Here are a couple things to consider when wearing statement jewelry! Do you have any tips to share?
Keep the focus on either a statement necklace or earrings:
Whether it’s a swinging pair of chandelier earrings or a giant pendant, making a bold statement is a seriously on-trend way of offsetting your outfit either day or night. To strike the right balance, let one piece do the talking though by keeping everything else minimal.
Think: Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany’s – her showstopping giant pearl choker was offset by dainty studs. Sarah Jessica Parker rocked a bib-like pearl choker perfectly with tiny drop earrings at the NYC Ballet Gala last week.
Statement Rings or Stacked Bangles:
Similarly, if you have a gobstopper of a cocktail ring then be sure to work with a discreet bangle and keep the rest of your hands clutter-free. Alternatively, stacked up cuffs and bracelets are big news for Fall but if you indulge in the trend don’t let them compete with fussy finger adornments.
Keep your outfit balanced:
The same rules apply to clothing and grooming as well, keep colors solid or neutral if wearing a statement necklace or pendant and hair up and away from the neck to let your earrings take all the glory. AnnaLynne McCord got it right at Lloyd Klein’s catwalk show with a pair of big dangling baubles and slicked a slicked back pony tail.
A gigantic brooch is a fantastic way to crown an outfit whether on a lapel or scarf but be sure other jewelry doesn’t steal its thunder. Above all, be bold, be brave and have fun!
