Jewelry can make a basic outfit look complete or a fashionable outfit look outdated. Your jewelry says a lot about you, so show off your jewelry and let your personality shine. There are several ways to match your jewelry and there is no hard rule as long as what you wear makes you feel attractive, comfortable and confident.

Match Your Jewelry

Match your jewelry according to the color of your clothes. For example, gold jewelry goes well with dark colors such as black or burgundy. Silver jewelry works well with lighter shades such as white and pale blues. If your jewelry has gems in warm tones such as red, orange yellow, complement it with clothes in cool colors such as blue, green and violet.

Match your jewelry to your face shape, including your neckline. For example, if you have a round face, select jewelry in elongated shapes such as diamonds. If your face is narrow, try hoop earrings. Also wear jewelry proportionate to the size of your face. For example, if you have a small face, wear diminutive jewelry such as solitaires or those with simple designs. If your face is larger, you can wear bigger pieces of jewelry, which will not overpower your face. If you have a long neck, you can wear chokers or pendants to accentuate your neckline.

Match your jewelry to your personality. If you have an outgoing personality, wear fashion jewelry with lots of color and panache. If you are less outgoing, select smaller pieces with simple designs, such as small flowers or solitaire diamonds. If you have a no-nonsense and straightforward personality, look for chunkier jewelry with bold designs.

Match jewelry to the occasion. For example, for a formal gathering, you can wear fine jewelry, rhinestones or pieces with more intricate designs. For a casual gathering, you can wear fashion jewelry or jewelry with semi-precious gems. In a professional setting, wear smaller pieces with simple designs, such as solitaire diamonds.
