Trend: Statement Necklace vs. Pendant Necklace
08 • 28 • 2013
Should we store all of our statement bib-type necklaces in favor of the long, layered pendant look? I recently bought two cute necklaces that I wanted to compare.
The Incumbent = Bib-Style Statement Necklace
I’m so sick of seeing those rhinestone, bib-style statement necklaces that J Crew has been pushing season after season. Surely these are out by now.
Oh, and I’m sure you’ve never seen this necklace before:
|The J Crew Bubble Necklace- it’s everywhere!!|
|Not immune to the Bubble phenomenon|
Why, then, did I just buy a new J Crew statement necklace?? So versatile– it goes with nothing so it goes with everything!
This Fall I want to wear the statement necklace with a slouchy gray sweatshirt and leather skirt like this cute look from Cupcakes and Cashmere:
The Challenger = Long Pendant Necklace
Now consider the long horn pendant that I picked up at Blue Elephant, a cute new boutique from Austin that just opened in Rice Village:
|It was $12! A total steal.|
|Channeling Miz Richie|
When Carly from C Style blog came over to revamp my closet, she paired every outfit with delicate gold layered necklaces. She is a big advocate of the layered look, and believe me, she knows what she’s doing!
So, what do you think– are you over the statement necklace??
