chloe & isabel statement necklace

Today's post is all about jewelry. Statement jewelry can be such a great way to dress up a basic outfit, but it can be tricky to know what styles of jewelry to pair with different types of outfits. Today I'm breaking it all down for you...


Statement Necklaces:

Pair a statement necklace with a crew neck tee shirt. The more simple the outfit, the better in this case to really let your necklace stand out.

Pair a longer statement necklace or pendant necklace with a turtleneck top/sweater for an elevated look. The longer length won't interfere with the neckline of your top.

Opt for an extra bold statement necklace when pairing it with a button down shirt. It makes a typically masculine shirt style look girly & fancy. Try buttoning the blouse all the way up to the collar so that the necklace peeks out & lays flat underneath.

Style tip: When wearing a statement necklace, always opt for delicate earrings. The two will overpower each other if worn at the same time! Another option - go without earrings altogether!






Choker Necklaces:

Off the shoulder styles are the perfect match for choker necklaces. They allow you to add a fun accessory to your look while continuing to show off the unique neckline of your top or dress.

Scoop neck styles go great with the trendy wrap choker styles. The styles of each piece highlights the other perfectly; it's like they were made for each other!





Layering Necklaces:

When layering dainty styles, pair two together for a trendy twist on an everyday look. I always try to layer two dainty pieces in different shapes; for example, a bar necklace with a single stone or lariat necklace. 

Styling bold necklaces together is very similar to styling dainty styles, except everything is larger! Continue to keep in mind the lengths & shapes of each piece. When pairing more than one statement necklace, be sure to keep the rest of your outfit simple.  A striped tee allowed my necklaces to be the showcase of this outfit. 

Bracelets:

For a bold bracelet look, pair lots of colored, beaded bracelets together. Layer them up your arm & don't be afraid to mix metals & textures too! This style is the epitome of 'go big or go home.'

For a more every day minimalist look, opt for only a couple of bracelets that nicely compliment each other. Think same metal, texture or designer.



Statement Earrings: 

Pair your statement dangling earrings with an off the shoulder style. The open neckline will really show off your statement earrings. Don't forget to pull your hair back too!

Choose complementary colors. Like with lipstick & beauty products, certain shades look better with certain coloring. With your earrings so close to your face & hair, it's important to think about what shades look good on you & opt for earrings in those colors! Shades that looks good on everyone? Neutrals & metallics!
