Selecting the appropriate jewelry for a formal event is a tough task, especially if you hardly have any experience in dressing for such events. Worry not, as finding the perfect necklace, set of earrings, and other accessories to highlight your or your partner’s outfit is quite simple. Here are a few tips that will help you the next time you need help to select the appropriate pieces for a black tie event.
Choosing the best pair of earrings is arguably the toughest part of dressing for a formal event, given the seemingly endless styles earrings are available in. As a rule of the thumb, you should let your attire dictate your earrings. If you are wearing a strapless dress, select longer earrings, as they fill out the space, while shorter earrings gel nicely with a dress that has shoulders. For pants suits, choose smaller, cluster earrings, as wearing anything bigger is usually distracting.
Sometimes less is more
Having a poor mixture of balance or far too much bling is one of the worst things you can do when selecting jewelry. Emphasizing on a single feature of your jewelry takes away the overall effect of your dress or hair as well as that of your accessories. Always err on the side of caution, if you have the choice, and choose a more subtle offering.
Picking the type of jewel
Jewels come in a wide range of hues and selecting the right colors is not always easy. Diamonds, rubies, and emeralds are excellent additions if there is a red carpet style entrance, as they tend to draw more attention towards you. Pearls and gold are simpler and are an elegant, stylish choice for black tie balls and galas.
Jewelry fashion is one of the defining aspects of your appearance at formal events, whether you are looking to boost your career, become the talk of the town, or simply make a dramatic entrance.
