You know when you’re down in the slumps and the only way to feel better is some retail therapy? Well, when you go on your next shopping spree adventure, add a new necklace to the list! I’m obsessed with the chunky necklace style, referred to as bib. They go with any top and make a simple outfit truly pop. The beauty of this Fashionista’s look lies in its simplicity. Her necklace is so bright and colorful against her white V-neck it’s like art on a white canvas. With these gloomy winter days we get in the habit of wearing dull colors, but no one wants to be stuck in a boring style!
Necklaces come in different styles, which gives us the opportunity to match it with any wardrobe need. Think about if you’re going to an interview. You might be wearing a ruffled white button up tucked into a black pencil skirt with black heels. Why not spice it up with a bib necklace from Francesca’s that will give your outfit more color and pizazz?! If your outfit already has color, like a blue or red dress, try rocking a pearl or gold necklace, that way your accessory will still make a statement without too much color. If you’re on the way to class and feel your outfit isn’t complete but you don’t want to be too gaudy, try a softer, thin necklace like the ones from Forever 21.
It’s never a sin to mix colors you wouldn’t expect to go together. Necklaces give you the opportunity to get out of your accessory comfort zone and try new things. I love the idea of mixing a mint green necklace with a light pink top, or an orange necklace and a navy blue cardigan like this Fashionista did. If you don’t want to be daring right away, do what she did and use a neutral color to tie them together like white or gray. From this Fashionista’s outfit, we see how just one accessory brings her outfit to life and allows her to stand out!
