Reader: Chunky necklaces okay with suits?

Chunky necklaces okay to wear with business suits?

Yes.

You’re not talking about crazy large necklaces that fluff up around your neck right? Okay good. I’d try experimenting with a couple of styles with a business suit.

Keeping it too delicate (for me), is a bit too boring and conservative.

I like the look of a bright, bold necklace with a conservative suit. But then again, I’m more of an accessories girl than anything.


I would however, refrain from anything too bright, too colourful (I’m talking a rainbow in a necklace made out of huge chunks of papier-mache), or anything that overpowers the entire outfit.

Instead of a a classic chunky pearl necklace with a suit, you can see that the shape of the chunky necklace works, so why not try it in a set of bright thick stones? Or something more elaborate?

You want to keep it in line with the suit’s curves, slightly conservative (stick to a colour or a shade of colours in the same family), and to not have the necklace enter the room before you.
