Meet my friend Erin, also known as the statement necklace queen. From the photo seen above is her archive of necklaces from Francesas, JCrew, and Charming Charlies, just to name a few and they were all for under $20! A statement necklace is a perfect way to take a basic tee and glam it up without having to invest in a completely new outfit, which is always tempting, but let’s get real!
The usual comments I hear about some statement necklaces from friends when shopping is that they “feel overdressed” with the glitz and not sure of what they would even wear them with. Also, there may also be the feeling they look like the sassy woman from the SNL Skit “Coffee talk with Linda Richman”
In reality a statement necklace is a look that anyone can pull off on any budget to give button ups an edgy look or giving that cozy sweater a bit of glam from work to happy hour! Check out how Erin keeps her looks fresh on a daily basis with these simple and chic looks!
