Fashion 118: Style Dilemma

14 July 2009

I love the new sparkly jumbo necklaces, but I'm not sure how to wear them. Help! DulcieT

Big necklaces have replaced bags and shoes as the statement piece this season (and next), and the modern way to wear them is during the day. Check out gorgeous New York girl-about-town Olivia Palermo rocking a Roberta Freymann necklace here. The secret is to play down the rest of your outfit (box-fresh tees, Breton tops and shift dresses) and let your chosen piece do the talking. The golden rules? Keep your neckline simple and resist piling on other accessories - you'll look like a Christmas tree! Find jumbo necklaces at Freedom at Topshop, Oscar de la Renta and Malene Birger.
