This outfit formula is easy to pull together. The solid columns of colour are streamlining and elongating, and can be created with various separates, or a dress. The stars of the show are the very large necklaces that make a strong statement and are the focal point of the outfit.
In the first example, black is worn from head to toe, but the tortoiseshell necklace breaks up the expanse of flat black and adds some texture. I can see animal print shoes that match the necklace work well too. Don’t feel bound to black for the solid column of colour. Any neutral or non-neutral is good.
Here a column of slate grey is created with a two-piece dress. Cognac sandals add warmth to the palette. The large silver necklace adds life and texture to the flat grey. I can see the outfit work well with silver shoes, or black to bookend the wearer’s hair. It’s the type of outfit that can work well in a warm Fall or Winter.
If you prefer breaking up the solid column of colour, you can create a vibe similar to the one below. It’s neutral, but has some high contrast. Unbutton a shirt or blouse and wear a large necklace inside the collar. I suspect that a longer neck will absorb the size of a large short necklace more easily than a shorter neck. Layer a topper over the lot. It’s also one way to add accessory pizzazz to a digital meeting.
