What you wear and how you accessorize for your night on the town may be different depending on if you are going out with family, friends or going on a date. The occasion may also influence your decisions. Here are some tips to help you decide.

1. Have fun

Firstly you should be having fun with your jewelry. Choose jewelry that suits your personality and makes you feel happy. Do not wear heavy or uncomfortable jewelry if you plan for a full night. You might find yourself pulling and fixing your jewelry all night instead of enjoying yourself i.e. tight clip-on earrings get more uncomfortable the longer you have them on.

 

2. Consider the neckline

Consider the neckline of the dress or top you are wearing. A plunging neckline would go well with a long necklace that drops down your cleavage. You can enhance the drama with an extra long pendant necklace. A scoop neckline works well with a necklace that has volume, is layered or have large pendants. If you are the conservative type you can go with layered delicate pieces.

 

3. Balance your jewelry

Balance your jewelry. If you look in the mirror and it looks like you are wearing a lot of accessories, you quite probably are. Try not to wear all bold pieces. If the necklace is a statement piece, then tone down on the bracelet and earrings and allow the necklace to be the centerpiece. If you are wearing statement earrings you might want to forego the necklace and just wear some bold bracelets with it instead.

 

4. Think about what you are wearing

Think about what you are wearing. There is no point wearing beautiful statement bracelets if you are wearing long sleeves that covers the bracelet. If there are no sleeves on the dress try a bangle stack or cuff bracelet. You may also have some fun with charmed bracelet stacks.

 

5. Think of the hairstyle

What hairstyle are your sporting? Do you have a short cut, locks, shoulder length hair or are you going to have it swept up in one? Big statement earrings such as hoops tend to go well with short cuts or with your hair swept away from your face for the casual look but if you are aiming for elegance some studs would be perfect.

 

6. Experiment with colors

Have some summer fun and experiment with colors. You cannot be too bright with your colors in summer or any other time I think. Consider colors that compliment your skin tones (see a previous article in out blog)  For warm skin tones green, brown, mustard yellow and warm reds, are good choices or you may play around with peach, coral, amber and gold.   Fairer skin with cooler undertones stay away from silver, white and from shades that are too bright and light. Stick with gold, bright blues, emeralds, and deep purples. Frosty shades of pink, ice blue and lavender also will look amazing.
