Elegant Jewelry and Fashion Acessories

A woman can look elegant by learning how to accessorize in a certain way. She also can increase her elegance by knowing how to use select pieces.

Elegant jewelry and fashion acessories are punctuation marks in your style, an accent in your fashion.

While good quality clothes are a must, you'll have elegant style by just accessorizing. And it doesn't have to be expensive. You are able to achieve an expensive look by knowing how to buy the right elegant costume jewelry.

What is the difference between jewelry and fashion accessories?

Elegant jewelry refers to the precious stones and metals, such as gold, diamonds, rubies etc and fashion accessories are really costume jewelry.

Of course, there is a big difference in price! Your first piece of elegant jewelry might be your engagement ring, however if you know how to choose well, you might never need to spend extra dollars on fine elegant jewelry!

The 'Powers' of Elegant Jewelry and Fashion Accessories

Elegant jewelry and fashion accesssories have astounding abilities to create different looks with your existing wardrobe.

You'll find that you can wear that same little black dress in twenty different ways because of accessories.

The ability to transform an outfit makes your clothes work harder for you. You now have more combinations (of shoes, bags, accessories) to work with.

With a few cleverly placed accessories, you can 'dress your outfit up or down', making it go from 'day time to an elegant evening.'

Choosing Your Elegant Jewelry and Fashion Accessories

Say you're saving some money for a holiday and you've got a fabulous party to go to. Or maybe you simply don't have time to shop. Having the right jewelry wardrobe can create the impression that you have more outfits than you really do.

Either get creative with your existing accessories and 'play around' a little, mixing and matching, or get a statement piece of jewelry costing less than twenty dollars.

Statement Jewelry and Accessories

After you have established your Classic Jewelry wardrobe, you might consider adding a few statement pieces.

Statement pieces are for, well, making a statement. They are accents in your clothes and serve as a 'focus' to your outfit.

They are a great way to communicate your personal style. It's bold, it's confident, it's fun.

Statement Jewelry draws attention (just make sure it's appropriate to occasion) and is a great conversation starter.

A statement piece is perfect and an affordable way to achieve a 'fresh new look', without buying a whole new wardrobe.

Because of the attention-grabbing nature of statement jewelry, you are advised to wear only one at a time or mix them up carefully with classic, more subtle pieces.

Take your time to collect these accent pieces, certainly one at a time! Find them on your travels, little trips off the beaten shopping paths and you can tell that story everytime.

Every girl should own at least one or two pieces. If you've got a big one, go for it! It could be just your signature style.

Statement Jewelry Wardrobe

Here is a list of accent pieces
  1. Big rings worn on your second finger (wear one only each time)
  2. A couple of dangling earrings which should at least consist of colours black, gold or silver
  3. Assorted long chains that ends around your navel
  4. Bangles of good quality made in wood, silver, bronze and never plastic
  5. Long strand of pearl necklace
  6. An elegant gold thin wrist cuff
  7. Pins or clips with ribbons, silver ornaments etc
