It’s the middle of autumn, which means that winter is just around the corner...which means the sun and lingering summery weather will soon make way for rain showers and sub-zero temperatures.
Okay, fine. We exaggerate. But the fact remains that with the change in season comes the temptation to forgo your fashionable threads, and rug up in tracksuit pants, thermals and – dare we say it – ugg boots, instead. Cue shudder.
While the chilly stay inside weather will soon be upon us, there’s no reason to be sloppy with your style. Instead, the key is to be smart and find the perfect sartorial solution to ensure you don’t fall victim to a winter wardrobe rut.
A luxe look-at-me statement necklace is the smart girl's solution to staying chic yet cosy during winter. Sure, a dazzling neckpiece won’t exactly keep you snug and warm during the chilly months ahead, but it will instantly transform your drab go-to winter ensemble from “so not” to “so hot”, regardless of how casual your outfit may be.
Case in point: You’re heading out to brunch or to the movies with your girlfriends, but it’s cold and rainy outside, so you don’t feel like getting out of your well-worn skinny legs and an oversized sweater that’s seen better days. No problem. Just slip on a bold, bejewelled necklace over your jumper, and you’ll look fresh, funky and effortlessly cool, rather than like you just rolled out of bed and ran out the door. Too easy.
After searching high and low for our favourite head-turning neckpieces (it’s a tough gig, but someone’s got to do it!), here’s our edit of 21 statement stunners that you’re sure to fall in live with, and wear during winter and beyond.
Which one do you love?
