Women over 40 – it take maturity and confidence to define your style
Many people underestimate the importance of jewellery as an accessory.
It should complement your outfit and suit the occasion you are attending; whether a professional engagement, a cocktail party or dinner. Too much jewelry can be too flashy or even ostentatious. Too little and you will have missed the opportunity to show your personality and style! The following guidelines will help you to get it right, whatever the occasion:
If you are intending to wear your jewelry to work you must first check the rules regarding this!
They may tolerate any jewelry, no jewelry, or anything in between! If your workplace does not have any official guidelines take a look at what everyone else is wearing and adopt a similar approach.
Over the top
It can be easy and tempting to wear your matching set of earrings; necklace and bracelet to work, but this will probably be too much and may not be practical in your workplace. It is better to choose one statement piece and wear just that. This expresses your personality without being too much for your colleagues.
By the time you reach forty you may well have a good sized collection of jewellery. To create a good look, wear a balance of new and old pieces and split your pieces between expensive and cheaper and mix them when you wear them.
It is important to accept that you are over forty, the jewelry look that works for a twenty year old will probably not look right on you. Instead, go with your own style; it will appear natural and you will be comfortable and confident.
An unfortunate side effect of aging is that your earlobes will start to droop. Do not make these look worse by hanging large earrings from them! Equally, your earring size and style should go with your hair style and the shape of your face.
Today’s adult woman is extremely realistic. She loves bulky, elegant jewelry that brings out her personal sense of style. When it comes to rings, the coolest trend is the signet ring. The latest models are particularly stylish and innovative. They feature well-crafted crests and engravings, and they even feature precious stones and diamonds.
A good choice of color for your earrings is the same color as your eyes. This will draw attention to your eyes and ears at the same time, the sparkle of the stones will enhance the color and sparkle of your eyes! Another good choice of color is using your birthstone, particularly in a necklace. This is often a conversation starter. Alternatively you can find many examples of raised birthstone earrings which look absolutely stunning.
This is an often overlooked piece of jewelry but it is an important piece! The right watch can add a timeless elegance to any outfit. The watch does not need to be covered in jewels, a simple piece can emphasize a professional outlook, while a few jewels, or semi-precious stones can catch people’s eyes and accentuate your clothing. A watch is also a good way of showing that you are punctual and recognize the importance of time.
Jewelry often works best when it is a subtle addition to your dress. There is a time and a place to wear your biggest, brightest stones but many occasions are better suited to just one or two subtle pieces which will be noticed throughout an evening and leave the right impression with your companions. It is important to remember that an item of jewelry is an accessory to your outfit and should complement and accentuate it, not detract from it.
Many items of jewelry can make an annoying clinking noise whilst you walk around the room; this can be particularly annoying to others in a work environment; they will have to listen to your noise all day! Make sure that your jewelry either does not clink or makes a very subtle, soft sound that will not be a distraction to others.
