ACCESSORIES REPORT: It’s All in the Necklace

Accessories Report

I am a huge fan of neutral colors. They are timeless, easy and always conveniently match. Wearing a “pop” of any bright color rarely happens; that is way out of my comfort zone. So when I saw this Fashionista rocking a pop of turquoise with her neutral outfit I had to take some notes.

Today’s Fashionista is wearing a layered beaded turquoise necklace that makes her outfit complete and out of the ordinary. When you look at her outfit the first thing you notice is her necklace — it frames her look perfectly. Turquoise is such a beautiful color; it is girly but not so much so like hot pink would be. The beaded style of her necklace and the length gives a bohemian feel to the outfit. Her tortoise shell Ray-Bans pair well with the necklace, as they also gives a relaxed bohemian feel.

Her black kate spade new york cross-body bag is gorgeous, however it does not overshadow her necklace, which is her main stand out piece. Her black cork bottom sandal wedges complement her bohemian look as well. By keeping the rest of her outfit simple, nothing is competing with her necklace to stand out. Everything just looks perfectly balanced.

Today’s Fashionista got her unique necklace at a boutique in her hometown. I think local boutiques are great places to find interesting accessories that others do not have. Here is a similar one by Kenneth Jay Lane from the same boutique; it is a different style, but still just as cute. If you are a neutral lover like me then try adding touches of turquoise to your wardrobe. It will add liveliness and personality to your outfits.

Spotted: Turquoise is showing up all over Alexis Bittar’s spring 2014 jewelry collection. These earrings and this necklace are perfect for adding pops of turquoise into your spring wardrobe.
