There are times when a neck needs some sparkle.
This season is that time, and these are the statement necklaces we'll be wearing with everything. While channeling Holly Golightly a la Breakfast at Tiffany's - pretzel and coffee in hand.
Whether you like to get dressed up during party season or not, these styles can be worn over chunky knit jumpers (perhaps not the chintzy Christmas variety), shirts, tees, boilersuits and boxy tops as well as a killer cocktail dress.
A really wow necklace will take your outfit to look-at-me status. Especially when paired with a statement clutch bag.
Look for something with oversized beads, gemstones, diamantés, studs and charms. Think crown jewels but much, much more affordable.
Necklaces like this should not be saved for best (that rule is rubbish), and there's no such thing as day/evening wear - they work 24/7.
Zara's beautiful blingy rhinestone necklace (£19.99) is a dainty nod to statement sparkle, though the metal mesh and crystal necklace (£29.99) will fast-track you to FABULOUS.
Topshop has a glitzy line up to suit every girl, we've got our magpie eye on the black plaited collar detailed with assorted beads, glass rhinestones and imitation pearls (£100). All that you need to sex up that little red dress.
Ladies with a big budget for bling this season should peruse the collections at Harvey Nichols, Selfridges and online at Farfetch and Net-a-Porter because they are to die for.
