Jewelry is mainly about expressing yourself, using a piece to show your style, portray a certain mood, or even as sentimental value and a piece that you chose to always wear no matter the outfit choice.
There is never a definitive way to match your jewelry to your outfit as it can depend on the trend of the moment, what the occasion is and whether you are more of a subtle type or you think the more necklaces the better. From the early noughties’ fascination with chunky necklaces and bangles to the 2022 trend of dainty jewelry being the go-to for all.
This is a guide to some of the dos and don’ts of styling your outfits and enhancing your look in the right way. Jewelry is a personal choice and gives each person to style a piece in their own way and create a completely new look, these rules will point you in the right direction.
When putting your outfit together, it is important to remember to consider the jewelry you are planning to wear as you want to make sure that it is in keeping with the theme of the party and the dress code established by the host.
Match bold prints with simple jewelry
You can’t get more ‘garden party’ than with a bold flower print dress. This design of dress has been the style choice for many years when it comes to garden parties, this style is incredibly vintage inspired and has constantly stayed in fashion.
We recommend floral and bold print dresses like the one below, to choose to accessorize with simple, delicate, and simple jewelry. This can be done with small gem earring studs, a thin necklace, or a bracelet.
With bold prints, it is important to remember that less is more with jewelry when styling floral dresses.
Match The Theme
Most garden parties that you attend will have some sort of theme, whether that be seasonally dependent or chosen by the host.
It is important to notice a dress code or theme listed on the invitation, from this you can determine what style you want to go for and bring together there. If you can see that there is a light blue theme, then it could be a lovely touch to incorporate this color scheme into your jewelry whether that be through a pendant, colorful beads, or earrings.
Keep it Simple
When styling your outfit for an upcoming garden party event, it can sometimes be an overwhelming thought to decide what to wear and make sure that you don’t stick out. Depending on the theme, it may be better to elect for a more simplistic outfit.
There is a beauty in simplicity and this can be shown through delicate plain gold or silver jewelry, without any gems.
Accessorize Your Outfit
Accessorizing your outfit can completely transform it, the beauty of accessorizing is that you are able to remove elements of it if you decide to throughout the day. It can sometimes be difficult to know what the rest of the guests are wearing and to avoid any anxiety, electing for more bold accessories and keeping an outfit more simple allows you to work with any eventuality.
How To Style Gingham
Gingham dresses are a staple for summer and can be the perfect option for a garden party. These dresses also come in a range of colors, meaning you can choose a brighter color or alternatively go for something more muted.
No matter the color, gingham dresses pair beautifully with chunky jewelry. Whether that be chunky earrings, necklaces, or bracelets, they are perfect for adding that extra element to your outfit and elevating it.
