If you love the layering options that fall’s style brings, I am sure you are yearning for a way to incorporate some of those elements into a springtime look. It is too warm to wear most of the things we wore just a couple of months ago. Fall is my favorite season because of the layering and if you’re anything like me you are trying to incorporate some of those styles as much as you can. This fall chunky knits were a big trend, from sweaters to hats and of course scarves. The spring season alternative to a chunky scarf is a chunky necklace.
This Fashionista has paired her chunky necklace with a tank top and wide leg jeans. The color of her outfit is primarily blue, mimicking the necklace. This homogenous approach lends itself to be very effective when wearing a chunky necklace. There are not any colors that draw attention toward that piece and away from the necklace. The only other color that she has incorporated is brown in various shades. This break of color can be seen in her leather bracelets, shoulder bag and flip flops. Notice that her earrings have been kept to a minimal and her neckline is clean. Chandelier earrings or big hoops should be left in the jewelry box when wearing a chunky necklace. You should also shy away from anything that adorns the neckline of your outfit, such as ruffles and rosettes.
The beauty of a chunky necklace lies in the accessibility. It is quite easy to find them online and in stores but it is even easier to obtain the look by using items that you already own. All of those long necklaces you own can be knotted and wrapped to form a beautiful chunky necklace. There are also several D.I.Ys that can show the effectiveness of using inexpensive items to come up with your own creation. This is a fun and easy way to spice up any look. As fashionable college students on a budget, where can you go wrong?
