As we head into mid-February and are still faced with weeks and weeks of winter many students on campus, including myself, are starting to get sluggish with their fashion choices. I’m seeing more sweaters and sweatshirts and less dresses with tights and booties. Fortunately, I stumbled upon this week’s Fashionista on a cold, gray day and she reminded me that something as simple as a statement necklace can transform an outfit to something special.
I absolutely love this Fashionista’s gold and black statement necklace. Gold and black is such a timeless pair and really pop against one another. The big stones surrounded by the gold geometric shapes naturally draw the eye to the necklace and create a chic look for this Fashionista. A statement necklace can elevate an everyday outfit into something extraordinary. If you want a change from gold and black, take a look at this piece from Anthropologie; the flowers with gem petals are so delicate yet still chunky and bold. Or perhaps you’d like to stick with the geometric theme in which case you should check out this statement necklace with multiple square blossoms.
Finish your look with classic pieces such as a black peacoat, black leather boots and a black leather bag like this week’s Fashionista. This will allow for the necklace to pop and stand out against the ensemble. This week, don’t be shy about making a statement!
Spotted: Christian Dior’sr spring 2014 ready-to-wear runway show featured multiple beaded statement necklaces that popped against the clean lines of the featured clothes.
