IS OVERSIZED STATEMENT JEWELRY FOR EVERYDAY?
Following our post on 'The perfect jewelry for a party-dress', we wanted to begin the new year fashion posts, with a matter that I hear a lot among girl talks. The oversized jewelry..
Oversized jewelry, especially earrings is the hottest trend, accessories-wise for Autumn/Winter 2016/17. It is the perfect way to bring life to an outfit and enhance your best features. Is it easy to wear it though?
Most of us think that statement jewelry can bebe a little intimidating. Perhaps you feel you simply ‘can’t pull it off’ on a daily look, and that is only for special occasions.
Well, we wanted to show you below, that big jewelry pieces, can actually work, and is a must for days that your outfit doesn't completely satisfy you..From cocktail rings to cuff bracelets and big necklaces, statement pieces come in all forms, designs, colours and sizes. They can work wonders to add dazzle to a simple dress or can help to draw attention to parts of yourself that you would like to emphasise.
The best way to make sure a statement necklace, is to wear it with the right neckline. Strapless, off-the shoulder, scoop necked or v-necked dresses and tops are ideal, as they will let your statement piece do the talking.
For a daily look, make sure to wear a statement necklace next to a simple and preferably one-colour top to keep the look chic and to do your necklace justice. You can never go wrong with neutral tones, so wear bright and attention-grabbing necklaces with black, white or nude to keep the look elegant.
Layered chain necklaces can look extremely charming if worn correctly.
Keep your look tasteful by making sure that you do not layer too many strands together and keep tabs on how much sparkle you layer on.
Statement earrings are beautiful, and cannot be missed. To make sure they frame your face, choose a pair that suits your face shape and enhances your features and avoid wearing statement earrings and necklaces at the same time.
When wearing dangly statement earrings, it is better to keep your hair sleek. However, hoop earrings require to pump up the volume with with loose waves or poker-straight hair. Alternatively, pull your hair up into a chic chignon.
For an office look (have a look at our guide on formal daily look), wear your favourite white shirt with a sweater and pair it with large hoop earrings that will make it chic and interesting.
Big bold statement rings are the way to go. You can transform a tee and jeans, a basic dress or even a sweater and leggings with one simple accessory. An easy everyday way to wear your rings!
Statement rings are quick becoming an accessory obsession. They are on almost every finger of fashionable women. Even when all other accessories are toned down, the chunky statement ring adds ‘oomph’ to any outfit. They can also accent a night out on the town looks with a touch of finger candy! Accessories are the perfect way to throw a monochromatic feel to any outfit. Use them as a way to tie in your color of choice!
Cuff bracelets are an excellent choice if you want to wear a statement piece. To show yours off, keep your arms bare or wear a cuff over a slim-fitting one colour long sleeve top. Stick to one cuff to create a focal point.
Bangles are another great option. Just remember that if you would like to stack a number of bracelets together, stick to one arm only. Keep to a maximum of six bangles at a time as a general rule of thumb to avoid overdoing it and make sure that the bangles’ colours and patterns complement each other. When layering them, throwing in some gold or silver always looks great.
