Accessories can make or break an outfit. Update your look with an interesting piece of jewellery or wear a conversation piece. A chunky necklace can enhance your look or end up distracting from a beautiful top. Make a bold or subtle statement with a chunky necklace. Just be sure to wear the right necklace with the right outfit. If you wear it wrong, a chunky necklace still draws attention, but not the kind you want.
Choose your necklace according to your personal style. Chunky necklaces are available in several different lengths, colours and materials.
Pair a thick, colourful necklace with a solid top that has a simple neckline. This keeps your look from being too busy and highlights your necklace. However, if you want to add more flare to your outfit, choose a fun print and a solid coloured chunky necklace for a bohemian look.
Whether you wear a solid or patterned top, match your necklace with similar (non-jewellery) accessories. If you wear a tribal-inspired necklace, pair it with strappy sandals and a rugged leather purse or beaded bag. If you prefer sparkle and glamour, pair your crystal necklace with a plain coloured T-shirt and dark denim jeans. Wear that same necklace for dinner out with a simple shift dress and elegant purse.
Another option is to wear a flowing, billowy top with a heavy, chunky necklace. The weight of the jewellery will keep the shirt close to your chest, giving you some shape, while the lower part of your shirt still flows free.
Eliminate all other jewellery except your rings. If the rest of your outfit is fairly neutral, you can wear a single bracelet or a cocktail ring. However, too many accessories with a chunky necklace take away from its stylish effect.
