trending tuesday : Statement Necklaces

I'm linking up again this week for #TrendingTuesday! Today I'm talking about statement necklaces.

It took me a long time before I finally decided to embrace this trend, but boy am I glad I finally did. I always thought I was too short to wear these fun accessories and worried that, like a bad print, they'd overpower me. I finally gave in a few months back when I found a great deal on one I loved at J.Crew. Now I wear a statement necklace almost every day. My trick for this trend is to keep the rest of my outfit simple; I literally want my necklace to be the statement. I know tons of girls layer them and look fabulous, but I haven't gotten to the point where I'm comfortable doing that yet, but hopefully soon!

Statement necklaces aren't only cute, but really practical. It's so much more realistic to go out and buy 5 necklaces than to buy 5 sundresses. You can mix and match these necklaces with the basics already in your closet to create so many different looks.

Here are a few current favorites I'd love to add to my collection.

Bauble Bar is obviously a great place to start your collection of these. You can sign up for an account here and save on your first purchase! I also really love Urban Peace Boutique because they are super affordable; you can get the necklace I'm wearing today for about $7 right now. I recently discovered Nordstrom makes shopping for these online super easy with a tab especially for statement necklaces. Any other favorite stores I should check out?


  1. i almost did statement necklaces today! love the looks!

  2. I am a huge statement necklace fan! My favorites always come from jcrew, and are always at least $50 so I have started buying a lot of inspired (aka fake) pieces off of ebay and they fab! At five dollars a necklace I don't feel bad about buying so many. Also, light years has a great selection!

I think of every blog post as a conversation. I hope you'll join in and leave a comment so I'm not just talking to myself.
