The statement necklace is going to be here for awhile – so if you haven’t jumped aboard the trend yet – you might want to do so! These big, bold necklaces were hot during 2009 and they don’t seem to have lost any steam for the upcoming year. There are three distinct styles hitting the runways in 2010 – the bib, geometric and bauble. Bold, bright colors and metallics are also popular when it comes to these oversized, necklaces.
I covered the bib necklace (along with how to make your own), earlier this month…(click here).
The geometric statement necklace can be a bold, modern fashion move. This style of necklace is often found with large geometric shapes in bright colors adorning them. Geometric statement necklaces are a great choice for everyday wear. Especially paired with jeans and a T-shirt. For a fun and funky weekend outfit, pair a loose fitting scoop neck shirt with your favorite pair of jeans and throw on a bright colored geometric necklace for the perfect accessory. You can’t go wrong (especially with nude heels). One of the simpler charm-like geometric necklaces is perfect for office wear. A mid-length chain with sparkly shapes and rubies or sapphires would pair great with trousers and a blazer.
The bauble statement necklace is the other hot accessory for the 2010 season. This type of necklace is perfect for the bold fashionistas out there. They can be a lot of fun and you can find them with just about anything adorning the chains. They can be found with large roses with sparkly gemstones, hearts, large stones, pearls and ribbons. These necklaces usually hang long and look great with tunics and skinny jeans or can add some flair to an everyday blazer. Colors like bronze, black and coral are really popular for the upcoming season.
The main thing to remember when it comes to statement necklaces is to break all the rules! Go big, bold, bright and beautiful and you can’t get this trend wrong. Also remember that these necklaces can be paired with just about any outfit from an evening out on the town or a weekend shopping trip with the girls. Keep in mind that they are called statement necklaces for a reason. If you don one of these necklaces, it is the statement of your outfit. Keep the outfit simple with neutral colors and not too much pattern. This will ensure that your necklace steals the show everywhere you go.
