How to wear statement jewellery

How to wear statement jewellery, our ultimate guide 

Statement jewellery has the power to transform an outfit from ordinary to extraordinary. These bold, eye-catching pieces can elevate your style, express your personality, and turn heads wherever you go, and with the party season right around the corner you might be wondering how best to wear it. Let’s go over some tips for wearing statement jewellery. 

1. Start with a simple canvas 

The first key to successfully wearing statement jewellery is to keep the rest of your outfit relatively simple. You should begin with your outfit – for statement jewellery to look best, keep it a neutral or monochromatic base, such as a little black dress or a white blouse and jeans. This minimalist backdrop allows your statement pieces to take centre stage without overwhelming your overall look. A heavily patterned outfit combined with statement jewellery might be ‘too much’. 

2. Choose one focal point 

To avoid looking cluttered, limit yourself to one statement piece per outfit. Whether it’s a stunning statement necklace, a pair of bold earrings, or an oversized cocktail ring, let that piece be the star of the show. You can complement this piece with more understated jewellery, or even none at all, to keep all the focus where you want it. 

3. Coordinate with your outfit 

While your statement piece should contrast with your outfit in terms of size and visual impact, it should still harmonise with your clothing in terms of colour and style. Choose statement jewellery that complements the colours or theme of your outfit, in order to create a cohesive and polished look. 

5. Keep the occasion in mind 

Consider the occasion when wearing statement jewellery. Large, extravagant pieces may be perfect for a glamorous evening event but could be overwhelming for everyday wear (though we personally think you should rock whatever you want to wear, whenever and wherever!) 

6. Balance proportions 

Keep the proportions of your statement piece in mind. If you’re wearing a large statement necklace, go for more delicate earrings and bracelets. Conversely, if you’re sporting oversized statement earrings, a simpler necklace or no necklace at all will help maintain a balanced look. 

7. Confidence is key! 

Ultimately, wearing statement jewellery is all about confidence. Embrace your unique style and personality and wear your bold pieces with pride. There’s no right or wrong way to wear it, and as long as you have confidence, you can pull off any look!
