How To Wear It
Before we get into some of the best pieces of clothing that you can wear with your statement jewelry?
Let’s first make sure you know what you the things you should be on the lookout for and take into consideration when you’re shopping for modern jewelry.
1. Consider The Length Of The Chain
One of the first things to keep in mind when shopping for modern jewelry?
Which chain length is the best fit for the length of your neck and the necklines that you gravitate towards?
Need a little help?
This necklace chain length guide from Roma Designer Jewelry is incredibly helpful. If you’re looking for a shorter necklace, try anywhere from 14-18 inches in length. A standard necklace length that dips just below your collarbone will be anywhere from 20-24 inches long.
If you’re looking for length try a 26-36-inch necklace to turn heads!
2. Select The Right Metals And Materials
What’s another crucial aspect of choosing the right piece of jewelry?
Make sure that you consider the kinds of materials and metals that match with your skin tone and the pieces of clothing in your closet.
One of our favorite metals of the moment? Rose gold, which gives off somewhat of a pinkish glow. Especially if you can’t get enough of the vintage look, invest in a few rose gold pieces.
Finally, always buy quality materials like sterling silver, 14 karat gold, or platinum when possible.
Yes, these metals are a little bit more of an investment. However, buying quality over quantity ensures that these pieces will last you a lifetime.
What To Wear It With
Now that you understand what to look for when it comes to buying modern jewelry that fits with your style?
Let’s take a look at some of the best outfits you can pair it with below.
1. With A Black Turtleneck
One of the best ways to wear the statement pieces you’ve invested in when it comes to modern jewelry?
By keeping the rest of your outfit simple.
Unless you’re going for an intentionally over-the-top look, (like the ladies of Advanced Style?)
You don’t want to look like you’ve decided to wear every single thing in your closet.
That’s why we love the idea of rocking your biggest pieces with an Audrey Hepburn-inspired black turtleneck. First of all, especially if you’re wearing more colorful pieces, the black turtleneck will really help your pieces to pop.
Additionally, a black turtleneck is a piece that’s easy to dress up or keep casual. If you’re dressing for work, toss on a pair of skinny jeans and a pair of your most comfortable flats.
If it’s date night, throw on a red or pastel-colored pencil skirt and a pair of spike heels for a cute but still accessible look.
2. With A Tee-Shirt Dress
Remember that the key to wearing your modern jewelry the right way is to pair it with clothing that doesn’t distract from or compete with it.
What’s one of our favorite fashion trends that’s absolutely perfect for pairing with some of your wildest jewelry?
The tee-shirt dress, a favorite style staple of celebrities everywhere.
We can’t get enough of the versatility — and not to mention, the comfort — of the tee-shirt dress!
You can wear a solid-colored option, or you can rock a longer tee that shows your support for your favorite band or musician! If you really want to make a statement, you can layer a few bangles on your arms.
For an ultra-sleek and sexy look, pair your tee-shirt dress with thigh high boots.
3. With A White Button-Down
Do you gravitate towards more of a preppy, classic style?
Are you always all about looking put-together — but you rely on your modern jewelry to help to give you a little bit of an edge?
If so, then we love the idea of wearing some of your favorite necklaces and statement earrings with a white button done.
This is a piece that looks great on every size and shape, and gives your jewelry the chance to speak for itself.
