How I Effortlessly Styled My Statement Necklace with a Casual Outfit


Casual outfit with a statement necklace


Oversize jewelry and statement necklaces are everywhere this season, and I immediately jumped on board with the trend. They’re not only a great way to express your personality, but a statement necklace will instantly take your outfit from basic to extraordinary by making it the focal point. Don’t think that statement jewelry is just for dressy occasions. You can elevate your casual outfits with a statement necklace too. Here’s how.

Clara Williams Jewelry

I love supporting women-owned businesses, and I’m excited to introduce you to Clara Williams. Clara graduated from Harvard’s MBA program with a career in technology, and metalsmithing has always been one of her passions. So when her friends and family took notice of her unique, one-of-a-kind pieces, she embraced that opportunity, and the Clara Williams Company was born.



Inspired by color, her travels, and nature, Clara takes high-quality materials and handcrafts them into wearable works of art in her Chicago showroom. One of the unique details I love about Clara Williams’s jewelry is the magnetic element. Not only does a magnetic clasp make it even easier to get ready, but it also allows you to switch out centerpieces for a personalized look effortlessly. Mixing and matching styles allow for endless possibilities.

Large link jewelry makes a statement on its own or mixed with other pieces. I’m wearing Clara’s Sheridan Double Strand Necklace with the Mother of Pearl Petal Centerpiece. A 16″ choker style necklace goes with almost every type of neckline, and I love that you can wear this versatile gold chain as I have here or long. Fun side note, her necklaces are named after Chicago streets. How cool is that?

How to Shop Clara Williams Jewelry

Designed to feel like home, you’ll find unusual treasures sourced from Clara’s extraordinary travels in her showroom. You can follow her pieces from raw stone to a breath-taking statement with a personal tour of her remarkable Metalsmithing Studio. You’ll also receive complimentary services such as personalized styling and a private shopping experience. If you are not local to Chicago, you can experience the showroom with remote styling sessions or virtual store visits. And, when you visit, make sure to use my promo code JILL15 for 15% off your Clara Williams purchase.


Style Tips for Wearing a Statement Necklace:

1 – Wear a statement piece that feels personalized to you. It will give you an extra confidence boost.

2 – Less is more. Wear a statement necklace that compliments your outfit, not overpowers it. My necklace stands out in my classic black and white outfit.

3 – Keep a balance with your other jewelry. Think stud earrings or one bracelet instead of a stack to pull the entire look together.

4 – Don’t distract from your statement necklace. Avoid other embellishments near your neckline.
