I love a statement necklace. If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time you’ll generally see me wearing a statement necklace of some kind.
Why do I love them so much?
Well our love affair started when I learned that a large scale (statement) necklace will make your bust appear smaller. And as the owner, at the time, of a rather outsized bust I was keen to get the eyes on my face and away from my boobs.
This started my statement necklace collection. And even though I no longer have such a large bust (after my reduction) I still love wearing statement necklaces as I’ve discovered that they are a powerful accessory in many ways.
1. They draw eyes up to your face.
Creating a focal point near your face will draw attention to it and this is ideal as our face is also known as our “communication centre”. And as I always say, “If you’re looking in my eyes, you’re not looking at my thighs”.
2. They can add a pop of colour to your outfit
Want to add a 2nd or 3rd colour to your outfit? Well a statement necklace is an easy way to do this.
3. They express your personality
Accessories are an ideal way to express your personality, particularly in the workplace where you may have fewer options about what you can choose to wear to fit into the dress code.
Your statement necklace will tell the world a little more about who you are. It could be more casual and relaxed, more classic and refined, more quirky and edgy, more dramatic and bold… whatever it is that you choose it packs a punch and communicates more about who you are whilst adding a great focal point and detail to your outfit.
4. They can be used to change the level of refinement of your outfit
You can choose to dress an outfit down with more simple shapes and textures such as these chunkier resin beads.
Or dress your outfit up with some sparkle or layers of more delicate beads.
5. They add interest to an outfit
Your statement necklace can be used to take an otherwise plain outfit (which can be a tad boring) and turn it into somethine more unique.
6. They can help you to win friends and influence people (or just start a conversation)
Seriously, I’ve had so many people stop me and comment on my statement necklaces over the years. They really are conversation starters and we never know where a conversation may end!
Statement necklaces are particularly useful when making a capsule wardrobe work harder and are ideal for travel as you need less clothes to change the way your outfit communicates.
And what I love most, is that there are so many great sources of statement necklaces that cost little but pack a visual punch.
