Sometimes all you need is one standout accessory to make an outfit party perfect. Here are five of my favourite necklaces right now.
This is an absolute showstopper of a necklace and such a modern way to wear pearls. It completely turns the conventional notion of pearls (twee, ladylike) on its head.
Oversized pearl necklace, €125 at uterque.com
Pendants had a strong presence on the SS18 catwalks. This piece from & Other Stories makes a contemporary statement and will add a modern finish to frills and ruffles.
Square amulet necklace, €59 at & Other Stories
This piece looks stunning worn with a shirt, creating the impression of a pussy bow blouse. The colour is subtly festive, and the brooch detailing adds an elegant touch.
Bow necklace with brooch, €17.95 at Topshop
I like when something traditionally unpleasant or frightening is reinvented into something beautiful. This serpent necklace is a perfect example. It will add a hint of toughness to your party outfit.
Long serpent necklace, €170 at bimbaylola.com
This is a beautifully textured piece but not fussy at all. Black and gold offers a very modern interpretation of traditional festive colours.
Metal appliqué necklace, €29.95 at Zara
