Thinking about how do you know what jewelry works for your outfit? In this short post we’ll help by discussing 3 tips on choosing the right jewelry that can beautify, complement and add zest to your outfit.


Necklaces

Necklace
Much like clothing, necklace styles can work towards changing the viewer’s perception of your height. If you are very short and want to give the perception that you are taller than you want to choose necklaces that are longer. Necklaces that are V-shaped or Y-shaped lariat's can elongate your appearance. you want to pick necklaces that go below your boss but not pass your waist. These shapes and lengths will want your torso and make you appear taller. When choosing necklaces, you also want to think about the volume or chunkiness of the necklace. a large boned or full figured gal will want a necklace that has a little bit of volume - perhaps large chunky stones or a thick link. If you are petite, however larger jewelry may not look right on you and you may want to choose something more delicate. Source: Streetdirectory

 

Rings


Rings

When purchasing rings, you can have great fun - again the choices are endless from large and overwhelming to dainty and feminine. The length and size of your fingers plays an important role in what will look good. For example, long skinny fingers don't look good with huge oversized rings, yet on a woman that has long thicker fingers they look exquisite. Long nails? Short nails? it all makes a difference. Play and see what you like, and what looks good. Also, determine where you will be wearing these rings. For example, if you're working around fine fabrics, you'll not want any rings that have sharp edges that could snag. Your rings are also part of your total statement.
Although you may have a favorite designer, there's really no need to stick with just one. In fact, there's no need for the pieces to actually be designer. There are plenty of wonderful pieces on the market that are unsigned but certainly make a fashion statement. Mix and match your jewelry to give it character and a little pizazz! Source: wikiHow

 

Earrings

EarringsAlthough there are no set rules for choosing earrings based on hair color, if you have blonde or a more golden hair color, gold earrings may be more flattering on you than platinum. Likewise, dark haired women tend to find platinum to be more complimentary. If you have red hair, gold is striking, but you may want to venture into rose gold which I think looks stunning on most redheads. In general, if you have short hair that leaves your earlobes exposed, you can wear any earrings you choose. For long hair, the best choice is long dangling earrings or bright colors with sparkle and shine-you want them to show! However, if you are going to wear your hair up, your choices are endless.


Earrings should be fun and make a statement about who you are. Why not experiment a bit and see what earring designs work best for you? Earrings can be a fun and flattering way to enhance your wardrobe as well as your appearance. Source: Wixonjewelers

With Toronto fashion week now over, it is the time to look back at the runways and celebrity fashion to explore jewelry trends that will shape the rest of year to come.  Three of the current trends popping up are yellow gold, layering necklaces, and stacking rings.


Yellow Gold
- There has been plenty of exposure for yellow gold from celebrities at Awards shows and to fashion runways all over the world, gold jewelry has been bountiful. It doesn't hurt that is also the most complimentary accessory for the 70's boho inspired looks from the Spring 2015 runways. The classic gold is here to say.

Layering Necklaces
- The relaxed silhouettes coming of the runways for spring 2015 offer a plethora of different necklines making layering styles a great addition to you collection.  Whether the pieces are multi-strands or just singles layers together, small and simple necklaces when layered together can make a big statement.

Stacking Rings -  The relaxed silhouettes this year call for casual accessories, including the layered look on the hand.  Stacking rings is a topic that has been discussed before on our blog and is a continuing trend. Build a bigger look on your hand with lots of small rings.

Stacking Jewelry

Coco Chanel’s famous edict “before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off” is beginning to fall by the wayside.  There is a more-is-more mindset happening when it comes to jewelry right now, it is all about pairing new finds with old favourites.  Wearing numerous pieces of jewelry is no longer a taboo.  Do not be confused, stacking jewelry can still be a delicate art form.  Throwing on all of your jewelry aimlessly can run the risk of looking like a child who raided their mother’s jewelry box.  The key is rather than scattering pieces all over the body, stack them and concentrate on a specific part of the body. One tip to stacking is to experiment with shapes and lines. Having a combination of horizontal and vertical pieces, and creating a bit of negative space, will ensure that it never looks like you are wearing too many pieces of jewelry at once.  Below are some great stacking ideas to get you started.



2014 has been a big year for KAVUT.  From taking part in pop-up shops, to carrying exciting new lines of jewelry exclusive to KAVUT within Toronto and Canada, and being being featured in several publications.  Of course the biggest change this year is the opening of the brick and mortar KAVUT Jewelry Bar at 102 Scollard St, Toronto.  KAVUT would like to than everyone for an amazing year and we are looking forward to many things to come in the new year.
