You’ve seen them on celebrities, fashionistas and royalty and I’m sure you’ve adorned one too even though it may not be cut in an expensive stone. Cocktail rings are recognized by their unforgettable, dramatic large size. They come in a variety of colours and styles.
Since a cocktail ring is an eye-popping accessory, you can use it to make a great statement with your cocktail dress.
As with anything in fashion, there are rules to wearing cocktail rings!

* A Cocktail ring draws attention to the hand. So make sure your fingernails are polished and well groomed.

* Never wear more than one ring on each hand.

* Since the left index finger is reserved for the wedding band, it is typical to wear your cocktail ring on the right index finger. If you must wear it on the left, then do it on the middle finger.

* If you wish to wear a ring on your pointer finger, it should not be more than 6 carats.

* When wearing a cocktail ring, don’t crowd your attire with other jewellery. Less is more.



A great pair of peep toe heels is a powerful thing-it can change your mood, your posture and your attitude and turn a boring outfit into something remarkable. But there are rules.

* Get a pedicure

Don’t even imagine wearing a pair of peep toe shoes if your toe nails are not in good shape. Chipped toe nail polish and cracked heels are not acceptable.

* Show two cracks only

Toe cleavage does not get the attention it deserves but it matters . Show some toes but not more than two.

* Watch your proportions

Hardly anyone can pull of a short skirt with very high heels without looking a hooker. Ensure your hemline is not too far up your legs.

* Don’t go too high!

If shoes go beyond four inches, you will not be able to walk well. Also, your posture will shift and you will not have a good gait. No matter how good you are with heels, there is a point where it gets too high and struggling to walk correctly will make you look ridiculous.


The place of a belt cannot be over emphasized. They help hold a skirt or pair of trousers in place. For women, it’s a nice way to cinch the waistline.

* Match your belt with your shoes. Always ensure your belt matches your shoes. This is a good rule to follow and it keeps things simple. It’s best to stay with traditional colours such as black, dark brown or a rich tan.

* Don’t wear a belt and suspenders together, it’s one or the other.

*Avoid dress belts with jeans and sneakers

* A belt must be big enough to fill the loops of your pants but not overfill them.
