The Ultimate Guide to Styling Statement Necklaces: Make Every Outfit Pop!

In the ever-evolving world of fashion, one accessory has consistently remained a game-changer for any outfit: the statement necklace. At Bounkit, we believe that a bold, eye-catching necklace isn't just an addition to your wardrobe; it's a declaration of style, a testament to your uniqueness, and a way to breathe new life into every ensemble. Whether you're dressing up for a night out or accentuating your everyday look, knowing how to style a statement necklace can transform the ordinary into the extraordinary.



What Makes a Necklace a "Statement"?

Before we dive into tips for styling a statement necklace, let's first define what sets a statement necklace apart from other types of necklaces. Unlike its more delicate and subdued counterparts, a statement necklace is bold, distinctive, and often the focal point of your attire. It can vary in form—be it oversized pendants, beadwork, chunky chain, or intricate designs—but its purpose remains the same: to make a statement and get you noticed!

One thing that's special about Bounkit's statement necklaces is that they're all handcrafted and made to order in our New York City studio. We use semi-precious gems and high-quality metals like sterling silver and brass, sometimes plated with 14K gold or platinum. The range of colors and the attention to detail look even better up close, in person. We'd love for you to spoil yourself with one (or many) of our statement styles.



How to Style Statement Necklaces: A Step-by-Step Guide

1. Balance Is Key

When wearing a statement necklace, balance is your best friend. These pieces are designed to stand out, so let them shine by pairing them with simpler, more understated clothing. A solid-colored dress or a simple blouse provides a perfect canvas for your necklace to "pop" without competing for attention.

2. Mind Your Neckline

The neckline of your outfit plays a crucial role in how your statement necklace will be perceived. For V-necks or scoop necks, choose a necklace that follows the shape of the neckline without overcrowding it. High necklines, like turtle necks or crew necks, offer a sleek backdrop for shorter, chunkier statement pieces. The key is to ensure that your necklace complements, rather than clashes with, your outfit's neckline.



3. Mix Textures, Not Metals

While mixing different metal types can sometimes work, statement necklaces often pack enough punch on their own. To maintain harmony in your look, try to match the metal of your necklace with other jewelry pieces, like earrings or bracelets. However, playing with textures can add depth and interest. A smooth, metallic necklace against a lace top, for instance, creates a captivating contrast.

4. Color Coordination

Color plays a pivotal role in styling your statement necklace. If your necklace is brightly colored or features gemstones, consider wearing neutrals or complementary colors to make both your outfit and necklace stand out. Alternatively, a monochromatic look with a necklace as the pop of color can be incredibly chic and sophisticated.

5. Day to Night Transition

A statement necklace isn't just for special occasions; it can transform your day-to-day wardrobe as well. For a daytime look, pair your necklace with a casual t-shirt and jeans, adding a touch of glamour to an otherwise simple outfit. As the sun sets, transition your look for the evening by swapping the t-shirt for a sleek blouse or dress, preparing you for a night out.

6. Balance Your Jewelry Ensemble

When you choose to adorn your outfit with a statement necklace, it's wise to keep the rest of your jewelry understated to avoid overwhelming your look. This is particularly true for earrings—pairing a bold necklace with equally bold earrings can lead to a cluttered appearance, detracting from the elegance of each piece. Opt for subtle studs or small hoops that complement rather than compete with your necklace. This approach allows your statement necklace to take center stage, harmoniously balanced by your other accessories. Remember, in the art of jewelry, sometimes less is more, and allowing your Bounkit necklace to shine solo underscores your sophisticated taste and the craftsmanship of the piece.

7. Confidence Is Your Best Accessory

Ultimately, the most crucial element in styling a statement necklace is confidence. Wear it with pride and let your personality shine through. Remember, fashion is an expression of self, and a statement necklace is a bold declaration of who you are.
