Boost Your Look with Winter Statement Necklaces

Winter necklaces don’t have to look boring! If you chose to wear the right pieces, then you can still look glitzy and glamorous while wearing heavier and thicker clothes.

It’s all about versatile, heavy-looking pieces. Allow yourself to embrace the cold weather and mirror it with some chunky necklaces that will be noticed from a mile away.

First up, I am featuring a cool bib, like a multi-row choker. Initially it may seem a little tacky, but you have to envision it with the proper dress. If you are going to a swanky event, then try throwing this on to dazzle and reinvent that simple long black dress. This choker allows you to play up those dresses that you feel uncomfortable wearing over and over again. The necklace will direct everyone’s attention to it and divert everyone’s attention from the fact that you have worn the dress before.

Mesh can create such a magical look, whether in your outfit or if you choose to implement it with this sassy necklace. It reminds me of winter and snowflakes, therefore I love it. Try this with jeans and a sleek boyfriend blazer and you will be impressed with the outcome. It will look like this necklace is floating on your chest.

Need something golden and chic? Then this gold chain necklace with one big faux pearl should be yours. It’s a simplistic style that makes a statement. Wear it during the day to go along with the richer winter trends, or brighten up your boring top for the evening.

Believe it or not, feathery statement looks are still fashionable. Some of you may shun away, and that’s okay. So, this next feature is for the gals who like an explosive and bold look. I would prefer to wear this necklace with a casual, elegant outfit as opposed to a cocktail dress. The black feathers really make this an easy pairing with the trendy deep burgundy colors.
