Statement necklaces have become a staple in my wardrobe, and I find it so exciting and pleasing to pick up a new piece of jewelry that I can coordinate with so many outfits. I have a few tips that I have picked up along the way which have made it a lot easier to look at a wall of necklaces and choose the best one (in my opinion…). If you’re wanting to find the best ones (in your opinion) you can have a look around at jewelry stores both offline and online, such as on sites like Owen & Robinson Jewellers for instance.
When I first started out as a blogger, I wrote a post on statement necklaces. However, I had just begun accessorizing with different types of pieces, and well, finding what I felt looked best. I wouldn’t say that my style has changed in the six months I have been blogging, but I have definitely found ways to make it easier for me when I go accessory shopping and I know what I am looking for!
The brighter the better! There is nothing better than a bright statement necklace to make your outfit pop! When I first began to accessorize with statement necklaces, I was a little shy with them – I bought softer colours that blended in and didn’t really stand out at all. They were more “complimentary” necklaces, than “statement” necklaces! However, as the spring season rolled in, I expanded with my bright taste and started to wear more colours that popped!!
Don’t shy away from those flashy pieces! Jewelry is not just for special occasions!! This is probably the most common misconception when it comes to accessorizing! Sure, you should accessorize when you are going somewhere fancy, or even going out for a night on the town. But who says you can’t wear a flashy piece while studying for finals at the library? Well, I say you can!! And should.
Change up the length! One of the common trends right now: big, bold, and short in length. While those are great and certainly make a statement, you also have to make sure you are switching it up and add a lengthy piece to your collection. I typically wear longer pieces when I am trying to create a taller look. Don’t get me wrong…I love the cute little neck length pieces, but you have to switch it up (you don’t want the same necklace in every look you style…). Keep it fresh with new pieces!!
Jewelry is a mysterious area of fashion and I’m sure everyone will have their own opinion on what looks good or what doesn’t look good or even what they feel comfortable wearing! The most important thing to take away from this post, is this: Where what you love. If you love a rainbow coloured, spiky piece…WEAR IT! Not everybody is going to love what you are wearing every single time, and I have definitely made some fashion forward moves that not everyone I know liked…but who cares when you feel beautiful in it?
Here are a few of my statement pieces that I have collected in the last year. I love them. I wear them. I am addicted to statement jewelry!!
