How to Style Statement Jewelry
The best part about statement jewelry is that your look will stand out loud and proud! Whether you’re dressing down for coffee with a friend or going to a cocktail party, statement necklaces, earrings, and bracelets elevate your outfits and make you look put together no matter the occasion.
Styling Statement Necklaces
We’ll let you in on one of our favorite secrets to making any outfit seem more put-together and stylized— statement necklaces. Adding a favorite statement necklace is a simple way to take every outfit to another level while feeling that stylish main-character energy.
Upgrade any LBD with a statement necklace as a powerful focal point for your night out. Or throw on the Eloise Necklace to make your office look stand out in Zoom meetings. Statement necklaces can add so much to the simplest of outfits.
5 Best Necklines for Statement Necklaces
Statement necklaces can make or break an outfit, and it all depends on finding the best necklace length and right clothing neckline for your jewelry. Play around with different options and see for yourself what best suits your unique jewelry, from your favorite dangly earrings to your statement necklaces.
In general, wearing a neckline that shows off your skin lets your statement necklace sit nicely without having to compete with the fabric of the shirt. If you must wear a top with a high neckline, be sure that the statement necklace length is long enough not to be swallowed by the fabric. Finding the best neckline for you and matching your statement jewelry will make your outfit a hit!
Styling Statement Earrings
Earrings are the piece de resistance of unique jewelry and can be made from insanely fun materials, from big feathers to vibrant beads. With earrings being the statement piece of your outfit, a statement necklace sometimes feels optional. We love matching our statement earrings to our necklaces just as much as we love letting our big earrings be the star of the look.
When styling statement earrings, don’t forget the importance of hairstyles! Experiment with wearing your hair in a classy updo to let everyone around you admire your earrings. If you’re feeling more casual, wearing your hair down means letting the beautiful, unique jewelry peek through in a more subtle way.
One of our favorite indie-made pairs of statement earrings is the feathery and fabulous Jasper and Black Feather Post Earrings. There’s something about this elegant and unique jewelry that screams, “wear me, wear me”! Pair these with your outfit to show off a hint of your personality and elevate any look.
From our favorite statement necklaces to our attention-grabbing earrings, there’s sure to be a handmade Embellish Asheville piece for you. Experiment with styles and necklines and find the right unique jewelry for you and your wardrobe. Let your statement jewelry be as big and beautiful as your personality!
