I love keeping my look simple, especially while attending class, but fashion is all about standing out from the rest of the crowd. The best way to transform any outfit is by adding a little pizzazz and that’s exactly what a statement necklace contributes. By wearing a statement necklace this Fashionista dresses up a simple outfit and makes it chic.
The first thing to remember about wearing a decorative necklace is to keep the rest of the outfit basic and sleek. The necklace’s purpose is to add a pop of style to the look and most importantly “make a statement.” This Fashionista kept it simple in a solid coral knit paired with leggings, high socks and neutral colored boots. By keeping her outfit basic her eye-catching necklace is the first piece others will notice.
Another important factor to remember is to minimize distractions caused by other pieces of jewelry. Try to avoid other jewelry all together because the necklace will then lose its special flair and get lost in the rest of the outfit. This Fashionista executed and styled her outfit flawlessly by wearing no other necklaces and minimal accessories. Even though her watch is chunky it’s far away from her necklace, which therefore doesn’t cause a major distraction.
While this Fashionista chose an elegant necklace, there are plenty of other options including geometric, neon, chunky, multicolor and collared. To add elegance to an outfit like this Fashionista check out this similar necklace from Anthropologie. To complete the rest of the Fashionista’s the look, check out this coral sweat from Forever 21, knee high socks from Urban Outfitters and these brown boots from Steve Madden.
