How to Rock Statement Jewelry
by Katrina Mitzeliotis
When it comes to getting dressed, I definitely have the most fun picking out my jewelry. Trends may come and go, but with jewelry, you should stay true to your individual sense of style. My personal taste is very eclectic—I love big, bold and even colorful pieces! Check out some of my personal favorite statement pieces from my jewelry case and the David’s Bridal styles I can’t wait to try.
If I’m wearing jeans and a simple blouse, I always like to take my look up a notch with a standout necklace, like the pink one I’m wearing here. This bold, multi-strand style was definitely the highlight of my outfit.
If you’re wearing a strapless dress or a simple sheath and feel like you want to add a little glam to your get-up, pair it with a bold necklace like the one below.
Single Standout Bracelets
For every day, I often layer a bunch of different bracelets and bangles, but when I’m getting all dressed up I often wear single cuff. It’s dramatic without competing with your outfit, and it was a huge trend on the red carpet during awards season.
I love the feminine detailing of this piece and how the floral trend is representing. It definitely gives an outfit a softer, almost vintage look which is so popular for spring.
Rings and Chandelier Earrings
Nothing makes a statement quite like a bold ring, especially when you’re getting all dressed up. For formal wear, I rely on a more traditional cocktail ring like this brown one.
If you prefer earrings to a ring, you can recreate the look with a statement pair of chandelier earrings. I love the way a dramatic earring looks with a dress, when the neck is kept bare and the hair is swept up or to one side.
Proper storage is crucial when it comes to accessories—and that rule also applies when you’re on the go! Whether you’re preparing for a trip or just cleaning out your closet, be sure to properly store your special accessories. Jewelry cases also make great gifts for girlfriends!
