How to Wear a Statement Necklace
| April 28, 2016, 03:47:17 PM

One of favorite fashion trends right now is the big, bold statement necklace. The fact that one piece of jewelry could alter your entire look is pretty cool. The power of the necklace is strong! Most statement necklaces – sometimes called “bib necklaces” – can be found in the fashion jewelry section of clothing stores or department stores and average around $20-$30. But, as with all great trends, there are rules to sporting the statement necklace. Here are some tips on how to rock the look like a pro.

Step 1: Wear Your Hair Up

The point of a statement necklace is just that: To make a statement. Jewelry like this is meant to be noticed, so it's best to wear your hair back in a sleek pony, updo or bun so that your necklace can take the spotlight. No sense in wearing something so fabulous if it's just going to be covered up by heaps of hair.

Step 2: Wear a Simple Top or Dress

The point of this tip is, again, to let your statement necklace shine. For optimal effect, pair your statement necklace with a simple, solid top that doesn't distract from the jewelry. Make sure the neckline is nice and simple as well, without extra fabric or ruffles up top. If the necklace is a bit less busy, it's perfectly fine to go with a print.

Step 3: Don't Overload On Other Jewelry

If you're going to wear a statement necklace, don't overdo it on other jewelry like earrings, rings and bracelets. The best bet is to wear small stud earrings or no earrings at all, so the necklace has no competition. As for bracelets and cocktail rings, keep those minimal as well, maybe one or the other, if any. Let the necklace speak for itself.
