trend alert | statement necklaces

Welcome to a new week! I hope you’re feeling more rested and energised than I am… I had a fun, hectic couple of days, but the result is a distinct lack of energy today! Onto today’s post and a trend that can provide the focal point to an entire outfit: statement necklaces. They have the same effect as a great bag; however dressed down you are, don one of these stand-out accessories and it immediately makes you look far more put together. Olivia Palermo, Queen of the Accessory, has a penchant for embellished collars paired with a plain top or understated dress, and this really is the best way to do it. Combining an all-singing-all-dancing statement necklace with an already busy outfit is just sensory overload. What do you think of this trend? Are you willing to go bold?
