How To Wear A Statement Necklace

At Carolily, we believe there is no right or wrong way to wear a Statement necklace. To us, they are a celebration of life, a means of expressing ourselves and a creative outlet. But, as we know from talking to our wonderful customers, not everyone knows where to start!

If you've ever thought to yourself that you can't wear a Statement necklace, that you're not sure how to style it or that they are too bold for you, we would love the opportunity to prove you wrong! We all have a statement to make, no matter how big or how small. 

We'll share our top five ways to wear a Statement necklace, but we invite you to email us if you have any questions. We are happy to bring you into our West Kelowna studio for a personal shopping experience, or a virtual one. We can help you select the perfect outfits for your Statement necklaces! 

5 Ways To Wear A Statement Necklace

  1. T-Shirt & Jeans

    Ahhhh, one of our favorite ways to rock a Statement necklace! Pairing a larger necklace with a basic t-shirt and jeans helps to elevate the look, while keeping it casual and comfortable. Try pairing your Statement necklace with some equally fabulous shoes or boots to kick up the cool factor! Donna is wearing the Jackeline and Donna Necklace.


  2. Little Black Dress

    Whether you're having a romantic dinner at home or out at a winery with your girlfriends, a little black dress never goes out of style. We prefer one that has subtle embellishments, like ruffles or an interesting hemline! Donna is wearing the Donna Necklace.


  3. Lounge Set

    The perfect combination of chic and comfort! Silk lounge sets are the perfect outfit to wear with Statement necklaces because they let the necklace be the focal point. We love a classic black lounge set, and will pair the pants with a fun bomber jacket or button up shirt for an entirely different look! Donna is wearing the Josian Necklace


  4. White Blouse & Your Favorite Pants

    We love a crisp, white blouse! There is something so strong and feminine about wearing one. We almost always pop the collar, as it helps to showcase the Statement necklaces we are wearing. With an open neck, it always allows you to layer different necklaces. Layering isn't just for delicate necklaces. Donna is wearing the Annabelleand Eliza Necklace.
  5. All White Everything

    An all white outfit will forever be a favorite of ours! Paired beautifully with colourful jewelry, or something silver and white, there are endless ways to style this outfit. Try pairing a more feminine skirt with some beautiful loafers! Donna is wearing the Ashley Necklace.

It's Up To You

Like we said in the beginning, how you wear your Statement necklace is entirely up to you! These are merely suggestions and a place for you to start! If you would like to schedule an in-person or virtual styling and personal shopping session, please email us at info@carolily.com. We cannot wait to see how you style your Statement jewelry!

Your Statement. Our Necklace.

Hello Connie,

Danielle here! Thank you so much for the kind words. Mom’s sense of style is certainly something that sets us apart!

Great minds think alike! We have already created a one-of-a-kind necklace for Dr. Bonnie and announced it last week. I’ll be sure to resend that newsletter next week in case the announcement was missed! We are very proud of the piece and cannot wait to see it on her.

Thank you again for taking the time to comment. Have a wonderful day!

Donna, I have been enjoying getting your emails and watching your business go from success to success. Congratulations on what you and Danielle have accomplished. When we were paddling together your style was always noticeable, even in a PFD!

Looking at your necklaces and this blog about wearing statement necklaces makes me think about our wonderful Dr. Bonnie Henry and her statement necklaces on which many people have commented. Have you thought of making a necklace in her honour? Perhaps you already have.

Warmest regards, Connie

Why This Was Our Last "Traditional" Black Friday
Why This Was Our Last "Traditional" Black Friday

As we bring our Black Friday Cyber Monday promotion to a close, we are overjoyed and thankful for the support you continue to show us. Like many other small businesses, this has been a tough financial year for us. Black Friday has allowed us to give thanks to our beloved community, attract new clients, and improve cash flow during our most expensive season. It is also an opportunity for you to save on a piece of jewelry you may have had your eye on for awhile.

With all that being said, this was the last "traditional" Black Friday promotion we will ever run and we'd like to explain why.

Our handcrafted jewelry is designed with self expression in mind! These pieces are meant to be an extension of your personality and sense of style.

While there is no right or wrong way to wear jewelry, we do need inspiration some days! Below, we have styled our Violette Necklace three different ways, using the same base outfit.
