What to Wear if You’re Feeling Bold

There comes a time in everyone’s life when they have to ask themselves what to wear on a day when they need a pop of extra personality to represent themselves. These are the fashion choices that step out of the box and daringly go where your everyday choices may stop short of.


Whether you’re going to work, out shopping, attending a formal event, or having a fun night out, it’s important to keep your style you. It may take a little bit of getting used to, but most people grow to love their statement-making style—at least on special occasions!


We’ve put together a fun showcase of bold items that could liven up any wardrobe.


What to Wear if You Want to Make a Statement

There are four major points to any look: your jewelry, your bag, your shoes, and your layers! If you’re wondering what to wear from each of these categories, don’t worry—we’ve got you covered, just keep reading.


To keep your look classic yet bold, try using just one or two statement items per look. As Coco Chanel said “always take one accessory off before you leave the house”—and you’ll always look your best without being overdone.


A Statement Necklace

One of the most popular accessories is the statement necklace. Perfect for dressing up your all black outfit, or emboldening your patterned outfit, these necklaces are meant to step away from the norms of your classic diamond-and-gold designs.

These necklaces are chunky, sparkly, and sassy. Perfect to amp up your workplace attire, these necklaces would go perfectly with a solid color, like black or maroon, to modernize your staple wardrobe pieces. In fact, some of the most popular statement necklaces are bronze-toned, making them the perfect accessory to pair with almost any outfit!

A Daring Pair of Heels

Nothing can finish off an outfit like a good pair of heels can. Sure, we all hope they’re comfortable, but there probably isn’t a single lady out there who hasn’t put style first at one point or another.
That’s why a daring pair of heels is the perfect way to liven up any outfit with a burst of your personality. Lady Gaga, known for her eccentric taste in fashion, popularized bold heels as the “it” accessory, and we can’t help but want to keep that trend alive.

Our favorite “bold” pairs? This punk pair of Louboutin Botticellita pumps, the Chanel Fantasy ankle booties, and these Louis Vuitton Cancan platform pumps, which have one of the most interesting heels we’ve seen so far!

A Unique Bag

Perhaps our favorite way to jazz up any outfit, a bold bag is the perfect accessory to add a pop of personality into your look. Whether you need more space to carry your essentials, or you’re looking to carry the minimum while maximizing your style statement, there’s a bold bag with your name on it.

Keeping with the classically Chanel design, this tweed Girl bag is a perfect everyday bag with a twist. The cute “patched shirt” design is playful yet overtly “Chanel.” Similarly, the completely unique design of the Chanel Hula Hoop bag is a statement in and of itself. Designed with haute couture in mind, this bag is a beautiful mix of red and white leather that allows the completely circular shape (handles and all) to speak for itself.


And if Louis Vuitton is more your style, we’ve picked two of our favorite statement pieces from Vuitton’s collections that can spice up any look. Whether you’re looking to walk on the wild side with a fur LV bag that’s still beautifully emblazoned with iconic Louis Vuitton fliers or want to make a more traditional statement with the unique denim design of the limited-edition Pleaty Raye bag, these are pieces that can transition from day to night with ease while maintaining that instantly-recognizable Louis Vuitton style.


A Funky-Chic Jacket

It’s safe to say that we love Chanel—really love Chanel. But it takes a special je ne sais quoi to rock a pastel tweed jacket with unfinished edges, like this one.
Our styling recommendation is to keep things simple yet edgy: a fitted black dress would be the perfect match to balance out the gentle-yet-bold pop of personality this jacket offers through both its color palette and design.
