5 Reasons to Wear Statement Necklaces


If you’ve never been much of an accessories kinda girl, I totally understand any hesitation towards statement necklaces. But here’s the thing, they actually can be super helpful. They can transform a boring outfit into something a little more interesting, or add that touch of girly to your usual tomboy style. Once you see how useful statement necklaces truly are to amplifying your wardrobe, I think you might change your mind :). See 5 reasons why I wear statement necklaces below…

1. To Make a Simple Outfit More Interesting:

Whether it’s jeans and a t-shirt or black trousers and a classic white top, a simple outfit
can often look boring. Adding a statement necklace is a great way to make the outfit look complete.

2. To Dress Up a Casual Look:

Going to brunch at a nice restaurant instead of just grabbing a quick bite?
Add a statement necklace to your casual weekend look to create a more polished style.

3. To Make a Tomboy Look More Feminine:

To avoid looking completely like a boy in your sweatshirt and ripped jeans,
throw on a statement necklace for that touch of feminine flare.
