25 Mar How To Pull Off Statement Jewellery
Statement jewellery has been around since early Egypt (thank you, Cleopatra) and it’s not going anywhere! In fact, it’s HUGE this Spring (read our Spring 2018 Trends post). If you’re one of those people who love the look on others but you’re not sure if you can pull it off yourself, we’re here to tell you: you can!
We’ve looked at all the fashion tips and trends and want to show you how absolutely anyone can start incorporating statement or chunky jewellery into their wardrobes.
Coordinate With Your Clothes
One of the easiest ways to tiptoe into wearing statement jewellery is by picking a neutral colour for your jewellery pieces — think muted tones, gold or silver. Or instead, choose a piece that closely matches the colour of your outfit.
When you feel more comfortable with your bold pieces, branch out and go brighter!
Pair Bold With Neutrals
Start out by wearing neutral colours with your bold jewellery piece. Try a black dress with a statement necklace, or simple jeans and a tee with large, dangly earrings. The more comfortable you become, the easier it will be to pair with patterns and bright colours.
Keep It Proportional
If you’re still testing the waters with statement jewellery, don’t go too far too fast! Keep the rest of your accessories neutral. Wear a bold pair of earrings or a necklace, but not both. Pair a statement necklace with a pair of neutral stud earrings, or if you’re wearing bold earrings keep the rest of your jewellery simple. One eye-catching piece is all you need, especially at first.
Start With Rings
Bold, colourful statement rings are probably the easiest way to start wearing statement jewellery. Earrings and necklaces are more noticeable when people are looking at you, while rings are more subtle.
The one caveat with wearing bold rings is that they will draw major attention to your hands so make sure your nails are neat and clean.
If you’re not comfortable buying a huge necklace or bracelet, try layering smaller ones you already own. This will still make a bold statement with no less of an impact.
Consider Shape & Size
Bold jewellery comes in all different shapes, sizes and patterns. Pick florals or smaller shapes as opposed to larger geometric chunky shapes. Smaller shapes and more subtle patterns can be easier to wear and incorporate into your wardrobe than larger ones.
Wear Bold Pieces For A Night Out
Statement pieces can be seen anywhere, anytime, but maybe you’re hesitant to wear one to work or out running errands. The solution is to break out your bold pieces when you’re out on the town. Pair them with a beautiful dress for a glamorous night out.
What a fantastic look a vintage jewellery piece can bring. Often, these vintage pieces are bold, yet classic without being too overwhelming. The vintage statement will draw as much attention as the more modern, bold pieces.
Remember, there are no real rules; wear what you like and what makes you feel good! Your comfort and confidence will be all you need to pull off any style.
