Statement necklaces can be the perfect way to make your outfit extra special for a party or to just look a bit more glamorous in your day to day life. However, since these necklaces are quite big, it can be difficult to find the right way to wear them. Therefore, here are our dos and don’ts for wearing statement necklaces the right way:
Do combine with simple outfits
Statement necklaces will work best with simple outfits. Think about your little black dress or a plain t-shirt with jeans. You will want your necklace to catch the attention and that won’t happen if you’re not wearing a simple outfit.
Don’t combine with busy prints
If the prints of your outfit are very busy already, a statement necklace will probably make it too much. With simple prints like stripes or dots, it can still be a great addition to your outfit but with any other prints, it can quickly become too much. Also, keep it all within the same color palette, so make sure you’re statement necklace isn’t a completely different color than the rest of your outfit.
Do combine with simple other accessories
If you’re wearing a statement necklace, you will want to keep your accessories very minimalistic. Think about little ear studs or a very basic watch/bracelet.
Don’t overdo it
Related to that, don’t overdo it with other items! Don’t wear the statement necklace and big earrings and eye-catching bracelets and a ring with huge stones on it. It can quickly become too much and by wearing too many statement accessories you will make it way too overcrowded. Also, your statement necklace won’t get the attention it deserves if you are wearing too many other items.
Do make it your own
If you’re not comfortable wearing a statement necklace, give your own twist to your outfit. Don’t just wear a statement necklace because it is stylish, if you’re not comfortable it won’t look as good as you would want to.
Don’t throw out your other necklaces
No matter how much you love statement necklaces and how stylish they are, don’t throw out your other necklaces. You will want to be able to change up your look too and not every outfit works well with a statement necklace. Therefore, keep your other necklaces as well!
