A statement necklace can make an entire outfit. Picking your other accessories to go with a statement necklace can be a challenge. I usually have 3 different ways I do this:
- Simple outfit, with just a statement necklace- I love doing a simple outfit, usually with layers that I add a big statement necklace to. It is a great way to wear a statement necklace without being to overdone. I love the way this looks. A great statement necklace can make a regular sweater and pants look very put together. All of the other jewelry I wear with this kind of outfit is simple. It is all about the necklace so I tone down the earrings, watch and bracelets to blend in with the rest of what I am wearing.
- Statement necklace is part of the outfit- What exactly do I mean by this? Sometimes you can have so much going on in an outfit (patterns, colors, fabrics) that a statement necklace pulls it all together. I especially love to do this with different types of fabric that contrast with the necklace. I usually stick with simple earrings (studs) and go all out with the watches and bracelets with this kind of combination.
- Coordinate all of accessories & necklace- This is a really fun way to incorporate a lot of jewelry into one outfit. Sometimes when I am wearing a lot of one color, I will pick either a similar color or a contrasting color of jewelry and wear every piece in that color. I usually don’t try for the same shade just to mix things up as well. This is when I pull out the bigger and brighter bracelets and earrings to make the entire outfit pop.
As always, thanks for reading! I am still in Europe on business but I will be back in town this weekend. This has been a fast trip so I will be ready for lots of sleep!
