Make A Statement With Big & Bold Necklaces!

January 19, 2009 by Anna   | Filed under Style & Trends


This year, it's all about the big, bold and beautiful when it comes to accessories. The more exotic and outrageous the better! I'm loving this trend because that means I don't have to buy a lot of new clothes to be stylish this year. I can pair my t-shirt and jeans with a big chunky necklace for an instant trendy look. Or use that same chunky necklace and pair it with a simple black dress.

The "Eva Mendes Golden Globes" Look
Eva Mendes wowed the crowd at the Golden Globes this year with her simple white Dior, paired with the fabulous Van Cleef and Arpels turquoise bib necklace. The dress was pretty, but I don't think it would have been the same without the necklace. It definitely completed her look.

The Runway Look 
So..sometimes the things off the runway is either out of our budget or way too crazy to wear in the office and in everyday life. Here's some examples of my interpretation of this trend to make it more wearable.

    Love that gold ball necklace. This trend is so cool b/c it just brings up the style quotient of any outfit and is so versatile. You don’t even need anything expensive to do this look, just head to your local cheapy accessory store to get some great finds, or even make your own!

    I prefer to wear a one of a kind necklace, not one that lots of others are also wearing.

    Try here…nothing over $33 for FABULOUS necklace and earring sets.

    Big Bold and Beautiful AFFORDABLE and one of a kind.
