ACCESSORIES REPORT: The Power of the Necklace

Accessories Report

A great necklace is perhaps one of the most important accessories any Fashionista, or even Fashionisto (hey, if he’s into it) can wear.  When you stand looking in a mirror at your outfit and start wondering, “Am I missing something?” it’s probably the lack of chained item around your neck. Necklaces have so much to offer to any outfit. They can dress up that slack outfit you threw on going to your 8:30, that dress you are wearing to go out that looks just a little plain and can overall just make your outfit look more chic.

When I saw this Fashionista I thought of one of my favorite actresses: Audrey Hepburn. While this Fashionista isn’t wearing the acclaimed black Givenchy dress, pearls or smoking cigarettes, she is wearing a Tiffany blue, collar necklace. So my mind might have gone through a million topics a second to come to that conclusion but really… what girls mind doesn’t?! What I loved about this Fashionista’s cream sweater and floral skirt combo was that they perfectly complemented each other; in fact, her entire outfit was the perfect balance to every piece. She looks put together yet effortless! Her blue collar necklace was a great pop of color to the cream of her sweater; it immediately pulled your eye without being the only thing you see! She paired her floral skirt with tights to brave the chilly weather. This Fashionista’s look was completed with a pair of black woven flats that were perfect for walking to class and a trendy tribal book bag that not only served its function as a schoolbook holder but also looked good doing it.

A collar necklace is the perfect way to subtly pull together an outfit, and there are so many different ways to do a collar necklace. You can go for a dainty and subtle look, large and chunky or bright and colorful.

Spotted: Céline showing us that simple collar necklaces will still be here in her spring 2014 collection.
