Ask Alison | Style My Statement Necklace

It’s time for Ask Alison, my weekly feature where I answer reader submitted questions about style challenges.   Here’s this week’s dilemma:

Hi Alison!  I took part in my first Payday Pretty this week and got a great statement necklace for $16.  Problem is, I’m not quite sure how to wear it.  Can you show me some ways? – Kelly

Hey Kelly!  Woo hoo, a Payday Pretty virgin!  Wait, that doesn’t sound right.  How about first timer?  That’s better.  So glad you played along and got yourself this pretty sparkler for a steal.  I’d be happy to show you a couple of options.

LOOK ONE:  K.I.S.S. – Keep It Simple Sweetie!  Let your sparkler be the star by displaying it against the backdrop of a short sleeved black sweater.  Pair it up with colored denim and add a dash of leopard for a simple pulled together look.

LOOK TWO:  Casual Glam – Wear your statement necklace over a plaid button down to glam up a casual look.  Pair it with boyfriend jeans and a rugged heeled ankle boot.

  • I’m definitely a huge fan of keeping things simple. Love all your ideas!

  • Loveeee the first look! The red and the leopard makes me want to pee my pants with excitement…or maybe just jump up and down?!?!

  • you killed it on both of these looks. I just got a flannel shirt today and now I know how to style it! Problem is, all my statement necklaces are colored, so now I need a metal one!! More shopping!

  • Love both ideas, but Im loving the plaid! I may have to go get me on.:)
