Statement necklaces are all the rage right now, but despite what you may think, the term actually refers to more styles than you can imagine. Unlike more subtle, simpler necklaces, statement necklaces are bold and demand attention. They become major focal points, if not the major focal point, of an outfit and can add a lot of personality to your look. Choosing a necklace can say a lot about you, your personality, your style or just even your mood. Depending on the occasion, your fashion accessories can have a lot more power than you think.
One hot statement piece right now is the waterfall necklace. While the piece can come cut in different lengths (long or short and close to the neck) or in different styles and patterns (draped in simple chains or beaded), it always adds an air of glamour. One of these accessories can be worn with any outfit, but they do tend to add that glam factor no matter what. Wearing it over a tee can change your outfit from simple to chic and is guaranteed to be the center of attention when against a little black dress. These pieces draw a lot of attention to the neck, chest and shoulders and are best worn with scant else. A simple set of studs and a ring go well since this piece demands a lot of attention and can easily become the focal point of your outfit. Worn over simple solid colors or subtle patterns really allows this accessory to work its magic.
While the waterfall is more glam, the tassel is more fun and flirtatious. While it can definitely be worn to fancier events, this vintage piece really revives the retro feel of the roaring twenties. These pieces are a little more versatile and can be layered with other long necklaces or pieces of varying length, much like they were worn by flappers almost a hundred years ago. These necklaces are appropriate for most occasions, from a casual day out running errands to a night out dancing or even to an elegant dinner. While they can be worn to more formal events, they still provide that old sense of flirtatious flapper and they are fun while still feeling fancy.
