5 Rules for wearing statement jewellery
Statement jewellery can really make that outfit pop and enhance your best features, a striking piece of statement jewellery can really complete an outfit for very little cost and make your outfit go from girl in the corner to girl on the cat walk.
1: Keep it simple.
Large statement pieces are best worn with a simple outfit, so that you don't have too much going on. Try to stay away from sequins, embellished clothing and busy patterns whilst wearing striking jewellery. You want the jewels to make the statement, so make sure that they stand out.
2: Choose a necklace that suits the neckline.
We always find the best way to wear a statement necklace is with a carefully chosen neckline. Off the shoulder, strapless, and v-necked tops are perfect, they will make your statement piece really make the outfit and become noticeable.
A turtle neck can be worn with a statement necklace too, but make sure its fitted and is only one colour. Try and steer clear of collars and halter necks, as they can make it all look too busy.
3: Don't forget to love your hands
Wearing any statement piece draws attention, and a statement ring is no different. Make sure those nails are in tip top condition and that the colours match the ring. A pretty good excuse for a manicure if you ask us. Statement rings are always a great piece to wear and enjoy, and we think the bigger the better, but don't go for more than one.
4:Wear pieces that will make an outfit.
Remember, when you wear your statement jewels you want to do just that, make a statement. You want to choose pieces that will help to create an outfit, not over power one. Vintage and floral jewellery always create a feminine look whilst a a bold large statement necklace with create a striking outfit with that LBD. Again keep it simple, don't wear competing items, you want your statement jewels to make the statement.
5: Statement Jewels first, make up second.
If you're wearing striking statement jewels, make sure you choose the jewels first and then apply the make up second, especially with glam earrings and necklaces - pieces that will be close to your face. Make sure it matches and usually that means going for the simpler look, steering away from the glittery make up.
