How To Pick Jewelry for Your Skin Tone Type
Do you look better in silver or gold? What jewelry you choose to wear should be dependent on your skin tone type. Check out our guide here!
However, if you want to know which jewelry is going to be most flattering on your skin tone type, you’re in the right place.
The stunning necklaces, rings, and extravagant headbands you love elevate the versatility of your wardrobe. After all, the perfect piece of jewelry can make you feel like the most gorgeous person in all of Target. Your everyday jewelry staples turn into the tiny, little comfort blankets you get to bring on every adventure. Whether it's a simple chain or a bold ring, your accessories contribute to the way the rest of the world perceives you. Take advantage of that by using your jewelry as another way to express your individuality.
Ultimately, you can style any color and type of jewelry and look great. However, there are some age-old truths in regard to which colors will be the most flattering for your skin tone type, and therefore can be thrown on every day without a second thought.
Figure out which jewelry to wear when you want to look your best without exerting any effort.
Skin tone 101
First things first, let’s discuss skin tone. Whether you have a warm, cold, or neutral skin tone determines the color of jewelry to which you can default. Take a look at the veins on your wrist. If they’re blue or purple, you’re probably cool-toned, and if they’re green, you’re probably warm-toned. If there’s a mix, you likely have neutral tones, and as a rule of thumb, you probably fall into the cool-tone category. People with cool tones also tend to burn easily, where as warm-skinned people don't. Hopefully with this information, you’re able to determine whether you’re cool- or warm-toned. If not, there’s nothing I can do for you.
For the cool-toned baddies
Now that we got the boring stuff out of the way, let’s party! As a cool-toned icon, silver and white metals are going to be your best bet. Unfortunately, we’re living through a total gold renaissance. As a cool-toned girly myself, I’ve attended many a Los Angeles flea market and left empty-handed as a result of the extreme drought in silver necklaces. Gold is the hot girl on campus right now. She’s beautiful and everybody knows it, including her. Good for gold! But silver is the understated best friend who takes off her glasses at the homecoming dance and everyone realizes she’s actually been hot the whole time, too. Gorgeous silver pieces definitely exist, even though you may have to work a little harder to find ones you love. The benefit of this is that you’re more likely to stand out while sporting them. Focus on incorporating a simple silver necklace and some studs into your everyday routine for an elevated look that requires no thoughts.
For the warm-toned stunners
Congratulations on not being easily sunburned! You’re stronger than the largest object in our solar system, and that’s not something to be humble about. Gold is your go-to jewelry color, and lucky for you, she’s having a real moment. You could walk into any store and find some incredible gold pieces right now. When I scour the internet for silver necklaces, it takes every ounce of willpower not to purchase a dozen gold items instead. Every celebrity in the game right now seems to be rocking some beautiful gold pieces. The gold hoops Selena Gomez wears in the murder mystery series Only Murders in the Building have become their own independent character in my mind. If anyone can crack the case, it’s those earrings. Take a page out of Selena’s book and invest in some gold hoops for a touch of glamour that can be worn every day.
While these are the general rules for jewelry, rules are made to be broken! Play around with different kinds of metals when you get bored. I realized at a young age that silver complements my skin tone type best, but I’m not afraid to throw on a few gold pieces when I know it’ll look better with my outfit. Similarly, if you get tired of gold, don’t be afraid to throw some silver into the mix! Show us your favorite jewelry pieces by tagging @mobilestylesapp on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter.
