If you’ve been reading the blog or following me on Instagram for a while, you know that I love my accessories, especially my statement necklaces. No matter what I’m wearing, from a cute sweater to a great dress, a statement necklace always makes me feel more put together. Today I’m sharing some of my favourite pieces and where I found them. Whether you’re on a budget or just trying to limit your shopping, a great accessory score can go a long way towards updating your wardrobe at a very acceptable price point.
Pearls are my classic go-to. I have so many different styles of pearls that I can’t even keep track anymore. From multi-strand, classic pieces to modern styles with golden accents, pearls always dress up an outfit in the most elegant way. I love wearing them with tailored items like dress shirts and crew neck sweaters, dresses, and suit jackets. But I also love pairing them with edgier items like a moto jacket and leather leggings. While I have multiple pearl necklaces, I tend to gravitate towards three in particular – a classic multi-strand piece from J. Crew, a layered, long necklace from Joe Fresh, and a modern take on classic pearls from Forever 21. And I always wear matching pearl earrings with my pearl statement necklaces – the cute double sided ones pictured at the very top are a recent score from Aldo, but I have a pair of drop style ones from Joe Fresh that get lots of wear as well.
I am loving jewelled statement necklaces and earrings these days. After all, I obviously have a lots of love for all things sparkly. ✨ Although I have had a few jewelled items for a while, I’ve tended to wear my pearls far more often. But the grey jewelled necklace pictured above from Aldo is a new love of mine. With a matching bracelet and earrings (I love coordinating just a bit too much), it has been a great way to incorporate a bit of colour and make a statement without being garish. Sometimes, it can be a fine line between terrific and tacky, but the more subdued colour of this necklace lets it standout and act as a great accent piece without being obnoxious. And let’s face it – no one wants to wear obnoxious jewellery, even if it’s to make a statement.
I’ve always been a huge jewellery fan. Whether it’s a delicate family heirloom or an affordable statement necklace, a great piece of jewellery is the perfect way to dress up just about any outfit. Pearls offer a classic touch, while jewels are a bit more dramatic. Either way, they can elevate an understated outfit and brighten things up in the easiest way.
Enjoy the pretty things in life,
