Whether you're going to a prom or a night out with friends, choosing the best jewelry for your outfit can be tricky. Believe it or not, jewelry is a double-edged sword: if you wear the right one you'll achieve a spectacular look, but if you choose the wrong shape, you'll ruin your whole style.

There's no doubt that shopping for jewelry can be stressful, especially if you're not used to wearing it every day. To make your choice easier, here is a special guide, even if you are a beginner in the subject, to look fabulous. Take note!

Types of jewelry to choose from

To know how to choose the best jewelry, you need to know what kind of jewelry you find popularly in stores. That way, you can create your own collection and know your favorite preferences when buying them. These are the most sought-after accessories for women:



Bracelets are a piece of jewelry totally designed to highlight the area of your hands. They are eye-catching because of their circular and simple shape, which, nowadays, you can find with different decorative elements to embellish or highlight a manicure trend.


According to history, necklaces have their origins in Egypt, where the pharaohs decorated their necks with these pieces. Nowadays, there is a diversity of styles and designs that adapt to the occasion and personal preference.


Anklets are sexy, attractive and flirty jewelry styles. They are usually more popular to wear in summer, as the weather merits exposing the best features of our body, especially the legs. If you want to choose a jewelry that gives importance to the lower part, this is a good alternative.


Earrings can be considered as facial jewelry, as their purpose is to highlight part of the face with gemstones or pendants that contribute to the look you need to achieve. Unlike the other jewelry, these contain a more minimalist but appealing style.



Rings are popular for being given as a token of love, commitment or loyalty. In ancient times, it was known to be the symbol of eternity and to give it was to form a pact with the other person. Today, they are fashion jewelry, special to highlight the delicacy of your fingers.

Tips on how to choose the ideal jewelry

Because of the fact that there is a diversity of types of jewelry, it also means finding an immense amount of jewelry styles in one store. However, there are small details such as skin tone, occasion, personal style, among others, that you need to pay full attention to. Check out our tips:

Choose the jewel according to your skin tone

To choose the best jewelry, paying attention to your skin tone is important, as it is also part of your outfit. If you want to wear beautiful jewelry, then choose jewelry that highlights your skin.  

For example, gold, silver and white tones complement cool skin. On the other hand, people with warm skin look best with pastels, orange, pink or red. However, if you have neutral skin, gold and silver are ideal.

Don't know what skin tone you have? A simple way to find out is to look at the color of your veins. People with a purple or blue color have cool skin; those with green veins have a warm tone; and, finally, veins that are skin-colored or not very persuasive have a neutral tone.

Maintain a balance with your outfit

There are two details that cannot go unnoticed to maintain harmony between the jewelry and the outfit: the color and style of the outfit. A combination of warm and cool colors is always best, but if you are not sure, you can use the color wheel as a guide.

Also, if you wear a style of clothing with very bold prints, then buying discreet jewelry is a good option to maintain visual balance. If your outfit style is simple, just choose a jewelry focused on one part of the body, i.e. a necklace or a bracelet.  

Choose the best jewelry for the occasion

While wearing jewelry is a fun way to show your personality, it is also important to consider the occasion. For example, if you are going to a formal event such as a wedding, graduation or work, it is ideal to choose jewelry with precious stones, to add a luxurious and very elegant touch. 

On the other hand, if it is a social or casual event, it is better to opt for more basic jewelry such as a pair of simple earrings or a chic pendant. Also, in these casual encounters, it is fine to experiment with costume jewelry.   

Choose the best jewelry for a focal point

Earlier we mentioned the most popular types of jewelry, with so much variety it is normal to be tempted to experiment with all of them. However, it is not highly recommended that you wear jewelry for every part of your body, as it can overwhelm your look. 

One tip is to choose two categories, i.e. a pair of earrings with a necklace; or a bracelet combined with earrings. Also, it is important that the jewelry keeps its balance (one piece should be more focal than the other).

Neckline matters too

When choosing the best jewelry for your outfit, you should also consider the neckline of the outfit you are wearing. For example, a turtleneck blouse may require a bold necklace, while a scoop neck shirt will look best with delicate necklaces and earrings
