Red Carpet-Worthy Jewels
When you have a big night out you want to shine and make a statement, just like your favorite celebs do on the red carpet. Here are some of my favorite pieces that will make you feel like a star.
If you are attending a black-tie affair, consider choosing a theme to inspire your outfit and put a lot of attention into the small details. Hands down, one of my favorite red carpet looks ever was Blake Lively at the Cannes Film Festival in 2016. She wore a Cinderella-inspired gown with a scoop neckline and styled it with trillion-shaped gemstone earrings to bring out the beading in her dress. She finished her look with a chunky bracelet and a fun right-hand ring. If your outfit features beading, consider wearing jewels that match the shape of the beads. One of my favorites is this traditional blue sapphire and diamond ring.
That same evening, Blake also wore a dress inspired by Elsa from Frozen. She accessorized with huge diamond stud earrings with pear-shaped dangles to tie in the icicle theme, and added a matching wrap bracelet and ring. Because many people cannot wear bracelets at work, dressing up is the perfect time to wear one! Consider this stunning diamond bracelet, which features 333 brilliant round diamonds.
Wearing a strapless dress? That is the perfect opportunity to show off a statement necklace! One of the most well-known red carpet looks in recent history was Jessica Alba at the 2013 Golden Globes, when she showed off a stunning $5.8 million diamond necklace. She wore her hair in loose curls swept to one side and dressed up her ears with diamond studs. To achieve this look, pair your strapless dress with this stunning diamond necklace, displaying 1.95 carats in trendy cluster designs. It’s guaranteed to turn heads all night long!
Another way to stand out is by wearing bright colors, like Taylor Swift did at the 2016 Grammys. She wore an orange bandeau with a hot pink floor-length skirt, short cropped hair and a multi-colored jewel choker. Even if your clothing is bright, don’t be afraid to wear colorful jewelry too! You are dressing up and making a statement, after all! Match your clothing with this multi-colored sapphire bracelet.
Don’t be afraid to wear earrings, even with your hair down! Swift’s date to that event was Selena Gomez, who wore her long, dark hair down in loose curls and a midnight blue strappy dress. The large diamond hoop earrings she wore were extremely dazzling. If you have a dark complexion and/or if you are wearing a dark dress, diamonds will really pop. These teardrop dangle earrings are absolutely perfect.
