As many women know getting ready for a date can be an exhilarating and sometimes nail-biting experience. You find yourself constantly asking yourself a million questions like, “What should I wear?” , “What image do I want to project?”, “Do I look sophisticated?” and  ”Is this too much?” Wouldn’t it be great if we all had a personal stylist to tell us what works and what doesn’t on any given occasion? Well, we all don’t have that luxury. However, there are some simple rules that you can follow that will have you looking sophisticated and sleek no matter what the occasion.

 An Afternoon Lunch Date….

 So, you the man of your dreams has asked you out for a lunch date. Your date will clearly be a little more casual because it is during the day but that doesn’t mean that you can’t add a little flair to your look with some gorgeous jewelry. First, think about the image that you would like to portray. Do you want to project a fun yet flirty look? Maybe you would like to channel Audrey Hepburn’s infamous sophistication. Tiny colored gemstones are an alluring contrast to soft knits and cashmere cardigans. The kaleidoscope of shimmering colors shows your zest for life. Throw on a gorgeous pair of pearl earrings or a pearl necklace to exude a timelessly beautiful look. Pair a sculpted ring with a casual ensemble to show off your well-manicured fingers.  The great thing about classic accessories like these is that they can take your look from day to night with ease.



 A Dinner Date….

 Little black dress…check. Gorgeous pair of stilettos..check. Now, what type of jewelry are you going to wear? Even though it is a good idea to think about what image you want to project; remember, you can never go wrong with a sexy yet sophisticated look. A beautiful drop necklace elongates the neck and draws attention to your collarbone. Try an exquisite pair of chandelier earrings to frame your face in a shimmering allure that is destined to get attention. Don’t forget about your hands. A statement cocktail ring is a great way to add over-the-top style to your ensemble without having to sacrifice style. A great fashion tip is to remember not to wear them all at once. Each one of these jewelry pieces are bold enough to be paired with minimal jewelry.

 I’ll Have a Cosmopolitan Please…..

 Going out for cocktails is a great excuse to wear fun yet flirty jewelry and show off your brassier side. Consider taking some fashion risks and incorporate intriguing gemstones such as blue goldstone or red jade into your jewelry palette. I’m sure you’ve noticed that statement necklaces are still making a huge impact in the fashion world. Try and find eclectic pieces that flaunt various textures, large gemstones and over-sized shapes. If you plan on going dancing afterwards, think about stacking some metallic bangles on your wrists to add even more movement to your look. It’s okay to be trendy on these occasions….feel free to experiment with different looks…and ultimately, have a good time while doing it.

 When it comes to fashion and accessorizing, the most important thing is to remember to be true to who you are. Although experimenting with different looks can help your style evolve, you should always make sure that “you are wearing the jewelry and not letting the jewelry wear you.”
