Bold Earrings

Bold, oversized, and haute couture earrings are perfect for women with long necks, making your body type look more proportioned. Like fashion blogger Kristina Bazan, you may opt for hoop or chandelier earrings with matching cuffs and bangles. Just remember that earrings draw attention to your face and your neckline, highlighting your neck. If you feel uncomfortable with oversized drop or hoop earrings, you may opt for a pair of stud earrings instead to frame your face without focusing too much on your neck. You can also choose something colorful and eye-catching, or keep it quiet with silver, gold, or bronze shade.

Chunky Necklaces

Chunky necklaces are a form of bold jewelry that frames the face and draws attention upward. Women with larger bust must skip chunky necklaces that fall on their bust line as it may only look exaggerated on your body type. Instead, go for chunky necklaces that fall on your collarbones or just above the bust line. If you wish to add more volume to your chest, you may opt for chunky necklaces with oversized pendants and fall on your bust line. The key is picking for chunky necklaces that lie flat against your body and stay relatively still as you move, rather than a moving piece of jewelry.

Long Chains

Long chains emphasize the length of your body, especially if you have a wider neck as it will give some proportions to your frame. If you’re intending to wear a long chain, choose a single chain that reaches down your torso or even your belly button. But if you have a long neck and don’t wish to emphasize it, go for a choker style of chain necklaces. If you have a colorful necklace, keep your top piece plain so it won’t distract the eye from the bold jewelry you’re wearing. On the other hand, if you’re wearing a gold chain necklace like Blair Eadie wore, feel free to go for printed tops like stripes, polka dots, floral, abstract and such.

Multiple Strands of Necklaces

If you have broad shoulders and wide neck, you can get away with wearing multiple strands of necklaces on your street style. Like Kristina Bazan, keep your strands on their respective layers to avoid looking cluttered and messy on your neckline. Every woman can get overwhelmed if you have too much going on, so stick to a neutral color like gold, silver, or black that blends into the top that you’re wearing. If you’re wearing a printed top, you may stick to gold chains in different length for a beautiful, rustic statement like Blair Eadie had.

Statement Bangles

Gold or silver bangles are always neutral that can go well with any color of your outfits. However, if you’re wearing a printed dress, you may resort to colored bangles matching the shades of your prints to look coordinated and polished on your looks. For a playful vibe, choose bangles made of colorful hard plastic while metallic ones for a glamorous look. On the other hand, layered pearl bracelets will add some classy feel to your style mking you look more sophisticated and elegant.

Statement Ring

Unlike necklaces or earrings, people are more likely to ask to examine the bold jewelry that you wear on your hand or arm. Wearing several statement rings all at once, especially if you have long fingers and broad hands perfect. Like Kristina Bazan, stick to the one color of metal when wearing statement rings altogether to keep the harmony on your looks.

Wearing statement jewelry is one of the stylish ways to look fashion-forward on your style and make those heads turn. So just follow our rules and make a bold statement on the streets.
