It’s winter and I tend to always be cold, however the more I get dressed to go out, the more I’m gravitating towards my collar necklace holder than I do my infinity scarves. Everyone loves a good, chunky knit scarf, but bless whoever thought chunky bling around the neck was a good idea because it totally is. A statement / collar necklace, whichever you want to call it, brings your outfit to life. You can have the most plain jane of tops, literally the most plain, a white V-Neck would work, throw a big necklace on and boom, in 20 seconds you just brought your boring outfit to casual chic.
Take the two tops above. Both are plain, monochromatic tops, and with a pop or color of shine the whole outfit is brought new meaning immediately. And that is exactly why I love them as much as i do… and as much as you should too! They vary in price depending on what stores you shop at, obviously, however you can find some amazing pieces, large and dainty, for under $20. I came across a lot of really great options, feel free to change your pricing constrictions, here.
It’s much easier to find the top that you want to wear then find the accessories than it is the other way around. When it comes to picking out the necklace that will work best, a lot of that is dependent upon the neckline of the top you have. A high, crew neck will look good with almost any style necklace. Another very easy style is an v-neck blouse. Take this one from Nordstrom, which I have in black btw. It’s very cute, very simple. Pair it with a nice pair of denim and some boots and you’re good to go.
Now imagine it with this laying just under it:
It’s a whole new look! You can make this work as your day to night. Go to work in it then get spontaneous drinks with your man, just make a quick pit stop to the mall first and bling yourself up.
The tops that you have to be careful about with these necklaces are those with lace at the top. Anything that has too much action going on at the top is elaborate enough as is, I’d go for some cute, flashy dangly earrings instead. For example this peplum with a high crew lace neckline.
So, while you may be a little more chilled than usual with your scarf wrapped up high on your neck, at least now you will look fabulous! More on the earrings later!Comments (0)
