You Asked, We Answered: 3 Wear-With-Everything Statement Necklaces

Web1
For this week's Q&A on My Stylist, Hanna A. from L.A. asked, "I work in real estate and am constantly on the move — from open houses to client appointments to local events. I don’t often think about accessories but I hear they make the outfit. If I had to pick just one accessory to wear, what would you recommend?"

Not long ago, you would have found me in the same predicament. While I loved the idea of accessories, I didn’t often have the time for them. That was, until I met the statement necklace. It’s one showy bauble that heightens an outfit, providing that final kick to make it just right. Whether you’re in distressed shorts and a slouchy tee, or a girl’s night out dress, the right statement necklace can do wonders. So, here are just a few tips when on the lookout for your next jewelry staple.

This symmetrical stone necklace focuses on a jeweled drop with an embellished chain. And the colors are not too bright or too dark, making it the perfect transitioning piece for fall. I’d wear this with a boatneck blouse in a vibrant color like magenta or yellow to pick up on the pink stone.

You can keep your bling to one color, like this crystal-chain choker. You can wear crystals with a T-shirt, like a simple striped tee. It’s glamorous and effortless.

The gold chain necklace is definitely having its comeback. Mr. T isn’t the only one allowed to rock these! I love that they’re simple and professional. Gold collars look great with a fitted dress or under a ruffled blouse.
