When it comes to spicing up an outfit, a statement necklace really is THE go-to piece for upping the glam factor.
From crystals to Perspex, the chunky neckpiece has become a bona fide wardrobe staple for the last few seasons and thankfully for us, the high street has been quick to incorporate the trend.
Why not add some drama to your office wardrobe with a heavily embellished choker piece. Topshop have a beautiful pearl and stone eye-catcher that will add a touch of Victoriana luxe to your classic shift and blazer combo.
A packed festival calendar means that you can go heavy on the ethnic jewellery to give your capsule festi-wardrobe extra oomph. Pair a peasant dress with H&M’s gorgeous tasseled bib necklace for ultimate ‘I’m with the band’ chic.
We’re totally crushing on Zara’s unusual Perspex and floral pieces right now. Use the geometric plate necklace to bring your plain white vest into cosmic territory. Team with black skinny jeans and metallic heels and hey presto – your new favourite Saturday night dancing outfit has arrived.
Of course, these bejeweled beauties are begging to be worn as part of a fabulous formal ensemble. Rock any of them with a bandeau maxi dress for instant red carpet appeal, or else simply throw on with an oversized sweat for an off-duty look that breaks from the fashion norm.
With many of these covetable pieces starting from under twenty pounds, it’s a trend you can buy into without breaking the bank, plus, the braver you are, the more impact you’ll create.
