Wear it with the right necklineEssential Tips on How to Wear Statement Necklaces Picture
A statement necklace looks best with a v-neck or a round neck. It also works with shirt collars but be careful with the buttons. If the shirt has a large collar, wear it unbuttoned with part of the statement necklace showing under the shirt. If the shirt has a delicate collar, button the shirt and wear the necklace on top of the shirt. Generally, bigger necklaces look best with the shirt unbuttoned whereas smaller necklaces look best with the shirt buttoned up. There are also some necklines that you should never combine with statement necklaces such as: cowl necks, Peter Pan collars, turtle necks, halter necks or any neckline which is embellished with bows or ruffles.

BalanceEssential Tips on How to Wear Statement Necklaces Picture
Like everything in life, fashion is always about balance and the foundation of a successful outfit lies in a good understatement of the rules of colors and proportions. When putting together an outfit, try to choose a statement necklace whose colors either match or complement the colors of the top that you have in mind. If you choose contrast, try to match the necklace with another element of your outfit. For example, while it is not advisable to match your purse with your shoes, it is perfectly alright to match the shoes to the necklace. As far as balance goes, avoid earrings when wearing a statement necklace. If you insist, choose delicate earrings. Moreover, by all means, never buy matching earrings for a statement necklace.

Like any jewelry piece, the statement necklace highlights certain features, some of which we sometimes wish to hide. If you have a long neck, you can consider yourself lucky as you can wear any type of necklace. However, if you have a short and thick neck, be very careful when wearing a statement necklace. Choose longer versions that drop down to your cleavage and avoid all types of choker necklaces. Moreover, women with short necks should avoid wearing necklaces with any king of collar or high neckline and only wear them with v-necks or other types of low necklines.
