Style is always evolving. I used to stay away from anything too loud in color, pattern, or chunkiness. But times are changing and I’ve been branching out lately. Enter: the chunky necklace. This is the essence of a statement piece — highlighting your outfit in the most direct yet understated of ways.
1. Solid Colors – When choosing a large and colorful necklace, you always want to make sure that you are pairing it with solid color clothing. If you pair it with a patterned or busy top, it will take the attention away. Statement necklaces are meant to be the attention grabber and main focal point of your outfit.
2. Understated is key – Make sure to keep your other accessories, jewelry, hair, and make up subtle and minimal. You want your look to be elegant and poised, not over the top and busy. The best way to showcase a chunky necklace is to wear your hair up. Not only will this bring more attention to your neckline, but it will keep your hair from getting caught in your beautiful accessory piece!
3. Color Coordinate – Add a necklace to your outfit that coordinates with the colors you are already wearing. Complimenting colors will keep you from looking too plain, and make things a bit more fun and colorful!
4. Wear with Neutrals – When you add a colorful, chunky necklace to your otherwise neutral (tan, black, and/or white) outfit, it will for sure pull everything together and is a safe way to make sure your necklace is the stand out piece. Such a simple and casual outfit can be made to look dressed up with a simple statement necklace.
Long statement necklaces can be worn with plain tops to elongate the neck and can also be paired with a scarf
