How and What to Wear With a Statement Necklace

Posted on

Statement necklaces have been around for awhile now and they don't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. They are very fashionable and can be worn to glam up just about any outfit. However, there are some rules when wearing a statement necklace. See below for some of these rules as well as helpful tips and ideas on how to wear your statement necklace.

What to Wear a Statement Necklace With

1. Plain T-Shirt

Wearing a plain t-shirt with a statement necklace may not sound right to you, but it really is a great look. Wear it with a higher neckline necklace, such as a choker-style rather than a bib necklace. Keep the rest of your jewelry and accessories toned down. For instance, you could wear stud earrings, a simple bracelet and a watch. 

2. V-Necklines

V-necklines are a great style to pair with a statement necklace. Wear a bib-style necklace with this neckline. It helps to fill in the blank space that a v-neckline gives you. Match a single color necklace to a colorful outfit, or use a multi-colored necklace to match with a more plain single-colored outfit.

3. Stripes

If you think you can't wear a statement necklace with stripes, think again. Stripes pair well with a statement necklace because of the simple and uniform pattern. Go with a crystal and rhinestone necklace with your stripes to give it a bold look while still being eye-pleasing.

Statement Necklace Rules

  • Less is More. You can add more than one statement necklace for a chunkier look; however, don't pair more than one chunky accessory with a statement necklace. This means no chunky earrings or super sized purse. Keep all of your other accessories simple.
  • Hair Up or Down. If you are wearing a statement necklace to give some pop to a plain tee, wear your hair down. If you are wearing a statement necklace with a dress on a date or to work, wear your hair up for a more sophisticated look. 
  • Avoid Covering Up Details. If your dress or top has a lot of detail at the top such as lace inlays or jewels, don't add a statement necklace that will cover up those beautiful details. Opt for longer statement earrings instead.

Statement necklaces are beautiful and trendy, and they come in multiple styles and colors. You are sure to find a necklace to match just about any outfit you have in your closet. Watch how you wear them and what accessories you pair with them. But, don't be afraid to go out and make a statement.
