Shopping for accessories is definitely one of my guilty pleasures. I can trawl the likes of Primark, New Look and Topshop for ages finding new pieces that I want. They’re fun, pretty and can make an outfit look so much better; regardless of whether you’re having one of those days where you dislike everything in your wardrobe and your hair just won’t cooperate, your trusty accessories will always look good!
There’s just something about a chunky necklace that I love, even though it’s most definitely a statement piece the chunky style means it can easily be worn both daytime and evening. I have lots of sparkly pieces in my collection. A statement necklace that can be worn with both casual and dressy outfits ticks all the boxes for me: versatile, reasonably priced and great quality.
The chunkier, the funkier, the bigger, the better! So ditch the small delicate pieces and get ready to go BOLD!
Accessories don’t have to be expensive, but it can add a pop of colour or glam to any outfit made from a variety of materials: glass, hammered metal, gemstones, beads, acrylic, plastic, shells or resins.
Because of it’s size, a chunky necklace can stand on it’s own or it can look great when worn with other necklaces as a layering piece. Wear them with a button down shirt for work (under the collar like a man’s tie), a knitted jumper or a chic dress to go out in. A huge trend in 2013 are vintage rhinestone necklaces worn with workwear dresses.
The bold statement form of neck candy is back and since Cara Delevigne walked the Chanel AW13 catwalk wearing a large chain choker, everyone from actress of the moment Lily Collins to fashion chameleon Rihanna has been spotted sporting them.
While we always love a sophisticated dainty chain or delicate pendant a bold necklace such as this means that you often don’t need to worry about any other accessories letting the avante garde of the necklace do all of the talking. It also means that your outfit can be kept quite simple meaning that all round the addition of a chunky necklace makes getting dressed in the morning a whole lot simpler.
