Statement Necklaces

The truth is I’m not a huge jewelry girl. I used to wear all kinds of costume jewelry but for whatever reason I just outgrew it. Now I mostly stick to a few classic, simple pieces but am warming up to this trend of statement necklaces. They’re not meant for for the everyday, but I do think they really compliment a simple ensemble or dress up a more casual number, which is especially useful for this holiday season when we hop from party to party.

The look I love paired with a chambray shirt via Suri Says blog.

The idea is to ask yourself what piece is least likely to cause that ‘Good Lord, what was I thinking?!’ thought when you look at old photos. In this case I’ve picked pieces with classic elements such as pearls, tortoise shell, turquoise, etc.
