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.

Destinations to Visit this Summer & What to Wear

After what feels like years of waiting, we are finally approaching the brink of summer. Soon, it will be the season where we can wear dresses, shorts, sandals and all of our other summer pieces without fear of catching a cold or getting rained on. If you also live in the UK, you are sure to understand what a big deal that is!

As if that wasn’t reason enough to love summer, this is also the best time of year for exploration and travel. For those of you who are yet to decide on a summer holiday destination yet, here are two completely different options that are likely to peak your interest as well as what to wear while you’re there.

Paris

What To Do:

Whether you’re travelling alone, with friends or with your significant other, Paris is always a good idea. After all, who would want to miss out on the chance to sip coffee and munch on croissants while basking in the glory of the Notre Dame, the Eifel Tower or the Louvre? Plus, for the shoppers out there The City of Love is also home to a variety of stores including intimate boutiques as well as some of the top designer retailers in the world such as Chanel, Sessun and Cancan.

 

What To Wear:

Parisian style is based entirely on the idea of remaining chic yet tailored; stylish but with a decidedly conservative edge. Usually, French socialites tend to adhere to the “no more than three colours” rule and opt for neutral tones over bright, flashy hues. Fortunately, it is easier to recreate this style than you might think. All you need is some well-fitting ankle length jeans, some tidy pumps and a shirt with a feminine edge to emulate Parisian elegance like a pro.

Las Vegas

What To Do:

For those of you who fancy going further afield this summer, how could Las Vegas possibly be ignored? In fact, if you have a bit of a wild side there are few places that will suit you better that this not so humble Nevada desert town. Las Vegas is home to The Strip after all: 4.2 miles packed full of hotel resorts, entertainment venues and restaurants. There, you’ll find some of the most famous casinos and games in the world including roulette, poker and slots such as those in the NetEnt Rocks Trilogy. Those of you who have been tempted to try it yourself in the past by playing at tech-savvy online casinos such as Vegas Casino – who offers a variety of Vegas-style games including a live casino – are sure to understand exactly why Las Vegas is a great place to visit.

What To Wear:

As you may imagine, styling Las Vegas is a bit trickier than Paris as there are no rules about fashion but many about attire. That is, you can wear whatever you please but there will be some venues that refuse entry if you’re looking a little too casual. Still, all you have to do is bear that in mind while packing and you should be fine: just opt for a casual-formal attire. A nice dress or some tailored trousers with a smart top are sure to do the trick.

There you have it: two very different travel option for you to mull over this summer. Where are you planning to head this summer or are you yet to make a decision? Let us know in the comments below.

 

 

Amy Schumer Covers Glamour Magazine UK May 2017

Amy Schumer – American stand-up comedian, writer, actress, and producer, is the cover girl for Glamour Magazine May 2017, and in this issue, she talks about her fame, love life, her happiness and a lot more.

 

 

This issue looks very interesting, I am loving the features on the cover. For the price of £1, it looks really worth it.

I know little or nothing about Amy Schumer, and I am curious to know more about her, so I can clearly see myself reading this issue. I find her very funny, and I believe she speaks the truth.

Here are some of Amy’s famous quotes.

 

On Body Image in Hollywood

“At my first audition when I was 21, they were like, ‘You should either lose weight or gain a bunch of weight, like be the fat friend or the romantic lead.’ Can you believe they said this?” she said. “But I feel like more than other people saying it, it’s a self-inflicted thing. We put pressure on ourselves and hold ourselves to this unrealistic standard.'”

I can believe they said that. Hollywood must be the craziest place in the world!

 

On the Kardashians

“We have to be a role model for these little girls. Because who do they have? All they have literally is the Kardashians.
“A whole family who take the faces they were born with as a light suggestion? No!
We used to have Khloe and Khloe was ours. Whenever there is a group of women you identify with one of them right? Like with Sex and The City, you were like I’m such a Samantha.’
“Khloe has lost half her body weight. Khloe has lost a Kendall. We have nothing. I want good role models!”

Oouch!

 

I am looking forward to grabbing a copy of this issue. I am 100% sure it would be a good read. Amy Schumer speaks the truth every time.

What do you think? Are you a fan of Amy Schumer?
