Sporting Statement Necklaces

Hiya lovelies, I was into junk jewellery in my college days. Post marriage, I stopped wearing it altogether. The statement necklace trend caught my eye and I gave it a shot but did not like I much. I was enamored by the celebs who sported them with such finesse. I heart Kirron Kher's with elegant sarees.

She was the one who enticed me the most to try this trend one more time. So, I read around a bit and this is what I learnt:

  1. Statement neckpieces must be worn with plain, light self prints or textured tops only. If there is a lot going on in your top, the two will clash and kill each other! Battle of attention here :)
  2. If you are experimenting and not sure of what to do, start with smaller pieces and work your way up. The owl necklace from Forever 21 is an excellent start. There any many dupes inspired pieces available easily in local markets
  3. Weave your personal style with it. While I was straying out of my comfort zone with the accessories, I decided to stay in my comfort zone as far as the outfit was concerned. This way, I was more confident about wearing it
  4. Select a piece based on your body type. There are very few designs that are universally flattering. A statement necklace is a great way to draw attention away from where you don't want it to go. If you are large busted, a heavy chunky piece that rests on your bosom will look odd. Your necklace needs to fall between your neckline and bosom in this case. A large pendant on a chain can be worn to fall below your bust. This works the other way round for those who are not well endowed. 
Okk, enough gyan... now tell me how you liked this...


The entire outfit is a product of flea market bargain hunting :)


Ignore the unruly brows. I am trying to grow out an over plucking misshap
