Worn without the right jewelry, even the best outfit can be quite boring. And since buying accessories every time you think of a new outfit is not something most of us can afford, you should make sure that you have everything you need jewelry-wise right at home, in one of those ornate little boxes that looks so damn nice on your vanity.
Without further ado, here are 10 jewelry pieces that no fashionable woman can do without. Believe me, once you have all these, you can be sure that every single one of your outfits will look absolutely fabulous.
A statement necklace
You know how sometimes you get dressed and look in the mirror, only to realize that your outfit – which looked just perfect in your head – seems to be rather plain now. Yes, everything is in place, but at the same time, there’s one more thing that you need in order for it to live up to your expectations.
In cases like this, the diagnosis – if I can call it that way – is quite simple. You need a bold piece of jewelry that will make both you and your gorgeous outfit stand out. Statement necklaces scream confidence and they are so versatile, that they work with almost every outfit. In fact, you could wear one with a deux-piece at work and also with a little black dress for a date in the evening. Awesome, right?
In fact, you should stock up on statement necklaces. They are not nearly as expensive as other pieces of jewelry, especially if you’re always on the lookout during sales.
A strand of pearls
So subtle, yet so iconic, pearls will never go out of fashion. Keep in mind that trends may come and go, but pearls are here to stay. Take a look at what celebrities have been wearing on the Red Carpet at the Oscars, for instance. We had pearls 50 years ago, and we have them now too.
Which is exactly why every woman should invest in a strand of pearls. These babies are a complete life saver when you want to transition from a casual outfit to a sexy one, not mention that they can instantly make you look confident and sophisticated. What more could you possibly wish for?
More often than not, a strand of white pearls is enough to transform your look, especially if you don’t usually wear earrings. But if your ears are already pierced, then there’s no reason not to get a pair of pearl studs too. They will gorgeously compliment almost every outfit you can think of, and they will look absolutely amazing paired up with necklace mentioned earlier.
Just make sure that you choose the right size of pearls for you. While you may get away with a chunkier pearl necklace even as a petite woman, if you have a small face, chances are that you won’t look that good with huge pearls, so go for smaller, more subtle ones instead.
I have already told you that pearls are a classic, but the same – or even more – can be said about diamonds. Diamonds studs are without a doubt one of those classic pieces of jewelry that look good on absolutely everyone. No matter if you are going out for brunch with your girlfriends or on a hot evening date with your man, a pair of diamond studs will always compliment your look in a way that nothing else can.
Don’t worry if you can’t afford diamonds, though. It’s not the end of the world if you wear moissanite or cubic zirconia instead of real diamonds. Nobody will notice and you will look a million dollars anyway, especially if you can carry yourself with as much confidence as you would with a few carats hanging from your ears.
An all-purpose necklace
You know those simple, but really cute necklaces that seem to go with everything, including tracksuits and sneakers or UGGs? Well, you need one of those too.
Because let’s face it, we all have those days when merely putting an outfit together seems like crazy effort. If you bring accessories into the question, you might as well give up on going out already.
However, as you may have already found out, looking like a million bucks makes you feel, well, like a million bucks. And jewelry, however subtle, has a way of making this feeling even more intense. That’s exactly why you should have an all-purpose necklace, preferably one made out of gold or silver – because you’ll be wearing this baby so often that you want it to be made out of a durable material.
To sum up, chances are that you have these lovely pieces of jewelry in your glamorous, but just in case you don’t, I hope I’ve given you some pretty good ideas for your next shopping spree.
