Jewelry can really add some unexpected glam to an outfit, so it’s imperative that you have the basic jewelry essentials. You’ll never know when you’ll need a glitzy pair of dangling earrings for a night out or a pair of bangles, so it’s best to keep them handy. The jewelry essentials I have listed below will help you dress up for any occasion, no matter how last minute it is!
1. Dangling Earrings
I had to include dangling earrings on the list of jewelry essentials because they are perfect for a night out or to dress up any outfit. There are many different types of dangling earrings; my favorite are chandeliers!
2. Stud Earrings
Stud earrings are so versatile! Wear them as your everyday pair of earrings. You can get glitzy ones, ones that are shaped like hearts or stars or even plain silver or gold. They’re pretty darn inexpensive too, so you can pick up many different pairs!
3. Hoop Earrings
I love hoop earrings! Similar to dangling earrings, they can jazz up any outfit. You don’t need to purchase monstrous sized hoops either! Small ones will work just fine! There are many different bedazzled types on the market as well.
4. Statement Ring
Rings are totally in this year and the flashier the better. But if you’re going to wear a super flashy ring, don’t wear more than one. Make it a statement ring. It’ll definitely dress up any outfit!
5. Long Necklace
The layered long necklace look is totally trendy right now. It’s definitely necessary to own at least one long necklace that you love. Find a necklace that you can easily pair with several outfits. Perhaps a necklace with several charms would be perfect!
6. Short Necklace
If you’re going to get a long necklace, then you’ll have to get a short necklace too! You can layer them or wear them apart. Plus, some outfits look better with shorter necklaces. You can even go for a choker necklace if that’s your thing!
7. Gold and Silver Necklaces
I love silver more than gold, but sometimes a gold necklace is necessary! I mean, gold will match some outfits, but not others. That’s why it’s so important to have both gold and silver accessories in your jewelry box.
8. Statement Necklace
This necklace should be big and/or bling-y! Shop around until you find the perfect one!
Bangles can add glam to any outfit. They’re usually sold in bunches so you can totally complete your look with one accessory!
I absolutely love watches! They’re practical and glamorous, so how could you go wrong? I recommend investing in a beautiful long-lasting time piece (and wearing it every day!).
11. Statement Bracelet
Get your hands on a statement bracelet. Whether it be studded, smothered in crystals or on the larger side, your statement bracelet should, well... make a statement! This type of bracelet would definitely be worn when dressing up for a special occasion!
Anklets are perfect to wear in the spring or summer months. They’re cute, dainty and add a touch of glamour to your look!
13. Toe Ring
Toe rings are usually overlooked accessories, but they’re perfect for the spring and summer seasons when you’re showing off your feet in any way you can! Just slip on a few toe rings and ta-da, instant glitz!
So, ladies, did your favorite accessory make this list? What jewelry essentials must you wear every day? I personally love rings and watches!
