How to : Statement Necklace

Wearing a "statement necklace" is tricky. You need to let the necklace be the center of attention in your outfit, so the necklace makes a "statement". Here are some things you should keep in mind when wanting to wear a statement necklace :

  • DO keep the crazy bold prints to a MINIMUM
  • If you are wearing a colored statement necklace, DO keep the rest of the outfit NEUTRAL or NOT TOO BRIGHT
  • DON'T accessorize like crazy if you are wearing a statement necklace
Just remember one thing, let your necklace be the main focus point of your outfit. 

Need some inspiration? Here's how I do the statement necklace trend...

Outfit #1 :

This outfit is pretty simple. I love the necklace and it definitely makes a statement. Pair it up with a nude colored top and black skinny jeans. The pumps are nude colored too, thus making sure that the turquoise necklace and ring give the outfit just the right "pop" of color. 

Also, try different shades of lipsticks with your outfits. (I have recently become OBSESSED with wearing lipstick!)

Outfit #2 :

This outfit is the perfect way to dress up a simple LBD. The necklace is made up of different pastel colors, so i decided to pair up this outfit with pastel yellow pumps (aren't they gorgeous!?). If you like wearing lipstick, I'd suggest wearing a pastel pink instead of a bright one... like this one right here!
