Let your jewellery talk…
If there is one thing the celebrity watchers all agree on, it’s the profusion of statement jewellery on the red carpets across the world. Amidst all the glitter and glamour of the celebrations, what stood out were the statement pieces worn by the stars.
Scarlett Johansson’s Piaget ear cuff, Gwenyth Paltrow’s ruby teardrop earrings and Julianne Moore’s spiral diamond earrings were the toast of the twitterati. At Cannes 2015, it was Natalie Portman who grabbed the attention with her De Grisogono’s Gocce earrings. Other trendsetting jewellery on display were Scarlett Johansson’s a green bib necklace, Naomi Watts’ splendid Chopard neckpiece and Margot Robbie’s “Zip Antique Colombine” necklace.
With the divas leading the way, modern architectural earrings and statement jewellery have really gained in popularity this season. And if you plan on following the trend, there are a few simple pointers you need to keep in mind.
Keep It Solo
Remember to keep it simple. You can use the statement piece to add the sizzle to a plain outfit. But wearing too many statement pieces or wearing them too close to each other is a strict no-no. The overcrowded look will do nothing for either your outfit or the jewellery itself. Preferably wear just one spectacular piece (maybe bold earrings or a unique neckpiece) and let it take the centre stage.
Keep It Complementary
When wearing statement earrings, remember that these will be the first thing that will catch the eye. Choose the earrings carefully; choose earrings that suit the shape of your face and accentuate your best features. Coordinate bold earrings with your hairstyle to get the right balance for a complete look.
Keep It Simple
When it comes to outfits, keep it simple. Avoid busy patterns and loud embellishments since it is your statement piece that should stand out. With bold neckpieces and earrings, keep your hairstyle and your makeup understated to create a great overall effect.
When it comes to statement jewellery, less is definitely more. So forgo all other dazzle and let just your statement piece do the talking for you.
