Jewelry should not upstage you. I pick one hot point on my body that I'm going to highlight. Let one area do the singing - you don't want to hear three songs at once.
— Padma Lakshmi
A woman's love of jewelry can never be coerced; if present, it can only find a way to reveal itself. Any woman can buy and own jewelry, but how she manages to incorporate it in her lifestyle requires a keen sense of fashion. Of course, men will argue that women already have so much in their closets already. So, why does she want more? To that, all I can say is, "When we think about it, it's never enough." And the missing or additional items that every woman needs to have in her closet are presented in this article.
* The following list is presented in no particular order. Every piece is equally important, and only a woman can understand that.
A 'must wear' for evening events, chandelier earrings make your face pop without you having to do much. They are the right fit for any evening attire and make you look classy.
Wear a set of bangles to exude a more carefree attitude, or a delicate, eye-catching bracelet for the elegant look. The only thing you got to keep an eye on is the ever-changing trends so that you're updated with the current fashion.
Making a bold statement, cocktail rings are surely here to stay. With so many designs, shapes, sizes, colors, and creations, cocktail rings can be worn with practically any outfit. So, grab one each for your favorite dress, tops, and gowns, and you're all set to dazzle.
Even though it may not appeal to your taste much, metallic cuffs are supposed to say 'big and bold.' They look amazing with skirts, dresses, and even a corset top.
Whether you choose a single, long necklace or a layered one, this piece of jewelry can easily make its transition from day to night. And if you want, you can even add a small pendant that'll go great with the outfit.
Diamond studs are versatile and elegant. However, if your budget doesn't permit you to buy one, choose stud earrings in white sapphire or other semiprecious stones. It is less expensive, but looks just as gorgeous.
A modern and eternal piece, hoop earrings work well with all types of face structures, outfits, and style. These earrings don't just stand out, but mold themselves in the different outfits they are paired with.
For plain necklace chains, you can add unusual and funky pendants to give it oomph. Wear it on a classic white shirt, sexy tops, or with a LBD.
There are so many choices for long drop earrings. Depending on your preference, you can get these earrings in pearls, silver, gold, beads, semiprecious stones, rhinestones, copper, or even feathers.
No, pearls are not just for older women. For a sophisticated evening outfit (and many times, wedding gowns), a pair of pearl earrings is a bliss. Pearls are elegant, classy, and stylish on any given day.
One of the most desired pieces in today's fashion scene, a huge attention-grabbing statement necklace portrays beauty, style, and individuality. Anyone who lays eyes on it won't be able to take them off.
A symbol of simplicity and beauty, the pearl necklace is undoubtedly an everlasting piece of jewelry. Wear one for a social occasion or while you're at work; nothing says 'beauty' more appropriately than pearls.
Note: Many stylists are suggesting the addition of menswear-inspired watches as they combine masculine and feminine styles together.
If you want to downplay your girly jewelry, a menswear-inspired watch is the perfect solution. Plus, you don't have to invest much either. Just borrow it from your boyfriend anytime your outfit requires one.
These items are necessary and perfect for every woman's everyday fashion. The key to carry off any of the pieces is to not go over-the-top. Think elegance, yet keep the overall look clean and simple.
