How To Pick Your Accessories To Match Your Body Structure

The biggest mistake that most of us do when we pick our accessories, is not considering the body structure that we have. While some accessories will look great on mannequins and on images of models, they may not look the same in real life. Remember that mannequins are not alive and that images of models and celebrities can be often retouched to look the best. Therefore, it is very important to consider the shape and structure of your body before you opt for some pieces, especially if they involve precious stones, because a refund or exchange might not always be possible.

If you are petite

If you have a petite build, which means that you are not taller than five feet and five inches and you have a slender frame as well with shoulders that are not too broad and muscular and a neck that it rather dainty, you will not want to go to this fine jewellery shop and buy a piece that will cover your entire collar bone area. Wearing something so heavy on your slender frame will make it look like you have no neck and will make your frame look even more narrow than it is. Appreciate the fact that you have a petite frame that most women wish for and celebrate that with simple and delicate pieces that only slightly accentuate the lines of your figure.

If you are tall

You can purchase diamonds rings for sale easily no matter what your body structure is like, but what about the other pieces that you wanted to get like earrings and a necklace? If you are above five feet and five inches in height and you also have a lean frame that makes you look like you measure six feet, you can afford to wear chunky pieces that are heavy on working. You most certainly have the body structure to carry it off, however if you have a very thin frame you might want to go a bit simple instead. Wearing chunky pieces will give you emphasis and it is best to opt for ear studs as opposed to long tousled earrings that will give your neckline even more length.

If you are of medium height and broadness of structure

If you are not petite yet not very tall and you are neither broad nor narrow when it comes to the body structure, you have to figure out what will look best on you through a lot of trial and error. Your body structure is a versatile one so the best thing for you to do, is to visit your seller and try on the pieces before you purchase them. You are better off looking at yourself in a full length mirror that will indicate how the piece alters your complete body image as opposed to just the top half of your body.
