How to Wear Statement Jewelry from Runway to Real Way
The statement jewelry trend is here to stay!
Small and simple chains are so last season. It’s time for big, embellished and layered jewellery that adds an extra flair to your outfit. This trend has been spotted on the international runway (Dolce and Gabbana, Lanvin, Chanel, to name a few) as well as in our country by talented accessory/jewellery designers like Valliyan by Nitya Arora, and Suhani Pittie. Well, now you don’t have to reserve wearing statement jewellery for weddings or a special occasion anymore. All you need to do is keep a few simple rules in your mind and you will definitely turn heads when you walk into a room. In a good way, of course!
1. Keep your clothing simple: Team up the piece with a basic white tee and blue jeans to add some dazzle to your outfit. Colors like white, black and nude makes the statement jewellery more attractive and grabs attention. Avoid wearing it over crowded prints or you’ll end up looking like a fashion disaster.
2. Collar up: Throw it under a collared blouse or a dress and button it up to the top.
3. Layering: It is very essential to pick the right neckline for your necklace. When layering necklaces make sure you place them a little distance from each other so they don’t look like excess baggage.
4. Be Bold: Going for a cocktail party or dinner? Pair it with your little black dress and you will surely be remembered till the next one!
Wear a bold choker-like statement piece with an off–shoulder top/dress as they draw more attention to your face rather than the dress. (Just like Caroline’s Chanel piece from Two Broke Girls)
So, go out or shop online for statement necklaces, and buy yourself that one stunning jewelry piece and have fun pairing it with any of your outfits.
