Statement pieces are everywhere now and can help transform outfits of any caliber. Use this mint stone statement necklace to add some refreshing color to any spring ensemble.
Mint has been a signature staple color for a couple of years now but it is still here to stay. This shade provides a refreshing addition to any ensemble, brightening up your look with minimal, classy effort. It works to lighten an outfit while also adding that hint or splash of color. It’s perfect for using as an accent, whether it be a single statement piece like a blazer or a pointed toe shoe, or even a statement necklace. Necklaces, jewelry and other accessories are great for when it comes to adding color to an ensemble to create balance or when adding depth and texture. These pieces can be used to stand out on their own, to help bring out specific elements of your outfit or can work as inspiration for the outfit itself.
This mint stone statement necklace can work in many ways. One of the simplest ways to wear it is with a basic outfit. If you’re wearing your favorite tee and jeans, this necklace can add some color and class, instantly jazzing up your overall look. Wearing it with light neutral colored basics works best, especially if you’re looking to make a simple outfit look more purposeful. Additionally, this accessory goes well with other classic basics like the ever popular little black dress. By adding similar jewelry, whether of the same color, simple gold, or even the entire matching jewelry set can bring the entire outfit together. This will help add a sufficient amount of color that is perfect for the spring and the coming summer. A dress with a simple, low neckline or one that is sleeveless works best. This way, the attention is drawn to the necklace, allowing it to work its magic.
Other colors work just as well. A warm toned ensemble using warm golds, browns, beiges and similar shades accent the gold in the necklace, allowing the mint stones to offset your look beautifully. This way, the mint stones stand out but the gold also ties in the rest of the outfit by mirroring those similar, warm shades. Alternatively, you can use the mint of the stone insets to bring out any mint or similar shades that are used in a pattern or print you happen to be wearing, whether it is a patterned top, a printed pant or embellished clutch or shoe.
Pieces like this can help maximize your wardrobe this spring and summer. Use it to accent a formal or professional outfit or let it help you add oomph to any of your basic ensembles.
