It’s all about the necklace! Accessories are as equally important to a woman’s wardrobe as the dress and shoes she has on with it. There is nothing worse than having the perfect dress, and no jewelry to complement it! Grab a statement necklace and problem solved!

A chunky necklace is the perfect quick-fix to a bare ensemble. With the necklace being the center of attention, there is less need to accessorize everywhere else.   You can complement the ear with a small stud or none at all. Depending on the necklace and earring, you can wear small, thin bangles or a nice dramatic ring.

Typically, when wearing a statement necklace I make sure my blouse or dress is a solid color. This allows the necklace to stand out, and avoids conflict between the pattern or print of your top and the necklace. However, this isn’t always the case. I’ve seen patterns mixed and matched and the presence of a gaudy necklace only added to the fabulousness of the outfit.

You can find statement necklaces everywhere! For my fun and flirty readers try Betsy Johnson’s collection, which you can find in Macy’s, Dillards, or any one of her stores. If you’re a lover of all things chic try ASOS.com, and for my fabulous gals shop BeBe! It’s about your personal style and the risk you’re willing to take. Fashion is all about trial and error; don’t be afraid to mix it up!
