Statement jewelry is extravagant but so easy to wear.  Just let it do the job – make a statement!  Keep the rest of your outfit simple to let the piece of jewelry have center stage. 

necklace | Lanvin for H&M {similar}
dress | Ann Taylor {I like this}
heels | Lanvin for H&M {I like these and dreaming of these and these}

The red necklace really pops with a simple black strapless dress and stud earrings.  I left my hair down.  However, wearing an up-do really makes this necklace say “Look at me”!  Again, the theory applies to any piece of statement jewelry.  Keep the rest simple

{I was lucky to get this necklace.  My friend Q of the fabulous q9y8 blog snagged this at her H&M and sent it to me from Germany.  Thank you again Q!}

This post inspiration came from the sister duo, Tiffany and Jen, who started their own line of jewelry named T+J Designs.  They introduced a style challenge {where you give style advice on how to wear jewelry} and the prize is a gorgeous set of jewelry.  You don’t have to be a blogger to win.  Check out the rules here!
