ALL IN THE DETAILS: Make A Statement

July 15th, 2015 at 2:00am

There is nothing wrong with being bold. Bold in your beliefs, bold in your ideas and ways of thinking and, of course, bold in your outfits. Being bold exudes confidence, and confidence is always beautiful. One of the quickest ways to accomplish this is by making a statement through accessories. In this case, a statement necklace for a rather simple outfit will be all you need to maintain a bold, composed look.

If the talk of large pieces of jewelry makes you uncomfortable and if you think they’re too much, think again. Trust me, people won’t be staring at you in disgust. They’ll be staring in admiration. I know this because I was one of the people who stared. That’s how I found this beautiful Fashionista!

This Fashionista’s outfit is cute and simple, which makes it a perfect base look for a bold accessory. She paired her high-waisted, light wash denim shorts with a black crop top and an olive green kimono. Her sandals are neutral. Her black crop top sinks down into a V-neck, creating the perfect opportunity for a large statement necklace. This Fashionista’s necklace showcases an intricate design and pairs perfectly with her kimono.

How To: Go for a large necklace when your outfit is rather plain. If you can, try to match the shape of your necklace with the shape of your shirt. So, if your shirt is a scoop neck, try to find a necklace that mimics the curve of your shirt. This will provide a sense of unity between your accessory and outfit. Again, don’t be afraid of being bold. A statement piece, whether it’s a hat, a pair of shoes or, in this case, a necklace, is always a good idea.
