When creating an outfit I am all about balance. Even if you decide to go statement on some pieces you need to take in account that the other side of the outfit needs to be dressed down otherwise it might be a bit too much. There are some simple rules to apply this technique.
My favorite look is to pair basic, minimalist pieces with cool statement accessories. This goes practically for any type of accessories, from bold shoes, neon bags or some stunning chunky necklaces. This type of look can definitely make heads turn if you decide to enhance a simple casual outfit. Try it with basic pieces such as white t-shirts or tanks, nude tops, jeans or color-block pieces.
I totally love the look on elegant pieces as well because it makes them slightly edgier. I would definitely wear a chunky necklace with an evening dress and with a leather jacket. I think this look is very popular among celebrities and fashion insiders and you can get inspired from so many street-style blogs.
You can find amazing jewellery out there, but the key is to wear them separately and don’t layer them as the outfit may become too flashy. I really like this metal cuff I found on Very.co.uk and the chunky necklaces from Lipsy and French Connection. What do you think, aren’t they fab? 😉
