Statement jewelry is an excellent way to add a bit of drama to an otherwise basic look. The rule I always abide by is this: pick ONE statement item per look and build around that.
For example, I have on these super fun flamingo earrings:
I added a bold fuschia lip but kept everything else simple. No necklace, no crazy colorful bag or blouse. Too often I see someone wearing ALL the accessories at once. More often than not, style comes with simplicity. This idea of picking one main feature to stand out from an outfit also applies to makeup. If you’re wearing a bold lip- don’t do a dark smoky eye- it ends up looking too costumey. Do a statement lip OR a bold eye. Wear a fun necklace OR pick a pair of statement earrings. The trick is in the restraint. (Unless of course your thing is wearing all the bold things at once, and if that’s your own personal style, rock that.)
Keeping with that neutral theme, I wore nude sandals, my favorite jeans of all time, this simple scalloped tank, and this cute woven bag. The star of this look was the earrings and I wanted to showcase that.
Speaking of which, I purchased an extra pair of earrings to give away! a Rafflecopter giveaway
