Do you love parties, but you’re not really sure how to dress up for one? What if you are shy and just want to make a good first impression? Not to worry –we are here to your rescue!
Buying and owning jewelry is one of the best perks of being a girl, so it’s our accessory-loving duty to tell you what sparkly essentials you need in your jewelry box. And while we encourage you to indulge in any jewel trend of the moment, we’ve made a list of the top 10 pieces of jewelry every woman should own to stun at a party:
Mostly reserved for evenings or events, these will again make a statement and finish your look, and make your face pop.
- MUST HAVE #2 –A Menswear-Inspired Watch
Besides keeping you punctual, a great menswear-inspired watch is the perfect way to ground your girly jewelry.Invest in one that looks like it could be shared with either your boyfriend or even your grandpa, with a slightly bigger face and either a metallic or leather strap.
- MUST HAVE #3 – A Strand Of Pearls
We love how this never-out-of-style piece can top off a ladylike look and make it feel exquisitely sophisticated and classic. Worn with a simple black dress, a strand of pearls is always a sweet choice. It should work on its own and be neither too short nor too long. Think: Breakfast at Tiffany’s!
- MUST HAVE #4 – Large Metallic Hoops
Sometimes, a simple hoop can add just the right amount of interest to your look, particularly when your hair is pulled off your face. A thinner hoop that is larger than a silver dollar manages to feel both festive and feminine.
- MUST HAVE #5 – Diamond studs
Marilyn Monroe declared with a lot of conviction “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend”. We couldn’t agree more. Diamond studs are expensive but they are totally worth the investment you are making. On days when you aren’t really sure what to wear, you’ll find diamond earrings are almost always appropriate.
- MUST HAVE #6 – The Cuff Bracelet
Add sizzle to your wrist year-round with a sleek cuff bracelet. Wear a cuff (or two) to feel like the superhero you are. We especially love them paired with something sleek—like a longer sheath dress or even a pencil skirt and corset look.
- MUST HAVE #7 – A Right-Hand Ring
Since your left hand is reserved for more serious jewelry (like wedding bands or grandma’s old ruby ring), think of your right hand as a place to play. Go for something that is stackable,colorful, or oversized, and that can ideally be worn on your pointer or middle finger for impact.
- MUST HAVE #8 – Something Rock ‘n’ Roll
Rock ‘n’ rollers have long since defined our love of studs,chains, spikes, and tough symbols. Use a piece you love, like pyramid stud earrings or a leather cuff, to offset the sweetness of a feminine floral dress or add an unexpected touch to a more conservative suit.
- MUST HAVE #9 – Gold and Silver Studs
While you wont be making any huge fashion statements with a simple stud, they are essential to finish a look. We love a domed ball for versatility but like a pyramid stud, bar, or shape, like a heart or star, too. These little metallic must-haves are best worn when either your necklace or bracelets are making the statement.
- MUST HAVE #10 – A Locket
A vintage-inspired locket can provide character and interest to almost any outfit. We love it thrown on with a casual tee and jeans, but this old-fashioned treasure will also make a modern dress look even cooler.
While a jewelry box brimming with beautiful baubles is nice, chances are you won’t even wear most of the pieces in there —if you can even remember that you have them.So now ladies, you have your very own personalised list of must-haves to get that party started!Go on and shine like a star!
