Often when we’re flicking through magazines or social media, we’ll see a celebrity look that we want to emulate. But, when it comes to their jewellery, for the vast majority of us wearing the exact same piece is financially out of our reach.
But don’t despair! It’s entirely possible to recreate a celebrity look in a much more affordable way, and I’ll show you how…
Killing it with Crystals
Let’s be honest, most of us don’t have the budget to splash out on expensive gemstones!
But that doesn’t mean you have to swing to the other end of the spectrum and by plastic instead. Plastic gemstones can look tacky, so avoid them and choose crystal options.
When it comes to statement jewellery, there are certain details that are key to the design, so for these more glamorous pieces try to stick to clear crystals. This will give you that luxury celebrity look you’re going for, without the risk of looking “cheap”.
Mute the metals
Super shiny metals can give the impression that the jewellery you’re wearing is low cost.
When you’ve gone to the effort of putting a great look together, the last thing you want is for your accessories to look tacky and draw attention away from your outfit.
Try to find pieces where the metal is more muted than shiny or in a darker colour, as this will give a more expensive feel.
The statement celebrity look
When it comes to statement jewellery, it’s important to ensure you make the right kind of statement!
Unfortunately, these big and bold pieces can sometimes look cheap, even when they’ve been designed to elevate a boring looking outfit. Often it’s because of the materials used, or the choice of colours, or a combination of both!
So, when it comes to an affordable but glamorous statement piece, to get the celebrity look opt for ones where the design itself makes the statement and the materials and colours are kept natural and elegant.
Don’t get green with envy!
Picture this… You’re dressed to perfection and feeling like the celebrity that you are. You’ve been receiving so many lovely compliments about how great you look and you’re feeling on top of the world!
Halfway through the night you visit the powder room, look in the mirror and to your horror the gorgeous “gold” jewellery you’re wearing is starting to leave a horrible green mark on your skin! Now, rather than feeling like a glamour puss, you feel a little embarrassed instead.
I do not want this experience for you!
So, to avoid this scenario, keep away from wearing nickel, copper, and gold-plated metals directly against your skin.
There you have it – follow these 4 tips and you’ll be recreating your favourite celebrity looks with ease and, most importantly, without breaking the bank!
