How to Wear Statement Jewellery

Are you looking to spice up your everyday look with something special and unique? Then statement jewellery is just the thing for you. From bold necklaces and chunky bracelets to extravagant earrings, a piece of statement jewellery can take an outfit from stuffy to show-stopping.

You might reserve statement pieces for special occasions, or you might consider wearing them every day. Not sure where to start when it comes to wearing statement jewellery? We’ve got you covered – read on for tips on how to style this must-have accessory into your wardrobe.

Pair with simple and elegant looks

You don’t want the statement jewellery to have to compete too hard for attention. It should be the focus of your outfit, and the best way to achieve this is by making your outfit simple and elegant.

The key is to balance out the simplicity of your outfit with a touch of sophistication. A statement piece of jewellery, such as a chunky necklace or oversized earrings, can also add some elegance to an otherwise simple look. 

Another option is to go for a minimalist approach with accessories and opt for a sleek clutch or structured handbag. Remember, less is often more when it comes to achieving a chic and elegant aesthetic.

If you choose to pair statement jewellery with loud prints and layered fabrics, this would be more of a maximalist style. There is certainly nothing wrong with this, you just need to have a lot of confidence in your style to make it look polished and elegant rather than chaotic and clumsy.

Layer multiple pieces of jewellery

One necklace alone might not be a statement piece, but when you pair it with two or three more, it suddenly takes on a new dimension.

For example, try pairing a delicate necklace with a statement bracelet or stacking multiple rings on one finger. The combinations are endless and can be tailored to whatever style you're feeling that day.

Don't be afraid to mix and match different metals or types of jewellery either; sometimes the unexpected combinations can create the most stunning results. So next time you're putting together an outfit, experiment with layering your jewellery for a unique and eye-catching look.

Mix and match different metals

Looking to add some unique flair to your jewellery collection? Why not mix and match different metals. Combining silver with rose gold or gold with platinum can create a stunning contrast that elevates any outfit.

Don't be afraid to experiment with different textures and finishes either - a hammered silver bangle paired with a sleek gold necklace can create a chic and edgy look. Mixing metals adds a playful touch to any ensemble and allows you to showcase your individuality.

Remember that fashion rules are there to be broken, and you don’t have to follow fashion trends if you are confident in your style.

Focus On One Piece

Focus on one piece

Your outfit might look a little busy if you have multiple statement pieces. For example, if you have a statement necklace, bracelet and cocktail ring, it could look chaotic. Instead, wear your statement pieces one at a time.

You can always wear more subtle pieces alongside the statement piece, just be sure they aren’t competing with the main piece. For example, if you’re wearing a bold necklace, keep your rings and bracelets more subtle and subdued.

Wear it with confidence

Above all else, you need to wear statement pieces with confidence. Wearing a statement piece will demand attention, and you need to be ready to turn heads with your look.

Adding statement pieces to your wardrobe is an incredible way to start dressing with confidence. When you’re wearing statement pieces, make sure you stand up tall and carry yourself with a confident air.

There’s an element of “fake it till you make it” involved in transforming your look with statement jewellery. You might not feel confident straight away, but you can let your jewellery communicate your confidence until it starts to feel innate.

Closing thoughts

Jewellery has the power to instantly enhance your look. It is a perfect way to draw attention, express your personal style, and add a final touch when it comes to fashion. 

You can opt for a classic approach and pair with simple and elegant looks, layer multiple pieces of jewellery, mix and match different metals for an effortless chic vibe or go for a maximalist style and layer up prints and fabrics. 

With careful thought, you can create visual balance with the size of your pieces so that each element in your ensemble can create beauty within itself.

Just remember that you need to wear it all with confidence. And if you aren’t feeling particularly confident in the moment, you can let your jewellery do most of the heavy lifting. You might not feel confident, but you’ll look confident with the right statement piece.
