Statement Necklaces



1. Kate Spade Short Faceted Stone Necklace $195
2. Forever 21 Jeweled Damsel Necklace $9.80
3. Hive and Honey Multi Link Bib $28
4. Madewell Crystal Collage Bib Necklace $88
5. Hive and Honey Bullet Drop Necklace $32

I've recently been drawn to necklaces that make a statement. I love wearing them with an otherwise simple outfit to add a bit of character to my ensemble. I recently bought #2 at Forever 21 and have been wearing it with white tees and simple skirts for a fun/easy summery look. How do you wear statement necklaces?

I agree! Throwing on a bold feminine necklaces makes the simple look so much more polished. I'm in love with number 1!

I have been drawn to statement necklaces for some time now, but the funny thing is that I have yet to buy one!! Maybe this is my time?!

I'm loving the Forever 21 one that you bought, as well as the Hive and Honey one.

Great finds!

Wow, I actually picked the one that's not too expensive, number 2. They'd all look great with any outfit, dressed up or down.

PetiteGorgeous said...

Love your picks! My favorite is the first one.

Gabriel said...

How does forever 21 do it? They always have the least expensive stuff. I'm all for that.

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

Oh I love these all! Isn't F21 great for inexpensive statement jewelry?

Hope u had a fabulous weekend! xoxo

Julie (brown eyed belle) said...

Would you believe I was drawn to the F21?? I love that! They have the best jewelry. If I'm looking for something that I need for one outfit, I always go to F21.

I hope you had a great weekend, Miss Valerie! xo

I like the second one it looks really cute.

Erica said...

These are such great choices. I too try to keep it super simple and make the necklace the focal point. I think the best way to wear a really colorful statement necklace is with a really simple black strapless top/dress/pantsuit/romper/etc, etc. ; )

Jammer said...

I want them all lol. It's moments like these that remind me why I want to work!

# 2 is my favorite! I like these types of necklaces because 1) it takes a certain level of confidence to wear something that stands out and makes a statement; and 2) it turns an otherwise simple outfit into a more 'complex' one.

Iva said...

OMG!! I love them all!! Hope you had a nice weekend!! :)

Poppies and Sunshine said...

I was immediately drawn to #2! Glad to see it's the cheapest one. I love it!

Krystal said...

I love #6! and the one that you got is gorgeous too!

Kristin said...

I rock 'em with my Hanes mens tanks! And I want that Kate Spade beauty NOW!

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

#2 & 6 are my faves and they are affordable- YAY! :) When does that happen? haha

Gina said...

I adore statement jewelry of any kind. I love the first and second necklace shown above. And it's kind of funny because they are the most and least expensive options. ;)

SogniSorrisi said...

These are all so pretty, but of course the first one to draw my eye is the most expensive!

I like to wear mine with more simple attire as well--t shirts, cardigans, etc. I love big statement pieces of jewellery.

Emily Kathleen said...

Love statement necklaces and your picks are great! Especially the Madewell necklace...TDF!

very married said...

i agree with the simple outfits with statement necklaces - otherwise you end up a warbled mess.

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

OOh I love statement necklaces. The funny thing is I rarely wear them MYSELF, but I adore them on others.
