Chunky jewelry is an accessory that works well as a single piece of jewelry. If you plan to wear only one item of jewelry, a chunky necklace can sufficiently dress up an entire outfit.
Here are some ideas on how to wear chunky jewelry:
T-shirt and jeans: A chunky necklace can dress up a t-shirt and jeans to add color or personality or take the outfit from plain casual to dressy casual. Add a jacket and oversized handbag and you look ready for a lunch and shopping with the girls.
Sundress: Chunky necklaces with natural stones or shell or mixed media go well with sundresses. It can add a fun splash for romantic strolls down the beach.
Little black dress or red dress: Dressier chunky necklaces with gem stones or artsy shapes can look sharp with a little black dress or red dress.
Don't wear a chunky necklace with other necklaces because it may clash or look gaudy. The large necklace style is meant to be worn alone. While unnecessary, other types of jewelry such as earrings, rings and bracelets may also be worn.
Plastic chunky necklaces are often too casual to wear with more formal attire like a black dress.
Chunky necklaces work best with shirts with a scoop neck or a crew neck or strapless tops. Most chunky necklaces do not blend well with traditional blouses or turtlenecks.
