This week, my thoughts have turned to the Cosmo Blog Awards on Thursday and the perennial what-am-I-going-to-wear saga. Although it’s nothing new, just recently I’ve been thinking how the right accessory can take a multitude of outfits from safe to stylish in one easy step. A classic dress, casual tee’s and shirts of all kinds can be dressed up with a statement necklace and it just so happens that they remain top of the trends for the coming season.
Look for bib styles (shorter lengths that sit just below collar level with a concentration of detailing in that area,) false collars, jewels combined with mixed metals and you won’t go far wrong. I’ve rounded up a selection of my favourites ranging from throw-away-fashion to investment pieces.
Topshop Gem Collar £45 // Ice Glam necklace, Bauble Bar, $36 // Pearly Opalite necklace, H&M, £14.99 // Teardrop Crystal and tube pendant, Mawi at My-Wardrobe.co.uk, £450 // Three crystal square statement necklace, Anton Heunis at My-Wardrobe.co.uk, £351 // Blueberry Statement Collar, Accessorize, £18 // (Black) multi sparkle tube necklace, Miss Selfridge, £20 // Crystal Bee’s necklace with gemstones, Zara, £19.9 // Bright pink and rhinestone necklace, River Island, £18 //
Have you spotted any stunning necklaces lately? (I’m all ears) or is it a statement-step too far for you to try?
