Trend Report: Statement Necklace


The Power of The Statement Necklace.  Statement necklaces were huge throughout spring and summer, but they haven't lost any momentum heading into fall/winter. The bold neon and soft pastels hues that caught our eye during the warmer months have transitioned to bold jewel tones, sparkling crystals, and elegant tortoiseshell. 

Whether you're wearing a crisp collared shirt or a chunky cable knit sweater, add a statement necklace to your ensemble to create a fierce fall fashion look.  Brighten up your neckline with a fun bejeweled necklace

  • This standout piece looks best when styled with a simple outfit. Styling your go-to little black dress with various statement necklaces is a fabulous way to add a trendy twist to an old classic.
  • Keep the rest of your jewelry simple, especially your earrings. You don’t want to look like a little girl who overindulged in her mom’s jewelry box. By keeping your jewelry simple, you are letting the statement pieces speak for themselves.
  • If you have a larger bust, it is important to opt for shorter necklaces that don’t lie directly on your chest.
  • When choosing a bright coloured necklace, think of the colours that you wear the most frequently and purchase a necklace that will compliment your existing wardrobe.
  • Store your oversized necklaces on hangers, to keep them from tangling, bending or breaking. This will keep your necklaces from sliding and clumping together.
  • A statement necklace is most versatile in metal.  Gold or silver, or both, it doesn’t matter.  What does matter is that it is interesting while being versatile.   While you can have statement necklaces in colours,  having one that is gold or silver, depending on preference, will get you the most mileage because it will match everything you wear while adding a pop.
While a piece so distinct can seem constrictive, it’s actually super versatile! It adds glamour to an otherwise boring work ensemble and dresses up casual Friday’s t-shirt & jeans. We love how much a statement necklace can change your look… and the fact that it really will go with everything. Will you be making a statement in 2014?
