ALL IN THE DETAILS: Make A Statement

As if the winter months weren’t dragging on enough, the recent news of six more weeks of winter has us feeling drab and wishing for warmer weather. The last thing on our mind is putting effort into an outfit for class when we can easily throw on sweats before running back to our warm dorm rooms. With students inclined to wear dull colors, college campuses in the northeast are quickly turning into a sea of black boots, gray sweaters and black coats.  The easiest way to add a pop of color to your outfit? A bright and trendy statement necklace!

I spotted this Fashionista from a mile away walking to class—her bold statement necklace stands out against her plain burgundy sweater and black leggings.  Her outfit is simple yet fashion-forward and can be worn on a variety of occasions.  She shows us how easy it is to take basic articles of clothing and turn them into an outfit worth noticing! An outfit that would otherwise be mundane becomes effortlessly chic with the addition of a playful statement necklace.

Statement necklaces are more popular now than ever and can be found almost anywhere. They come in a variety of shapes, colors and textures and can easily be dressed up or down.  Pair one with jeans and a sweater for class or a little black dress for a semi-formal dance!

How To: Grab a pair of your favorite leggings and a lightweight sweater. Bump up your look with a fun statement necklace, and you’re ready to dazzle your peers around campus!
