Yes you can, and should wear statement necklaces. When styling clients, I have been told many times that they would prefer not to buy statement necklaces as they believe they are too big to actually wear. Statement necklaces are the perfect fashion finds and will undoubtedly take your outfit to another level.
When wearing statement necklaces, try to make the statement necklace be the only jewelry that actually stands out. There is no need to wear too much army candy, cocktail rings or large earrings. I for one do like to wear some other accessories when wearing statement necklaces, but I try to make sure that the statement necklace is still the center of attention.
Here I am wearing this gorgeous statement necklace from Miss Match Boutique here in San Diego. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I was asked to style and photograph some of the collections you can find at Miss Match Boutique online and in the store. I styled this gorgeous printed shirt dress with a skinny belt, some simple accessories and a beautiful gold statement necklace.
A style tip for you here is that you can wear statement necklaces with patterns. While this might be a little scary for some, stick to your basic rules of mixing prints and you can have a fantastic ensemble.
Adding a statement necklace to a solid color dress or shirt is also another very easy way to wear a statement necklace. I love this beautiful cobalt blue dress from Miss Match. A very simple dress that is brought to life by this statement necklace, also from their Boutique.
