Make a Statement (jewelry).

Posted on: June 16, 2015 by Yummo Mummo

One of the most common questions I get as a Wardrobe Stylist and Fashion Blogger is about how to accessorize.  People are always curious about rules / no rules / accessorizing OTT or not?

Well firstly, in my YummoMummo book, the number one rule in fashion is YOU HAVE TO FEEL JOY IN WHAT YOU ARE WEARING! So if you love to accessorize, go to town. If you like to keep it a little more understated, stick with minimal and you will still rock it. 

For me, the “joy” was in these earrings below…. 

I like to wear a statement piece any which way, either dressed casually or decked out in heels. Give me a plaid shirt or a black dress, I think the statement piece still works. 
I love the following combination. It gives me a chance to play with the neon, edgy trend of SS15. I found this necklace, not “supposed” to go with it, but I felt it did. You’ll see the beads don’t marry in with the earrings but the color does so what is what TIES them together. 

Following I have played with some stacking. It’s the same necklace but in two different colors. Stack them alone or pair one with matching earrings. Fun. In the first picture, I could add some simple gold studs if I wanted to keep it simple with the earrings and still tie in the gold.
Following is a great chance to dabble with a SS15 trend. You’ve heard of the back/front earring? Well, check out the back/front necklace! The left necklace needs an open neck to see the detail and could be paired with some gold leaf earrings for that extra statement or a simple pair of gold studs. The one on the right looks like a pair of headphones. LOL. It had a matching bracelet but it made absolutely no sense when I put it on. I felt ZERO “joy”. 
I love the idea of pairing these earrings with the bracelets pictured. $5.99 for a set of 4 (either in all gold OR gold/turquoise. These earrings are SUCH a statement and quite long, they would almost touch a necklace if I was wearing one, so for me, I think these are best worn with the bracelets. 

All pieces are inexpensive at $20 and below. Available at H&M. 


  • Statement earrings / statement  bracelet
  • Statement necklace / less statement earrings / statement bracelet
  • Statement necklace / statement bracelet
  • Statement necklace / less statement bracelet
  • Statement necklace / statement earrings – especially if you are trying to get dressed up and have a solid color up top to not compete with all the bling!


  • Play with stacking. Stacking necklaces, stacking bracelets for what’s known as an ‘arm party’.
  • Play with the latest trends such as front back earrings, ear jackets, neon colors, front/back necklaces.
  • Floral necklace with a striped tee is a lot of fun and a great chance to play with mixing patterns.
  • When jewelry tarnishes, try spray painting gold or silver paint. I have done this on less expensive pieces and it’s done a treat.
  • Don’t hang metals on door handles etc, I use wooden hooks. Also don’t spray perfume on your neck as it will tarnish the metal, spray on clothes or wrist.

    Sometimes I wish I could wear earrings! I have my ears quite large, although I guess I could always hang them off of my tunnels! Great post! The colours are wonderful!

  6. I really like how well you have explained it all. I love to accessorize and I know many people are very apprehensive about it. Sometimes it is all you need to make an outfit.
