Statement Necklace 6 Ways + Bubble Necklace Winner

It's been so fun coming up with different ways to wear a statement necklace this week.  I've done...

As you can tell, I tend to like pairing a colorful statement piece with a more understated outfit.  Especially when you're enormously pregnant (that would be me), it's a great way to draw attention away from feeling huge and to spice up a comfy and casual look.  That doesn't mean you can't go crazy and pair it with prints and scarves and such.  But in general, on regular days, I like to have my statement jewelry really pull its weight and make a statement.  A couple of tips that worked for me:
  • Jazz up a plain or lightly printed tee (like the lace one), and throw in some fun shoes for some balance.
  • "Frame" your necklace - for instance, with a v-neck cardi or a ruffled collar dress.
  • Add some extra interest by layering it on top of an easy and fairly neutral print, like stripes or gingham.
  • Add a belt for some extra definition, especially with a big belly.
  • It works great with neutrals, but don't be afraid to pair it with unexpected color pops.  Coral, in particular, works great with MOST other colors - I especially love it with teal and light pink, but it was also fun and summery with red.

Oh - and a bonus outfit!

  1. I like your necklace, as well as the idea of framing an outfit around a bold piece like this one. You look gorgeous and glowing by the way.

  3. I love all the different outfits with the necklace, especially the ones paired with a tee - so easy, but so snazzy. I could seriously wear mine every day, and now I have even more ideas for it!
