Statement jewellery has the power to transform an outfit and take it from ordinary to extraordinary. However, statement jewellery can often be challenging to style and can easily miss the style mark. Whether it’s a statement necklace, a bold bracelet or a pair of oversized earrings, discover our 10 tips for wearing statement jewellery that will help you wear your pieces with confidence.
1. Less is (generally) more
When it comes to statement jewellery, less is (generally) more. Too many statement jewellery pieces can make an outfit feel overwhelming and a bit confusing. Instead, give your statement pieces the attention they deserve and hold back on adding too many (we know it’s hard!). One statement piece should nail the look, but if like us, the bolder the better, you could add another piece that doesn’t take away from the other. We love to pair a statement necklace with a ring to bring a look together.
2. Keep it simple
If you’re going for a statement jewellery look, you’ll want to let your jewellery do the talking. Keep your outfit simple when wearing statement jewellery to draw the eye to your beautiful pieces and avoid strong patterns and loud colours, which can be distracting.
3. Choose your focal point
Choosing the focal point of your outfit is key when determining which statement jewellery you want to add. Take into account your outfit and where you want the focus to lie. Perhaps you’ve had a new haircut and want the attention around your face, statement earrings are the answer. Or maybe you have a dress with a plunging neckline? We suggest a statement necklace to have all eyes on you.
4. Consider the occasion
Always keep the occasion in mind when selecting your statement jewellery. While bold pieces may be appropriate for a night out or a special event, you might want to opt for more subtle statement pieces for professional or formal forays. Choose your piece accordingly to ensure your jewellery is appropriate for the occasion.
5. Experiment with layering
Layering can add depth, interest and a sense of personality to your statement jewellery. Combine different lengths of necklaces or stack multiple bracelets or rings for an effortless, on-trend look that is uniquely yours. The combinations are endless and are a great way to create a statement look with a mixture of simpler and bolder pieces. Just make sure not to overdo the layers, as they may become overwhelming - two or three is more than enough.
6. Balance proportions
When it comes to statement jewellery, it’s important to balance proportions when pulling together a killer outfit. Your face shape, hairstyle and whether you are opting for tightly fitted or oversized clothing will impact how your statement jewellery will look. For example, bold statement earrings are paired best with simple, slicked-back hair as opposed to high-volume, cascading curls which can look out of balance.
7. Consider your necklace
When it comes to statement necklaces, pay attention to your neckline. High-necked tops and dresses look stunning with shorter necklaces or earrings to avoid a cluttered look. Whereas lower necklines are best for showcasing longer, more elaborate pieces.
8. Complement, don’t compete
Ensure your statement jewellery complements your overall look rather than competes with it. If you're wearing a vibrant, patterned outfit, opt for simpler accessories that won't clash with the prints. On the other hand, if you’re having a monochrome moment you can experiment with bolder, more statement pieces.
9. Confidence is key
Embrace the boldness and uniqueness of your statement jewellery and wear them with confidence. You’ll exude self-assurance and your natural beauty will be amplified. Statement pieces naturally become conversation starters so get ready to be the centre of attention.
10. It’s all in the details
Don’t forget about the smaller details when wearing statement jewellery. Making sure your pieces are well-maintained, clean, and free from tarnish or damage is essential to ensuring a luxe look. The Loveness Lee Aftercare Program ensures your jewellery pieces are kept looking their best for years to come.
Don’t forget about hair and makeup! These can either enhance or distract from your overall look when paired with statement jewellery, so play around and see what works.
