Statement neckpieces, necklaces & collars
A chunky, sparkling, statement neckpiece is a fail safe way to instantly add a certain Je Ne Sais Quoi to a simple outfit. It’s also a budget friendly approach to updating existing pieces in your wardrobe.
Everything from a classic simple white shirt to an LBD can be totally transformed by the easy addition of an oversized gold collar, or a beaded neckpiece.
The bigger the better we say, but if that’s not your thing, there are tonnes of smaller pieces which can be just as impactful.
The great thing about a statement necklace is that you don’t have to blow the budget to score yourself a fab one, although, you can… (Trust us), but it’s not necessary. The high street is always stuffed to capacity with glittering golds, vibrant colours and bejewelled beauties.
We could literally list 100’s we like, but since that would most likely bore the hell outta you, and take us way too long, we have been really tough and picked our top ten!
The Style Fairy Top Picks:
You simply cannot discuss neckpieces or collars without including the amazing Irish designer Joanne Hynes. This stunningly gorgeous and oh-so-versatile neckpiece is even on sale right now!!! It’s normally €300, and is now reduced to €160. Uh -oh, this could be dangerous. Think of the looks you could create with this gorgeous piece, even pairing it with a totally simple white vest or t-shirt, pop on a blazer and you are hot-to-trot!
This gold, beaded, necklace from Topshop had to be included purely because it is just so versatile and pretty. This is the type of necklace you will wear again and again. It is easy to introduce to any look; pop it on with a classic white shirt or to glam up a simple dress, this necklace will get a lot of use.
This next piece is also from Topshop. And it is a total showstopper. The detail in this necklace is just gorgeous. This is a statement if we ever saw one. We would wear this with a really simple top, and some leather look pants, a cute blazer, heels and watch the heads turn!!!
You can always count on Zara for some well priced, on trend, necklaces. This gold collar style necklace has leather woven into it, which is really on trend right now. This style is best worn with a buttoned up blouse or shirt. A wardrobe staple!
We got a lot of love for this silver beaded necklace from H&M. This is the perfect style of a necklace for adding some wow factor to a party look. Pop this stunner on with a strapless dress for a really elegant, glam look.
This neon necklace from Warehouse is super trendy. Neon, (love it or hate it) is still a big trend right now, so this piece is a simple way to introduce the trend into your outfit. For the brave fashion mavens among you, clash this against another vibrant colour for ultimate wow factor. This could also look really cool worn with a casual chunky knit jumper and leggings to add some impact for a day time look.
Back to the queen of collars Joanne Hynes for our next piece. This gorgeous, made to order, crystal embellished collar, made with Swarovski crystal stones, crystal chains and costume jewelled brooches is a real investment piece. A lot pricier than anything we have looked at yet, but this collar can be worn season after season and is really a showstopper.
We heart this double chain gold necklace from ASOS, the detail in it is fab, as are the green and blue tones. This would work so well clashed with a mustard yellow jumper. Or would really bring a green or blue dress to life!
Last but not least, this bling is from French Connection at ASOS. The colour of this makes it very versatile and a perfect wardrobe staple necklace. It’s an easy piece to introduce into your look and you could gets lots of wear out of it!
‘Til next time
