Jewelry is the staple of every outfit no matter what the season is. However, just because it’s winter, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have the opportunity to show off your amazing jewelry. Matching jewelry with winter clothing can be a challenge, but it can also be a fun experience if you know what to look for. First of all, you don’t need to sacrifice your jewelry for the sake of scarves, hats, gloves.. When you take off your jacket and all additional “winter equipment”, all eyes will be on these statement pieces. Keep reading to find out how to pick out a perfect piece of jewelry for your winter outfit.
Turtleneck & a Cuban Chain
Pairing a turtleneck with a necklace can always be your go-to combination for winter months. Not only is this warm and cozy, it can look really stylish if you pick out a perfect type of accessory. Monochromatic turtlenecks and a stylish cuban chain can take the look to a new level in terms of elegance and style. If you have vividly coloured accessories you can add a pendant in the same colour to create more cohesion. This is a simple, but effective way to add depth to the look and strike a balance between the colour of the turtleneck and the silver metallic or gold plated jewelry.
A pair of fashionable statement IceLink earrings will highlight your face shape and accentuate your eye colour. If you opt for busy patterns for your outfit, then make sure the jewelry is simple in design, size and style. Showy accessories can work wonders for a night out, dinners at restaurants or when your makeup game needs to be strong. However, for a casual brunch or a business meeting our advice would be to keep it simple. Diamond stud earrings can soften your facial features and give more dimension to your entire appearance. If you have darker hair, think about blue or green pendants, and if your hair is lighter, go for something radiant such as pink, purple or fiery red.
Skin Tone and Face Shape
This goes for every season, not just winter. Pay attention to your skin tone and face shape to make sure you picked out jewelry that will compliment them instead of making them wider or paler than they actually are. For example, silver is a great pair for natural skin tones whereas gold will complement darker hair and matte skin. When it comes to face shapes, women with oval faces should avoid oval jewelry, but stick to triangular or stud earrings. Ladies who have a heart-shaped face will accentuate their natural facial features with drop earrings which don’t taper at the bottom.
Sweaters & Bracelets
If you’re a fan of bracelets, you don’t need to sacrifice them just because it’s time for oversized sweaters and long sleeves. You can still wear a sweater and a bracelet at the same time even though bracelets aren’t too visible when you wear sweaters or cardigans. However, what do you think about wearing bracelets atop your sweater? This can look really chic if the sweater has a straight hem and a simple design. Even tennis bracelets can be a great addition to oversized sweaters if you wear 3 of them in a row, so they look thicker and the chain appears stronger.
Complete the look with a set of bold or simple jewelry, depending on the occasion, and always take into consideration details such as outfit, makeup and additional accessories you decide to bring with you.
