Statement Necklaces

Statement necklaces have been a major fashion item must-have since last summer. We've been seeing them on runways and red carpets.  Statement necklaces are brilliant for adding a hint of sparkle or boldness and jazz up any outfit. However, they must be done properly so you don't look like a big chaotic mess.
The statement necklace is a standout accessory that make the dress look completely unique and eye-catching. When it comes to necklaces, "the bigger, the better" theory holds true. These huge jewelry pieces that can transform a simple dress, tank or tee into a chic and fashionable ensemble. Beaded or embellished, layered or twisted, long or short; these statement pieces are sure to get you plenty of attention. Pairing up a large shiny necklace with a simple outfit is a hot trend nowadays.
From chunky bejeweled pendants seen at Naeem Khan to edgy metallic chokers at Jill Stuart to Anna Sui's tribal necklaces, it's true the market is full of statement necklaces right now, so you shouldn’t have a problem finding one that suits you.


Wear your hair up so it doesn’t compete with your statement necklace. After all, you want the piece to shine. You can wear your hair down with a bold necklace, but its better to let the necklace take center stage.

 Match 'em up. Your statement necklace doesn’t have to be a bright color in contrast to a simple dress. Matching your statement necklace to the rest of your outfit creates a long line and gives your outfit some depth. Ginnifer Goodwin kept her entire outfit in the same orangey-brown color family. And the necklace still makes quite a statement.

Wear over-the-top brights. The turquoise blue is a complementary color to the purple, so Carmen stands out in this ensemble. Don’t be afraid to pair bright colors with other bright colors to make your outfit pop ( color blocking is in!!!!!).

I love a good necklace and have recently started to really like big chunky necklaces as you can see  


Make sure you get yours. here are some beautiful ones
