We have been recently asking ourselves at Novadab why statement jewelry is so popular, why is it so much fun to wear? After brainstorming together, we realized it’s not just their bold looks, appealing styles and affordability – it is because statement jewelry gives your outfit a focal point. We put together seven tips that will help you highlight your jewelry and make you look like a fashion diva!
1. Tie your hair high
Wearing a bold necklace will always bring attention to you, but with your hair in a sleek ponytail or a high bun the piece will become the focal point. We don’t want your fabulous necklace to get covered by your hair, no matter how wonderful your hairstyle is. When your hair is styled and your accessories are on point, then your outfit will be perfected.
2. Avoid Over-doing Your Jewelry
If you want your necklace to be the main focus of your ensemble, then choosing low key or no other accessories will do the trick. When you chose a smaller stud, pearl or rhinestone it accentuates the necklace but does not take away from it. Not just the earrings, but also keep your cocktail rings and bracelets minimal – that way your statement necklace will not have any competition.
3. Go with A Simple Top
A simple and solid top can work wonders in featuring your statement necklace. Avoid wearing a glittery top, that way the necklace is what catches the eye and not the sparkles. Simple prints and elementary colors should also be favored to highlight your statement necklace. The cleaner the lines of the outfit, the better!
4. Go for Contrasting Shades
Statement necklaces are best played up when worn in contrasting shades to your outfit. If you are wearing a gold-colored dress, wearing a gold color necklace may be an ideal match but it will make everything blend instead of pop. Alternately, the same gold-color necklace with a black dress will be an ultimate choice because it will highlight your jewelry.
5. Pick A Shade that Compliments Your Skin Tone
For medium to dark skin tones, gold finish is considered the best while silver finish pieces goes well with lighter skin tones. The shades of purple, blue and green goes best with the cooler skin tone while warmer skin tones do best with shades like green, yellow and orange. Matching your skin tone with the best background is crucial to making your necklace pop.
6. CHOOSE THE LENGTH OF YOUR NECKLACE ACCORDING TO YOUR NECK SIZE
If you have a long neck, then go with a choker style necklace which will accentuate your neck-area and collar bone. People with shorter necks, should go for long chain necklaces. If you are lucky to have a medium sized neck, then you can wear all kinds of necklaces because every length looks great on you.
7. Wear the Best Necklace for the Neckline of your Outfit
If you have a boat neck top on, then a choker-style necklace goes best with it. This kind of style of necklace is most accentuated when it has more bare skin around it. For high neck outfits and evening wear, you should pick a necklace with long chain. That way the neckline of your outfit does not distract from your necklace.
