If you're ready to flaunt some jade jewelry, your baubles likely display a milky to vibrant green hue. However, other common forms of jade appear as a muted lavender tone or a translucent, barely-there hue. Opt for neutral dresses when you're looking for a foolproof method of showcasing any shade of jade. Then again, when you're in the mood to make that jewelry really pop, go for a dress in a complementary shade and all eyes will be on you -- and your jade jewelry, of course.
Black and White
No matter which color of jade you're planning on wearing, pairing it with a neutral, black-and-white dress makes your accessorizing totally error-proof. Visualize yourself in a dress with a white chiffon sleeveless top with a ruffled stand-collar, and a black fitted skirt that falls to your knees. Pop your feet into black pumps and get ready for jewelry. Pull on a chunky lavender-hued jade necklace -- it's sure to turn heads.
When you're decked out in a super-busy print, adding a hint of color with jewelry strikes a balance between your frock and your jewels. Imagine you're donning a floor-length gown in dark brown with an all-over powder-blue and emerald-green vintage print. Slide your feet into dark brown high-heel sandals. Rather than wearing emeralds, pull on a pair of dangling green jade earrings -- going for a shade of a color rather than matching it exactly is super chic.
Wear a vibrant green dress -- the color of bold green jade -- but mix things up a bit. Rather than pulling on the expected green cuff, go for translucent jade instead for a unique look. Envision yourself in a green jade-hued, strapless mini-dress with a sweetheart neckline. Step into nude pumps to keep the attention on your dress and jewelry. Slide a translucent almost-white cuff onto your arm and enjoy your playful ensemble.
When you're dying for everyone to notice your green jade jewelry, your best bet is to go with that color's complement. Across from green on the color wheel is red, which means it enhances green, making it pop. Pull on a neon red sheath dress with a round neckline, bracelet sleeves and a length that falls to your knees. Step into a pair of strappy bronze high-heel sandals. As for your jewels, put on a pair of vivid green jade button earrings and a matching statement ring. Pull your hair back for this look -- it's sure to stun.
