Everyone who knows me or follows me on Instagram, knows how I feel about the statement necklace. I know, I know, many people are probably over them by now, but I just find that my love affair with them grows stronger everyday. I mean, weather it is for work with a great turtleneck sweater or to be worn casually on the weekend with jeans and simple white t-shirt, I adore the extra punch that it gives to the outfit. My personal collection has grown quite a bit over the last year as I just can't seem to help myself when I see them. They can be long and cascading or fit closer the neck, but either way you just can't go wrong. What's so great about a statement necklace is that anyone can rock them. It is not like a style of dress or pant where someone can say, "I am just too short or too tall for that", it does not matter here. This is a great way to step up your look and take it to the next level. There are so many different styles to choose from. If you are someone who is not on the adventurous side, you can stick the the metals and go for the more muted styles, but the statement is made with the construction of the piece. If you are one who likes to go bold with color, there are many necklaces encrusted with beads, stones and gems that you can adorn yourself with. Whatever direction you choose to go in, just remember to have fun with it, this is not rocket science here.
If the statement necklace is new for you and you are not wanting to make a heavy investment, there are tons of stores and websites that you can go to and not break the bank. Charming Charlie is a wonderland of a store with many different price points and a wide selection of statement necklaces. Target is also a great place to get pretty pieces with decent prices. If you want to go online to acquire your pieces, www.jane.com is a favorite of mine. They have some great necklaces and do grab bags from time to time where you can get several great items for a steal! If you are one who does not mind investing a little more in a great statement necklace you have plenty of options for where you can shop. Major department stores like Nordstrom or Macy's are great places to visit. There are numerous websites as well, but my personal favorite is www.baublebar.com. They have absolutely gorgeous necklaces and let's talk about how beautiful the packaging is, presentation is everything!
