Bold look, bold accessories

Rep. Maxine Waters chose a conservative gray jacket and a very bold silver necklace for a House Judiciary Committee hearing on the proposed Comcast-NBC merger:

This necklace is a difficult piece to pull off, but Ms. Waters does it beautifully. It works for her because:

  • She has prominent facial features in proportion to the rest of her face. A prominent nose, full lips and big eyes balance out this bold pattern just below her face.
  • The rest of her outfit is very simple. The jacket and blouse are in neutral colors with very simple lines, allowing her necklace to become the focal point.
How do you pull off your favorite bold accessories?
