Stun in Statement Necklaces

Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but rhinestones are like your life-of-the-party college buddy. They’re loud, a little outrageous, and when clustered together on a necklace never fail to be the center of attention.

SN-main

Lina Soderstrom: Denim and rhinestones are a classic combination. The model gives the look a modern twist with a tailored blazer and shirt from GANT Rugger. Note how she buttons her blouse all the way up to better showcase the necklace.

SN-EvaMendes

All that glitters is not a statement necklace as Eva Mendes made evident with the vintage-inspired bauble that she designed and wore to the of launch of her New York & Company collection.

SN-Rochas

This stunner from Rochas’ F/W 13 collection is currently sold-out. But if you get your hands on one, it can be styled six ways to Sunday.

SN-AnnaWintour

Anna Wintour: If Vogue’s Queen Bee wears a look, you can trust it’s going to stick around for a while. She put a Park Avenue spin on the necklace by pairing it with a tweed suit during New York Fashion Week. And her younger companion proves the trend has trans-generational appeal!

SN-DriesVanNoten

The rectangular crystals on this Dries Van Noten F/W 13 necklace are offset by the thin silver-plated band. It’s ‘90s minimalism meets early ‘00s bling.

SN-Rihanna

Rihanna: Out on the VMA after-party circuit in New York, the singer’s rhinestone choker almost diverted attention from the plunging neckline of her Balmain Jacquard V-Neck Dress . An eye-catching accessory is a fail-safe way to spice up a little black dress.

Chunky costume necklaces are back in a big way this season and you can find the perfect one for yourself for under $100 with My Picks!

A/X Statement Necklace ($58), Asos Emerald Stone Bib Necklace ($36), Forever 21 Glam Bejeweled Necklace ($13), BaubleBar Maharaja Fringe Strand ($44), Mango Touch Faceted Stones Necklace ($60), Zara Crystal Drop Necklace ($30)

You’re a Stunner!

The Half-Tuck!

The deliberate half-tuck trend offers a solution to fashion challenges: perhaps you want to show off your waistline to create a more flattering silhouette, or maybe you’d like to display a cool belt or emulate a stylishly disheveled look. It’s a savvy trick that the fashion set, such as Leandra Medine of The Man Repeller and Karla Deras of Karla’s Closet, has recently adopted. There’s an art to this technique, though: in order to avoid looking half-dressed, make sure your top is carelessly tucked into a tailored skirt or pants, resulting in a casually cool outfit.
