CLOSET STAPLE: The Statement Necklace


Statement necklaces are among my must-have closet staples because they are extremely useful for any occasion. I can't even begin to explain how obsessed I am with accessories. To me, accessories either make or break an outfit. You can wear a pretty dress by itself but that's all it's ever going to be -- a pretty dress. However, add an elegant statement necklace to the mix and it will instantly elevate your entire look, from a simple outfit into a definite showstopper.

My outfit for today is a perfect example of the power of a statement necklace. I was too lazy to get "dolled up" so I literally just grabbed the first things that I could from my closet (a nautical striped top, white jeans, and sandals). Luckily, I just threw on one of my many statement necklaces and it looks like I actually put effort into this look!



Like I said, never underestimate a nice little necklace. Without it, my outfit would have been plain and somewhat boring, but just by adding that one little piece, it transformed into something that looks a little more stylish.



As with all of my previous "closet staples" blog posts, versatility is the name of the game. A statement necklace can be worn with anything -- a basic top, a printed tee, a sweater, collared shirts . . . Anything! The best part is that you won't even have to splurge too much because costume jewelry is so affordable nowadays.

  1. so true... but sometimes I get a little mindful because, there are time that I'm talking to someone, he's looking at my accessories and not into my eyes at all... ;/ Nakkaconscious! Pero khit na, I'd still wear them, although I own a few. ;)

    Love,

  2. why am I guessing where you took these photos?? huhu I'm guessing BGC/ATC or Serendra... HAHAHAHAH sorry I just had to (we should like collab sometime) :)) anyway, I love statement necklaces even if I'm not much of an accessory person. I love them in gold though and I can't wait for the necklaces I ordered ;)

  10. I completely agree. Accessories are the icing to a really nice cake!!!

    I just got a beautiful necklace from Dallas, Texas that I am wearing right now and it is such a perfect statement necklace. I'm just in jeans and a t-shirt but with this around my neck I look so chic and fashionable! Amazing what they can do to enhance an outfit xxx
