Make a Statement


Ohh the statement piece. That one "must have" piece that every designer, stylist and fashion magazine tells us that we NEED in our wardrobe to take our look from wow to WOW, if ya know what I'm saying. Hopefully you do.

...What is it about capital letters that makes a point? Anytime something is capitalized we automatically assume that it's important. Or that someone's screaming at you via cyber space. Don't worry, I'm not yelling at you. Just trying to emphasize the "wow" factor.

Anyway - The statement piece is that one piece that, spoiler alert: makes a statement. It's the item that is a conversation starter and ultimate attention grabber. Most of the time this comes in the form of a chunky necklace, but it can also be found in glamourous bracelet cuffs or cocktail rings. But, for the sake of this post, we're going to stick to the most statement of statement making pieces, THE necklace. That's right. THE necklace. I know, there's the emphasizing with capital letters again, I'm sorry. Statement necklaces can be worn in a variety of ways and can be styled with endless options. Finding the right necklace can seem exhausting, but once you find a great statement piece it's almost impossible to say no. It's always fun to have that accessory that really takes your outfits to the next level and gets people noticing as it happens. They can be worn with a chic oxford button-down, a strapless cocktail dress or even just over a simple cotton tee for dramatic, sexy effect. No matter how the statement necklace is worn, it's sure to be a show stopper! That's the whole point of wearing one of those bad boys, right? The great thing about a solid statement piece is that they really don't need a whole lot of anything else with them. With a chunky necklace, it's best to pair it with a simple stud earring, dainty bracelet or small cocktail ring. You want to let the statement piece do all the talking and not overwhelm those that see you with your insane amount of bling all at once. Now, if you're looking for an item that you can wear everyday and with everything, this probably isn't your first choice. Statement necklaces tend to be pieces that, while you can vary how you wear them, they're really not made to be your go-to-every-single-day kind of jewelry. We wouldn't be making a statement if we wore them everyday now, would we? I think you get the point now. Statement necklaces are statement pieces. Wear them and wow your friends, that's really what it comes down to. It's sure to be a pick-me-up for any outfit that's lacking a little bit of pizzazz. Annnd now that I feel like I've gone in circles 20 times, here are some great statement necklaces that I'd love to add to my collection!
