My new obsession.
Adding one of these to an outfit just gives it that bit of... 'Ju Ne Sais Quoi'.
Although it poses a rather daunting question.
"What on earth can I wear one of these with?"
The answer is so simple, as they can be worn with whatever you like. T-shirts, crewneck sweaters, pretty dresses, shirts, blouses, throw on some neck candy for that touch of sartorial swag and you're good to go.
The recent shows showed tonnes of styled to perfection fashionista's in their statement necklaces, captured in true street style glory. All the way from London to New York and from Milan to Paris, neck candy was a huge feature, whether worn over a simple shirt and trouser to add a dash of sophisticated chic, or layered up on clashing print look for an added touch of that 'wow' factor.
This huge publicity for neck candy has now made them readily available all over the high street, and not just from high end designers. I've included a couple of my favourite pieces from Net-A-Porter's amazing selection, especially from J.Crew, Shourouk & Eddie Borgo, but pop into stores such as Topshop & New Look on the Great British High-Street and you could buy a full array of neck candy - maybe even one for every day of the week?
I've styled mine with a vintage graphic print sweater, leather trousers and wedged sneakers (outfit post to follow shortly). How would you style yours?
