We’re all for the saying that “shoes elevate an outfit” and “bags are a trusted friend” but a statement necklace is that friend you can take anyw. and be sure you’ll have a good time. Whether it’s for a date night or your workwear, the right one will solidify your style star status. With the right statement necklace, you’ll be breaking necks everywere you go. Ouch!
Just like any other fashion item, you can either choose to rock yours in a low-key way or go all out with an over-the-top look. The key is dressing for w. you’re headed as you don’t want to make the wrong statement. For example, the necklace best suited for the office wouldn’t quite make the statement if worn to a party. In addition, you should also consider your outfit as the two must definitely go together. After all, the necklace should complement the outfit in order to create the perfect ensemble. Having said that, your personal preference also matters as you don’t want to be caught in something you don’t like all in the name of fashion.
Statement necklaces have taken an interesting turn in the past seasons. They have graduated from pieces that screemed costume-y to become more refined in design and craftsmanship. That is to say, in this curation, you’ll be seeing an intersting new take on statement necklace and this is much welcome. Honestly, I personally didn’t like the excessive customes they once were and I’mexcited for this refreshing change.
Check out 5 stylish ways to wear a statement necklace based on the setting…
#1. Party girl
Party time is always a fun time and a statement necklace is a good way to have some fun. (With your ensemble, at least). When choosing a piece, make it the star of your outfit. You have worn it for a reason, so let it work its magic. It’s important to, however, be careful not to wear your necklace with other chunky jewelry because t. would be so much going on. Two captains cannot sail this ship.
It’s convenient to think an office is a place for demure or classic looks. While this is true for most organizations, some others are more welcoming. If your organization falls into the latter category, then why not include a statement necklace in your next work-slay? A little bit of not-so-regular fashion never hurt anyone, so strut into work with that boss chic allure! It’ll have you looking stylishly put together. Keep in mind however that you shouldn’t opt for a piece that’s too attention-grabbing. You’re going to work after all.
Just like with your party looks, a date is another opportunity to have some fun with jewelry! However, t.’s a catch. While you can go crazy with a party statement necklace, you should go a tad softer when it comes to date night. This is because you don’t want to look as though you put in too much effort in order to impress him with your look. This is especially true in the case of a first date. The right necklace should strike a balance between crazy and effortless. However, if crazy is who you are, then go ahead and knowck yourself out like Marii below!
#4. Out and about
Some days you just want to dress down and a classic top X pants combo becomes your go-to. On days like these, statement necklaces come to the rescue as they can be the element that salvages your outfit from boring. The right piece in this instance will help you feel comfortable and you’ll still be on top of your style game. It switches up even the plainest of outfits. For that extra pop, don’t be afraid to throw in a bold color in your necklace.
#5. Formal event
Accessories have the power to change any outfit from casual to chic in an instant. Other than that, they can also take an already polished outfit a tad higher. This magic is all too recognizable at formal events. Think about this, what’s a red carpet show without a good dose of jewelry? Half-baked! T.’s no denying that accessories are a vital aspect of fashion so for your next formal event, put them to good use. Whether it’s a crystal necklace that mimics diamonds or a bold pearl option, your formal outfit isn’t really complete without one.
