What's a Statement Necklace Anyway?

I'm going to be honest, I kept hearing this term "statement necklace" and I had no idea what it meant.  Did it mean the necklace itself makes a statement? Why did I "need" one?  Well, I'm still not sure I know, but I am wearing the necklace above all the time. While I don't know if it makes a statement, I do know it makes every outfit better.  It can also take a day outfit into the night and it just as easily completes a cocktail dress look.  Is this why I "needed" a statement necklace? Ha!

 From the very second I tried on this necklace at the store I loved it.  It was the perfect accessory for my cocktail dress.


What I didn't know is that I would wear it out with my jeans to dinner,

to celebrate my 8th wedding anniversary,

 and I even wore it to the Nutcracker Market, shopping with my family! 

Here are a few of my favorite "statement" necklaces:
 I saw this one at Target.  This picture doesn't do it justice.  The crystals are clear like diamonds not grey looking.  Clear Stone Collar Short Necklace -Target 

Michael Kors 'Very Hollywood' Collar Necklace  This is the one I'm wearing above.


  1. So which one are you wearing? The Michael Kors collar?

  2. love both the necklace and top,where are they from? Adorable! :)

  3. Looove both your green top and necklace? So pretty! Where are they from? Love your blog,its becoming one of my favs!

  4. The green shirt is from J. Crew last year, sorry:( I'm glad you guys like it. The necklace is the Michael Kors collar.

  5. I've been on the lookout for a great necklace to go with most anything and have felt so lost with the huge array at stores! Thanks for this post! Is there a general rule for what size necklace goes with what collar style? (i.e. are long necklaces worn best with button-down-the-front shirts, etc.).
