Celebs sporting statement jewels

Statement jewelry is the perfect way to accessorize many an ensemble. Though it has been presumed that such ornamentation is saved for formal occasions, statement pieces can in fact complement almost any article of clothing. From a classic white tee and jeans to a monochromatic shift dress, statement jewelry adds a pop of color, class, and playful elegance to a fashionista’s wardrobe. Following are several suggestions of how to pair these costume elements with daily attire.

A Not So Plain White Tee: Accessorized with bold chandelier earrings, a simple white tee is given new life. While a t-shirt and jeans may seem like your average, run-of-the-mill daywear, worn with vibrant, eye-catching earrings, the ensemble is both hip and totally wearable, not to mention exponentially cooler.

Dare to Stand Out: A bubble necklace is certainly a way to catch someone’s attention, and for all the right reasons. Paired with a solid, brightly colored sheath, a bold necklace earns an A+ for creativity and incorporating this season’s fixation with brights. Best worn with confidence and a genuine smile.

Statement necklaces rule the runway

Go for Gold: With the 2012 Olympics just around the corner, the globe’s fixation on gold isn’t going anywhere. For us lay people who will not be competing for these prestigious medals of honor and achievement, a classic gold bangle is the perfect way to show pride in our nation’s potential capabilities while also looking seriously chic. Pair with a sheer blouse and pants for an accessorized update on office attire, or take this look out to lunch or dinner with friends.

Bring on the Cocktail: No, I am not referring to a beverage, but rather the form of finger adornment. Cocktail rings are a discrete way of incorporating statement jewelry into your look. Since one’s hands are usually not the center of attention when piecing together an outfit, it’s a change of pace to play them up (and show off your killer manicure, as well) with a visually stunning ring. Cocktail rings add pizzazz to casual daywear, but can also be worn as a complement to a flirty frock or lace mini for a night on the town.

Watch Me: An oversized watch is easily the most wearable (and useful) of all the aforementioned statement jewelry. What other accessory assures both your punctuality and fashion credibility? Plus, it’s incredibly versatile, and can easily be transitioned from day to night. Looks like this timepiece is a keeper.

We’d love to know: what is your favorite piece of statement jewelry? How do you wear it?
