What is a Statement Necklace?


Welcome back to the De Bawa blog! In our last blog post — our very first —  we introduced our blog and what to expect on our upcoming blog posts. To learn more about what to expect on the De Bawa blog, read our last post, or stick around and learn how to wear a statement necklace best!

What Makes a Statement Necklace?

A statement necklace is pretty easy to identify. They are usually chunky, sparkly, and will grab your attention. They aren’t meant to blend into the rest of your outfit, but to, at the very least, complete it and maybe even be the centerpiece. Many statement necklaces sit on the collar and décolletage area. However, statement necklaces can come in all shapes and sizes and may be long and layered, reaching your navel area.

How Do I Pick A Statement Necklace?

When looking for a statement necklace for yourself, there are a few things that you need to consider.

Based on a Particular Outfit

First, if it is for a particular outfit, you must consider what would look best with the colors, the style, and neckline of the outfit you are wearing. Also, think about what would compliment or match your outfit.

The Neckline

Neckline shape can play a big part in deciding what kind of statement necklace you pair with your outfit. Wider necklines can be perfect for a collar necklace. However, a plunging neckline works well with longer layered necklaces. Higher necklines work well with a collar necklace as well, but a long chain with a striking pennant can also be the perfect fit. It really depends on your preference!

Personal Preference

Picking your statement necklace also depends on your preference and personal style — what necklace do you want to wear? Which one makes you feel your absolute best? At the end of the day, it’s about you, what you like, and what makes you feel your best.

How Do I Wear A Statement Necklace Well?

One of the most important things to remember when wearing a statement necklace is that all your other accessories need to be muted. This doesn’t mean you can’t wear any other jewelry with your statement necklace; it means that you choose simple looking pieces like sleek hoop earrings, sparkly post earrings, a couple bangles, or simple ring bands.  Wearing too many eye-catching pieces can take away from your necklace and make your outfit feel cluttered.

Does It Make You Feel Beautiful?

Ultimately, when you are picking out your statement necklace, it’s about you and how it makes you feel. Is it comfortable? Does it lay well without you needing to re-adjust it multiple times throughout the night? Does it make you feel beautiful?
