The secret of styling, no matter how simple or impressive, is almost always to combine the right clothes with the right jewelry
In fact, women spend an average of 90 minutes a week in their wardrobes trying to choose what to wear and, since jewellery is a key element of your total outfit, why shouldn't the process include proper jewellery sorting?
Have you chosen your outfit but can't combine it with the right jewellery? Don't worry, we have the solution for you. The right choice of jewellery can boost your look in an ideal way or it can undermine it. It all depends on your own mood for styling.
1. Jewellery varies depending on the occasion
Bangle bracelets do not fit very well when typing on a keyboard, so if you aim for a 'work outfit' and your work involves a lot of time on the computer, you might want to skip the big and hanging bracelets.
Also, choosing jewellery for a Saturday cup of coffee or tea certainly won't be the same as choosing jewellery for a night of frantic clubbing.
2. Colorful designs and simple jewellery go together
Intense and elaborate jewellery can steal the thunder from the rest of your look. Select minimal hoops, such as Hidden hoop earrings by Emmanuela.
3.Larger earrings highlight your face
Your dress may be the right one, but if you're going to make your face stand out, choose a fancy pair of earrings. The 'statement' earrings frame your face and highlight your glow!
Of course you have to take into account the shape of your face and which couple of earrings will best highlight your peculiarities, the ones that make you so beautiful, e.g. ladies with heart-shaped faces may prefer dangle earrings while ladies with oval faces should consider studs and triangular earrings to highlight their cheekbones.
4. Jewellery according to skin tone
Jewellery should not only match your outfit... Women who care about styling, know well that their jewellery should flatter their skin tone as well.
Silver typically illuminates light-natural tones more, while gold is particularly suited to dark hair and bronzed skin. Lighter skin tones fit well with gemstones such as red, purple and blue, but platinum is an excellent choice of metal for lighter beige leather tones. Warm skin tones are beautifully combined with yellow, orange and green gemstones. In Emmanuela - handcrafted for you, you will find jewelry in various color tones of 925 sterling silver, such as gold plated, rose gold, oxidized, bronze or copper.
5. 'Warmer' colors in jewelry match more with "cold" tones on clothes
Rubies and amber gems make a statement in themselves, they are 'statement jewelry'. These colors are fiery, intense and look great in black and white. Warm gems are also beautifully combined with simple blue or purple material. For example, a set of rubies over a blue wrap completes your look ideally
6. 'Colder' colors in jewelry match better wtih 'warm' tones on clothes
There is a science behind the colors of fashion; many stylists refer to the color wheel for inspiration and choose their outfits from it
The color wheel tells us that warm and cool shades are mixed in a variety of ways, for example gems in deep green and dark blue color ideally suited to a yellow or orange dress
Achieving a balance between 'cold' and 'warm' colors is basically the epitome of styling! Try to coordinate your jewelry and clothes to become a proper fashionista.
7. Diamonds are woman's best friend.
It's not new, we all know that diamonds have been a favorite jewel of women and men since they were first discovered thousands of years ago
There's a good reason these gems were and are so popular: diamonds go with everything
Are you not sure how to coordinate your jewelry with the outfit?
8. White pearls and clothes in sea tones
9. Gold, Black and White
Focus on matching your bold black or gold with simple and classic looks, such as the classic black dress or a white pair of pants with a white top
10. Combine summer and spring ensembles with jewels in colder colors
Jewelry is the No1 accessory!

Don't forget, the right accessories can boost every look with impressive results and the basic rule is one: don't load your outfit with unnecessary items, as the most minimal jewellery is what will make your clothes stand out!
