Pieces of the Week

Piece of the Week: 8/2/17

Happy Wednesday, and welcome back to my weekly Piece of the Week feature! In my opinion, the best way to top off an outfit that needs a little spark is adding a statement piece of jewelry. Honestly, it took me a little bit to get into jewelry, but once I did, I came to understand its power. A dope pair of earrings or a statement necklace can do so much for your outfit, and say so much about you! That’s why my pick for piece of the week this week is this awesome layered necklace.

I discovered this necklace in my mom’s jewelry box, and now she will never get it back because it’s one of my favorites. A lot of statement necklaces intimidate me with their bright colors, but this one has the perfect neutral balance. The three distinct layers of gunmetal chains are so cool and add an edginess to any look. The way that all of the layers are the same but different is what makes this necklace so integral to any wardrobe.The iridescent, blueish/purple/silver stone that hangs in the middle adds just enough pop of color to really make a statement, while still being neutral.

I also love wearing necklaces of all lengths, so this layered piece with varying lengths really does it for me. Layered necklaces in general are a trend right now, and they all bring a new dimension to an outfit! Even if you DIY it with a choker and some longer chains, it will still provide visual interest to your look.

You can truly wear a necklace like this with anything. Below, you’ll see me wearing it in a more formal outfit to complement a plain top and a skirt that goes perfectly with the color of the stone. However, this could be worn much more casually, with some funky jeans, a white tank, and cute sandals for a fun summer look. It can be dressed up or down, and has just the right amount of femininity and edge to go well with any type of vibe.
