5 Must Have Statement Necklaces
It often happens that I wake up in the morning and I am way too lazy to dress up fancy. I just want something comfy that doesn’t need to be ironed. So I end up wearing leggings with a long shirt, jeans with a white t-shirt or a dress. I know that these combinations don’t sound exciting, that’s why I always add a statement necklace. This way my outfit seems instantly more put together and more sophisticated. Check out 5 gorgeous statement necklaces that will upgrade any outfit! (promise!)
1The Faux Pearl Necklace
This necklace goes well with pretty much with any outfit, any colors and any kind of tops. You can wear it with a striped tee, a floral sweatshirt, a white lacey dress or a delicate blouse. If you wear it with a shirt, you can choose to wear it buttoned up and the necklace on the outside, or you can open the shirt a bit (2 buttons) and keep the necklace on the inside
2The spiky metallic necklace
While the faux pearl necklace does not necessarily need to be on the outside. I don’t feel comfortable wearing too much metal on my skin, so I pair this metallic necklace with a buttoned up shirt. You can also wear it with a striped tee or pastel colored dress. As mentioned, I don’t like to feel metal on my skin so I usually pick a top/dress that does not show too much skin.
3The Crystal Necklace
It can be transparent or slightly colored. It is very versatile and you could pair it with a buttoned up denim shirt or a casual top with jeans. For a preppy look, pair it with a sweater over a buttoned up shirt. For a relaxed look, you can even pair it with a graphic tee.
4The colored crystal necklace
I love this kind of necklaces, because they’re a great pop of color to a rather lazy white tee/blue jeans outfit. This is basically the key to upgrading a plain boring outfit. It attracts attention with the color and the way the crystals shine. In my case, I use it to give a touch of elegance and that the outfit was well thought, even if I’m wearing a simple t-shirt and jeans.
5The faux leather necklace
Wear a faux leather necklace over a light colored cotton t-shirt and pair it with skinny black jeans, for a relaxed casual look with a touch of elegance. If you prefer to wear dresses, try a simple, monochrome cotton dress with white Adidas originals.
So there you go, 5 must have statement necklaces that will definitely upgrade any of your outfits. If you want to build a solid collection of statement necklaces, start from here; what I presented is a basis that allows infinite combinations; if you are brave you can go for bigger and more intricate necklaces that might not be so versatile.
