In today’s post, we want to ensure you know how to wear statement necklaces. From our experience, balancing something heavy and chunky on the top of your outfit can be challenging. This is where layering comes in. We have put together ten different ways to wear statement necklaces!
Layer a lighter necklace with a heavier one.
This will help balance the weight and give your neck a more graceful look.
Layer an open cardigan or V-neck sweater over an embellished skirt or dress.
This helps create more flow in the garment and lightens the shoulder profile.
Statement necklace + crew neck sweater
One of our favorite combos is a statement necklace with an everyday crew neck sweater. The key is to find a sweater with interesting details or textures so your eye doesn’t just go right to the necklace. It’s best to find one in a muted color that isn’t too bright so that it won’t compete with the statement necklace.
Statement necklace + coat
Another great way to wear statement necklaces is layered over coats. There are plenty of options out there! Try denim, a leather jacket, or a pretty coat like this striped version from TOPSHOP.
Statement necklace + a printed blouse
We have loved statement necklaces on tanks, tunics, and anything with a print or pattern! This can be the easiest way to layer your necklaces. Try layering something like this striped tee or this sheer tank with a statement necklace for a fashion-forward look.
Statement necklace + covered button-up shirt
Sleeveless tops are another great option to layer over a statement necklace! You get the best of both worlds with the open neck and the dramatic jewelry. You can even throw on some accessories like you would with a sweater or coat if you want to feel more dressed up.
Statement necklace + silk blouse
Silk blouses are another way to balance out any necklaces. This is a great option for a softer necklace style that won’t break the bank, such as this statement by KOKO.
Statement necklace + leather jacket
A leather jacket can be another great way to add weight to an outfit without adding anything bulky on top! We love how this one from REEF is structured and edgy while still wearable.
Statement necklace + blazer
A blazer is another classic option for layering! You can decide how buttoned up you want your look depending on how you wear it. If you button the blazer, it’s dressier and elongates your torso. If you leave it partially unbuttoned, it has a more casual flow. Either way, this is a great look for the office or going out!
Statement necklace + cropped tank + shorts/skirt
Last but not least, we have Statement Necklaces over shorts and skirts! This youthful style pairs perfectly with cute barrettes or goes perfectly with an oversized t-shirt. This is a very relaxed way to layer statement necklaces, and you can easily throw on some accessories for a more dressed-up look. This look can be an example of layering to wear over any shorts/skirt.
There are plenty of ways to wear statement necklaces, and we didn’t hit them all! We hope this helped you understand how you can layer a statement necklace so that you can find the best way for you. We highly recommend trying different things to see what works for your body and style! Have fun with these tips.
