The Statement Necklace

Vera Wang 

Once again statement necklaces are very big this fall. One of the easiest ways to receive a compliment on your style is to find a necklace with a major pop factor. Designers have gone to dramatic extremes with pieces that are embellished, textured, layered, heavy, and severe. These necklaces have a tough and serious edge, but remain feminine at the same time. Nowadays shoppers want investment pieces that can carry them from day to night and that will complement different outfits. In this economic climate women are spending money on items that will enhance their closet. Something like a bold and beautiful necklace is a smart investment. It's a simple way to add instant glamour and elegance. 

Here is a list of ways you can showcase one of these fabulous necklaces: 

1. Business suit 
2. Collarless jacket 
3. Strapless dress 
4. Long silk dress
5. Wrap coat 
6. Fur coat 
7. Blazer 
8. V-neck sweater

I love big necklaces! When I was in junior high, circa '84, I inherited my great grandmother's box of costume pieces. I still wear them today; one is a particularly large number that features amber and brown colored rhinestones set around large oval shaped stones of the same color. It has to be 50 years old. Maybe more. I love it, and I wear it with chocolate gowns whenever I have the chance!

Adore, adore, adore. These are great choices. I'm brave enough to wear them all! Although I think my neck worries that I said that...
