Necklaces That Will Make The Simplest Outfit Look Stunning

Necklaces That Will Make The Simplest Outfit Look Stunning

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
