Out with the old and in with the new! Summer is approaching and with that comes some closet cleaning, frivolous looks—and of course, some new jewelry! This warm season is great for experimenting with different outfits and stepping out of your comfort zone. I find dressing in the summer a little bit more difficult because you can’t layer, so you definitely have to get creative.

An interesting way to add attention to your outfit is to wear colorful and gallant accessories. Right now, big and bold necklaces are a major trend. I’ve been seeing some chic celebrities and famous style bloggers people wearing blouses, shirts and juxtaposing them with flamboyant neckpieces.

Bold jewels are usually worn with plain looks. However, you can also combine them with bright prints for a full-on stylish outfit.

This Fashionista wore a simple, floral patterned black dress. The prints on the dress are a combination of cool and warm colors: orange, white, brown and purple. However, the most important part of the look is the white necklace as it coincidently matches with the dress’s colors and the Fashionista’s sandal wedges. This particular item also seems large to the eye; however, it does not feel heavy once you wear it. This is important as it allows for the Fashionista to be comfortable and move around easily, whilst still feeling stylish. It’s the perfect statement piece.

It can be relatively easy to wear lovely and vivid necklaces. A nice trick is to perhaps match the accessory with a color you like on your outfit or your shoes, as this Fashionista did.
