What Necklace to Wear With Big Earrings?

So, you've got these killer BIG earrings that scream "HERE I AM!" But now you're stuck wondering: what necklace do I wear?! We get it, it's a fine line between a symbiotic relationship and looking like you robbed a jewelry store. But fear not, we can help you find that elusive balance between even your biggest earrings and THE perfect statement necklace. It's like finding the yin to your yang, the peanut butter to your jelly, or the Beyoncé to your Jay-Z (okay, maybe that last one's a stretch). But you get the picture! Let's unravel this styling mystery and get you feeling balanced.

Understanding the Balance

Alright, let's talk about the delicate art of balancing those big earrings with the rest of your outfit. Think of your large statement earrings as the life of the party—they're loud, they're proud, and they're definitely making a statement. Now, the trick is to let them shine without overshadowing everything else you've got going on. It's like being the lead singer in a band—you want to stand out, but you still need your backup dancers (or in this case, your necklace) to complement your performance without stealing the spotlight.

Matching and contrasting shapes and colors are your best friends here. Picture this: you've got these bold, red statement earrings that could stop traffic. Now, instead of throwing on a necklace in the same shade and turning yourself into a human stop sign, why not opt for something in a complementary color that matches your strapless neckline or sweetheart neckline? Or, if you're feeling daring, go for a contrasting hue to add some spice to your ensemble. It's all about finding that perfect harmony between your earring style and your necklace, so you can strut your stuff with confidence wherever you go.
