Every Woman Needs a Statement Necklace

Posted in:

Every Woman Needs a Statement Necklace

Share

My dear friend, Annie, recently complimented my necklace, explaining that she doesn't often wear them herself. I'm very passionate about wardrobe staples that every woman should have in her closet: a white blouse, a pencil skirt, and an LBD. But there's another piece in which we should all invest: a fabulous statement necklace.

Unlike an in-your-face shirt or jacket, this attention-grabbing jewelry can be worn with a multitude of outfits. It can dress up a t-shirt and jeans, and best of all, no matter how your body may change, a statement necklace will always fit.

Bold necklaces are also a great way to subtly incorporate trends into your look. If neon colors are outside your comfort zone, a brightly-colored necklace will lend a fun pop to your outfits.

I know steal-the-show necklaces can be intimidating — not to mention heavy — so if you don't usually include them in your daily outfits, start small. A longer necklace with delicate beads transitions easily from day to night, and looks as striking with a casual top as it does with a dress. I prefer long necklaces and usually wear them layered. Don't worry about silver versus gold — I love mixing metals.

I recently splurged on a new statement piece — a J. Crew bubble necklace — and have already gotten a ton of use from (and compliments about) it. I've worn my necklace with dresses and jeans alike, and love how its over-the-top style and aqua color add an exclamation point to any outfit. It was definitely a worthy investment for my wardrobe!
