Saturday, October 06, 2012 Anonymous 9 Comments

Happy Weekend everyone.

Having done a post recently on the 10 Must-Have Bags to own for 2012, this post is a natural progression to the next level to complete the " Must Have" lists of necklaces to own and match with your trending wardrobe to set you apart from the masses.

Spanning a broad spectrum of styles and colours, SS 2013 jewelry trend  as showcased by key designers e.g Marc Jacobs in the recent NY & Milan Fashion Week is all about being bold, loud and in some designs classic with a vintage feel.

Here are some trending guidelines to follow when you purchase your next statement necklace.

 Choker Necklaces

I love my choker necklace!

As you can see in several of my earlier posts, my favourite to date is the heavy 1 piece metal choker necklace which I often try to create different looks with it. This necklace exudes a kind of cleopatra, goddess like feel yet somehow edgy. I also enjoy layering this simple necklace with others to create a totally different feel to my outfits.
Floral Necklaces

2013 Statement Jewelry Trend
Oscar De La Renta & Lanvin to name a few key designers have brought in strong, bold and floral necklaces for Fall Winter 2012 and Spring Summer 2013. 


 Blue Necklaces
 Blue is the colour to go for in colour trending for your necklaces.
Try and choose a shade of blue which is stronger and sharper  such as cobalt blue or turquoise to add that punch of colour to lift the mood of an outfit or even to bring out the coloured tones of an already colourful outfit.

 Gothic & Futuristic
Futuristic shapes and designs using a myriad of materials such as stone, metal and plastic was a hot favourite for Fashion Week. Likewise, Spikes, Skulls and Crosses are very much in trend too.

Play with textures with a unique feather necklace to accessorise your outfit. Go for just a simple feather pendant necklace like Vanessa Hudgens above, if you are afraid to look like you may have just slaughtered a chicken( giggling....)
Geometric Patterns
I personally feel Nicole Richie had a hand in making geometric pattern a big trend in necklaces especially with her House Of Harlow necklace. This infamous design was so popular that numerous versions of this necklace started to flood the market.

Maxi Necklace
The beauty of this style of necklace lies in its bold and strong effect.
Covering the neck and chest most certainly glams up a basic outfit.
Often it's worn on simple and plain fabric tops e.g cotton t-shirts, under plain shirts to create
a true statement.
