I was involved in a Twitter conversation last week and people were on the fence about wearing a statement necklace with print. This is a trend I can definitely support - it's fun, interesting and when done right, really pulls a look together! Here are my tips for how to wear the look:
  1. Choose a print that's evenly distributed, regardless of size. Animal prints are perfect for this look. Florals work too, but avoid floral prints in which some flowers are bigger than others.
  2. To keep things easy, choose a solid hued statement necklace so it really pops. It's best to either pick a shade that's completely contrasting, i.e. red on leopard or find a non-dominant colour in the print that you can bring out with the necklace.
  3. The more subdued the print, the more outlandish the necklace can be. Traditional leopard is a good example of this; with all the colours in the print being neutral, you can feel free to add a big, bright bauble! 
  4. Balance out the statement necklace with minimal other accessories and avoid big earrings with a big necklace - it's too much.
  5. Pull the look together by adding the same colour somewhere else in the look, perhaps with shoes, a bangle or a bag.
Would you rock a statement necklace with a fun print frock?
