Jewelry is fun to play with, it adds sparkle and color to an otherwise tired outfit. But sometimes it can be difficult to tell what to wear. A statement necklace that goes perfectly with one dress will look gaudy paired with another. Or a ring that everyone wore last summer is now sitting at the bottom of your jewelry box, never to be worn again. The pieces listed here are ones that every woman should own, and they never go out of style. These classics go with almost every outfit, and they’re simple enough that you may even forget you’re wearing them.
- Stud Earrings
Delicate, subtle, and simple enough that you’ll want to leave them in all the time, stud earrings have the ability to pull together any outfit. They not only make your outfit feel put-together, they’ll also complete your makeup look by framing your face. Wear them with any outfit, every day. They complement everything.
- Pendant Necklace
A light, short pendant with a simple charm never goes out of style. Feather-light and perfect for layering with other necklaces, it can be worn every day, creating a signature look. It can be worn to complete a flirty dress for a date, or with jeans and a t-shirt on a weekend. Either way, it will quickly become one of the essential pieces in your jewelry box.
- Cocktail Ring
While this piece can’t be worn every day, it’s a fun way to spice up an outfit. Pick something that isn’t too over the top, so it won’t seem gaudy, and sticking to simple color schemes of gold, rose gold and silver allows the ring to complement more outfits. It’s also a great way to draw attention to a fabulous manicure.
An elegant timepiece can double as a bracelet and a way to ensure you’re always on time. Not only will it make your outfit more sophisticated, it can be worn with almost anything. A streamlined, metallic watch will look elegant and modern while a watch with a leather band will look vintage and classic.
Pearls come in many colors and varieties, and can be worn in any type of jewelry. A classic strand or double strand of white pearls never goes out of style, but can be updated by using a pearl pendant, ring, or bracelet instead. In any form, pearls make an outfit look sophisticated.
