ootd: make a statement

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

As I hinted about yesterday, today's Outfit Of The Day post is all about how to wear a statement necklace.

You see, after swooning over the now infamous JCrew Bubble necklace, I decided to take the plunge and buy one. But, I got it off Ebay because, yeah, no thanks on the $150 price tag.

Anywho, when it arrived, I was practically drooling over the endless outfit possibilities with my newest accessory. Here are a few different outfits that I came up with using my necklace.


This first one is a work look. You wouldn't think coral/orange and green would work together but they DO! I seriously love this cute combo.

Shirt: Old Navy
Pants: NY & Company
Shoes: Target (ancient)
Necklace: JCrew via Ebay


This is a bit more of a dressy look, appropriate for cocktails or fancier dinners. Of course, a POC (Pop Of Color) almost always works with black.

Dress: Daisy Fuentes via Kohls
Shoes: Rue 21
Necklace: JCrew via Ebay


This is one of my favorite looks. I rocked the one on the left all day on Saturday because it was so comfy and cute. A colored statement necklace can really be a great POC for any outfit, but don't let it stop there. The necklace is cool with the gray cardi, but in my opinion, the aqua cardi outfit looks even better.

So, if you're a bit of a color phobe, the look on right might be up your alley. The look on the left could be for the more adventurous souls.

Both Cardigans: Target
Tank: Rue 21
Skirt: Target
Necklace: JCrew via Ebay
Shoes: Unlisted via Amazon

Linking up with Lindsey over at the Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday.

    1. I agree! Though, to go out I might have to swap the wedges for flats...much easier to walk in. HAHA.

  8. I love that statement necklace. I want it in turquoise. Did you get it for a deal from Ebay? I found an almost exact replica for only $37 at a copycat etsy store. I couldn't pay $150 for the J Crew version! But even $37 on a necklace is really steep for me! You look awesome, though!

    1. April,
      I got the necklace shipped from Ebay for around $15. It came from China, so I had to wait a few weeks for shipping, but it's totally worth it!

  11. Very cute necklace! Love the bright pop of orange. My favorite among the outfits is the white tank/skirt with the aqua cardigan. It works really well with the orange necklace for a day-time look! :D

  12. I just ordered this exact same necklace today...in this color and turquoise! I'm so happy to see how pretty it looks on you. It looks great with each outfit you've styled it with.
    I never order on ebay and was a little hesitant. Now I'm so excited to get them. I want one in every single color! haha
    Very nice to meet you. I saw you at The Pleated Poppy.
