How to wear Jewelry at a Cocktail Party or Dinner Party

Depending on the occasion, the accessories you wear with your outfit will vary. When attending a cocktail party or dinner party, the ladies often choose an evening dress that can vary in style depending on how formal the party is. We have gathered some useful tips on how to best use jewelry to look great on your next gathering.

Which necklace to wear with your neckline

The rule of thumb when it comes to necklaces is that the length of it should be either shorter or longer than your neckline. You don’t want it to end at the same place as the neckline of your dress, blouse or shirt. This is mostly because of how irritating it can be having to pull your necklace out of your clothing all the time, since it will likely fall into your top or dress when you move around.

Wear long necklaces with high-necked tops and dresses

A long dangling necklace can be a pretty statement piece that adds excitement to any party outfit. It tends to look best with necklines that are high, such as boat cut, or crew cut. It’s the perfect way to add an extra touch to an outfit with modest colors and no patterns. A pair of matching gemstone stud earrings, and rings if you like, will complete the look in a nice way.

Formal events call for glamorous but sophisticated jewelry

For black-tie events you will probably wear an evening gown or nice dress. This is a great time to use delicate and glamorous jewelry that add luxury to your look. For example, a pair of gemstone drop earrings matched with a bold cocktail ring, necklace or bracelet, will look wonderful on you, especially with your hair pulled back or in an updo. The drop earrings will compliment your jaw and length of your neck, making you look even more elegant. Go for expensive-looking pieces, like earrings and necklaces with lab-grown diamond, emerald, sapphire or ruby stones.

Dress to impress with fashion jewelry

On parties and gatherings where the key is “dress to impress” it’s fun to take the chance and use your favorite fashion jewelry. Go bold with big statement pieces that match your outfit and add glamour. One or two pieces could be enough if you’re wearing eye-catching jewelry. Otherwise, feel free to accessorize in your own way. The goal is to both feel and look amazing, and what better way is there to achieve that than by wearing your favorite, shiny jewelry?

Accessorize more on casual nights

If you’re dressing up for a more casual occasion, like a night out on a cocktail bar that won’t make you flat broke, you can pick bold jewelry to stand out. A big statement necklace or several pieces is a must to get that party feeling going. Colorful gemstones will catch people’s eyes and you can have fun matching the colors with your outfit – or add completely new color to an otherwise black and white outfit. The bigger the piece, the more attention it will draw. Don’t be afraid to wear chunky and sparkling pieces of jewelry on these nights.
