I really do love statement pieces.
This huge turquoise necklace is my very favorite. I’ve had it for years and because it’s so heavy, I’ve broken it once and had to have it re-strung at a bead shop.
Black and white make great backdrops if you want to use a statement piece. I’ve tried this necklace on with patterns, but it’s just too much. It needs to be paired with neutral colors, so it doesn’t have to compete.
Contrary to that, I also love combining red and turquoise.
I wore this outfit to the kickoff meeting of the Charlotte Carolina Club Leadership Team at Vivace. In retrospect, I should have went sleeveless because we met out on their terrace and boy was it hot! However, I love the different textures of the black lace and the turquoise beads. Clearly, I have a penchant for lace this week.
Because I’m such a slight person, I have little rules about statement pieces, like no big earrings, no huge belts, no scarves, etc. Basically I follow the rule no two large accessories shall be worn at the same time. Kelly 2: 19.
Now there are exceptions to this rule but typically this is my own little silent rule. Personally, I think taller girls can get away with more than one large accessory at a time sometimes. But I also believe in being true to your own style, which means, feel free to throw any of my personal rules out the window.
Do you have a favorite statement piece?
Do you follow any self-imposed fashion or accessorizing rules?
