Fashion icon Coco Chanel once said, “Before leaving the house, a lady should look in the mirror and remove one accessory.” This can be good advice, but fashion is always breaking the rules. Sometimes it’s just plain fun to indulge and connect with your creative side. Experimenting with looks both bold and delicate as well as timeless and trendy is something everyone can enjoy.
Lines of Elegance
Sometimes the biggest statement can come from a simple look; think understated, yet bold. Chandelier and drop earrings are classic and an elegant way to draw attention to your neckline and collarbone. Enhance the look by wearing a top with an open neckline, such a sweetheart, plunging, or V-neck neckline. This combination will create a feminine, elegant, and daring look for a big night.
Compare and Contrast
Trends may come and go, but opposites will always attract. When picking an outfit, think about how your jewelry can enhance an outfit or how your pick of clothing can enhance a statement piece. A rough motor jacket and combat boots can be balanced by delicate necklaces and simple studs. Are you wearing jeans and a plain T-shirt or a simple little black dress? Use this blank canvas to elevate your look with a bold necklace, vibrant colors, or artful layering.
Showcase a Shining Personality
Both jewelry and fashion are excellent ways to express yourself. Look for unique and meaningful pieces to create a signature and dynamic look. Or better yet, personalize your look with a custom piece from J.F. Kruse, a process with which you are involved from start to finish. At J.F. Kruse, we can help you create a unique item of jewelry to enhance your style and personality.
Coordinate with Makeup
Coordinating your makeup with your jewelry and fashion doesn’t have to mean creating a matchy-matchy look. Use makeup shades and tones to enhance your accessory choices. Think warm bronzes and a sun-kissed glow to enhance rose-gold jewelry. Pair a daring smoky eye with an edgy dress or metallic jewelry. Create big and bold lashes with a nude lip for a mod look, and pair it with geometric-shaped and graphic-colored earrings and bangles. Don’t underestimate the power of nail polish either! A well-done manicure can really showcase the perfect engagement ring.
Fashion, jewelry, and makeup are excellent tools for self-expression. At the end of the day, jewelry and fashion should be a fun and an exciting creative outlet that helps you show off your personality. Experiment with colors, cuts, and textures, and have fun creating your signature look or making a new and bold statement!
