Style Advice of the Week

Statement necklaces may be the easiest way to personalize an outfit. Worn with the simplest T-shirt and jeans, it adds style and ties the whole look together. They come in all varieties and colors, but this chunky chain necklace in classic gold is super versatile because it goes with any outfit. Statement necklaces can change up the look of a basic little black dress, enabling you to wear the same cocktail frock for multiple occasions. Throwing on a bold necklace can transform your look in two seconds flat.

The necklace acts as the focal point in the outfit, which is otherwise fairly simple. This look is perfect for going to class, when you want to look more put together or going to work, if you work in retail or another more creative field. Because of the gold hue, this necklace goes with any color scheme, making it highly versatile. The necklace dresses up any outfit, whether you’re going to a formal dance or just want to look extra-nice for class.

This Fashionista pairs a chunky, gold chain-link necklace with a flowy white blouse and an army green military-inspired jacket. Basic leggings and short, suede, lace-up boots complete the look. The jacket and leggings help counter the dressiness of the blouse and necklace, making this look suitable for everyday. Cat-eye sunglasses, a simple leather watch, and a black leather bag complement the outfit, but don’t compete with the necklace for attention. It’s best to pair a statement piece like this necklace with simple, neutral accessories, like this Fashionista does here. That way, the statement piece can take center stage.

Next time you’re looking to add a little something special to an outfit or want to change up your basics, try adding a bold statement necklace. Everything else you wear will look that much more stylish.
