Some tips to consider before deciding to wear a statement piece:
- Work around a main piece or article of clothing. If your outfit is busy or has patterns, best to go with simple accessories.
- Ask yourself: Am I featuring or accentuating something else with this piece? If so, you’ve nailed it! Get out there and wow your friends!
- Know which accessories in your wardrobe are accent pieces and which are statement pieces. Separate them and use accordingly. I literally have organized my closet this way (no judging).
So let’s take a look at a couple of examples to show you what I mean:
This necklace on the left is a statement piece: Bright colors, bold curves and shapes makes this one better off worn with a solid color top or dress.
The necklace on the right is an accent piece: with muted, monotone colors, it complements patterns or busier prints perfectly without taking away from the outfit as a whole.
So go have fun trying on those beloved and new outfits with your accessories! The more attention you pay to your outfits, the easier this will become.
