Hello! I'm Kelli from the blog Leopard and Lavender. I am so glad to be guest posting for Samantha while she is on vacation! At my blog, I do my best to write about style, but mostly focus on keeping life simple but fun! The thing is, style and fashion can seem so tedious. How many mornings do you stand in your closet feeling entirely lost? I know for me, it is more often than I should admit. My solution has been [you guessed it] simple: statement necklaces!!
Statement necklaces are a real style saver. You can throw one on with anything [and I do mean anything], and your outfit is MADE. I have a few favorites that are nearer to the neckline and have upped the ante more times than I can count:
What is really nice is all of these were less than $12! The black collar is from H&M, the turquoise was a DIY [which you can see here], the sparkle is a Target find, and the neon is Forever 21. These were LOW budget, SMALL items that make a BIG impression. Another route you can take is a long, chunky necklace- similar to the ever popular [cult classic?]
Again, in both cases- I am wearing a very plain item with the necklace stealing the show. As you can see- blending color [black on black] or contrasting [hello turquoise!] works well. These types of statement necklaces are often more eye catching, so perfect when you're ready to take your statement to the next level. The black version is from one of my favorite Etsy shops, ILY Couture. [And all readers of my blog get FREE SHIPPING when they use the code LLSHIP at checkout.] Hopefully, I've plead my case enough to make you realize what a staple a statement can be :) and it will help you the next time you are feeling like mortal enemies with your dear closet.
Thank you again to Samantha for letting me post today, and don't forget to come visit me at Leopard and Lavender!!
