Although I’m more of a silver girl myself, it’s hard to ignore how popular gold jewelry is lately. One notable style of gold jewelry I’ve been seeing is the chunky rope/chain necklaces. The trend definitely isn’t for everyone (my friend Amber wore one on St. Patrick’s Day and was called “Mr. T” by our male friend all day long), it is a fun way to add style to a plain tee. Here are a few of my favorite chunky gold necklaces and some tips for pulling off the look.
How to Wear Chunky Gold Necklaces
Make It the One Statement Piece
The term “statement piece” itself, to me at least, means the one piece of jewelry that you wear to make a statement. If you’re piling on lots of necklaces, bracelets, and rings alongside one of these chunky gold pieces, it will lose its luster. So when wearing one of these necklaces, keep the rest of your jewelry simple and understated.
Match It to Your Makeup
To really bring out the pop of gold in your necklace, try out a similar shade on your face. Whether it’s a light wash of a shimmery gold eyeshadow or maybe some gold nail polish, you’ll help accent the necklace. Bronze cheeks and a pinky-nude lip complete the look.
Compliment the Gold with Your Outfit Colors
I always bring up the color wheel in posts like this, but it’s for a reason! Certain colors simply look best with other complimentary colors, and the color wheel is an easy way to get ready for the day. Colors that look nice with gold include black (like a little black dress), an emerald green, and reds.
