I love them. Statement necklaces have become the go to piece for every recessionista fashion lover out there. They are making serious waves in the fashion world, as nothing says glam and elegance like a mighty piece of jewellery adorning your neck.
There are of course some general rules for Spring 2013 and the most important to note is that the bigger the better when it comes to your neck jewellery. They have the power to take a simple outfit from drab to fab in seconds. They are an affordable way for you to jazz up your wardrobe favourites and finally they scream ‘creative genius’ to those you meet! From twisted, floral, feathered and geometric to bib and collar necklaces; there are endless bold and loud styles to add pizzazz to your look this summer. Don’t think your statement jewellery is only for the weekend either! The best way to show off the beauty of a necklace is to wear it with strapless dresses and make it a key focal point of look. This is, if you like, the ‘traditional’ way to wear this type of jewellery. As we all know nowadays the rules in the fashion industry have become the fact that there are no rules and so I say have fun teaming your statement necklace with just about anything in your wardrobe from a plain tee shirt to add an element of glamour, to maxi dresses, jumpers, shirts and just about everything in between.
Don’t think your necklace is just for the weekend either. In work it is just as important to look and feel colourful (after all we spend most of the week there!). So pick up a couple of items for your professional wardrobe too. When it comes to the colours you choose, don’t over think it. It is usually best to go for a clashing colour for maximum impact. You don’t want too matchy matchy with this look. The high street has so many to choose from. I am loving Penney’s, Dorothy Perkins, Etsy.com, H&M, Asos.com, Topshop and Marks and Spencer’s.
