My whole life my mum always joked saying I must have been a drag queen in another life. I have always been attracted to anything shiny! I think the happiest moment of my childhood was when I was a ring bearer at my aunt's wedding and my dress was a mini copy of hers... It was a crystal sparkly explosion and I couldn't stop smiling! Of course my style has obviously evolved since then and I've mostly been rid of my flashy ways. Mostly!
Even though they can be a little too much sometimes, what I like the most about statement necklaces is how versatile they can be. They can dress up a little black dress or be a touch of fun on a casual outfit. In fact, my favourite way to style them is to combine them with a simple jeans and tshirt look and let the necklace do all the work. You know me, the trick is to make it look like you've made an effort, even if you haven't!
I'm still a bit of a way away from making statement necklaces a wardrobe staple, if I'm honest. I've been wearing delicate, understated necklaces for years now, so they might take a bit of getting used to. But my next jewelry purchase will definitely be one of these big guys!
How do you feel about statement necklaces?
