Or at the very least, your look. If you want to splurge on one item this season that you can wear with multiple outfits which will totally overhaul your entire wardrobe, it’s about time you were introduced to the short, statement necklace.
Here, our pick of the bunch.
Poatri Second Hand Collar, $60, The Iconic. This is an easy-to-wear piece which will go with most items in your wardrobe, but will add enough dazzle to make every outfit special.
Kenneth Jay Lane pearl necklace, $133.98. Big pearls right on your neckline will go perfectly with everything from this season’s pastel knits to little black dresses.
Gold toned resin and cord leather necklace, Marni, $535.15. This piece sums up everything that’s good in the world of accessories, will go with practically anything and will ultimately flatter every skin tone. It is the piece de resistance.
Oxidised silver, gold plated and rock crystal necklace, Bottega Veneta, $4919.14. This piece will not only transform your look, but your life may change too. You might get a better job, meet a new man, hail that taxi* … all with the help of this necklace. Lucky, ’cause it costs a bomb, but by George it’s worth it.
Spike neck cuff, River Island on The Iconic, $29.95. The unfinished necklace/ ring/ bracelet is the new way to wear jewellery, didncha know?
Palladium plated, blue crystal necklace, Swarovski, $710. Work this piece from day to night under a blazer or with a cool white shirt.
Pretend this Asos camelia choker, $23.53 is Chanel, and wear it everywhere.
Rose gold choker, $27.45, Asos. If there is one item that will update your look this season, this is it. It ticks both the rose gold and the choker trend boxes and works with lots of different looks.
I love the deceptively simple elegance of this, it’s a great way to dress up any outfit, and this is a piece you can throw on every day. Best of all, it’s only $26.22 on TopShop.
