Necklaces

I have loved the statement necklace trend for quite some time! More and more stores are running with the idea of having big, gaudy jewelery in their lines. It just can add so much to an outfit, especially if you feel your outfit needs just a little something more! Another look that had peaked my interest is the layering of long necklaces. It give a delicate look to a basic outfit. It can be paired with a white tee and jeans or a maxi skirt and plain tank, to give your outfit some more details and depth.Below are my favorite stores and my hand-picked pieces that are available now! But first let’s get the basics down!

Ideas on how to wear these necklaces:

-Typically the website will have the models showing off their jewels so you can get an idea from there
– With the bigger necklaces, wear your hair up. This will give you clean lines and let that bauble take center stage
– Keep it minimal. You don’t want your necklace to get lost in the rest of your outfit
– Wear bold colors and get a little crazy! Isn’t that the point of costume jewelry?
– Try buttoning your blouse all the way to the top so your necklace can give that collar effect
– Use it to highlight your chest! If the necklace lays just above, NOT TOO LOW, it will draw the eye to your chest and collarbone in a non skanky way!
– When layering try to have one simple necklace in the equation, use that to highlight the bigger necklace. Or even try two simple necklaces together.
-When layering longer, thinner necklaces, try to keep them a few inches apart in length. If they are all the same you won’t be able to pick out the different pieces. So maybe wear a 36″, 32″ and a 30″
– Remember, work with your lines and tops. If you have a low round collar you can fill that with a giant necklace. If you have a higher, chunkier neckline, try to wear the longer  more delicate necklaces.
