In these cold winter months, it can be easy to focus on boots, coats, hats, and gloves as the standard “cold weather accessories.” This doesn’t mean though, that we should forget about the accessories underneath. Even during the snowiest of blizzards, a statement piece of jewelry will keep you feeling all warm and fuzzy about your fabulous sense of style.
This Fashionista is the perfect example. Her all black and white ensemble is chic all by itself, but is taken to the next level with the addition of a statement necklace. Although comfy and casual, this Fashionista’s necklace helps add an element of thought to her wardrobe. On her way to a lunch date, the extra sparkle helps her stand out and show her unique sense of style.
A statement necklace is also a great way to help transition your wardrobe from season to season. Although it is still chilly out, new spring arrivals in stores can make you want to wear shorts in 30-degree weather. Accessories can help ease the pain of having to wait. Her light purple necklace is a great transition piece because of its gorgeous pastel shade.
Even though her necklace looks expensive, statement jewelry is the best way to make maximum impact on a minimum budget. For example, you can buy a variety of great statement pieces at BaubleBar in pretty spring colors for under $50 (some great options here, here and here). Another good option is CUSP by Neiman Marcus – prices can get pretty high for jewelry, but with some digging you can find gorgeous pieces suited for a college budget (some ideas here and here). A statement necklace truly is the perfect accessory any time you need a little extra sparkle.
