>> Add a bit of glam to a casual button-up with this easy styling trick, spotted on the streets of New York Fashion Week. Try tempering the glitz of a bold necklace by wearing it over your shirt but under the collar, just like you would a bow-tie. This allows just a little sparkle to peek out — without overpowering the rest of your look. See below for a few cute necklace options.
Fringe necklaces come in all styles this fall--from haute hippie to goth goddess. We love statement necklaces so this trend is right up our alley. Wear one of these fringe necklaces during the day with classic jeans and a t-shirt, and, for evening, with your favorite LBD and platform sandals. Both looks will go from classic to high fashion in an instant.
SS2 looks like she's ready for Valentine's Day. I'm smitten with her sugary sweet abstract print dress. To add some diversity to her outfit, she contrasted her flirty frock with platform boots and a stunning statement necklace — nice!

Congrats to SS2!

There couldn't be a better time for Fiona Paxton's range of embroidered statement necklaces inspired by 1920's glamour. But don't chalk it up to mere coincidence, the designer has worked on prints and embroideries for the likes of Moschino, Armani, and Chloe so it's safe to assume she knows a thing or two about trends. The collection, launched in 2008, is already selling out on Kabiri (a great place to find jewelry from up-and-comers) and is only bound to expand as 2009 is slated to be as accessories-dominant as ever. Paxton's necklaces start around $210 and are hand beaded. To learn more about the designer, click here.
When new arrivals pop up on Pixie Market you can bet there will be a statement necklace or two and this week, there's a new offering in that category from Daydream Nation. This yarn choker reminded us of that which we saw on the 3.1 Phillip Lim runway, by jeweler Eddie Borgo. We love the way these necklaces sit as they're easy to wear with just about any blouse or dress in your wardrobe.
We've been stalking this accessories line, Ka Pow Wow, since we first noticed their necklaces were selling out on Pixie Market faster than a pair of black Louboutins do on Net-a-Porter. Ka Pow Wow makes to most wonderful ruffled pieces that, for a little more than one hundred dollars, are a real bang-for-your-buck investment. Spring 2009 was a season where statement accessories happily took the place of it-bags and so we think there's no better time for Ka Pow Wow than the present. Check out various look book images from the brand below.
How I love Rihanna, let me count the ways . . . Severe statement necklace a la Burberry. Perfectly fitted black jumpsuit — check out the sharp shoulders, cropped leg, and pockets. Pointy toe pumps. And smiley face nails! Not only is the jumpsuit/necklace combo fantastic, the playful nails are pure Rihanna style. She knocked our socks off with her anti-ball gown at the Jingle Bell Ball in London. Daring and creative looks like this granted her a spot on our Queen of the Red Carpet 2008 poll.

Like artwork, jewelry needs a nice backdrop. To make a sizzling statement, look to Natasha Bedingfield for inspiration and top your turtleneck. Layering a bold necklace over a nondescript turtleneck gives you high impact without breaking the bank. And, it's a cozy chic look. The key to getting this right is keeping the rest of your outfit simple so your jewels can shine against their cloth canvas.
