Contrary to popular belief costume jewellery can look expensive and classy – as with all accessories it is how you wear them.
Chunky necklaces are a must have fashion jewellery for any season. They add instant glamour to any outfit, be it casual or formal. They are eye catching, focusing the attention towards the sexy neckline of your attire.
Why invest in a chunky necklace? You don’t have to shell out a fortune and they add instant glamour! There are more expensive options available the less expensive types can look just as bedazzling as their more expensive counterparts.
For a great daytime to night time look add a multi-row statement necklace.
Chunky necklaces of this type are made up of beaded strands. The beads can be made up of a variety of materials such as metal, plastic or wood.
They are available either as a single strand which can be worn twice or thrice around your neck to create layers or as multiple strands bunched together in a single necklace.
One of our all time favourite pieces has to be chunky leather necklaces. Leather is not only a durable material but is timelessly stylish.
Wear with a button down shirt for work or with a chic, strapless cocktail dress for the evening. You can also go casual and wear it as a single piece of jewelry with a t-shirt and a pair of jeans.
For an ultimate style “wow” factor add an ornate neckpiece. Warning: not suitable for wallflowers!
Simple Tips For Wearing Chunky Necklaces
- Avoid pairing a chunky necklace with other necklace styles as it may look too gaudy. A chunky necklace scores more points when worn on its own with an outfit. Although unnecessary, you can wear other jewellery such as earrings, rings and bracelets. But our advice would be to keep it simple.
- Keep your body frame in mind when shopping for a chunky necklace. If you have a short neck, avoid wearing very heavy necklaces which hug the neck as this may make you look bulky. Wear longer necklaces to focus the attention gracefully towards the upper half of your body. On the other hand, if you have a long neck adorn it with a heavy chunky necklace hugging the neck as this will make your
neck look beautiful and slender
