ALL IN THE DETAILS: Beaded Statement

If any beauty “rule” is actually to be kept, it is the one which dictates that less is more. Sometimes, the best thing you can do is keep it simple. Adding an unexpected accent to a sleek silhouette continually does the trick. When they say that the devil is in the details, they mean that the most beautiful and complex part of an outfit can sometimes be a singular eye catching accoutrement, and statement necklaces are the perfect fit.

This Fashionista focused all the attention on her bright beaded necklace by pairing it with a mint green peplum top, dark blue jeans and a pair of silver stilettos. By keeping her other accessories to a minimum, her necklace stands out and adds a touch of flair to an otherwise elegant ensemble. When donning a bold piece, it is best to keep the rest of the look sleek and relaxed so as to avoid veering into over-the-top territory.

This necklace has faceted stones in vibrant shades that could look perfect peeking out from under the collar of an Oxford shirt, while this one, with its chains and stones, can toughen up a pastel skirt and top combination. This eye-catching rhinestone collar will add some mystery and charm to a chambray shirt.

How To: One of the easiest ways to style a statement necklace is to throw it on over your favorite little black dress. A chunky necklace layered with a classic mini is the perfect way to be the star of your soiree.
