Statement necklaces and why I love them

 

Statement necklaces are nothing new. You can find them almost anywhere, and their popularity is on the rise... and I couldn't be happier! A great way to show your edgy personality while remaining classy. I'm not the kind of girl who wears lots of patterns... In fact, my wardrobe is almost exclusively composed of black. I love layering, mixing textures, but sometimes it lacks a bit of character... a punch. The statement necklace is my accessory of choice for these moments; it adds a little wow to your look. And if you're lacking inspiration for your outfit, no worries! Everyone's eyes will be drawn to the piece of art on your neck! That being said, let me share with you my three favorite styles as well as some tips to match them to your outfit.

 
   

My first category is necklaces that I like to call- Aztec inspiration, with silver chain(s) and turquoise stones. If you browse regularly on Pinterest or Polyvore, you've probably seen several ensembles featuring them, especially since last year where they have taken off in popularity. One way I love wearing statement necklaces and especially these are over a fully buttoned blouse. This is the style that I propose in the above pictures. Love this look... it rocks!

 
 
 

No need to have a special outing to wear a statement necklace. Here's my favorite casual look, for a quick run to the grocery store or a barbecue with your best buddy. It revisits the combo jeans / t-shirt by adding a touch of eccentricity/originality. If you're good with your hands, you can even let your creativity go wild and make your own necklace, like me in the picture on the right! Head to your favorite craft store and get a little crazy! Some felt, a needle and thread, a chain ... and a splash of imagination!

 
 
 

Finally, the last style that I propose is a little more dressed up. I love the simplicity of the right collar mixed with the originality of the layout of the two colors. You can also play it up with a necklace like the one on the left, with multiple levels and different types of pearls. With such a big style, if you have very long hair I recommend adopting an upstyle so your hair doesn't take away from the necklace. I also would opt for stud earrings rather than pendents. All eyes will be on you!

 

I I don't think there is any occasion where I wouldn't wear a statement necklace! They are my go-to to complete my outfits. They add originality and dynamism to your look... without effort. There are so many choices on the market that there is no doubt you will find the style that best suits your tastes and your personality! The last tip I can give you is ... Don't be afraid, Dare to stand out!!
