Picking the Perfect Accessories for Every Outfit

Picking the Perfect Accessories for Every Outfit

Accessories can make or break an outfit. If you are looking to enhance your clothing, you have to know how to accessorize it with the right kind of jewelry. Keep reading for some tips on choosing accessories to go with every outfit.

Complementing Your Outfit with Color

Buy a few colorful pieces of jewelry that you can use to complement the hues in your outfit. Colorful jewelry helps you make a statement with a wardrobe and it can take a completely average black, white, grey, or camel outfit to a whole other level of style. Accessorizing with complementary colors helps you get the most out of the items in your closet.

Deciding Between Simple and Statement Pieces

You can play up the features of your outfit with certain pieces of jewelry. You should use your accessories to balance out your outfit.  Choose simple accessories if you are wearing clothing with patterns, ruffles, sequins, or other embellishments. If your clothing is more on the simple side, you can wear statement jewelry that adds some excitement to your look.

Picking the Amount of Jewelry You Wear

The amount of pieces you choose can change the look and feel of your outfit as well. If you are wearing a shirt with a lot of decals near the bust, you probably do not need to wear a necklace, but you can enhance it with earrings or bracelets. If you enhance a simple black dress with a statement necklace, though, you might want to downplay the rest of your jewelry to keep the focus on this larger piece.

Shop for accessories at Home Consignment Center to get an amazing array of jewelry styles at prices that fit nicely into your budget. When you buy jewelry from one of our Bay Area locations, you can find unique and stylish pieces that optimize your wardrobe. We also sell furniture to help you makeover your entire house.

Creative Ways to Store Jewelry at Home

Creative Ways to Store Jewelry at Home

Is your jewelry box getting a little too full? It’s easy to expand your jewelry collection when you shop at a consignment store. Since a consignment store can offer a selection ranging from everyday pieces to jewelry for special occasions, the only hard part of buying jewelry there is figuring out how to store it at home. If you’re running out of traditional ways to store your jewelry or you’re tired of everything getting tangled, use these tips for creative ways of storing your jewelry at home.

Shadow Boxes

When you’re in a rush to get ready for a date or a night out on the town, the last thing you want is to be fumbling through your jewelry box looking for your favorite necklace. Instead of using a jewelry box, hang a shadow box with hooks on your wall. Your necklaces will hang, making sure the chains stay untangled, and you’ll be able to see all of your options in front of you.

Chains

There are few things more frustrating than rooting through your jewelry box trying to find one missing earring. An easy fix for this is to hang a chain horizontally on your wall. That way, you can hang all of your pairs of earrings right next to each other, and you’ll be less likely to lose single earrings.

Jewelry Trees

If you are an appreciator of nature, you’ll love this idea for jewelry storage. Find a branch outside with a few arms and place it in a colorful vase on your dresser. You can hang necklaces and bracelets off of the arms, and even use it to store rings if the branches are narrow enough. This fun idea brings a little natural beauty into your daily routine.

Book Boxes

If you prefer having jewelry boxes but are tired of boring designs, you can get creative with them. Hollow out old or unwanted hardcover books and use the empty space to hold your jewelry. You can have different book boxes for earrings, rings, bracelets, and more.

You’ll be glad to have all of these jewelry storage options after a shopping trip to Home Consignment Center. Come in to one of our two Austin locations to find one-of-a-kind jewelry, accessories, and pieces for your home. Give us a call at (925) 309-7231 to learn more about buying from a consignment store.

Home Consignment Center – How to Buy Pearls

How to Buy Pearls

Quality jewelry can be used for a variety of occasions and remains a part of your personal collection for many years. If you want to buy a classic piece that enhances every facet of your wardrobe, pearl jewelry is a great option. Keep reading for some tips on buying pearls.

Pay attention to the luster of the pearl. Quality pearls are those that seem to have an inherent shine that originates from somewhere within. If you are buying earrings or a ring, you should look for pieces with smaller pearls. If you want a necklace, however, larger pearls are a better and more aesthetically appealing option. Choose a style that complements the other pieces in your wardrobe so you can create a wide array of new outfits that work well together.

Come to Home Consignment Center to shop for pearls and other great pieces of jewelry. We offer an amazing selection of jewelry and furniture at hard-to-beat prices so you can always find the items you need. Call (818) 880-8331 to learn more about our jewelry and furniture selection in Calabasas.
