Shopping for jewelry can be an overwhelming experience. That’s because one piece can always be worn in various ways. One piece changes the entire look of an outfit. So how do you know you’ve picked the right piece?
When shopping on-line for jewelry, at places like www.skoufiscc.com, it can be frustrating if you don’t know how to pick the right piece. I like to think there is no such thing as a bad piece of jewelry. It’s just how you wear it. You might be thinking to yourself that sounds crazy; “jewelry has to be accessorized correctly to wear it correctly?” But that’s really not what I mean. The truth is you just have to be able to tell if the jewelry is a statement piece or an enhancement piece. A statement piece is like your “diva.” It’s the star of the show and everything around it is just supporting it. An enhancement piece however, is the back-up dancer: it makes the star of the show look better. There should always be one “Diva” in every ensemble. Rather that is the accessories, or the clothing, is up to you. Take the famous Green Versace dress worn by Jennifer Lopez to the Grammy’s in 2003. That dress was the “Diva.” She had earrings and rings on as well, but all you remember is the dress. That’s what enhancement jewelry is. On the other hand, think of Flavor Flav. Every time you think of him an image of a clock around his necklace comes to mind, right? That’s called a statement piece.
Now that we know the difference between a statement piece and enhancement piece, you should be able to narrow your purchase down to one of those two categories. The next factor to determine is what you are purchasing for. Are you purchasing to have an accessory to spruce up your everyday outfit? If so, what’s your everyday style? Is it calm and casual? Is it bold and exciting? Remember to purchase the opposite of whatever your style is. Or is the jewelry purchase intended for a special occasion? If so, ask yourself the same questions above and follow the same rules. Enhancement jewelry for statement clothing, and statement jewelry for enhancing clothes.
