How to Wear A Statement Necklace

It took me a while to really get into this trend, but statement necklaces are one of my new obsessions.

There are so many different options out there, and wearing a bold piece of jewelry can really add some punch to any outfit. 

However, there are some rules that come along with wearing these fab necklaces:

Wear your hair up so it doesn't compete with your statement necklace. After all, you want the piece to shine. Of course, it’s no sin to wear your hair down with a bold necklace, but I love letting the bauble take center stage.

Wear a statement necklace with loads of other accessories. It should be the only piece of jewelry you have on. Keep everything else very minimal.

Wear over-the-top brights. Turquoise blue is hugely popular right now, but any bold hue will do. Don’t be afraid to pair bright colors with other bright colors to make your outfit really pop.

Go overboard. A statement necklace can get totally lost among the folds of a fancy dress. It's also an issue if you wear other giant jewelry or or a dress with a crazy pattern. Let your bold necklace shine and you’ll make the biggest statement of all.

Pictured above are my fave statement necklaces of the moment. Here's where you can buy them, from left to right:
Forever 21 Regal Bib Necklace, $12.80
Banana Republic Petite Floral Necklace, $59.50
J. Crew Stone Burst Pearl Necklace, $125.00

Happy Shopping!

Glad to see that they are getting smaller.....does make them a bit more appealing to me. However, and it is probably a personal issue, but, I find if I wear these, it just seems to stiffen neck and give headache! I have tried.....but always go back to dainty little chain w/small pearl or diamond. I feel so alone and left out......but classy non the less!
