It’s no secret that I love good statement jewelry. I feel it can add that special touch to your outfits or provide that often much needed extra color to your face. As I love to wear simple minimalistic outfits, it’s often the jewelry that gives it something special.

Today I will feature some of my favorite basic outfits and will highlight how jewelry can turn these outfits from regular to spectacular.

Many women, including me, love to wear black and white. Still, that can look quite harsh on many women so you want to add some extra color to your face.  The same goes for an all (winter) white look which is still very fashionable.

Wearing a statement necklace can be a great solution. These 2 red statement necklaces will provide color and add something special at the same time. If you feel like a more subdued look, you can just opt for a colorful bracelet. The final look will look modern, arty and hip!

Sometimes it’s nice to wear neutral colors like gray and black. Nothing beats a little black dress for a chic understated look in the evening. If you like to make your outfit a bit more special though or you like more color next to your face, an added statement necklace makes a little black dress outfit that much more fun!

For daytime, gray is a lovely understated color. Great to combine with all sorts of colors as I showed you earlier, but also fabulous with understated black and white. All you need is a statement necklace to give the outfit something special. The 2 statement necklaces above are among my favorites and would look great with these outfits.

As much as I love colorful statement necklaces, sometimes you just want your outfit to be understated and chic. The fashionable metal of the moment is rose gold which looks very chic with many colors. Wear it with black or white but also with nature tones as shown above.

It will also look really well with the current fashion color of dark red or this light brown (both looks are from Zara). Choose which jewelry suits your outfit best. Sometimes all you need is a bracelet and earrings. As a general rule I would stick to a maximum of 3 pieces.

I was fortunate enough to get the opportunity to select 2 pieces from the Jewelry to your Doorstep collection and I will show you how I wore those in upcoming articles! Right now, get close to 30% off your order when you use the code 40plus at checkout!
