ALL IN THE DETAILS: Statement Necklaces

Happy November, readers! I hope you all had a spooktacular Halloween because now it’s that time of the year again when gift shopping, big winter coats and school final projects begin. The start of something we already know and love, holiday season. This time of year truly is a magical time. Everyone is out and about, but mostly it is the time to appreciate the company of your friends and family and remember the great things you do have in life. I can go on and on about the holidays but let’s focus on the now, before I get ahead of myself.

I know you’re probably wondering, how is this Fashionista wearing shorts in the fall? Well, in New York, we’ve had quite a few warm weeks as of late. This Fashionista is wearing a short sleeve, dark-washed button-down denim shirt with white shorts and a pair of vintage sandals. I love the detail she added of the socks to the sandals, such an adorable vintage touch. That small detail really stood out to me while walking to class that I had to take a shot of it. However, one detail I couldn’t help thinking about is statement necklaces, when did this trend begin? Where did it originate?

Some of the earliest statement jewelry was actually found in India and ancient Egypt. Dangling earrings, collar necklaces and thick rings were all fashion trends. Statement necklaces are forms of an artistic expression and the bigger they are, the better. Anyone can dress it up or down with a either a T-shirt or a blouse. It will always present itself, no matter what you’re wearing. Statement necklaces have the ability to completely transform an outfit and that’s an impeccable gift.

How To: Ever have those moments when you’re getting ready to go out and your outfit looks great but it’s missing something? Then you’re in need of a statement necklace. Next time you’re going with your friends or a nice family dinner, add this wonderful detail to your outfit and you won’t be able too leave the house without one ever again.
