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
Your earrings are so cute! I love how you styled them with a simple, classic look too! Thanks for featuring me in today’s post!
On paper I should hate these – but I think they look great on you Adriele! They are beautifully intricate, cute and fun!! xx
These earrings are so fun and chic! I adore the bold colors of them. Love how you kept the rest of the look simple. Thanks for the link up!
These earrings have been on my wishlist for a while but I had no idea what outfit to wear with them. Love how simple this outfit is with the surprise statement earrings!
Adriele, those are the cutest earrings ever! I love them!
Adriele, I adore the simplicity of this outfit. It is super sassy, too! And how cute are those earrings! I agree with you about the one statement piece.. Sometimes the earrings can be so over powering that a necklace is just too much. Great styling tip, for sure. But I also agree if you are an Iris Apfel type and want to rock all the statement pieces at once, you should totally go for it! Great look, great post.
Such a cute look! Love those earrings and that bag!
Love the outfit on this post. I’m a big fan of navy and white and that little rattan purse is so cute.
The earrings are adorable, and I love how simple the outfit is!
I never really step outside of the box with jewelry, creature of habit, but these are precious!
I love those earrings!!!
So cute girl!
I love the earrings with that woven bag! I hope this trend doesn’t go away too quick!
At first glance I didn’t even notice they were flamingos! But once my eyes adjusted, so dang cute! And I’m sneaking out to the mercantile over lunch! Need a couple new pieces for our vacay! Hope they carry this tank or one of the colors in store!
So freaking cute!!!!! Love it all 🙂
I have loved those earrings ever since the first time I saw them on the BaubleBar site. They are so cute. I love this entire look and you right about simplicity. Beautiful! XO

Flamingos are a favorite in my family. It started out being a joke with my dad hating them and us gifting him different flamingo items pretending we think he likes them. Anyway my mother and I love flamingos and your earrings are adorable!
