Amethyst Rings – How to Find the Most Flattering for Your Finger

There is a lot to love about amethyst rings, but like any type of jewelry you will have a lot of different options to consider when choosing between the available products.

To help you on your way, here is a quick guide to finding an amethyst ring that will suit you down to the ground.

Stone size & shape matter

One of the best things about amethysts in general is that they are typically a beautiful deep purple in color and so will match the majority of people’s skin tones. However, this means that the major consideration should be the size of the stone itself; go too big and it will look cumbersome, while too small a stone will leave your finger looking a bit bare and barren.

Finger length and overall hand size will be key to your decision-making at this point. If you have compact hands and slender fingers, a smaller stone will be fitting and will enhance your natural attributes without overwhelming them. In terms of stone shape, those with daintier digits should opt for oval or pear-shaped amethysts set in rings, since these will give the impression that your fingers are a little longer.

Of course you also need to think about your usual nail length, as this will also impact the look of your hands and determine which ring is right for you. For example, even if you have fingers that are on the shorter end of the scale, they may appear longer if you wear longer nails on a daily basis.

Band thickness is significant

The size and shape of the amethyst is certainly going to take the lion’s share of your attention when choosing rings, but the band itself will also have a part to play.

Those with larger hands and longer fingers can opt for thicker, chunkier bands overall, since they will not look out of place in this context. Meanwhile if you have more petite mitts then a slender band will potentially be a better option. Of course if your fingers are slender without being especially short, a thick band can also make sense, and you may need to experiment a little with different thicknesses to get the right size for you.

Mounting material

By far and away the most popular metals used in the production of amethyst rings are silver and white gold, and for good reason. They really help to offset the dazzling purples that reflect and refract from the gemstone, meaning that unless you are feeling a particular urge to stand out from the crowd, a silver-colored amethyst ring is definitely the way to go.

That is not to say that you cannot find gold amethyst rings; if this floats your boat then do give it a try, especially if the rest of your style is more closely oriented around this type of jewelry.

If you are still uncertain which is the right amethyst ring for you, keep an eye on the variety of options available from top designers and get expert advice before you commit to a purchase.

 

How To Look Flawless When Wearing A Body Suit

How To Look Flawless When Wearing A Body Suit

For ages, bodysuits have been worn by women. However, the bodysuit outfit, which is endorsed by the Kardashian sisters, has now become mainstream.

Bodysuits are versatile and comfortable to wear. You can wear them with high-waisted jeans, skirts, or layer them with formal pantsuits. Bodysuits are designed to flatter your curves and provide a seamless tuck to your pants or skirts. Bodysuits also work well for all body types and can be worn with formal as well as casual outfits.

Here are some tips to look flawless when wearing a bodysuit:

Choose Your Underwear Correctly

Wearing formfitting clothes can look ultra-glam and chic. It’s also a great way to flatter your body’s curves. However, your choice of underwear can make or break your look.

A well-fitted, seamless knix will make your back look sleek and help you avoid panty lines. Since panty lines can disrupt the seamless look of your form-fitting trousers or skirt, make sure to choose the right underwear, like thongs or seamless panties, when you wear a body suit.

Make Sure That It Fits Well

To get a flawless look when wearing a bodysuit, make sure that your bodysuit fits you perfectly.

While buying, it’s essential to check the length of the bodysuit. A bodysuit that’s too short for you can be uncomfortable. On the other hand, something that’s big for you can make your entire look shabby. To ensure that you pick the right size, try it on before buying. A well-fitted bodysuit should be comfortable when you sit down, too.

The bustline of your body should be snug-fitting and not look stretched over. Finally, make sure to check the back. A bodysuit that’s too tight for you can cause a visible panty line, which can spoil your entire look.

Style Them with Casuals

Bodysuits can be styled easily with jeans and skirts. Pairing a pair of skinny jeans or high-waisted jeans with a snug bodysuit has been a popular trend once it was endorsed by celebrities, like Kylie Jenner, for a while.

Wearing them with a pair of high-waisted jeans can help you create a neat look without too much tucking to do. To wear a bodysuit with a pair of skinny jeans, choose something that has a delicate, lace neckline that can serve as a top.

Creating a balanced look while wearing a skirt can be tough. For styling your skirt that goes with its high-waist, you have to find a crop top or something that’s tucked in, which may not always work well. However, pairing a skirt with a bodysuit is easy since the bodysuit is seamlessly tucked–a higher waist skirt fits perfectly with the overall look.

Style Them With Formals 

For a sleek, stylish look, pair your bodysuit with your work outfits. From using your bodysuit for a layered pant-suit look or wearing it with a sleek pencil skirt, bodysuits can be styled in several ways to create a formal, work mode look.  For a smart formal look, pair your bodysuit with a sleek blazer and formfitting trousers.

During colder months, style your work look by layering your bodysuit with elegant coats or jackets and trousers.

Wear It As Lingerie

Wearing lingerie as an outerwear has been a trend for a while now. However, delicate lace bodysuits are perfect to wear as lingerie under low cut tops, plunging neckline, and off slouchy sweaters.

Bodysuits can also be worn as lingerie under sheer gowns and tops. To spruce up your plain shirt and jeans look, wear a delicate, lace bodysuit under a half-unbuttoned shirt.

Conclusion

Bodysuits are a trend that’s here to stay for a while. Other than being comfortable and versatile, a bodysuit can flatter your curves, define your body’s shape, and make your body look firm. However, before you buy a bodysuit, make sure to check if it’s the right size, material, and fits you perfectly. This is because an ill-fitted bodysuit can break your entire look.

Due to their versatility, you can pair them with skinny jeans or boyfriend jeans for a casual look. For a formal look, you can also layer them under a pantsuit. For a chic-elegant look, bodysuits are ideal for pairing them with skirts. You can also wear them as lingerie under sheer tops. Wearing them under plunging necklines can create a stylish look, too. Finally, there are several ways you can style your bodysuit for a flawless, trendy look.

This stylish piece of clothing is something that can be worn in all seasons and can be styled perfectly as an elegant outerwear. It’ll also remain a timeless piece of lingerie.
