#1 Wear pieces that compliment your outfit
A unique piece of statement jewelry can work for you if it complements your outfit. Overcrowd your outfit with distracting statement pieces, and you’ll get people looking at you in dismay. Remember that statement pieces are meant to (you guessed it) make a statement. So, think about your outfit as a cohesive ensemble that complements each other.
Gold. gemstone jewelry and diamond jewelry work well with neutral and formal outfits, whereas floral pieces will look gorgeous with a romantic and feminine outfit. Remember that it’s all about keeping a balance.
#2 Allow your statement piece to shine
If you’re planning on wearing that favorite piece of gemstone necklace, keep in mind that “less is more”. Keep your dress or outfit simple, so that your statement piece takes center stage.
Big accessories are best worn with simple clothes. Avoid big floral prints and bold embroidery such as sequins when wearing bold jewelry. Keep in mind, your statement jewelry should be allowed to stand out. So pick your items carefully.
Think of your clothes as the backdrop to the main event: the bold piece of statement jewelry you’re wearing. Provide the best conditions for your attention-grabbing accessory by creating complementary combinations. A little black dress is your perfect backdrop for bold statement necklaces, bracelets or rings to shine.
If you’re already wearing a bold red dress, then it’s not tasteful to wear a heavily designed statement piece to go with it.
By doing so, you’re pulling attention away from your statement jewelry. However, you can always matchless busy pieces with patterned items of clothing. Complementing your statement jewelry with smaller accessories tastefully by keeping it to a minimum is also a great way to help you strut your stuff confidently.
The key here is to keep your clothes as an understatement to allow the statement jewelry to do what it does best: speak volumes without introduction. Choose one thing to accentuate and keep your head high.You’ll look elegant, luxurious and even out of this world!
#3 Choose your earrings wisely
Picking the right earrings for your outfit is not as difficult as you think. It’s all about understanding proportion and some basic knowledge of colors.
If you’re wearing a statement necklace, then it’s not advisable to wear big statement earrings to go with it. Either you flaunt the statement earrings, or you rock the diamond necklace.
When choosing statement earrings for your ears, it’s important to consider whether they frame your face and enhance your features.
Statement earrings are beautiful, unique and highly ornate so they can’t be missed. When choosing statement earrings, opt for gemstone or diamond earrings to go with your little black dress or evening gown, and you’ll instantly upgrade to goddess-esque elegance.
Take details such as the length, color and design of the earrings into consideration if you’re thinking of making the earrings as the main focal point. When you wear big statement earrings, you can also allow them to pop by opting for sleeker, simpler hair dos.
Remember to keep a balance, so while you can have big hair with dainty earrings, it’s important to keep your hair sleek, poker-straight or loosely wavy with big statement earrings.
#4 Have fun with bracelets and bangles
While statement necklaces and earrings are common choices of statement pieces, some women steer clear of wearing bracelets and cuffs as they worry it might make their arms look big. It’s possible to have fun with statement bracelets with these easy tips!
You can adorn your arm tastefully with cuff bracelets. Wear a neutral colored long sleeve top with an attention-grabbing cuff. Show off your cuff by keeping it as the main focal point. Remember, less is more.
Fashion bangles are also a great option as a statement piece. Have fun stacking a number of bangles together, but remember to stick to one arm only. As a good rule of thumb, keep to a maximum of six bangles at a time.
Pay attention to colors, patterns and style when it comes to stacking bangles. Complement the bangles with similar color and pattern, but add a little something extra by throwing in some gold and silver. If you’re wearing stacks of bracelets, try to avoid wearing big and distracting rings.
#5 Pick the right necklace for your neckline
The best way to allow your statement necklace to do all the talking is by wearing it with the right neckline. Strapless, off-the shoulder, scoop necked or v-necked dresses and tops are ideal, as it allows your statement piece to shine.
Avoid clashing with your bold pieces by wearing halter necks, collars and detailing. A one-colour turtle-neck sweater can look great with a statement necklace, provided that it is form-fitting and one colour throughout.
When it doubt, choose neutral colored clothing for a chic yet elegant look.
Make sure to wear your statement necklace with a simple or a one-colored top to do your necklace justice.
Keep these tips in mind when choosing your statement pieces, and you’ll be looking gorgeous and confident in no time!
