Statement Necklaces especially the Big Chunky ones have been a very big trend this year.On the red carpet,alot of female celebrities have been wearing them. You can wear them on almost everything,yes even t-shirts and jeans!
The key to really looking fabulous with Statement necklaces is to make sure that :
- The dress or whatever you are wearing with it is very simple,and
- Your Hair should also be simple.
If you want to get this looks,you can get some really beautiful and affordable pieces at stores like Forever 21 and H&M . Statement Necklaces would be a good addition to your collection.Let me show some looks so you might get some Inspiration:
Honestly i have never been a fan of piling on Pearls or Jewelry on my neck,although it works on a lot of ladies. For example the Necklace Michelle Obama is wearing above,i will never wear,i like my pearls single,no matter the size .However if its your style,go for it.
I like this Necklace by Tom Binns Jessica Biel wore for Total Recall Movie premiere Recently. Take note of the simple hair and make-up .
One of my personal favorite looks is this turquoise Lorraine Schwartz necklace Heidi Klum wore to the 2012 Golden Globes. Beyonce also wore this for her spread in People‘s 2012 Most Beautiful issue.If you notice Hiedi is also wearing minimal make-up.
Olivia Palermo Necklace is just so beautiful.
One statement Necklace that recently caught my eye is this Celine Necklace.
Kim kardashian has it in two Colours. Its simple but also chunky at the same time.
You can use your statement Jewelery to spice up a plain tee -shirt.
For example the beautiful pieces pictured above will go perfectly with black ,red or white t-shirts.

I am so into Floral designs these days. It was big on the Runway this year.Valentino was one of the first Designers that made me take notice of it. Moschino had some beautiful Floral suits in their 2012 spring Collection. Florals have always been around,but what makes it look fabulous and really desirable is when the fit is right and the outfit is styled perfectly.
Check out different ways it has been worn by different Celebrities.
