Jewellery is sometimes the only thing enough to make your clothes appear different or new even when they aren’t so. Oversized jewellery comes in all shapes and colours – from cocktail neckpieces to party bracelets. Today, though, we are focused not on how they look but on how to wear them so that we do not look like a flashy fashion mishap without any defensible origin.
Choosing the appropriate neckline. This is a priority task before choosing an oversized piece for this area. The most appropriate in this case are V-necks, bandeau dresses, strapless and sleeveless tops. But huge neckpieces also look gorgeous on clothes which cover the shoulders and have a higher neckline.
The appropriate minimalism, which suits the exuberance of the piece. If, again, a neckpiece is in question, then you have to avoid combining it with clothes that have a lot of colour. The best solution is monochrome clothing without any prints especially in the area around your chest. Avoid any collars, scarves, brooches and adornments. When you decide to put on an exuberant neckpiece, earrings have to be simple or not be present at all. But in case you choose namely them as your big thing, you’d better forget about the necklace. It is acceptable to combine several pieces as long as they actually are one set and truly match the occasion or event. Grave jewellery is generally for grave formal occasions.
The huge ring and the huge bracelet are connected to huge responsibilities. This means that they are going to attract the attention to your hands and your manicure. If you want to wear a huge piece on your fingers and leave a good impression, then inevitably you have to take care of your nails and skin beforehand.
If you decide to combine oversized pieces with different shape and colour, you’d better not do it. A picture where Elizabeth Taylor has combined a green necklace with an orange bracelet is nowhere to be found. If the pieces on question are huge and impressive, it is even much less likely to leave a good impression.
