We’ve all been there; you’ve chosen the perfect outfit for dinner or that important conference, but you just can’t quite figure out which pair of earrings matches best with your clothing. Don’t worry, we’re here to help with some helpful tips for matching earrings with clothes that you can use for any occasion. Keep reading to learn more!
What’s the Occasion?
The event you’re dressing for is the ultimate decision-making factor in which earrings (and outfit) to wear. If you’re attending a casual dinner with friends or family, you probably won’t need to wear your best clothes and most expensive diamond earrings. However, a dinner meeting with board members or a new client may warrant a different look altogether.
Wherever you’re going, be sure that what you’re wearing matches the occasion. If you like bracelets, you might want to avoid them if you’re just going to work (and you type a lot), as they can get in the way. Expensive diamond earrings may not be a good option for the club or bar scene, as they can end up lost or worse, stolen.
Highlight Your Skin Tone
For maximum synchronicity in your outfit, you’ll want to not only accent your clothing with your jewelry, but also your skin tone. Skin tone can play a major role in how an outfit and its accessories fit your particular style, so it’s something you won’t want to overlook when picking out the perfect pair of earrings to go with your dress or blouse.
Silver is a great option for most skin tones since it will shine against both light and dark tones. Warm skin tones will warrant a little more color, such as orange, yellow, and red tones, whereas a cooler skin tone will accent blues, reds, and purples. Keep this in mind if you’re choosing earrings with precious gems. This also applies to your clothing; if you’re wearing cooler colors, the same rules will be relevant.
Diamonds Match Just About Everything
There’s a reason that diamonds are considered to be “a girl’s best friend”. Diamonds highlight just about any color, and can bring out the beauty of pretty much any outfit. Diamonds are shiny, bold, and incredibly beautiful when paired with precious metals or gemstones in a tasteful way.
If you’re in doubt on what earrings to wear and don’t feel like any of them match your outfit, a pair of diamond earrings can be a perfect choice. You’ll still be highlighting your skin tone and your outfit while accessorizing with a stunning addition to the overall look.
If you find your collection is lacking in diversity, an earring subscription box can be just what you need to diversify your roster so you’ll have a look for every occasion. These affordable boxes will deliver earrings to your door, along with other goodies, for a reasonable price either monthly or on a quarterly basis.
Black, White and Gold Will Always Be in Style
Sometimes, the best way to make your outfit stand out is by keeping it simple. A black dress with gold earrings can be a simple yet stunning look that can really bring out your skin tone and eyes. A white dress with gold or silver earrings can have the same effect.
Don’t mistake complexity for fashion sense. Overly complex outfits can often be distracting or fail to serve their intended purpose. Often the best thing to do is keep your outfit and accessories simple. There is beauty in simplicity, make no mistake. That little black dress and diamond earring combination may just be your best look!
Statement Earrings With Simple Outfits
Statement earrings can make your outfit (and your face) stand out even more, with flashy and eye-catching designs that will warrant a second look. Keeping your outfit simple will help keep the focus on your statement earrings, with the outfit itself serving as more of an accent to the jewelry and your face.
For example, a simple white dress can serve to accent blue and silver statement earrings, with a simple look that leaves the focus on your accessories rather than the full outfit. Your smile and silver/blue earrings will be accented by the neutral white of the dress, making for a bold and beautiful simplistic look that you can choose for several different occasions.
Don’t Forget Your Own Flavor
All the fashion advice in the world can’t replace the beauty of your own unique flavor. Every outfit is unique to you when you put it on, and adding your own flair can make a simple outfit really stand out. Don’t be afraid to take a chance and experiment with a look that’s more “you” than a simple black dress.
You can accessorize with earrings and other jewelry, or try different color combinations for a unique look. Mixing warm and cool colors can be difficult, but it’s not impossible! In fact, certain color contrasts can be absolutely stunning; and when paired with the perfect set of earrings, can be a one-of-a-kind look for you.
Matching earrings with your outfit isn’t difficult if you know the event you’re attending and the look you’re going for. A casual look will warrant a different outfit and accessories than a formal one. Don’t forget that your own flavor can help make your outfit pop, and adds that special flair that only you can bring to the look. Fashion is all about expressing yourself, so don’t be afraid to try new things!
