Sharing my tips on how to wear statement necklaces!

Hello lovebugs!

I hope you are all doing well! I’m so excited to share with you one of my favorite looks yet. It’s no secret that I’m beyond obsessed with anything boho, so it’s safe to say that this Gypsy Statement Necklace from Happiness Boutique was calling my name. I thought I would share with you how I styled it + a quick guide on how to wear chunky statement pieces!

Tip #1: Ditch the earrings

When you’re wearing chunky necklaces, try to minimize all other distractions. I always skip wearing earrings altogether. The necklace itself is already so eye-catching…why add more? You don’t want to look like you’re desperately over-doing it.

Tip #2: Pair your statement necklace carefully with other jewelry

Like I said, less is more. But if you must wear more jewelry, try to make sure the pieces flow nicely together. Boho style is all about chunky accessories, so my bracelets complete the look without being too overbearing. Another tip is to add fun statement rings to go with your statement necklace, if bracelets are too much.

Tip #3: Pair your necklace with your neckline

Necklines are everything when it comes to wearing statement necklaces. Typically, strapless, scoop-necked, or OTS necklines are perfect for pairing.

Tip #4: Pair with solids or prints….your call!

I personally think that statement pieces work for both solid-colored pieces or printed pieces. Obviously for this post, I chose a solid-colored taupe dress, but a few days ago I wore this same necklace with a printed dress (see on Insta), and I think it looked just as awesome!

Tip #5: Have fun with it!

Boho statement pieces are my personal favorite. If I could wear this necklace all day with every outfit, I would! The take-home idea of this post is to use my rules loosely. Statement pieces were invented for that reason exactly- to make a statement! Trust your inner fashionista and own it, girlfriend!

    The necklace goes great with the dress. I don’t know if I could pull it off but it looks lovely on you:-)

    • You totally could, I know it :)

    I’m a huge fan of statement necklaces and they add a pop to any outfit. Love the layers in your necklace!

    • Aw thanks so much, girl! You’re the sweetest!

  • Neely

    I love this! The way you paired the dress and the necklace is so pretty!

  • Statement necklaces used to be my “thing” haha but I’ve gotten away from them. I’ve been wanting to incorporate them a lot more lately, now that I believe I’ll be in the corporate world. I love how you styled it! Maxi dresses are so cute! I love them even though I’m only 5′.

  • I’ve always been just a little bit hesitant with statement necklaces. But tip #1 is easy for me since I can’t wear earrings! I think doing a bigger necklace might be nice so earrings are never an option for me.
