To be honest, I have never been one for everyday dainty jewelry, though most women are. By everyday dainty jewelry, I mean one small charm necklace you have had for years. Recently, this meaning has been taken for a twist.
Fashionistas, like this one pictured, have started layering and layering their light necklaces. These are not your typical girly charm necklaces. They spell out quirky words, have odd objects dangling from them and even hold small shining gems. I don’t know why someone hasn’t thought of this sooner but more power to whoever did, because trust me; my neck has sure been beaten by an overkill of heavy bibs and chunky encrusted necklaces.
Going to class every day should not always call for a multi-colored choker to amp up an outfit. By layering several strands you can get the shine and flourish with anything from a dress to a T-shirt without overdoing it. Statement jewelry will be bowing out to these delicate trinkets. With so many charms of choice you are now able to show more personality. You could be subtle and serious or ridiculous and quirky. So feel free to pile it all on without over-working your outfits and over-straining your necks.
Thankfully, so many stores have caught onto this movement. Any Fashionista can find what they are looking for and search through so many options. If you were just as blessed to learn all of your life lessons from Carrie Bradshaw on Sex and the City like I was, get personal and custom order your name online. You could even take a cue from the Fashionista above and latch on a quirky word like “meow” or take the classic route with “love”. On top of that, look for a charm to add to your spree of strands. You can pick anything from a buffalo to a banana.
So, to put it delicately…latch onto this trend and quick!
