How to Wear Statement Necklaces

It is officially the first day of spring! Which means fun dresses paired with statement necklaces!

As I post more and more you will see that I wear statement necklaces with the majority of my outfits. I wanted to take the time to lay out how I work this awesome accessory into my outfits.

  1. If you’re wearing something that exposes your decoletage…wear a statement necklace! It fills in the extra space and adds a pop to any outfit.
  2. Wearing a basic t-shirt or sweater? Throw a statement necklace on to dress up your outfit or just to add some bling.
  3. One time I would recommend NOT wearing a statement necklace is when there’s a lot of print on the item of clothing you’re wearing. Adding a statement necklace on top of all that print would just look way too busy and overdone. That’s not to say that you can’t ever pair a statement necklace with print, just not with something like paisley or houndstooth, it’s just too much.

A few notes on the outfit below:

I love love love this dress! It is super comfy and it has pockets, which is super convenient if you don’t feel like carrying around a purse but still need to bring a few small items. Also, I normally would pair this dress with a orange cardigan but given that I just moved from Alaska to Texas and its almost 90 degrees outside that’s not an option for me here.

Secondly, my office is super strict about the height of your heels. Normally I would wear a sophisticated sandal or a taller heel but I had to adhere to the rules, so these heels were what I had to work with 🙂
