6 Easy, Foolproof Ways To Style Jewellery With Your Date Night Outfits
Jewellery is often the finishing touch to any outfit, and can add a whole new vibe to an otherwise regular getup. In particular, fine jewellery always brings a touch of sophistication, which makes it perfect for dressy date nights and fancy dinners out with your girlfriends.
Whether you’re a newbie to fine jewellery or just have too many pieces that you’ve lost track of how to mix and match, here are 6 easy, foolproof jewellery styling tips that will make dolling up a breeze.
Note: All jewellery featured are available at Maxi-Cash stores in Singapore.
Read on for our jewellery styling tips!
#1: Pair long or double-layered necklaces with sweetheart necklines
A flirty sweetheart neckline goes perfectly with longer or double-layered necklaces. This balance of space draws an equal amount of attention to your collarbone and jewellery, and allows both your bling and outfit to stand out in their own right without other distractions.
Here, we’ve layered a “Love” necklace with Eternity, a heart-shaped necklace in romantic rose gold from Citigems, matched with a fun polka-dotted dress. Who says you have to keep it plain when donning patterned outfits? It’s all about finding the right pairing!
#2: Match the colour of your jewellery to the hardware of your bag
Picking your bag of the day based on your jewellery and vice versa is the way to go. If you’re wearing silver or white gold jewellery, match it with bags that have silver hardware. Likewise, yellow gold can be seamlessly matched with gold hardware.
Clutch bags with chain straps are ever-popular, and you can’t go wrong with a top-handle handbag either. These are usually roomy enough for essentials without being overly bulky, so they won’t weigh you down or get in the way as you’re out and about with your boo.
#3: Stack on the arm candy when wearing a plain outfit
There are no rules when it comes to fashion, so stack on the arm candy and let your hands do the talking! Be it rings or bracelets, don’t be afraid to make your hands a focal point by wearing multiple pieces at the same time, especially if you’ve just gotten a fresh manicure. This is a great way to jazz up a simple outfit too.
If you’re afraid of going overboard, opt for slimmer rings and bracelets that will complement each other instead of fighting for space and attention - just like these tasteful gem-set rings.
#4: Add a feminine touch to a suit jacket with floral jewellery
Structured outfits worn to the office can also work nicely for dates, and there’s no need to worry about them looking overly stiff as you can always accessorise to make them look softer.
Flowers can add a delicate touch to your outfit, so invest in some dainty floral jewellery - like this Seoul Style collection from Maxi-Cash, which includes a double-layered necklace, wraparound ring, and stud earrings with dangling chains.
We’ve paired these with muted blazers and white tops for a chic and feminine work-to-date ensemble.
#5: Say it with love using slogan necklaces
Celebrate precious moments with a slogan necklace, such as this gold abacus necklace from Citigems’ new Love Abacus collection. The heart motif and “love” wording will instantly amp up the romance factor of your outfit, making it suitable for special occasions like anniversaries.
While you’re at it, you might as well go all out with the matching ring and dangly stud earrings!
Another pick is this cute cursive “love” wording necklace in white gold, with a tiny dangling diamante charm that shimmers in the light as you move about.
#6: Use small coloured gem-set pieces for a subtle pop of colour
Less is more. Create a subtle pop of vibrancy and youthfulness in your look with fine jewellery set with coloured gems. These will create mini focal points in your getup and allow you to show off your personality.
We’re in love with these rings from Citigems that come with rubies, sapphires, diamonds, and pavé details. Because they’re slim and understated, they look elegant worn both together and on their own.
As you can see above, a small, coloured piece looks perfect next to a solitaire - the diamond helps bring out the richness of the ruby’s hue without any colour clash or overcrowding of fingers.
Now that you’re more well-versed in styling fine jewellery, it’s time to bling up your outfits and bring out your best - especially with Valentine’s Day around the corner.
Citigems’ brand new Love Abacus collection, which we’ve featured above, comes just in time for this occasion. These pieces are timeless and can be easily paired with different types of outfits. They’ll be a great galentines gift to a dear girlfriend and serve as a sentimental reminder of your friendship!
At the same time, Citigems’ jewellery is now going at up to 55% off at Maxi-Cash, so make sure you take this chance to cop your favourite pieces while prices are most wallet-friendly.
