There’s nothing like a bold piece of statement jewelry to bring last year’s spring and summer wardrobes into 2009. Instead of buying new clothes, we’re thinking more about accessories. But here at RedPlum we are looking to save some cash, both by keeping the price tags on these baubles low, and by investing in pieces that we can wear all year long.
What are the styles we’re loving? Think big, bold necklaces that incorporate satin, lace and other fabrics normally associated with clothing. These embellishments will breathe new life into that dress you’ve had for ages. Add an eye-catching necklace to jeans and a tank or your favorite LBD and the possibilities are endless! And since we’ve always got our eye on the price tag, we found four beautiful necklaces to perfectly pull of this trend—all for under $20.
The Crochet Necklace. This Colorful Bib Necklace, available in pink and blue, is sure to add the necessary splash of color to any ensemble. A collection of crocheted, different sized circles hangs from the braided, adjustable-length chain. Made entirely of cotton, this necklace is easy to care for and easy to wear at only $20.
The Fabric Flower Necklace. This Pearl and Flower Necklace from Forever 21 is perfectly elegant, but still understated enough for everyday wear. The faux pearl beads give it classic appeal and the bold fabric flower makes it very on trend. And for less than $10, Forever 21 has done it right once again.
The Ribbon Necklace. The Twilley Necklace from Aldo is the perfect example of the possibilities of satin. This necklace would add the perfect dose of glamour to any plain V-neck or tank top with its multicolored and multi-sized stone adornments. And for only $7, you could buy the purple one and the black one without losing sleep!
Candie’s also makes an impressive ribbon necklace with its Two-Tone Multi-Strand Necklace available at Kohl’s. The black ribbon tie allows you the play with the length, while the multiple strands add an edgier look than the Aldo ribbon necklace. For $17, add this necklace to any crew neck for a sophisticated, layered look.
