Statement necklaces: Why we love them
Here’s one of the main reasons statement necklaces are such a powerful accessory: They look great on anyone. However, not only does the necklace look great – it can flatter the woman wearing it as well. Statement necklaces draw onlookers’ eyes up toward a woman’s neckline and shoulders. This does a couple of flattering things. For one, it highlights a typically thin and feminine area on a woman’s body. It also creates the illusion of a longer and taller frame, which can make the woman wearing it appear slimmer overall. So, besides simply jazzing up an outfit, they have a practical application as well. If that sounds like something you’d like to try, continue reading for a few tips on how to wear this statement accessory.
Look to the neckline
Understanding which necklace will go best with your outfit is largely about what type of dress or top you’re wearing. High necklines, like crew or boat necks, can be paired with pretty much any style of necklace, including a statement bib necklace, a tiered shape or a long and thin necklace. For lower necklines, as a general rule of thumb, find necklaces in a similar shape to the neck of your blouse or dress for an overall cohesive aesthetic (i.e., a round necklace with a scoop neckline or a tiered structure for a V-shaped neckline).
Work with your bust
Women with larger busts can sometimes have a harder time finding statement necklaces than others. Statement necklaces often dangle over the bust line and can even get stuck between cleavage. For this reason, women with large busts should look for slightly shorter styles that still make a statement, like bibs or anything else that lays nicely on the area just above the breasts.
Consider your proportions
Proportions are key when deciding which necklace to wear with your outfit because if a necklace is too large or small, it could look a little odd. When wearing something particularly flowy, long or large, such as a maxi dress or a long tunic, opt for a necklace that’s a bit longer and larger. If you’re wearing clothes that are a bit more fitted, choose a necklace that’s smaller and shorter.
Use bold colors
Don’t forget: Statement necklaces are all about making – you guessed it – a statement. So, don’t be afraid to experiment with vibrant colors and fun designs. These bold accessories draw attention in a fun way, and can be paired with almost any outfit to add some extra pizzazz.
