While on her way into Lana Del Rey's concert in LA, Freida Pinto showed us how to make an all-black outfit instantly pop: just throw on a colorful bib necklace. The actress wore a sleeveless button-down blouse, which she tied at the bottom, black skinny jeans, metallic cutout flats, and carried a quilted black chain-handle bag. But it was her green-and-gold beaded bib necklace that did all the dazzling. We love that she put it on over the collar of her blouse for a nonchalantly cool vibe. Next time you get dressed up in all black, remember Freida's touch — a colorful statement necklace —to give your outfit major oomph.
I never considered wearing a beaded rope necklace until I came across one in the jewelry sale section at Macy's. I mean, for $6, I couldn't refuse. Although I bought it to use mainly as a bracelet, it evolved into a necklace at a recent event. These Appartement a Louer Beaded Rope Necklaces ($175 each), similar to mine, are really nice, but not worth the money.

Hot mama Halle Berry visited the dentist's office in a casual, clean ensemble. I can just envision her effortlessly throwing on her Inhabit cowl-neck linen dress over a gray camisole, adding a long beaded necklace, and beaded T-strap sandals. To tie a nice bow around the look, Halle incorporated beaded bracelets, her Tom Ford sunnies, and favorite Versace bag. Au natural with a pinch of glamour.
