I've honestly never been a fan of statement necklaces, especially those that are as elaborate as the one I'm wearing above. "It's too much!" I'd say. But yesterday, when I went out to take some photos, I "borrowed" this piece from my sister to add a bit of colour to the LBD I was wearing. The dress actually has a very flattering criss-cross back, but it's otherwise just a very simple black dress. I was really surprised at how well the they matched. It looked as if the necklace was part of the design of the dress.
Previously, when I wore this dress out, I'd felt that it was a little plain. The thought of matching it with a statement necklace never crossed my mind. I'm so glad I tried it because I really liked the way it looked! I may go hunting for more statement necklaces that suit my style and try them.
What do you think of statement necklaces?
