Every college student knows the difficulty of getting up in the morning for class, after studying all night for a test that is worth 30 percent of your grade. The last thing you want to worry about is picking out an outfit and coordinating jewelry with it. If you go away for school, it can also be very difficult traveling back and forth with jewelry, especially if it’s dainty because it can easily be lost.
This Fashionista knows all too well the difficulties I just spoke about. She paired her statement piece necklace with a burnt orange colored sleeveless top from American Eagle Outfitters, white skinny jeans and chestnut, gold sandals. By using her statement piece necklace, the outfit is automatically dressier than without it. To match the gold and rose necklace, this stylish Fashionista chose to wear a gold mantra band bracelet, a gold Alex and Ani bracelet and a white and gold bangle to tie the whole outfit together. Statement piece necklaces are great for traveling back and forth from home to school because they are larger in size and harder to misplace them.
When choosing a statement piece necklace, go with solid colors for the rest of the outfit. For example, if you as a Fashionista decide to wear a chunky coral colored necklace, go for a simple pair of white denim jeans and a solid light gray sleeveless top. If you keep the clothing items simple, the jewelry you choose to wear can stand out more and not be overshadowed by too much going on within the outfit.
How To: Do you have an outfit that you need to dress up, but don’t know how? Go with a statement piece necklace and pair of bracelets that match the necklace to finish off the outfit.
