Recently, my sisters and I held an ice cream social at our house on campus to raise money for our philanthropies, Reading is Fundamental (RIF) and Kappa Kappa Gamma Foundation. We wanted to make sure that all the sisters were united by what we were wearing, but still unique in our own ways… enter statement necklaces. We were able to achieve the look of an integrated, yet personally individual look by wearing dark jeans, a simple white top, and a statement necklace of our choice.
Statement necklaces are a huge trend right now, and they’re one of my favorite pieces of jewelry. I have a whole wall full of them hanging behind the door in my room! It not only makes for a pretty decoration to have on display, but I also have a necklace for practically every outfit. “I love statement necklaces! I think they’re the perfect way to add a pop of color to an outfit without over saturating the look. My favorites are pastel colors because they go with so many different things and they add just the right touch,” exclaimed Kappa sister, Erika Bieberbach.
Statement necklaces are also a great way to change up an outfit that you’ve worn previously. For example, in this photo, I’m wearing an aqua bubble necklace, but I could easily switch to a different style necklace and color next time I decide to wear that outfit for a brand new look. They’re also great for dressing up a casual look. Switch your flats to heels and throw on a statement necklace, and you’re set! They’re a great investment and can be found at various stores online like, eBay, Franchesca’s, [Armed & Readi, and tons of other stores! So don’t shy away from these bold baubles. Stand out and look glamorous with a statement necklace!
