I’m talking about one of my newest fashion crushes here, as I somehow managed to neglect this category over the past two months. I know that this statement piece gained her first fans quite a few years back, but for me – the subtle jewelry loving type – the transition was a little bit slower.
I started by liking this trend as worn by celebrities on the Red Carpet, when suddenly the statement necklace became a key piece for any respectable fashionista, as the street fashion took a new spin. And as it is easier to admire trends on others, rather than actually giving them a try, another while past between me acknowledging the trend, and me actually feeling comfortable wearing it.
Below you can find a short selection of beautiful necklaces that I would love to wear during Spring or Summer this year, and also my favorite ways of centering an outfit around the jewelry piece.
1. Piperlime – Beaded Statement Necklace in Aqua Green – $24
2. stella & dot – Birds Of Paradise Necklace – $ 133.50 (on sale)
3. Threadsence – Tahitian Goddess Necklace – $22
4. ASOS – Silk Cord and Looped Statement Collar – $32.23
5. stella & dot – Cortez Bib Necklace – $49 (on sale)
Although styling an outfit with a chunky necklace should be fairly simple, considering the infinite options we are given, paying extra attention to details won’t hurt. The right necklace should fall right into place either you are trying to achieve a super casual look, or an extra sophisticated one.
My favorite ways of wearing this jewelry piece :
World Of A. ( A. coming from Accessories) is our newest category, created mainly because if you are passionate about fashion like I am, then you too must love to see how a pair of shoes, a bag, a necklace, a pair of glasses or all those combined could take the simplest outfit to new heights.
Taking every piece of accessory by itself, we are going to follow the trends directly on our favorite celebs and see how inspiring they might get.
The first post is dedicated to the Christian Louboutin’s Lady Peep Peep Toe Pumps mania – described as 5 1/2″ covered heel with 1 1/4″ revealed platform and seen on every woman who loves a beautiful pair of nudes (they actually come in a variety of colors, but I love this particular nude patent leather pair ).
Let’s now see who wore them best :
Serinda Swan paired the pumps with a white belted mini dress at the Audi Kicks Off The 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards Week 2011 back in September, whilst Nicole Scherzinger wore the the pumps at the Labor Day Weekend Celebration, matching them with a red leather mini dress that left little to the imagination:
Next in line, the beautiful Jennifer Lopez accessorized this amazing Temperley London Fall 2011 Drape Shoulder Ruffle Cocktail Dress with the Christian Louboutin’s pair of pumps for the Samsung For Hope Event, whilst Kim Kardashian paired the Loubs with the gold Kaufman Franco gown at The 53rd Annual Grammy Awards :
The last two choices I made reveal an elegant Jennifer Morrison wearing the pumps with a Max Mara Pre-Fall 2011 Beige Embellished Bodige and Chiffon Dress at the 2011 InStyle and Warner Bros. Golden Globe Awards Post-party and a more casual Anna Kournikova, pairing the stars favorite pumps with a pair of denim shorts, a blouse and a grey blazer :
I personally couldn’t decide between the two “Jennifers” approaches, but I would love to know who do you think wore the Lady Peep Peep Toe Pumps better ? Join the discussion
