If you’re getting ready to celebrate New Year’s Eve, you’re probably deciding what outfit you’ll wear for that special night. The truth is that no matter what clothes you choose, the right jewelry can make or break your look. It’s just as important to select the right accessories as it is the right dress or suit. Whether you’re a man or a woman, start the New Year off right by looking your absolute best!
Choosing the right jewelry for New Year’s Eve is all about selecting pieces that will complement your outfit. If you’ll be wearing more formal attire, you might think that showy jewelry is the obvious choice and vice-versa – if the ensemble you plan to wear is more casual, you might be thinking that your jewelry should be as well. Actually, just the opposite is true.
If you’ve spent a small fortune on a special cocktail dress that you’ve had your eye on for months, choose jewelry that helps to enhance the look of the dress but not overshadow it. After all, you want people to notice your dress, right? So your jewelry should complement your outfit – not compete for attention. Stud earrings that are either diamond or cubic zirconia are a great choice for a formal party. If your neckline plunges just a bit, select a small pendant necklace that complements your earrings. A bracelet in a matching metal is also a nice addition. Whatever you choose, make your jewelry thin and relatively small, which are always more elegant choices for a formal outfit.
If you’ll be attending a less fancy get-together and planning to wear more casual clothes, you can dress up your outfit with larger jewelry that makes more of a bold statement. In this case, it’s okay if your jewelry outshines your clothes since you’ll be dressing more casually anyway. Don’t be afraid to wear large clip or dangling earrings. The same holds true for your necklace – boldly oversized pendants can really dress up an otherwise unspectacular blouse or sweater. When it comes to bracelets, choose one that’s large or combine several thin ones together on one wrist for a more dramatic look.
One of the hottest current trends in the fashion world is men’s jewelry. Guys of all ages are becoming more and more comfortable wearing fun accessories – from men’s earrings to a pendant necklace to a men’s bracelet. Whether or not you’re accustomed to wearing jewelry, New Year’s Eve is a great time to experiment with your look and see how you feel wearing different kinds of accessories.
Begin with a men’s bracelet. There is a variety of styles available in numerous types of metals. Two contemporary materials are especially popular: titanium and tungsten carbide. Fortunately, both are also very inexpensive, durable and easy to care for. If you like lighter weight pieces, try a titanium men’s bracelet. Once known as the “space age metal,” titanium is remarkably strong and surprisingly lightweight. If you want a little more substantial feel, try a tungsten carbide men’s bracelet, which is heavier than titanium but also very strong.
Another great jewelry choice for New Year’s is a men’s pendant necklace. Again, there is a wide variety to choose from. Some of the most popular choices are dog tag pendants. Many are made from contemporary materials like stainless steel and tungsten carbide. Your pendant necklace doesn’t necessarily have to match your bracelet so long as it complements your other jewelry and your outfit.
There’s no better way to start off the New Year than making sure you look your very best with jewelry that will add a certain polish to your holiday party attire. Whether it’s a men’s bracelet or the perfect pair of earrings for a woman, choosing the right jewelry for New Year’s Eve can make a world of difference in helping you to look your very best!
