Diamonds are an item that used to be kept tucked away in a special drawer, taken out only for special occasions. However, there is absolutely no reason as to why you cannot wear diamonds casually on weekends, but, if you have never done so, here are a few styling tips to get you started.
Statement Diamonds with Jeans and a T-Shirt
Statement jewelry is a huge trend right now, and while you may feel as though your flashy diamond necklace may be too much for everyday wear, this is only because you have not tried wearing pairing it with a classic jeans and t-shirt combination. Opt for a soft white tee, and designer jeans that fit perfectly, topping your look off with a tailored blazer with rolled up sleeves. This last touch will really help to complete your look, as it will give it more polish but also tone down the extravagance of the diamonds a bit.
Diamonds with Cashmere and Wool
If you plan on spending your weekend snuggled up on the sofa watching a few movies, there are ways in which you can do this while still wearing your diamonds. Cozy knitwear is perfect for a weekend such as this, with a cashmere and wool pullover being a great blend to keep you warm while still being soft against the skin. Opt for a design that has a deep V-neck, and pair this with a classic, simple diamond necklace, such as one in a teardrop shape. The texture of your pullover will help to set off the sparkle on your subtle diamond, while the neckline will frame it beautifully.
Stackable Rings with an Androgynous Outfit
For those who are looking for a way to wear diamonds with an edgy, androgynous outfit, then stackable rings are the way to go. Take inspiration from Cara Delevingne, who manages to incorporate diamonds into both her high fashion and casual looks. Stackable rings are a style that she often rocks, as these bring some glitz and glamour into an otherwise darker, androgynous outfit.
Diamond Tennis Bracelets
Diamond tennis bracelets are perfect for those who are seeking diamonds that they can wear each and every day, with a style that will work with just about every outfit. They work well both on their own, as well as with other items of jewelry, whether this be an elegant watch or other bracelets. To emphasize its casual appeal, make sure that the bracelet fits your wrist perfectly, as it should be relatively loose, slipping down to where your wrist meets your hand when your arm is by your side. While it may be tempting to tighten the bracelet to make it feel more secure, this actually leads to a higher risk of the bracelet breaking off due to the extra pressure being applied to it.
If you have not yet tried pairing your diamonds with casual items of clothing, this is a great way to mix up your style a bit. Whether you go for an outfit that is casual yet classic, edgy and androgynous or soft and cozy, there is always a way in which you can incorporate diamonds into your look.
