There are plenty of excuses to be a princess for a day, and only one of them involves Prince Charming. Long gone are the days when costume jewellery was still only affordable by those with a monthly wage packet that matches the price of a small yacht; and because of that, every day is a dressing up day. From tiaras to toe-rings, a girl can deck herself out like the Christmas lights along Oxford Street if she so chooses with a vast array of jewels that look almost as good as the real thing. Thanks to celebrity styles in magazines such as Heat and Hello, the demand for affordable jewellery has boosted supply and bought us girlies some amazing items that would be the envy of Elizabeth Taylor. If you want to make the most of dressing to the nines then you need just three things. A reason, an outfit and the jewellery to match; here are my favourite excuses for princessing it up in a tiara and getting away with it!
Fancy Dress Party
Well, the reason here is simple, it’s a party and it is time to dress up! There are so many outfits that a tiara can look good with, and in the world of fancy dress, tiaras can be made of feathers and foil, costing a fraction of the price of even the cheapest of crystal adornments. There are plenty of ‘made to match the outfit’ ones on offer in fancy dress shops, so you will find that whether you are dressed as a naughty nun, a Disney princess or even the statue of liberty, there is an assortment of suitable head jewellery to make sure you look the part!
Wearing an expensive gown and a corsage is a rite of passage in any young girl’s life, whether it be for the end-of-year university ball, a high school prom, or a charity ball that has been arranged by friends. The grandeur of the event calls for high quality jewellery with understated style. This is when a simple chunky jewel necklace can be twinned with a delicate tiara with matching stones. Choose a crystal that is a good contrast with the ball gown, for example if you are wearing a red dress, choose amber jewellery; if you are wearing black, go for ruby coloured stones. Never ever choose to wear a tiara that overly flamboyant or you will end up looking like you got lost on the way to the aforementioned fancy dress party dressed as the Queen of England.
This is one reason any lady can legitimately wear princess jewellery with a princess dress and totally get away with it. No matter how flamboyant the dress, or the jewels, the bride and bridesmaids are guaranteed to look like the belles of the ball that they are. With everyone wearing tailored fabrics that fit a theme, diamonds match pearls and tiaras complement top hats. If you doubt that this is true, take a look at some of the celebrity wedding publicity shots. If Posh and Becks can get away with thrones and tiaras, and Jordan and Peter can pull off looking like they just stepped out of Disney Land, then the bride-to-be can surely sport a decadent tiara without embarrassment!
