can try big colorful pieces such as jewel-laden pendants and earrings or elaborate gold yellow bracelets and necklaces! Blending the right jewelry for your chosen attire can go a long way in brightening up your entire personality, and people are more likely to remember and notice you, especially in crowds.
Further, the variety in the types of designer jewelry available means that in casual situations you can also experiment with different kinds of pieces, such as anklets, toe rings and multiple studs. However, if you choose to wear multiple pieces, you should ensure that they are complementary and proportional with respect to size and color.
The idea is to wear contrasting colors that complement the overall feel of the jewelry that you want to wear. While experimentation is encouraged, you should know the difference between a good look and one that is simply an overkill!
For formal and semi-formal settings
Apart from the two above kinds of looks that you need to think about, there is a third distinct category of occasions when you might want to stand out without attracting too much attention or wearing too many pieces. These occasions can be your friend’s wedding, or a formal workplace dinner.
In these situations, while the aim is to create a memorable look that is noticed by people, you should consider going with simple, bold pieces that have the ability to stand out without making a person think that you particularly dressed up for the occasion. This is true for weddings in the sense that you wouldn’t want a look that takes away attention from the bride, or any such occasion where you want to be noticed without particularly standing out.
Over here, the idea is to not wear too many pieces and colors, but just enough to be perfectly complimentary to your attire and give you a simple, bold look. A workplace-related commitment, or a formal dinner is perfect for such looks.
The minimalistic look
The minimalistic approach towards jewelry has taken off, in the last few months. Minimalistic pieces, or pieces that are “barely there” are simple yet stylish jewelry pieces with unique styles that are made to stand out without taking up too much visual space, in a look. They have simple lines and engravings with less colors and distinct discreteness that requires a person’s close attention to decode its entire essence.
Minimalism is an approach which started out as a way of living, or existing, a state of mind where one does not require too many materialistic things to be happy and at ease with his surroundings. In much the same way, minimalistic jewelry has an aura of calmness which people relate with confidence and boldness. Today, you can easily find minimalistic earrings, necklaces, bracelets, rings and various other types of minimalistic jewelry on any of the many jewelry websites on the internet. You don’t need to worry, and should remember that most people nowadays buy their jewelry online!
Further, because of their simple designs, minimalistic jewelry is highly customizable, and often has space for engravings of initials and other customizations that you might want! Further, one should be careful about not wearing too many such pieces at once, because that can take away the very essence of the jewelry, and give you a cluttered look that will not do you a lot of favors, no matter what kind of occasion it is. If pulled off properly, minimalistic jewelry is fit for all kinds of occasions and places.
The custom look
At the end of the day, the kind of jewelry that you wear should be as close a reflection of you as a person, and it is your tastes that should define the jewelry that you wear. This helps in making you feel comfortable with your look, and also gives you a look which is more honest and true. It is the kind of person you want the world to see, which should define the kind of jewelry that you.
Nowadays, there are various different kinds of customizations that you can make in your jewelry, such as text and photo-engravings, charms, and other kinds of personal messages or stories. There are various types of statement jewelry that can be worn in accordance to your personal preferences.
Going with custom pieces gives you a distinct presence which is reflected in your jewelry, and people are more likely to remember your look and personality. Custom jewelry is very popular nowadays, as people look to buy pieces that are truly special and unique.

These pieces are made in America using the best and 100% natural stones and metals, and every piece that we create is handmade and therefore truly unique, just like every person on this planet.

As a bonus, below we have given answers to certain common color-based questions that people might have, about specific types of jewelry.
What color clothing looks best with rose gold jewelry?
When you look for matching jewelry for your clothes, it is the color, style and whether the tone of the piece is complementary with the clothes that must be seen to make the correct decision. For rose gold jewelry, wearing darker shades is recommended. Rose gold jewelry is suitable for light colors too, but not if the clothing is too bright, or bold. Rose gold jewelry is more suitable for a subtle look.
What color clothing looks best with silver jewelry?
The reason silver jewelry is so extremely popular has got much to do with its versatility. Silver jewelry can be worn with all sorts of clothes and other jewelry, regardless of color or style. Further, wearing different types of silver jewelry can also give you a keen, confident look.
Silver jewelry is also particularly suitable for formal and semi-formal occasions, like dinners and the workplaces! One final recommendation that we would make is the aquamarine pendant necklace, which has also gained immense popularity over recent months. You can see it in the picture below:
In conclusion, the kind of jewelry that you wear speaks a lot about the kind of person you are, and choosing the right look will go a long way in giving you the faith and confidence in the jewelry you wear!
