A Summer Holiday Wishlist

I will be jetting off on holiday very soon, and I am super excited. I need a mid year break and this holiday is happening at the perfect time because I am so worn out. I have started to plan my summer holiday wardrobe. I have a few gaps in my summer wardrobe to fill, so I been busy doing some urgent online shopping. I still have my eye on a few pieces and accessories I am yet to get, and I am hoping a miraculous money tree appears so I can sort out all my summer wardrobe needs.

Here are some of the pieces and accessories I currently have my eye on –

A good pair of sunglasses is always needed in the summer, especially on holiday. I wear contact lenses most times, so I can’t leave the house without a pair in my handbag. This black Ralph Lauren sunglasses is a such beauty, I like the shape of it.  I have nothing like this in my sunglasses collection. I am seriously lusting after this pair and hoping Santa comes early! What do you think of it?

How to Style Jewellery with Different Outfits

I love to look good, whether it’s a day trip shopping or an evening out. I love my accessories; I believe no outfit is ever complete without accessories. And when I say accessories, of course I mean jewellery. I’m not one to splurge extravagantly and tend to stick to a few high-quality pieces of designer jewellery as an investment. I then take these and style them in the best way to complement what I’m wearing.

High class jewellery can elevate any outfit to the next level. No matter what gender you are, jewellery can add the perfect finishing touch to what you’re wearing. Here are a few ideas on how best to style your jewellery –

Complementing Not Competing

Even if you don’t tend to wear too much jewellery, a pendant or a necklace is a good choice as you can dress it up or down to match your personal style. However, it’s important to have a selection of different types of necklace as one size definitely doesn’t fit all.

If you’re wearing a V-neck top or dress, a slightly longer necklace can work really well – but make sure it’s not so long that it vanishes down your cleavage! A box, sweetheart or deep U-shaped neckline will need a much shorter necklace. If you want to show off a statement necklace or one of the modern layered necklaces, a roll neck or crew neck in a block colour will provide the perfect base.

Halter necks are the one exception: they don’t work well with necklaces. With all the emphasis on the neckline, there’s just too much going on for a necklace to be anything but a distraction. I see ladies break this rule everything and it looks horrible.

Consider Other Accessories

When you’re putting your outfit together, thinking about the colour and style of your clothing is common sense, but don’t forget about the rest of your accessories too.

Bags are a big feature point for most women and if you’ve chosen a large and chunky style, then delicate and understated jewellery will just be overpowered. You should also make sure that hair accessories such as bands and clips, plus belts, bags and shoes sync in style with your jewellery, and that the colours look good together as well.

Keep an Arm Free

There’s something very powerful about a man wearing jewellery when it’s done without any sense of overt showiness, and carried off with an almost casual air.

Designer jewellery for men has come full circle and it’s once again in vogue, but now there’s a far greater variety of materials and styles to choose from. There are precious metals such as gold and silver, as well as very contemporary designs including leather, beads and braids. Most of the rules have gone out of the window: forget about not mixing beads and leather with a smart suit. You can now find luxury men’s bracelets in a wide range of styles and materials, so you can rock that suit jacket with a braided cord if that’s what you like.

The one rule that still applies is that you should try to keep it to just one wrist. If you usually wear a watch, you’ll need to pick a bracelet which works well next to it. Wearing accessories on both wrists is still a fashion faux pas that no man should make.

Classy and Contemporary

I like to think that no matter what kind of jewellery I choose to wear, I get my styling on point. Taking a few moments to think about your outfit in its entirety can make a big difference and help you to get the most out of the accessories you’re rocking.
