Even as clothing styles come and go, jewelry continues to be a go-to accessory for fashion-forward people everywhere. There is no other accessory that can bring out the radiance of an outfit quite as jewelry does. Additionally, it is the ideal means of expressing oneself.

Although there are no rules for wearing jewelry, when statement necklaces are badly styled, they can be an eyesore. If you want to avoid a fashion faux pas, this article is perfect for those who want to know how to wear statement necklaces.

How to Wear Statement Necklaces

We fully concur with the notion that having an amazing look is a must for having an amazing attitude. As we already know, statement necklaces are the ideal method to express yourself in virtually any circumstance.

Many people believe that a statement necklace should be the only piece of jewelry you wear. Although we think this is a great course of action, we disagree with others who claim it is essential if you want the necklace to stand out. Indeed, you shouldn't pair a statement necklace with equally flashy bracelets or earrings. Not only will this detract from the necklace's ability to draw attention, but it will also give the overall ensemble an overcrowded, chaotic look.

You can really bring out the colors of a statement necklace by wearing modest accessories in the same color as the necklace. Your bracelet and earrings will not draw attention to themselves, but they do serve to complete your ensemble. Just make sure your statement backs up your simple pieces.

A bold necklace statement piece is the ideal accessory for a night out or a special occasion. Dresses are the ideal garment to wear with big, bold necklaces when they are styled properly. It should come as no surprise that if you are going to wear the necklace with a dress, the dress should either be collarless, strapless, or have spaghetti straps to avoid a busy look.

Checking out what you intend to wear is the first step in creating a well-coordinated outfit. Determine if your shirt's main color is warm or cool. Red, orange, and yellow are examples of warm colors, while blues and greens are examples of cool colors.

In general, warm colors seem best when combined with other warm colors, whereas cool colors look best when combined with other cool colors. Fashionistas, however, agree on three color combinations as being superior to all others:

  1. White or black with a contrasting color to make it stand out.
  2. A color scheme made up of three complementary colors that sit close together on the color wheel.
  3. A mix of two opposite colors on the color wheel.

How to Wear Statement Necklaces for Work

When picking a statement necklace for the office, stick to a single color. It is entirely up to you whether that refers to the metal or the color of the ornamentation. If the necklace's single color contrasts or perfectly matches another color in your ensemble, it will still be conspicuous and eye-catching while also seeming cleaner.

To keep all the drama on your necklace, wear a vivid necklace with either a plain black dress or a fresh white shirt. If you want to wear something more ornate, pick a metal-only necklace without any further adornments. This sort of necklace will appear more polished and sophisticated when worn with a vibrant business outfit.

The Importance of Jewelry

Accessories have a significant impact on how well an outfit "works." Simply put, any jewelry you choose to wear will make you stand out—whether it's an ornate necklace or a subtler one. For this reason, new trends are created in cooperation between jewelers and clothes designers. In addition, jewels are no longer seen as simple ornaments but rather as works of art in their own right.
