What Jewelry to Wear With a Green Dress
Fall is rapidly approaching and before we know it, our winter will be filled with holidays and get-togethers. Parties are a fun opportunity to get dressed up and express your personal style. The color green is one of the most popular and versatile colors to wear during the fall and winter season. It is a great alternative to your classic black dress because depending on the shade, it can work as a neutral or make a bold statement.
The variety in shades make green appealing for almost every hair color and skin tone and it can be complemented with an array of jewelry. In this post we will discuss what jewelry can be worn with a green dress.
Consult a Color Chart
The color green comes in a variety of colors and hues. When dressing yourself and picking out accessories, consider using a color chart to identify complementary colors. First, determine which base color is predominant in the shade of green you are wearing.
If yellow is more dominant, choose warmer colors such as ivory or red. If you are dressing for the holidays, a deep emerald green dress would look stunning and festive with red gemstones such as rubies, garnets and spinels.
If your green dress has predominantly blue hues, choose cooler toned accessories. Lilac and violet tones would pair well with a bluish-green dress. Choose jewelry with purple sapphires or amethysts to complement a dress in this tone of green.
Depending on your dress and the style you are trying to achieve, it is best to stick to cool or warm colors. Mixing the two can clash and create an inharmonious look while complementary colors create a high contrast, vibrant look.
Another way the color wheel can be used is to choose analogous colors. Analogous colors are the ones right next to each other on the color wheel. By choosing a color that is similar yet different, you can create harmony in your outfit without it being too monochromatic.
Mix & Match Metals
A green dress creates a stunning canvas to layer any metal or gemstone, depending on the look you are going for. Silver or white gold jewelry looks beautiful with a green dress and provides a more neutral statement.
Yellow gold with a green dress is so glamorous. Add dimension to your dress by layering yellow gold necklaces and bracelets. You can also choose to wear both white and yellow gold in a mixture of earrings, necklaces and bracelets to add dramatic flair to your ensemble.
