Jewelry Collection (Continued): Necklaces
Sequel to my jewelry addiction post
When sporting a tassel bib necklace or pearl ensemble, I feel as if I’m wearing a piece of art on my body! Tassels and chains look bulky but do not bother me throughout the day, so I often wear costume jewelry to class or casual outings. An easy-going combination is pairing a statement necklace with a sheer blouse or chunky sweater. Simple, effortless, and classic – perfect for all-year long.
I’ve collected jewelry over the years. My go-to pieces are ones I purchased from Charming Charlie while I was in high school. Charming Charlie became my favorite accessory chain once I realized that its quality was better than that of Forever 21 or H&M for a similar price range. Merchandise of fast-fashion brands are neither engineered nor priced for luxury to or to last a long time, but I said goodbye to having my jewelry break the second I walked out of a store!
Similar to my ring collection, most of my necklaces are in gold or rose gold!
I have difficulty scaling down my jewelry choice for the day; too often, I become carried away with layering and matching other statement accessories with my large necklaces! I have to stop myself after I put on a chunky necklace. This should be the focal point of your outfit, as you don’t want other accessories clashing with or distracting from these show-stopping accessories.
In addition to layering over simple tops, I like to wear necklaces over casual dresses for brunch or to transform a lackluster day look.
If I had to choose one , I would have to pick my tassel necklace from Nordstrom Rack. Inspired by Parisian women, I’ve been trying to copy their fashion by incorporating more tassels and black into my outfits.
