Some of my favorite pieces of jewelry are those that cannot only be paired with a cocktail dress but also with a tank top and a jean jacket. Versatility is crucial when purchasing accessories. I always aim to invest in pieces that I will be able to wear time and time again for different occasions and with various pieces. A perfect example of this type of accessory is the crystal necklace. The clear color and countless unique cuts are clean and sophisticated for a daytime look or for a date night.
This Fashionista completed her summer look with a circular cut crystal necklace. The color palette of this ensemble is classic and clean blue and white. However, the texture of the jean jacket paired with with the playful polka-dots of the skirt ensure that this Fashionista is far from boring or basic. The simplicity of the look is what makes it so chic and perfect for the heat of summer. Then to top it all off, she incorporates a bold necklace which plays off of the circular patterned skirt and supplies some sparkle to her look.
Big or small, this accessory will never cease to add some shine to an ensemble. That is why is can so easily transition from day to night. It can complement a basic T-shirt and add more texture and depth. However, it can also round off a date night cocktail dress by adding some shine and some glamour. No matter how you pair it, it will never cease to brighten up your look.
