How to wear statement piecesBy Angela Thomas | 09/03/2014 12:35am
Despite their popularity, statement pieces can be intimidating. Here are a few tips to give you the confidence to wear that statement piece you have been eyeing.
To those novices with statement pieces, start with a neutral color. Blacks, whites and crystal-colored gems are great for dipping your toes in the water. Pair these with plain T-shirts or a little black dress. Try not to pair more than one statement piece to an outfit. People won’t know where to look, and that’s probably not the statement you’re trying to make.
For those familiar to the statement game who want to go bigger and bolder, try a multicolored piece with something simple. Mix single-colored pieces with louder prints, which means you can wear a bright necklace with a striped shirt to spice up the look. The latest trend in statement necklaces is the bib, or collared, style. To experiment with the trend, place a bib necklace under the collar of a polished oxford shirt for a chic feel.
