Before we go any further - we know exactly why we want to wear statement jewellery - it's a great time saving device!!
A piece of jewellery, a dash of lippie and a splash of perfume - you will look as if you've taken hours to put your ensemble together rather than the fifteen minutes it will actually take you once you've read this article. And, as an added bonus you will look well groomed and in absolute alignment with your mood.
Tell me this, do you pick out your clothes when you wake up, and then accessorise them with your jewellery - or, like me, do you pick out your jewellery first and then find clothes that go with your choice of accessories??
Is it a Bird?, is it a Christmas Tree? - no, it's Indian Superbride!!!
At night one would use the same mantra, with the proviso that if the clothes are over embellished (coming from the Indian subcontinent, I know about over embellishment, honest) earrings or bracelets are the way to go.
Too much bling, all concentrated in one area - the Christmas tree look - is only permissible if you are attempting to be the Indian super bride on the left - any other occasion, and you will be sorely over dressed and definitely over embellished.
Statement jewellery allows your wardrobe to be simple - if your accessories are spectacular, a wardrobe with a few classic pieces will take you anywhere, looking your best and giving the impression that you have taken a great deal of trouble over your appearance.
Create a gap between two pieces of jewellery so that the eyes of the onlooker can get some rest - it makes for a better impact.
All you have to do is find a simple dress, and the cuff can be your statement for the day - what do you think it would say about you??
Less is More
Overdoing the number of statement pieces, or forgetting the look you were originally trying to achieve will cause a jangling of nerves in the poor folks who have to look at you.
If their eyes are constantly moving from your face to your chandelier earrings, and your necklace to your arms as you move them around in gay abandon, all jangling bracelets and big smile - the poor saps are going to be dizzy with all that eye movement, and it is highly unlikely that you will make a good impression.
Add Just the one Crazy Touch - for Badness
Dress to take on the world, not just to get by - look like you've tried -people do notice - and you will feel, and look fabulous for the tiniest bit of effort.
Tip for the Day
Have a nice day - it is lovely and sunny outside, I hope the sun is shining on all of you too
