Statement necklaces made a major come back this spring. Frankly, I am glad that is so. They are probably the second best way of ‘dressing-up’ and taking any look from drab to fabulous and from great to absolutely mind-blowing. (The best way ahead of statement necklaces, according to me, is the classic red lip.)
I have quite a collection of statement necklaces. I use them to dress up plain crew-neck tees in solid colours like black, white, grey, etc. I also use them to glam up an evening look. A classic LBD accessorised with one of these babies and a red lip works like a charm. They are also very useful when I have to move from work to cocktails. In such cases I just throw on a statement piece and make my eye makeup a little more dramatic and I’m ready without having to carry a change of clothes or having to rush home to change.
Statement necklaces are versatile and fun. And best of all, they are an interesting way to add a personalised quirky touch to any look.
Here are a few of my favourite pieces from my personal collection.
1) A quirky pink and orange necklace from Koovs.com, approx. USD 30

2) A blue tribal design inspired piece from Zara. I can’t remember exactly how much I paid for it but it couldn’t have been more than USD 50.
3) A white stones and diamonds piece from Accessorize. Again, can’t remember exactly how much I paid but it couldn’t have been more than USD 20.
4) A simple pink stones necklace from Accessorize which was gifted to me.
5) A lovely peacock / dreamcatcher inspired piece from South Africa, gifted by my father-in-law.
