ALL IN THE DETAILS: Make A Statement

Despite small trinkets here and there, I have never been a big fan of jewelry. Sure I love diamonds (they’re a girl’s best friend after all), but I have never been one to sport gaudy jewelry. Despite this, I have grown to love statement necklaces and believe they should be added to the list of fashion staples.

I often find that I am at loss for ways to transition my simple daytime garments to nighttime ensembles without being over the top and flashy. I want to make a lasting impression, or should I say statement, without having to completely revamp my daytime attire. My solution? A statement necklace. Statement necklaces are great because they can be worn with virtually anything, whether you want to glam up a T-shirt or dress. You can use statement necklaces to add an edgy feel to an otherwise soft look or to mix in a feminine touch to a rock-chic outfit. Chunky necklaces are also a fantastic way to keep up with the current trends, whether that be pearls or bright colors.

This Fashionista sure makes a statement with her gorgeous necklace! She rocks a simple black fitted dress paired with a sophisticated gold necklace. The necklace takes the look from classy to more exciting and glamorous. While I enjoy matching my shoes and jewelry, I love that this Fashionista opted out of this trend and added a splash of color and elegance to the look with a pair of red suede wedges. She’s ready to paint the town!

How To: Just purchased an adorable little black dress, but feel like it’s too simple to be worn alone? Try adding a colorful statement necklace! A big necklace is a great way to tie together a look and add some flare.
