My challenge for all Fashionistas out there is to find an accessory that matches your sparkling personality because this year, costume jewelry is bigger and better than ever. Vibrant jewel tones and glittering crystals are being sported everywhere this season. I firmly believe that the statement necklace is essential for every Fashionista’s closet. Use one to spruce up a casual outfit or put the finishing touch on your little black dress. With accessories like this you’ll never wear an understated look again.
This Fashionista keeps her ensemble neutral and lets her necklace do the talking. The gold mixed with brightly hued jewels makes for an eye-catching combination. Topping her outfit with a blazer gives this Fashionista an effortlessly polished and chic look. Stray away from circular stones and try out some rectangular gems for size.
As someone who gravitates towards various shades of black and gray, statement necklaces have become an important aspect of my style. Use jewelry with vibrant hues to offset a neutral color palette. No time for makeup? Throw on some gems to brighten up a low-maintenance look. Denim and rhinestones are a match made in fashion heaven. Button your blouse to the top to make your necklace really shine. If you’re afraid of an overpowering accessory, layer a jacket or blazer like this Fashionista does. Be on the lookout for standout items that bring out your individual style. Finding the perfect new piece is sure to make your 2014 shine.
