Mistakes To Avoid When Wearing Antique Jewellery

We all love the look and feel of fine antique jewellery, with fashion accessories of style and character that really do complement your look, yet choosing the right pieces can be a challenge. While some women are super-confident when choosing accessories, others are unsure, and here are a few common mistakes women make when selecting antique jewellery to complement their outfit.

Overdoing your accessories – It can be difficult knowing where to draw the line when accessorising, and if you like to wear earrings, make sure that they are suitable for the occasion. Many women prefer the minimalist look, with perhaps a necklace and a couple of rings, and if you are unsure, send a selfie to a good friend and ask for her honest opinion.

Mixing metals – White gold does look great with diamonds, and with rings and bracelets, one must be careful not to wear yellow gold with platinum, which doesn’t really work. If you are looking to add a particular piece from Sydney’s finest antique jewellery collection, search online for an established antique dealer, one that focuses on antique and vintage jewellery, and you can browse their catalogue in the comfort of your own home.

Wearing jewellery that does not match your outfit – It might be the wrong colour or style that somehow just doesn’t blend with what you are wearing, especially when combining antique pieces with contemporary wear. Attending a formal event demands a balance and too many accessories can certainly detract from the look you are trying to create.

Wearing a necklace that is too short or long – That antique pendant necklace might be too long for the gown you’ve chosen, or if it’s a little short, the pendant will not look in proportion with your gown.

Choosing the wrong metal for your skin tone – Generally speaking, light coloured metals such as platinum, silver and white gold are suitable for people with cool skin tones, while yellow and rose gold blend well with warmer skin tones. When you are getting ready to go out, try jewellery items to see which contrast well with your skin tone, and if unsure, ask a good friend for her honest opinion.

Wearing dirty jewellery – Any jewellery item can become dirty, and on close inspection, it might be evident, so always clean jewellery prior to wearing it. You can use a soft toothbrush and warm water with a little mild detergent, and with gentle brushing, you can clean the delicate items, then dry with a soft, dry cloth.

If you would like to see a collection of beautiful jewellery, you can view the stunning pieces from the comfort of your own living room. All you have to do is search online for a respected jeweller or even an antiques dealer, which would have one-of-a-kind pieces. Antique dealers are usually part of a nationwide network, so if you’re looking for something specific, there would be a good chance that the dealer can source what you are looking for.

Winter Fashion Essentials Every Woman Should Have

Categories: Fashion, , Leave a comment

As seasons change, so do clothing requirements. Obviously, you can’t be strutting in your favourite summer tie-dyed slip dress in the snow, unless you want to catch a cold or worse than that. It would also be uncomfortable to be all wrapped up in warm winter jackets and scarves when the sun is hottest in summer. A wardrobe change therefore is absolutely sensible.

To upgrade your current wardrobe, here are 3 clothing must-haves that you should invest in for the upcoming winter season:

1. Jackets and Coats

With the weather becoming unpredictable and sometimes even going to surprising extreme temperature drops, hoarding on different types of cover-ups to keep you warm is the best way to prepare for the cold season’s challenges, fashion-wise. Because even though you’re going to be wrapped up in layers, let’s be honest, we still want to look chic. The only way to achieve this is to find pieces that serve both purpose and style.

A long coat is a good choice to keep you warm while also making a bold fashion statement. Indeed, what you wear on top of all your other outfits will matter most at wintertime. Hence, why not make the most of it with an interesting long coat? If you’re wearing a neutral-coloured outfit or an all-black ensemble, which is a very common colour choice during winter, try to liven it up with a bright-coloured long coat. If you’re looking at elegant blue prom dress with sleeves, you will still have to choose a long coat to complement your choice so that even when the night gets cold, you can still enjoy the party and look fashionable.

If you want a more sophisticated appeal, wear a blazer. Blazers have a corporate appeal, making the wearer look smart and classy. You can opt to wear these on top of your usual work clothes, particularly the sleeveless dresses.

Of course, a winter wardrobe will never be complete if you don’t get yourself a leather jacket. This piece of outerwear provides an instant upgrade to whatever it is you are wearing. If you’re not into long coats, you can opt for a trusty leather jacket over your prom dress and voila, you’ve just added oomph to your outfit.

Make sure to have at least one puffer jacket for when the temperature is way below zero degrees and you’ve got to protect yourself from getting hypothermia. A swanky puffer jacket will look great with sweaters and boots too.

2. Turtlenecks and Sweaters

A warm top is a necessity for winter, even when you have prepared to layer your outfits with coats or jackets. If you don’t own one yet, get yourself a snug turtleneck top (or several) since this can be a go-to clothing piece for winter. These tops go with everything, from working as an undershirt for sleeveless dresses to being paired with good jeans.

Sweaters are also winter must-haves, with cashmeres being highly recommended. These are simple warmers that can be worn with all types of bottoms – jeans, trousers, leather pants, and even skirts.  You can also wear this with a collared shirt to add more warmth to your outfit while still looking chic.

3. Jeans

With multiple layers on, skinny jeans are go-to pants for winter. Not only will these keep you warm but they also go well with turtlenecks and sweaters, jackets and coats. Cap the ensemble off with over-the-knee boots or flat heeled booties for a warm but still Instagram-worthy outfit.

Of course, don’t forget to get at least one pretty blanket wrap scarf. It’s an effortless way to keep yourself comfortable and still be in style.
