You could have the most beautiful dress, but put some tacky bangles and an awful over-sized ring with it and your look is ruined. Or you could been wearing just a plain jersey skirt & top but pair it with some big statement earrings and a coordinating scarf and your outfit has gone from a 3 to a 10 in 2 items.
This blogpost is going to be all about a trend in which I have been loving for quite some time now and that is statement necklaces.
Statement necklaces are perfect for jazzing up a plain outfit and can take it from drab to fab in seconds and with most celebrities have jumping on the bandwagon I think this trend is going to be around for a while. Whatever high-street shop you go into this week I can guarantee that they will have a growing section of statement necklaces, weather a plain chain or multi-coloured with flowers on it, big necklaces have made a big impact.
I only have a few necklaces (and some of them are not even that physically big) but they are all necklaces that can be worn with a variety of outfits for both day and evening which helps make them look different everytime which I love!
Below I have included photos a few outfits with the necklaces that I have been loving lately. I, like a lot of you too I imagine, am on a budget and all of the necklaces I am going to show were actually no more than around £7 each.

Finally I just wanted to share one of my favourite necklaces and one of my best purchases I have ever made on eBay!
This is a copy of the necklace from House Of Harlow which is Nicole Richie's Jewellery line. I am such a big fan of Nicole and I always love her style and I had actually noticed her and other celebs such as Kristin Cavallari and the Kardashians wearing this necklace before and always wondered where it was from. So when I found out and saw the price I thought there was noway I would ever get one or anything like it.
Then one day whilst casually at jewellery on eBay (like you do) I saw an exact look-a-like for only around £2 or £3 and just HAD to get it! It was from hong kong and did probably take a couple of weeks to get here but for the price you can't complain.
