Summer is coming to an end and you’ve finally achieved that very much wanted sun-kissed skin tone. Now, you should make the most of it by complementing your freshly tanned skin with the perfect jewelry. Here are some ideas to make your skin light up even more with just a little bit of crafty accessorizing.
Play with contrasts
Use the power of contrasting colors to attract more attention to your skin and make it seem even more tanned. Wear as much of white as you can, and make your jewelry count for it, too. You can combine a statement white detailed necklace with a monochromatic outfit to break up the color tension and emphasize your breasts and neckline. Also, elegant watches with white, leather bracelets will make your arms and hands look especially sophisticated. Furthermore, take a chance to paint your nails in bright shades such as white, cream of pastel yellow in order to strengthen the effect even more.
Metallic shades are bomb
You can never go wrong with combining metallic accents with your fabulous skin tone and make it even more fabulous. Metallics add a contemporary edge to any look, and in case you were wondering which metal colors go with your summer tan – all of them do. Whether you are a bronze fan, a silver enthusiast or a sucker for white gold, it’s quite certain that you’ll find jewelry pieces to complement your tan quite easily. As you throw yourself in the jewelry hunt, make sure to look for pieces that go well with the rest of your wardrobe. Keep in mind that metals aren’t good for mixing different kinds together, so you’ll be better off if you get a bronze set, a silver set and platinum set separately. Going out with a silver bracelet and gold earrings is considered a huge fashion no-no.
Emphasize your face with earrings
When it comes to your face, nothing works better for pointing out its sun-kissed color than choosing the right earrings. It’s quite obvious that not all of us tan the same way, and consequently some of us have more of a caramel colored skin, while others tend to have various shades of bronze. Whichever color your tanned skin might take, you can rely on chic rose gold earrings to complement your skin color perfectly. The rose shades give the gold a special look with an enchantingly elegant touch to it. Just make sure not to overdo it, because you can easily do so if you choose earrings that are too large for your face. In order to truly get the most out of this effect, opt for subtle earrings with just a dash of glitter or a discrete set of tiny gems.
Match your face shape
Tanned skin lines are more easily noticeable, which is why you should pay special attention when choosing jewelry for your summer skin tone to match it with the shape of your face. Heart-shaped faces tend to look wider when they get tanned, which is why visually lengthening them with dangle or drop types of earrings might be a good idea. Round faces go best with geometrically shaped jewelry with a lot of edges, and the necklaces should go beneath the neckline. The counter-logic is the same with rectangular shaped faces – avoid sharp edges and straight lines and opt for short and round earrings, as well as chokers. Oval faces are probably the easiest for combining jewelry since they give you a freedom of choice to decide on both short and long necklaces, as long as you avoid too long and dangling earrings.
Make sure to moisturize and exfoliate your skin in order to keep your rightfully earned tan and shine bright like a sun-kissed diamond you are for as long as possible.
