As a manner of expressing your personality and yourself, jewellery can be used as a tool to portray different moods, feelings, or even professions. With solid Opal jewellery, there are many ways to use it to reflect who you are on the inside.
However, there are also some basic guidelines for matching your precious Opal jewellery with outfits as your style quotient. On this blog, we’re sharing eight fashion tips on how to match your solid Opal jewellery with your outfit!
Style Quotient and Your Solid Opal Jewellery
Have you ever cooked pasta without adding salt, pepper, and herbs to the mixture? Silly question, right?! But what if you did? Will it satisfy your taste buds? Absolutely not! This is precisely what happens when you fail to accessorise your outfit.
You wear the dress, but it does nothing to enhance your beauty. Accessorises are like spices in your pasta. They highlight the entire look and add a dash of sophistication, and class.
Therefore, it is possible to dress up as well as dress down an outfit with an appropriate accessory selection. Shoes, belts, sunglasses, scarves, handbags, and purses are some must-have accessories for women.
Only expensive designer garments, paired with top-class accessories will not make you look like a million bucks. You can shell out millions and purchase the trendiest fashion, but not style. This is what international stylists regard as the ‘style quotient’.
With the right choice of accessories just like solid opal jewellery, style should be innate. For most men and women of all sizes, colours, ages, and professions, you either have it, or you don’t.
But remember, self-confidence and the right attitude will ensure that all eyes are fixed on you. Even if you have the right style sense, even thrift store clothes will make you look like a style goddess.
Wearing the same clothes can become annoying if you don’t know how to create a different look with them each time. The right accessories will assist in breaking the chains of the sartorial rut.
So, no need to spend money on glorified fashion consultants. They work best for celebs only. Check out Opals Down Under’s jewellery blogs, news, and the latest arrivals in the market to redefine your fashion statement.
1. Your Everyday Outfits
If you’re wearing casual clothing like jeans and t-shirts, don’t worry about what kind of earrings or necklace you want to wear. Choose something simple, like dangly earrings or a simple necklace. This will go well with your casual dress too, and it’s not too much to complicate the outfit.
Or, if you’re wearing eyeliner, lipstick, or other coloured makeup, you should avoid adding different colours that could compete with the tones of your face. So, try to choose a minimal size of jewellery as much as possible.
Remember that not all earrings are created equal! For example, studs don’t draw as much attention as hoops or chandelier earrings. If you want to wear hoop earrings every day but only have one pair, switch them out for different outfits so they’ll last longer–but make sure they match whatever clothing you’re wearing!
Our Solid Crystal Opal Earrings could be your next bet to match your everyday outfit. They’re simple and elegant with gorgeous multi-colour Crystal Opals in yellow gold stud earrings.
Another thing you could be thinking about here is some custom accessories. Some custom-designed jewellery from Opals Down Under can be made to match almost any outfit you have in mind. You can be sure that unique custom designs will always complement your clothes.
2. Formal Outfits
You’re probably well aware that when you wear formal dresses, wedding dresses, or even special occasion party outfits, the rules are much stricter for accessories. This is especially true for necklaces.
When wearing these outfits, simple pendants are usually the best option. You don’t want to overpower the dress with your necklace, so make sure you pick something small and understated.
Or, if you’re going for a bolder statement necklace, choose clothing that will balance it out. For example, if you have an outfit with lots of busy patterns, keep your jewellery plain to avoid competition between accessories.
If you find yourself choosing jewellery that’s too big or flashy for formal outfits because it’s what YOU like, then try experimenting with different kinds of costume pieces instead! These aren’t typically made from precious stones or metals.
Try to buy authentic precious gemstones but without any high price tag. Our Solid White Opal pendant is a great choice for your neckline when you wear a professional outfit. Moreover, it is a classic and elegant but simple setting with a cute & bright White Opal.
We suggest visiting Opals Down Under and checking our latest arrivals and affordable selections. From there, you can wear things you love without the worry of them diminishing your outfit.
3. Choose Solid Opal Jewellery to Glisten Your Career/Profession
If you’re planning on wearing something that goes with your profession, then there are lots of factors to take into consideration when finding matching accessories. For example, if you’re an artist or work in a creative field, then Yellow or White Gold statement necklaces and colourful earrings might look nice with your outfits.
But these gold and colourful pieces of jewellery aren’t good options for more conservative professions like accountants or lawyers! For these professions, it’s best to go with simple, understated styles.
Yellow or White Gold stud earrings, and small necklaces without too many flashy gems are safe choices. If you’re a teacher or a professor, you might want to wear a silver locket necklace instead of something gold-coloured.
Try this Solid Crystal Opal necklace and be amazed by its simple and humbling beauty. Despite its unflashy nature, it’s still an elegant and classy white gold pendant that is complemented by its bright green/blue crystal opal.
The great thing about matching jewellery is that there are so many options available! There’s a lot of room for personal preference with Opals Down Under, which can make things more fun and stylish as well. As long as whatever accessories you choose to complement the outfit you’re wearing, then anything goes.
4. Party Outfits
When you’re prepping for a particular party, you might be wondering if there are any specific rules about jewellery. There isn’t an ideal type of outfit to wear to parties – it’s just as much about your makeup and hair as what you’re wearing on the outside! However, one thing that can help is making sure that your statement accessories match the rest of your outfit.
If you have lots of bright colours in your dress or top, then opt for simple earrings and a thin necklace. This way, the only thing people see is the colour of the jewellery instead of it competing with another accessory like crazy printed pants or shiny shoes.
On the other hand, if you happen to have an all-black ensemble ready to go for the party, you could choose a bolder statement necklace with gold or colourful gems. You could even get away with wearing more than one statement accessory at once if they look good together!
Look your best with this Solid Fiery Boulder Opal pendant that best suits your party look. Its striking colour play has a playful yet fine pattern, showing off plenty of green/blue and hints of yellow.
One can wear accessories like necklaces and earrings just about anywhere and anytime, so it’s great to have several pairs of different styles ready. That way, when there’s a special occasion coming up, you’ll know exactly which pieces will look best with your outfit!
5. Skin Tone and Your Solid Opal Jewellery
Skin tone is another factor to consider when you’re picking accessories that look nice with your outfits. For example, if your skin tone is on the paler side of the spectrum, then light colours like gold and Boulder or Black Opal (instead of White Opal) will look best.
On the other hand, if you have darker skin tones, then White Opal and Crystal Opal in White Gold look gorgeous. If statement necklaces aren’t your thing, but you love to wear precious gemstones on your ears or around your wrist from Opals Down Under, then that’s fine too.
You can still take advantage of the colour spectrum when it comes to matching accessories with outfits. Just think about what colour looks the best on you! Also, you can even get away with wearing more than one statement accessory in this case.
Some people choose to wear several different ones at once such as earrings AND a necklace AND bracelets or rings. It all depends on your personal preference and what looks best!
6. Purses and Handbags
Carrying a small bag or a handbag is a mark of sophistication. You never know when you will need to touch up your make-up. Gone are the days when people used these bags to carry their necessary stuff. Bags have now become fashion statements.
Princess Diana always carried her trusty matching purses. Handbags, totes, slings, clutches and cross-body bags are some ideal items in your bag collection. Keeping one black, brown, nude-coloured and red handbag handy at all times. These complement most dresses.
If you are more of a casual dresser, then make sure you have a cross body and slings in bright colours at all times. These not only look trendy but also highlight your fun side.
Adding some colour with a bright red clutch will breathe some life into your look. A cream-coloured medium tote bag is a must for your French Riviera ensemble.
7. Watches for An Elegant Touch
Classic and smartwatches have been in fashion for a long time. Leather and metal band watches are also available in the market. Wearing a sleek watch can add sophistication to your attire. All you need is a trendy and sporty watch to complete your jeans-T-shirt look.
A formal black dial watch will complement your power suit and command attention in the boardroom. It is possible to dress up your LBD with nothing but a statement jewelled watch. You can get a good watch from an outlet or an online store.
You may not expect high discounts from high-end watch brands but with the right store, you’ll get the best deals now! If you desire to get the same look but at a low cost, opt for replicas of these luxury watches.
This Doublet Opal Face Watch is your next great purchase! Also known as the ‘Alexander Dauvin Opal Face Watch’, this Rose Gold plated ladies’ watch has a 28mm face, and mesh band. Plus, it has a two-year manufacturer’s warranty and is up to 3m water-resistant.
8. Shoes and Heels
Last but not the least; an accessory list will not be complete without the mention of your footwear. These not only save your feet from dirt but also tie the entire look together.
Both shoes and heels offer an elevation and good posture, and if in a great dilemma, you can create a perfect look by matching your purse with your shoes. It does not matter if your dress has a combination of too many hues.
Over the years, shoe trends have also changed. Designers are experimenting with new materials, colours, designs and heel heights. No matter what your preference is, you will find your perfect fit.
Classic pumps with high heels, casual kitten heels, courtroom heels, flat sandals, platforms, sneakers, tie up gladiator shoes, and front open footwear are some in the market. Having these in your shoe collection will make sure you are well-dressed for every occasion.
Wearing the wrong shoes can ruin the whole look. Know which shoe is suitable for which event. You don’t want to roam around the office in brightly coloured flip-flops.
When dressing up for a formal meeting or gala night, opt for classic black or nude high heel pumps. For a lazy afternoon session with your girlfriends, reach for comfortable ballerinas or platform heels.
