When it comes to my jewelry I tend to favor delicate, understated pieces that can be layered easily to change up the look and make an impact.
Obviously, a girl can change her prerogative.
WHAT I’M WEARING:
Vince SWEATER (sold out, but THIS is similar for under $60!)// Zara FLARE JEANS // Vince PUMPS // Fairchild-Baldwin NECKLACE // Alexander Wang TOTE (old, but THIS is a similar style from the current collection)
I saw this FAIRCHILD-BALDWIN BELLA NECKLACE a few months ago at an A-LIST POP UP event and it immediately caught my eye. From the cool taupe color (“Mushroom” is the official name), to the modern leather magnetic clasp it was definitely a stand-out. I tried it on, played around with the styling and just kept thinking about it over the course of the weekend.
I loved how it was a modern reinterpretation of a traditional, multi-string necklace — something new out of something old. Even though it was a far cry from my usual go-to layered jewelry style, I knew this necklace had the ability to make a statement on its own. So I bought it…
…and I love it.
Working with bold, oversized accessories requires a bit of restraint. The rest of your look should be pared down to allow that accessory to do its job and actually make a statement. This soft cashmere sweater was the ideal canvas to make the necklace pop and become the focal point of the look. I kept the rest of the outfit minimal — FLARE JEANS, my most comfortable VINCE PUMPS and a large tote in a muted grey, croc-stamped leather.
This look was one of my packed outfits for the holiday weekend and I got so many compliments on what took 2 minutes to throw together! Score one for the lazy.
What’s your favorite statement piece?
