ALL IN THE DETAILS: Sealed With A Statement

ALL IN THE DETAILS: Sealed With A Statement

It’s safe to say that if you play your cards right, you only need one key piece of jewelry to make a statement. It’s sometimes easy to get carried away with jewelry and have the sentiment that more is better. Statement jewelry is meant to make a statement—hence the name. With that being said, it’s best to keep it simple. Having a token piece of jewelry can instantly make a look memorable. Like Donatella Versace said, “Some say the economy means you have to persuade people to invest in clothes, to buy less things, but more expensive things. I disagree—invest in jewelry, or a house, maybe, but not in fashion.” Jewelry is transformative; it can elevate a look to the next level.

This Fashionista was on-point with accessorizing her look. She dressed up her gray lace-detailed T-shirt with a mixed-metal necklace and paired it with a turquoise bag. She topped the outfit off with a turquoise handbag, black booties and a striped mini skirt. The turquoise bag adds a pop of color, but still allows the statement necklace to be the focal point. With her necklace, the look is still casual enough to grab lunch with a friend, but could still be dressed enough to go on a dinner date.

How To: The key to recreating this look is to make sure you pick a jewelry piece that stands out. With that said, pick a piece that has something unique and special about it. For instance texture, color, material or pattern are all things to look for in a statement piece. When you finally find that perfect statement jewelry piece, it’s crucial to make sure that the outfit does’nt detract from it. It also important to keep in mind that you shouldn’t be afraid of putting a pattern in the mix, like this Fashionista did with her striped mini skirt.
