You know what I love about getting dressed? THat no matter what I put on there is jewelry for everything. It is those little accent pieces that can change the look for the better (and let’s be real with one another, the not so better, also). Most men and women have hairstyle or clothing obsessions, but, honestly, no outfit looks amazing without the right accessories to compliment it.
It does not matter if you go to the office, have a night out on to town, a girls night out, or a vacation, a few small accent pieces can go a long way to make the simple look amazing. This is just one reason you need jewelry. But not just any jewelry! You need to start your jewelry collection if you haven’t already and change it up a bit since not all jewelry looks good with everything..
Here are the top seven must-have jewelry items every woman needs.
1. Diamond (Or Cz) Earrings
Diamond earrings, however, are a completely different story. They look great when you go to lunch or in a big gathering. They shine in the limelight of weekend outings and make you look gorgeous for special dates and family events.
2. Pearl Earrings
Pearls do everything that diamonds can do in their unique way. More so, they make you look more sophisticated (especially if that’s the type of style you tend to go for). Get a pair of pearls earrings for a simple yet iconic look. You can save your diamonds for the moments when you want to stand out and wear your pearls regularly as a fresh and classic touch to any look.
3. A String Of Pearls
Pearls are nature’s way of saying “you are refined and mature”. You look casual when necessary, but you can also use them to dress up. This is specifically true if you pair your pearl earrings with a pearl necklace, one of the supreme iconic pieces of jewelry out there.
A pearl necklace is also great for a job interview, graduation, or anniversary dinner. When it comes to looking sophisticated, you really can’t go wrong with a set of pearls in any color..
4. A Pendant Necklace
The pendant is the wow aspect of a necklace. It creates a balance between saying, “look at me” and “there is nothing to see here.” It is bold and beautiful, but a bit mysterious and reserved. Pendants have a way of adding a little emphasis to any plain necklace.
5. A Long And Elegant Necklace
Long necklaces are the perfect complement to at most with high necklines or generally simple outfits. They add a little oomph to things in a different and eye-catching way without being over the top (unless you have on an open top – which is a current fashion trend right now). Pair a long name plate necklace with your favorite jeans and a white t-shirt or wear with a cocktail dress, or long gown. Either way, you are sure to look glorious.
6. Simple And Stylish Bracelets
Bracelets come in all shapes and sizes. You may want to wear a bangle bracelet one day, a tennis bracelet the next day, and then a simple clasp bracelet the next day. Particular women have one or two bracelets that they love, while others only wear them for special occasions. Decide what kind of fashionista you want to be, then find the right bracelets to match. Also know that you can wear several bracelets at one time, too. And on some occasions, the more the merrier.
Another thing that every woman needs are rings. It is especially true if you are not very fond of bracelets. Simple little rings look lovely when you place them on your fingers in unique ways (like on the thumb or top of the finger versus the bottom).
If you only have a few things on this classic jewelry list, don’t worry. You have time to collect the ones you want. Just keep your clothing in mind as you shop to create the best possible combinations. But don’t be afraid to try something new!
