Fashion Tip: Statement Necklaces


Chunky statement necklaces are trending in a big way and there is no limit in the styles and material they are made of. From multi strand pearls to beads, bib style, metal with feather and flower details to shells, the list is endless.

If you are looking to stay trendy, then it’s time to ditch the small delicate neck pieces and go statement. The necklaces can spice up any outfit, from simple T-shirt top, to a dress and everything in between. The bolder and funkier the better so do not be afraid to go overboard as the chunky statement necklace can easily transform a plain look into a fabulous one. The necklaces are a tribute to the variety of jewellery colour and material.

Long or short, it is fashionable to make the necklace a focal point of your outfit. Be it formal or casual, you can get a statement necklace to accessorise. However like in all fashion, you can make the most of this trend and look good or just end up drowning the rest of your outfit. It helps to remember that even when you aim at making a fashion statement, you can make a wrong one.

Here are a few tips on wearing the statement necklace.

With a chunky necklace, you may need to tone down on other jewellery like earrings, maybe the handbag, to avoid too much clutter. Also, make sure it’s either a sharp clean collar or open neck. There should not be too much detail on the clothes you are wearing around the neck.

Match chunky colourful pieces with solid colour and vice versa. That way, your necklace stands out. Do not be afraid to contrast, anything to make the necklace come out bold.

When it is an open neck or strapless top, you can test the boundaries, go as detailed and funky as possible. When it is a collar or high neck top, wear something less distracting like a bold gold, silver or single colour bead necklace.
