Pairing Your Jewellery To Every Occasion

Not sure which type of jewellery to wear? Certain jewellery can be more suited to certain situations, helping to attract the right attention and compliment your personality and appearance. Here are just several situations along with some tips on matching them with the right bling.

On a casual day

If it’s your day off and you haven’t got any big plans, it’s likely you may not want to wear any jewellery at all as you haven’t got anyone to impress. However, if wearing some jewellery makes you feel more comfortable, you could always stick to stud earrings and simple chain necklaces or bracelets. If you’re doing housework or doing something outdoorsy, you may not want loose jewellery that gets in the way, not may you want to wear something expensive that could get lost of damaged. All in all, wear what makes you comfortable.

At work

Some workplaces may have strict regulations when it comes to which jewellery is allowed. In most cases you should stay subtle as to remain professional – anything too blingy could seem showy, whilst anything can rattle could be distracting. Silver tends to have a more professional feel than gold. In some trades, you may be able to get away with cufflinks or a pendant themed around your work.

At a party

A party is your time to let loose – you can pretty much wear whatever you want. This is your time for experimenting with piercing jewellery and more blingy necklaces. Ideally, you should try and have no more than two statement pieces and keep other bits subtler (e.g. a chunky bangle and a shiny necklace). If there are too many statement pieces competing for attention it will take away the impact of each one

At a wedding

Weddings are the perfect opportunity to wear classic showy jewellery. Silver and crystal jewellery work the best at a wedding – whether you’re the bride or a guest. Try to match all your jewellery rather than using different metals and designs, especially if you don’t want to distract people from your dress.

At a festival

If you’re going to a festival, you probably want to part with precious metals and stick to more ethnic pieces made of beads and leather and more quirky items. Feel free to wear multiple bracelets and necklaces at the same time and be as showy as you want – everyone else will be going overboard with their appearance at a festival, so you may as well make the most of it.

On a date

If you’re on a date, you should try to wear jewellery that accentuates your natural beauty or brings out your personality. For highlighting your most beautiful assets, consider gemstones that match the colour of your eyes or metals that contrast your skin tone. Also consider items that are conversation starters and help to tell more about you – this could include birthstones, lockets, family heirlooms or pendants relating to hobbies and interests.

    There are some great tips for wearing jewellery here. I usually just wear two rings and maybe a delicate bracelet on a day-to-day basis. And then I choose statement pieces for when I’m going on a night out or something.

    I want to wear jewellery more and could definitely do with increasing my options (which I’m going to try and remember when it’s Christmas!). I have a bracelet that I wear every day but that’s it. Great post.

    I’m not a huge jewellery goer when it comes to accessorising. I normally just wear my standard jewellery that I have on all the time, unless it’s a really special occasion then I shall switch it up x
