Accessories can make or break an outfit. This is especially true with bold and statement-making accessories such as the chunky bead necklace. To make sure this accessory completes your outfit instead of confusing it, here are two tips to keep in mind when wearing this statement piece.
Keep it simple
Always wear chunky bead necklaces with a clean neckline by sticking with embellishment-free options. Also choose open neck tops such as crew necks, v-necks, scoop necks, or even strapless necklines to better showcase these kinds of jewelry. If you must accessorize around your bold piece, wear very minimalist earrings and a bracelet or a cocktail ring. Adding more jewelry accessories will likely overwhelm your outfit.
Keep it coordinated
To successfully build an outfit around chunky bead necklaces, make sure to keep an eye on the following details: occasion, material, and color. These elements need to work well together in order for you to come up with a great outfit.
Keep it fun during a day out with friends and pair a chunky necklace in a bold color with a top or dress in a contrasting or complementary solid color (e.g. a bright fuchsia pink necklace with a cobalt blue top or a turquoise green dress). You can also channel bohemian chic by pairing your bright chunky necklace with a fun print. These casual occasions mean that almost anything – from organic wooden beads to intricate metal work – will work with your outfit!
If the occasion calls for a more subdued or formal look, choose hues that are on the softer end of the color spectrum and pair these with your solid or elegantly patterned neutrals. Sticking with our pink example earlier, a pastel pink chunky necklace will look great with tops or dresses in neutral (white, black, gray, tan, etc) or pastel colors (sea foam green, baby blue, very soft yellow, etc). Keep things interesting by adding a punch of metal in your accessories (e.g. a gold clutch, silver shoes, etc).
I’d love to hear from you!
Recently I received a video testimonial for “Strong Pink Square Tagua Nut Beaded Necklace” from Faye. Click here to see it. In the video, Faye tells us how she loved the vibrant color of the necklace and how it allows for clasping at various point to adjust the necklace to any neckline. Another plus for Faye was the fact that the necklace was a fair trade and organic item handcrafted by an Ecuadorian woman.
