Romantic Gifts for a Fashion Conscious Woman

Buying gifts for the woman in your life is never easy. Most women have very firm opinions about what they want and they are not afraid to let you know when you screw it up. Buying the wrong gift is a serious mistake, so here are some great gift ideas to help you navigate a potential minefield.

Jewelry

You cannot go too far wrong with a gift of jewelry – unless of course you go down the cheap and cheerful route and buy the woman in your life some plastic beads. They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, so if you want to really push the boat out, buy a statement piece from Ascot Diamonds. If Kim Kardashian can demand a diamond choker from Kanye West as her ‘push present’, the woman in your life deserves something special too.

If diamonds are not within your budget but you still want to choose a piece of jewelry, a heart-shaped locket will make a wonderfully romantic gift. You do not need to spend a fortune on jewelry. There are many creative artisans out there producing amazing pieces. Look locally and see what is available from craft fairs and antique shops. A simple pendant or silver bangle will be much appreciated.

Designer Handbag

Designer handbags are always a good choice. Most women have several different handbags in their closet, one for every occasion. Chanel is a lot more romantic than Target, so it is worth saving up for a designer handbag if you want to push the boat out. Some brands are more expensive than others are, but do not be afraid to buy online if you want a bargain. However, do make sure the product you buy is the genuine article, as not all of them are.

Sexy Shoes

Women can never have enough shoes. Heels are sexy and very romantic, especially when they are worn for your eyes only. You can check her shoe size by looking at the other pairs of shoes in her closet. Once you know her size, start looking for the right pair of shoes.

Strappy heels are always a good choice, particularly if they come with a designer label. Look for shoes made from soft leather, as these are more comfortable to wear.

Lingerie

Lingerie is super romantic, but only if you buy it in the correct size. No woman will be impressed if you buy her sexy lingerie three sizes too big. If you make this fatal mistake, your gift is likely to be thrown back in your face, which rather undermines your good intentions.

Try to avoid buying tacky designs in gaudy colors, unless you are certain the recipient likes this style of lingerie. Instead, stick to silk and lace garments in pale, pastel colors, as these tend to be more romantic. Lastly, bear in mind that comfort is more important than sex appeal, as this gift is for her benefit not yours.

Remember, romantic gifts work best when they are given without the benefit of extensive hints from the recipient.

  • Basics are flexible and can be worn throughout the week. You can experiment with different stones and metals as well as custom pendants.

Budget

Jewelry is always a worthwhile investment because it is much more than an accessory. It is symbolic and serves as a reflection of your personal style and personality. When you make this type of investment, it is important to consider your budget.

If there is a particular piece that you are interested in, you can set aside enough money to facilitate the purchase. There are also numerous affordable and high-quality options to choose from. Jewelry is a great reward for anyone and everyone needs to treat themselves and their loved ones occasionally.

Maintenance

Regardless of what your budget may be, you will be able to find the initial pieces that you will use to start building your wardrobe. After identifying and buying the jewelry pieces such as custom jewelry, you need to make sure that you take care of all your jewelry. Keep it as clean as possible and store it properly.

Three Ways to Rock this Summer Events with Pearl Jewelry and Accessories

It seems that everything that matters in terms of parties and events occurs in summer. After all, this is the perfect season to show off the latest fashion trends, reinvent ourselves and have plenty of fun at parties, festivals, venue openings and so on. And just as we all know, a woman’s outfit would be poor and less attractive without some killer accessories and jewelry pieces to flatter her natural beauty, skin tone and personal style.

When it comes to pearls, some people think they are obsolete or at least reserved for weddings. In case you haven’t found out yet, pearls made a huge comeback this year, and all important designers feature pearl jewelry in their collections. Bold, beautiful, massive or demure, classic or innovative, pearl jewelry designs are all the rage this year. So if you happen to own such a delicate thing of beauty, let’s see three stylish combos with pearls, clothes, and other accessories so you can rock all events this summer and become a staple of fashion and taste.

1. Black-Tie Event and the Pearl Choker

A pearl choker, no matter the color of pearls (to spice things up we recommend black pearls, pink, lavender or golden ones), is the ultimate symbol of refinement and femininity. A pearl choker works incredibly well with a strapless dress or an off-shoulder outfit to compliment your neckline and skin tone. A high-end party, charity ball, a movie premiere or a classy gallery opening night requires formal dressing. You can always go for a long evening gown and a pearl choker for a dash of sophisticated glamour. If you want to truly draw attention and stand out of the crowd, style your pearl choker with a diamond brooch or diamond rondels. If you want to achieve a harmonious look, pick a pearl jewelry set with choker and pearl studs.

2. The Cocktail Party and the Pearl Drop Earrings

Summer is the best season to attend a cocktail party, a night summer stylish gathering, a fancy night out with the girls or a hot summer date. As we all know already, the little black dress will take you everywhere. Pick a black backless midi cocktail dress and style it up further with a pair of stilettos and some pearl drop earrings. You can pick a natural pearl shade of silver for sparkle or a sweet pink to soften the black. White pearls make an elegant contrast to a black attire, and they usually work well with all skin tones and outfits as they don’t clash with the dress.

3. Casual Chic Night Events and the Pearl Cocktail Ring

A casual chic summer party allows you to wear anything from miniskirts to jeans-and-tank-top outfits. After all, a new club opening, a late night outdoor summer friendly gathering, a casual stylish date, a bar hopping night out all require you to feel comfortable and slick. These are the types of events that usually incorporate statement pieces of jewelry, chunky necklaces, rhinestones, stacked bracelets and flashy clothes. But if you truly want to stand out of the crowd, you can pick only one oversized pearl cocktail ring. It is a statement piece, no doubt, but it also comes with that royal, seductive and complex sophistication only pearls can offer to a woman. It speaks about elegance in the simplest manner while capturing the eye and having everybody speak about your upscale tastes.

Pearls can be worn by all women of all ages as they are forever precious, glamorous and classy without being too flashy. No matter what myths and symbols you associate with pearls, you should know they are the best types of natural gems to be worn on casual, office or special occasions. They can style up any outfit. Pick the right shade for you and mix pearls with other pieces of jewelry for a breathtaking effect!

Tried and True Men’s Jewelry For the Red Carpet

When it comes to awards season, there is so much buzz about whose gowns and jewelry celebrities will be wearing, but the majority of the talk centers around the ladies. In all fairness to the guys who are headed to the many incarnations of the red carpet, they may not have as much of a variety in the formal wear that they have to choose from, but there is a way to kick up their style with their designer suits by selecting some key jewelry pieces to polish off the look.michael oconnor stylelab's SAG Awards Jewelry Lounge
Celebrity Stylist Michael O’Connor, who can be found utilizing his extensive knowledge of jewelry and fashion to help celebrities select the perfect jewelry pieces for all of the red carpet events through the StyleLab Jewelry Lounge, is a proponent of men adding a little bling with accessories like lapel pins, cuff links, and watches to make them stand out in the crowd.

In this selection from StyleLab, there are colorful jeweled pieces like the bold blue cuff links, Art Deco pieces like the diamond encrusted rectangle lapel pin, or sleek two-tone gold watches from which to choose. You can even see Michael practicing what he preaches, wearing a whimsical grey pearl and diamond spider brooch, as he greets his celebrity clients in LA.

Taking a look at these men’s accessories on the red carpet scene, we have American actor Adrien Brody, who is sporting the Octo Watch by BVLGARI. It has a great geometric look with the octagonal-shaped watch casing in vibrant gold and matching number markers that jump out, in contrast to the black face. The croco-embossed black leather band just adds to its sexiness.

However, if you are more of a minimalist when it comes to jewelry accessories, then you may want to take a cue from Irish actor Colin Farrell, who in the past made a pair of simple white gold hoops the perfect edgy addition to his suit. Gotta keep that tie tightened up though, buddy!

Statement Time with 7 Charming Sisters’ White Hot Necklace

When you’re bundled up to your eyeballs and the temperature is somewhere below freezing, it’s hard to stand out. We hear ya! Sure you could run around in stilettos with bare legs and look fabulous while catching pneumonia or hypothermia… or both. But, if you’re anything like us, freezing your tuchas off does not make for a great Saturday night out.

7 Charming Sisters White Hot Necklace sm

While we have no influence over the temperature outside, we do have some great tips for staying warm and still making a major statement. How, you ask? With some (ever so appropriately named) statement jewelry. A few precious baubles can turn a cold weather outfit from ho-hum to yum! To help you up your style game we turned to 7 Charming Sisters for the latest in bold necklaces.

Start with a button down shirt and great piece like 7 Charming Sisters’ White Hot Necklace. In the spring or fall leave a few buttons open and let the rhinestones peek out. However, in the winter button the shirt and add the necklace on top.  When it’s really cold, add a sweater for added warmth and major style!

Or jazz up a turtleneck with a little bling.  A statement piece is a great way to enhance a boring turtle neck turning this day staple into something worthy of major style envy. A cozy sweater dress is another great canvas to highlight a few select gems. A comfortable knit will help minimize the chill and a little sparkle will make you party ready, any time.

To get the White Hot Necklace or any of their other statement pieces check out 7 Charming Sisters.
