Donning stylish watch trends is an excellent way to add some pizazz to your outfit while keeping track of the time. Furthermore, you shouldn't be afraid to upgrade your wardrobe with statement accessories. Bold, chunky accessories are super fun and can help you take otherwise minimalistic looks to the next level. One advantage of wearing chunky jewelry is that it can make you look more stylish even if you didn't really spend much time styling your look (via The Zoe Report).


Are you looking for some inspiration for how to flaunt such intense pieces? If you search #chunkyjewelry on Instagram, you'll find a plethora of thick statement rings and dramatic necklaces. There are so many different types of chunky jewelry that there's an accessory for everyone, whether you're searching for something girly, boho-chic, early 2000's-inspired, or a little of each. However, it's crucial to choose the right pieces for your outfits and style them properly to avoid clashing with your look.

How to rock chunky rings

Wearing chunky rings is an excellent way to start experimenting with statement jewelry because it won't be as much of a focal point in your overall look as a necklace — but can still turn heads. Thick rings look stunning on their own and are fun to stack if you want to get creative, per The Zoe Report. These types of rings can complement low-key, monochromatic outfits or more glamorous looks.


If you're on the hunt for a chunky ring that will elevate any outfit in your closet, Who What Wear recommends Mejuri's Charlotte Bold Ring. Available for just below $100, this statement ring is made of gold vermeil and has a glowing rating of 4.7 stars. Moreover, if your favorite color is green, you should look into the Forest Ring in Green Onyx, selling at Bonito for $60. This chunky ring features a design of six green petite squares which would beautifully complement a dark green nail polish. 

Or, if you're living for the Y2K revival trend, Who What Wear also suggests the Rosie Smiley Ring, which features a big pink smiley face design and is available for only $12 at Friends NYC. On the other hand, if you desire an ultra-thick ring that's minimalistic in design, you can't go wrong with the NEST Jewelry Hammered Ring, available for $95 at Nordstrom.


How to flaunt a chunky necklace

Chunky necklaces are another fashionable option if you want to add a daring accessory to your wardrobe. Although people frequently use bold jewelry to dress up their looks, you can also wear these pieces with your more relaxed, everyday outfits, per Pretty Designs. Furthermore, it's crucial to think about the neckline you'll be wearing with your necklace — it should be high or low. Anything in between could lead to an awkward look that just doesn't hang well.


If you're ready to invest in a statement necklace, Love to Know named the Kenneth Jay Lane Satin Gold-Plated Hammered Bib Necklace the best overall choice because you can wear it with a wide variety of outfits and it looks so chic. You can purchase this dramatic necklace from Amazon for around $250. The outlet additionally recommended the Coiris Boho Wooden Beaded Bib Necklace as a significantly less expensive choice. Available on Amazon for less than $20, this eye-catching necklace comes in a plethora of hues.

Chunky bracelets are lots of fun, too

Although many people most frequently think of chunky rings or necklaces when talking about statement jewelry, you should never underestimate the power of a stylish statement bracelet, especially during the warm weather when your wrists are exposed. According to Julio Jewelry, you should get creative by flaunting your bracelets on both arms rather than just one or try wearing bracelets with hues that match the clothes you'll be wearing. And just like how you can stack your rings, you can stack bracelets to showcase your chunky piece!


Anyone who loves the color blue should check out the Aurelie Bidermann Diana Bangle. This navy blue bracelet features a unique twisted design and is available at 24S for around $320, per Who What Wear U.K. Or, if you're on the hunt for an edgy, or dare I say kinky option based on how you interpret it, the Padlock Leather Bracelet is an alluring choice that you can purchase at Mulberry for about $170.

So, are you ready to revamp your wardrobe with a new chunky ring, necklace, or bracelet — or all of them?
