fashion tip: statement necklace

ever wondered how to wear a statement necklace?
a reader e-mailed me about a week ago asking for some suggestions about what to pair a great statement necklace with.
here’s a few ideas:
statement necklaces are great with a cute dress and structured blazer
dress & blazer – Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s
necklace – Forever 21

dress up a simple top with the necklace and a light sweater
top – H&M
sweater – T.J. Maxx

add some flair to a simple button up
shirt – JCPenney

throw the necklace on over a top with a high neckline for a classy look
top – T.J. Maxx

Add the necklace to dress up an everyday tank top and open-front sweater
tank top – Old Navy
sweater – T.J. Maxx
which version is your favorite?

  1. I'm surprising myself, but I actually like it with the simpler outfits the best! I like it with the button up and with the plain tank and open sweater.
