Jewellery can truly make any outfit look great. Ramp up the effect that jewellery has on your style by colour coordinating your jewellery to your wardrobe. Colour matching jewellery can dress up a dull outfit or dress down a more formal look.
Putting together an outfit, remember that colour is one of the most important aspects of your entire wardrobe. Poor choice of colour can draw attention to flaws, whereas a good coordination of your jewellery and wardrobe can help you look sensational. While studying jewellery colour coordination, also consider the colour, scale and style of the pieces. Compare the look of the entire outfit to the occasion in your mind since jewellery is vital is setting the tone of your look.
Once you’ve established the correct tone and scale of your pieces, you can establish the colour palette of your look.
Get the formula right by determining the main colour of your outfit. Start with a colour of your outfit or gemstone then look across from the colour wheel to see the ideal colour tone that you should wear to contrast the colour. For example, if you are wearing a yellow blouse with slate grey pants, yellow will be the main colour of your outfit. Then, looking at a colour wheel, find the complimentary colours of your main colour for your jewellery colour. Make a big fashion statement by choosing primary and secondary colours that are opposite of each other on the wheel. Use the colours across the colour wheel (purple in our example) for a bold and adventurous look. Take care with the shades of each colour when using this tip as some shades pair well and others don’t seem to look as good together. Avoid partnering red with green, though, unless it’s the holiday season.
Complete your look with a bold, striking and attention-stealing piece of statement jewellery. Don’t be shy to experiment- while jewellery can make or break your look, jewellery colour matching doesn’t have to be too serious. The best matches come when you go for something that is innovative or creative.
Experiment to find which colours work best for you, but take care to not use more than three colours in your whole ensemble. Fashion is about colour and how you use it in your clothes and jewellery. Mastering the colour wheel with your wardrobe, will instantly improve your personal fashion style.
