Guess what, ladies? The holidays are quite literally around the corner, which means it’s time to start to start thinking about—what else?—festive fashion attire. While “bring on the sequins!” may be some gals’ holiday mantra, others prefer to jazz up basic pieces with the help of some choice accessories. Though dangling earrings, sleek cuffs and cocktail rings are all worthy candidates, there’s just something about a fabulous statement necklace that really screams “party-ready.”
Whether you prefer bold stones, sleek metal or oversized collar styles, a good statement necklace provides an extra bit of pizzaz to anything from a full skirt and blouse combo, to a chic skinny black suit. Of course, if you’re more of a jeans type of gal and don’t intend to change that during holiday time (good for you, we say!), a bold necklace is all you’ll need to kick your casual getup up a notch.
Here, we’ve highlighted 18 versions that are super-chic (and super-bold, in some cases) and won’t bust your budget. Happy shopping!
