I've been loving bold neck adornments for the last few months and appear to have purchased quite a few! This nude number from H&M goes with everything from plain t-shirts to floral maxi dresses - it's a statement piece while still being subtle enough to wear with anything. It's perfect to add a little detail to complicated patterns while not letting your accessories doing too much of the talking. On the other hand, the statement monochrome and green numbers work best with block colours and muted hues; add with a contrasting orange or blue, or tone down with a LBD or LWD (that's a little white dress FYI.) The benefit of strong pieces like these is that the eye is automatically drawn upwards towards the neckline, meaning the focus is less on your troublesome areas if you worry about lumps, bumps or boobs, and more on your eyes and pouty lips.
Using a statement piece of jewellery is an easy and affordable way of updating your outfits without the need for a huge shopping spree. None of the necklaces I've featured are above £10 either, meaning you can justify investing in a couple to upgrade your look from this season to next. Hardly a day goes buy at the moment when I'm not wearing a bold piece of metal around my neck and I don't intend to change anytime soon! Are you a fan of the statement necklace trend? How do you upgrade your look in a simple way?
