How to Pair Your Jewelry with Your Hairstyle

Hair and jewelry are two things that can make or break an outfit. You can pair the cutest skirt with an amazing top, but still fall flat if your hair and accessories aren’t in sync. Of course, you can’t just wear any jewelry with any hairstyle and hope it works. They say that fashion is more of an art than a science, but there are some simple rules to follow to ensure you don’t commit a fashion faux pas. Here is a handy guide to help you create the perfect pairing of hair style and jewelry ensemble.

The up-do is a classic. It’s versatile enough to be used for everyday wear in the workplace, a night out, or even your wedding day. However, an up-do also means that more focus will be on your jewelry, so it needs to be chosen wisely. In the case of an up-do hair style, less is probably more.

A gold necklace will add flair to a plain up do or distract from a more elaborate one. If you want focus to be on the intricately woven style that you spent hours on, keep the neck jewelry toned down. Bold necklaces paired with elaborate hairdos can also be a bit much and make you seem gaudy or overly adorned. However, a simple, classy bun paired with a nice 22 karat gold necklace can add flair and elegance to your outfit. To get the best effect from an up-do paired with a necklace, wear a strapless dress to show off the gold jewelry and increase the elegance.

Earrings are also a tricky pairing with an up-do. Gold stud earrings are perfect for a simple look during the day. However, class up your ensemble for a night on the town with larger gold hoops. Mid-sized earrings like a simple drop earring or a relatively small chandelier earring are perfect with an up-do on any occasion. Because they don’t get lost in your hair, medium sized earrings can be fully appreciated when paired with an up-do. Also, medium-sized earrings aren’t too flashy and overwhelming like larger earrings can be when your hair is up.

This is not to say that large earrings cannot be worn with an up-do, but it needs to be done wisely. The best larger earrings to pair with an up-do are simple hoops or classy chandelier earrings. This is best done for formal occasions, and as such, the earrings should be simple, like beautiful 22 karat gold, possibly with a single color of gemstones. The earrings also shouldn’t look cheap, which can sometimes be the case with earrings that are made of cheap, easily-discolored metal or mixed materials. Bohemian-style earrings with cloth or wooden pieces are best saved for a half-up-half-down or fully down hairstyle.

half

One of the most versatile hairstyles, the half-up-half-down style is easy to create and can be both formal and informal. It’s an easy way to disguise a bad hair day, but it can also be an elegant look that was painstakingly arranged for your wedding day. Like the look itself, the jewelry necklace and earrings worn with it is just as versatile.

While stud earrings tend to get lost in a fully down hair style, a half-up-half-down style pulls your hair back the perfect amount to let the jewelry shine through. Medium or large earrings don’t feel like too much flash with your hair half down to surround them. If you choose to wear large earrings, a small, simple necklace or no necklace at all will give the most attention to your hair and earrings.

On that note, a large necklace can be a good idea with the half-up-half-down hair style, but should be balanced with small stud earrings and a simple top with a plain texture. It is difficult to impossible to wear a large, bold necklace with a top that has a pattern without looking like you are overdoing it. You can keep your hair back behind your shoulders to show off the necklace or wear it draped over your shoulders to minimize the necklace a little.

The long braid can have the same effects of a half-up-half-down hair style if it falls over one shoulder because it provides a contrast to the earrings’ texture and emphasizes the earring on the opposing side.

Sometimes, we have to let our manes flow free and it’s these times where we have the artistic license to wear big, bold jewelry pieces. Once again, the large earrings should be balanced with a smaller necklace and vice versa, but other than that, you have the freedom to wear the jewelry you want when your hair is down without seeming overly flashy.

A large, bold necklace peeking out from behind your hair can perfectly contrast with your hair’s texture. If you have straight hair, wear a heavily textured necklace to make it stand out more. Likewise, if your hair is curly, wear a smooth, shiny necklace made of flawless 22 karat gold to create contrast. Keep in mind that a large necklace will likely be hidden – at least partially – behind your hair, so no need to be shy. Dare to wear something bold and striking.

Stud earrings or even medium-sized earrings, gold or not, tend to get lost behind hair when it’s down, so don’t make small earrings the primary focus of your outfit if you aren’t tying your hair back. When long hair is down, it can seem like a backdrop for large earrings, both showcasing them and minimizing their flashiness.

If you follow these basic rules, you’re nearly guaranteed to avoid an outfit with awkwardly obvious earrings, a gaudy necklace, or an understated hair style. There is an elegance to gold, no matter the style, you just have to wear what’s right for you. Fashion is an art rather than a science, so make each outfit your own unique art piece to express your personal style.

Wedding Day Gold

After picking out the perfect dress for your big day, the next step is finding the right jewelry to compliment your fabulous look. Any bride-to-be knows how important it is to find just the right pieces to accompany their dress, no matter what it is that fits their own personal style. This can end up being a complicated decision. With so many jewelry styles out there, finding the right pieces to complete your look can almost be as difficult as finding the perfect dress. Knowing what will best compliment your dress however, will make picking out your jewelry almost as fun as finding the right dress.

Going with Gold

While gold jewelry may clash with a pure white dress, if you’ve chosen off-white, ivory, or a champagne hue, going with gold works great as it tends to highlight the creamy undertones found in these shades. Remember when choosing the perfect gold jewelry for your big day that unlike your dress that will only be worn once, the jewelry you decide on can be worn for years. Finding the right pieces will not only add some gorgeous pieces to your jewelry collection, but will remind you of your special day every time you wear them.

After you decide to go with gold is where things begin to get fun. While deciding on a dress is a once in a lifetime experience, deciding on the jewelry to match your dress can prove to be just as exciting. You know your ring is what is going to truly steal the show, but you’re also aware at what an amazing necklace will do to add brilliance to your look. This is the first piece of jewelry that many brides decide on, and when chosen correctly will make you shine.

Picking the Perfect Gold Necklace for Your Dress

The perfect necklace is out there and finding the right necklace for your dress is vital in creating the look of your dreams. The first thing you want to think about when finding the perfect necklace is what type of design is going to best flatter the dress you’ve chosen. You don’t want the necklace to compete with the neckline of your dress, and fortunately there are many different style options to choose from. Knowing what kind of style best flatters different necklines is a great place to start and will serve as a guide when picking the perfect piece.

Strapless Wedding Dress

Popular for years, the strapless wedding dress is as timeless as the right gold jewelry. This style that beautifully shows off the bride’s neck and shoulders can accompany many different necklace options, and is one of the most exciting types of dress to accessorize. The simpler your choice in dresses, the more bold you can go with your gold. If you’ve chosen a more elaborate gown, try something more understated like a delicate gold chain. You may even want to add an understated pendant that contains one of the theme colors you’ve chosen for your wedding or bouquet.

Spaghetti Strap Wedding Dress

If you choose to go with simple spaghetti straps, choosing a gold necklace that dips into the cleavage area of your chest can be stunning. If you’ve chosen a dress with more elaborate finishes, a necklace will have the tendency to make your look to busy. Opting for gold earrings or a gold bracelet may work better in this case.

V-Neck Wedding Dress

The V-neck dress is becoming an increasingly popular choice with brides and can be one of the most beautiful ways to compliment the right gold necklace. This look can be dramatic when paired with a stunning long, gold chain. Adding a pendant encased in gold to this chain can take your look to another level.

High Neck Wedding Gown

This classic style calls for a piece of elegant simplicity. A longer gold piece is the optimal choice in this case and should be chosen to flow with the style of the dress. The simpler your style, the bolder you can choose to go with whatever gold necklace fits your personal taste. If your dress is more ornate, choosing to go without a necklace and opt for a pretty pair of gold earrings instead may be all you need.

Whatever style dress you’ve chosen for your big day, finding the right gold necklace to compliment your gown is half the fun. Knowing what gold piece works best for each type of dress there is will make shopping for your wedding day jewelry a breeze.

Whether they’re studs, hoops, or something that dangles delicately against your neck, a pair of gold earrings will complete the necessities of any woman’s gold jewelry collection. Earrings are something that have a tendency to make a woman feel complete even if it’s the only piece of jewelry she has on.

Studs are a classic design that can be dressed up or down. They add a certain sophistication to a woman’s style even if she’s dressed in her most casual of clothes. Studs can be any woman’s go-to earring and will pull together pretty much anything a woman has on.

Hoops are a very stylist choice for women and are something that can be plain or dressed up in design. Plain or embellished with stones, hoops come in an array of different sizes and it’s important to pick the size that fits your own unique style.

If on the other hand your style is a bit more eclectic, a bigger hoop may just be exactly what your assortment of gold is missing.

Whether you’ve been a long-time devotee of gold jewelry or are just beginning to see the allure gold offers, finding a necklace, a set of bangles and some gold earrings is the perfect beginning to what will more than likely turn into a long-term love affair.

Gold will never go out of style and investing in these three simple pieces is something every woman who loves jewelry should put at the top of her list. Sometimes all that glitters really is gold.
