HAVE FUN THIS SUMMER WITH A STATEMENT NECKLACE
words by LUCY BULLING • Fashion
IT'S TIME TO DECORATE YOUR DÉCOLLETAGE WITH VIBRANT AND FUN STATEMENT NECKLACES.
The summer necklace is like the fun, frivolous little sister to the more sophisticated gold chains and diamond chokers we choose to wear during the winter. Summer calls for color on mass, an experimentation with texture and detail (think beads and lockets), and even - if so inclined - kitschy trinkets, humorous slogans, and personalization.
The desire to have fun with jewelry when the mercury rises may be due to a subconscious irk to pay homage to a youth filled with friendship bracelets and DIY charms; of summertimes spent on the beach, collecting sea-shells, and braiding threads with friends to create the perfect, personal pendant.
Summers are for throwing caution to the wind and experimenting with your style. After all, the ‘summer fling’ is a thing for a reason. So why not apply this same, carefree attitude to your accessories, and invest in a necklace that has personality and flair; a necklace that works for both the beach and the bar.
Pearls in varied sizes, beads in vibrant and opposing colors, sea-shell charms, florets, and lots of layering. These characteristics are key to uncomplicated summer-time accessorizing. Show off this statement jewelry with a simple, slip dress and wear-everywhere tote, and you will embody the true essence of effortless summer style.
