Want to be remembered for your sartorial style? Elegance is an attitude, so herald your arrival with a statement necklace

Make a statement with this Sussan facet necklace and Scanlan Theodore top.

GIORGIO Armani once said “elegance is not about being noticed, its about being remembered.  But what woman doesnt want to be noticed? 

The best way to be noticed – and remembered (sartorially speaking, of course) – is to wear something that makes a statement or becomes a talking point. 

So if  the new season designer bag, dress or shoes are beyond your budget, a more affordable way to make a statement is with a statement necklace. A surefire way to make a simple outfit look fabulous.

Well, truth be told, every woman needs a collection of statement pieces – necklaces, cuffs, bracelets, earrings and rings. And as the name suggests, statement (or costume) jewellery has to be big and look expensive, but it doesnt have to cost a fortune to make an impression. Nor do they have to be real.

Dressed up for the boardroom or a night on the town, or dressed down with jeans at the weekend, a statement necklace is a great way to inject some fun and personality into your outfit. And if you want to take it up a notch, layer on with another complementary necklace or two ... a couple of large cuffs ... or with some oversized chandelier-style earrings ... or a fabulous cocktail ring (or three). 

However, a word of warning: Dont wear everything at once. Choose one or two pieces only and make a statement with them – two pieces such as cuffs and rings, rings and necklace, necklace and cuffs, cuffs and earrings. 

So, go on ... make a statement!
