You have your very own and unique style and prefer to dress against the current trend? That is really great! But, we also think it is great if you like to go with the trend.
The most important thing is that you can identify with your style. Only you have to like your style and you have to feel comfortable with it.
In our opinion, having a unique style does not mean no one else ever wears the same outfit or jewelry.
It is much more about having an individual reason and a unique meaning for your style and jewelry.
How? Why? What for? These are the questions about your style that you have answered for yourself. Consciously or unconsciously.
You express yourself through your style in your individual way and that is exactly what is unique about your style.
We have 5 Tips.. or rather our Takes on Jewelry and Style for you:
They can help you on how you can coordinate colors and shapes when it comes to outfits with our jewelry. That way you can complement your outfit or put your jewelry in the spotlight. So your outfit becomes even more expressive.
We explain to you how you combine & coordinate colors and shapes so that it creates a visually harmonious picture.
Just like the trend, your unique style is always changing and it is up to you how it changes. Our tips therefore only serve as an inspiration. We hope that one tip or another can serve you as well.
1. Jewelry Color & Skin Tone
You can determine your skin tone to find out which jewelry color suits you. There is a rough distinction between warm and cold skin tones.
You can tell which skin tone you have by looking at the color of your veins on your forearm. If your veins are bluish, you have a cool skin tone and if your veins are rather green, you have a warm skin tone.
The rule of thumb is that the silver tends to harmonize with a cool skin tone and the gold with a warm skin tone.
Rose gold is the perfect universal color because it suits both skin tones well.
The rule of thumb is certainly a good guidance, but the most important rule is the "Aphrodite Rule": You are unique, so choose the jewelry color that you like best!
2. Combining Jewelry
To pick up on the first point: You do not have to wear a single jewelry color, you can also combine them.
For a long time it was a no-go to combine different colors. But now a mixture of different metals is super modern.
No matter whether silver and gold or rose gold - combine as you like. By doing so, you can reinvent your jewelry collection and own unique style again and again.
Just remember that you do not combine too much jewelry at once, otherwise it can look cluttered (unless you are aiming for that cluttered look).
Even if combining colors is very trendy right now, it will never go out of style to wear different pieces of jewelry in one color.
Feel free to try out different colors, combinations and styles. And keep the ones you like best. As the "Aphrodite Rule" again: You are unique, so wear your jewelry as you want!
3. Color Harmony in Outfits
To conclude the topic of colors, we now come to the interplay of jewelry and clothing colors. You can follow the rule of thumb of point #1 again:
Since you wear jewelry mostly on the upper body, you can orient yourself on what top you wear. If the color or tone of your top is warm, gold harmonizes with the top. If the color or tone of your top is cool, silver fits very well.
Warm colors include red and orange, and cold colors blue and purple. But the tone also plays a role, because a bright pink or yellow is also warm, but if these two colors are rather bright or faded, you can also perceive them as cool.
Rose gold goes well with all colors. This color always complements your outfit perfectly.
If you want to highlight your jewelry, a great way to do it is by wearing a black, gray or white top. These simple and unobtrusive colors direct the focus to your jewelry.
You can also fit your outfit and jewelry color to your feeling of the day and express yourself in a playful way.
Now we have told you which colors go well together. If you fancy a striking look, you can of course combine flashy colors as you like. Because again, the "Aphrodite Rule" applies: Follow your own unique style.
4. Interplay of Shapes
There are also a few tips for the combination of jewelry shapes and their interplay with the outfit, which lead to a harmonious look.
First of all, ask yourself whether you want to make a statement or complement your outfit with your jewelry.
If you choose eye-catching jewelry - size, color or shape - it is advisable to wear a simple outfit. So the jewelry sticks out and you set a statement.
However, if you prefer to complement your outfit with your jewelry, you can go with a more eye-catchy outfit. The interplay of simple and conspicuous creates a beautiful contrast that creates a harmonious picture.
Keyword contrast; Between necklaces and earrings you can also create wonderful contrasts with the shapes. Long earrings can be combined with a tight necklace or choker. Conversely, short earrings go great with a longer necklace.
Shapes can also be used in the combination of your necklace and top. With a V-neck top, a V-shaped necklace matches perfectly, as the neckline looks like a frame.For a hoodie, a choker is recommended and if you wear something shoulder-free, a choker or tight round necklaces match very well. With a turtleneck, it should be a relatively tight necklace, whether round or V-shaped.
Necklace layering still is very trendy and you can be really creative. If you would like to achieve a smooth look, you can layer three chains with three fingers apart.
For shapes as well as for colors: Try, try, try and keep the looks you like - just follow your unique style. In the fifth and most important tip, we go into this in more detail.
5. Be Unique!
It is as the saying goes: Exceptions confirm the rule. Although these are only tips or even rather takes and not rules, it amounts to the same thing.
The previous four tips can help you combine colors and shapes in a harmonious way. However, this tip is by far the most important and it matches our slogan and message:
Be Unique! That means, find your own unique style, the one you like best. So you can express yourself perfectly through your style.
If one of our tips inspired you, we are very happy! If this is not the case, we are happy as well, because we at Aphrodite are wholeheartedly behind uniqueness.
It is therefore most important to us that you have the courage to create and wear your own unique style. The only person that has to like your style is yourself. And if you feel comfortable and confident with your style - everyone will notice and admire you and your style.
