April 7th, 2016 at 2:00am

Spring is finally here, which means it is time to stow away your winter closet! This includes packing up all of your cold weather statement pieces such as heavy coats, sweaters and scarves. You may wonder how it is possible to continue making a statement within your spring and summer outfits, when all of your favorite go-tos are packed away for the season. Luckily, there are still many ways of making heads turn when putting a warm weather wardrobe together.

A great way to pull a spring look together is by drawing attention to one specific area of the outfit, this creates different proportions and makes a statement. Here, this Fashionista uses a bold silver necklace to add detail and dimension to her look. She adds just the right amount of accessory to her outfit and keeps the rest of the look simple, pairing an off-the-shoulder top with a simple pair of light-wash distressed jeans and canvas shoes. The combination of simplistic clothing and daring jewelry makes for a great way to stand out and remain on trend during this spring season.

How To: This trend is a very easy one to accomplish. Statement necklaces are great accessories for uplifting your look. They can be found at almost any women’s clothing or accessory store, but if you’re looking for a larger variety of options; Charming Charlie’s, Forever 21 and H&M all have a very wide and inexpensive selection. However, if necklaces aren’t what you prefer and you want the look to be a bit more casual, you can always swap out the necklace for a light scarf with a bold pattern to give the same proportional effect while remaining trendy and within season.
