Making A Statement
Posted by Devin
One of my very favorite ways to bring an outfit to life is by wearing a statement necklace. What is a statement necklace you might ask? It's basically a bold, usually large necklace that draws attention and adds dimension to an outfit. There's just something about a big chunky necklace paired with the right clothes that really makes things pop.
This has to be one of my very favorite necklaces too. I was shopping one day at Charming Charlie's with all four of my boys (I don't actually recommend this) when I found it. I had a few different pieces of jewelry I was considering buying and my boys all said "Get the blue one! Get the blue one! It looks like gumdrop candies!" Ok, that's good enough for me! I bought it.
Every time I wear it I get a compliment on it. I mean EVERY time. I guess my boys have pretty good taste!
If you don't have a statement necklace in your closet, I highly recommend getting one or two. I have been trying to beef up my jewelry arsenal over the last year and I have found that having the right pieces to pair with my outfits really takes them to a new level. You don't need a ton of things, just a few of the right things. Check out your closet and look to see what colors and styles you usually wear so you know which pieces will be versatile for you. If you can't decide between a few different choices, just go with whichever one resembles candy the most. It worked for me! ;)
