Funky Chunky

Thursday, April 01, 2010

One of my favorite fashion trends in recent years is the look of layered, chunky necklaces.  There are so many reasons I love these necklaces. They provide so much dimension and interest to any outfit.  They can be a great accent to a plunging neckline.  And a simple jeans and t-shirt can really pop with a funky, chunky necklace.

Having had kids in the last three years, I went through a period where I felt frustrated about wearing jewelry because as we all know nothing says, “grab me” to a baby like a shiny necklace.  The chunky necklace has helped turn that around.  Several of the necklaces I’ve purchased are very sturdy and can hold up to an inquisitive baby and toddler. 

One of my top favorite stores for funky, chunky accessories is Charming Charlie.   They’ve got a great line of beautiful, affordable necklaces and accessories in every shade of the rainbow.  For example, this little beauty they’ve got for their spring line.  If you can find a Charming Charlie in your area, I’d highly recommend checking them out.  You won’t be disappointed.

Another great resource for inexpensive jewelry is Forever 21. If you don’t have one in your area, you can order from their website.  A great way to spend an evening is to browse their website.  Or if you are like me, you’ve been snowed in for so many days you need something new to check out.  So check out something chic like this Netted Gems Necklace.  How great would this necklace look with some bright spring colors?

So what do you think of the chunky necklace phenomenon?  Got a great place you love to shop for these goodies?  Ok, dish.

For myself I'm not into extremely chunky jewelry especially necklaces but it seems to be all the rage right now including those heavily chunked out bib necklaces. It is a way to dress up a very plain outfit or the simple "little black dress" which is in every womans closet. Plus with a chunky necklace you don't have to wear too much else and some simple earrings will definitely put all the focus on this token piece.

I love necklaces they add any kind of "spark" into anyyyy outfit. I can't leave the house without wearing a necklace. I think that necklaces can either casual-ize any outfit or dress it up!

Chunky necklaces are so fun to wear with an understated dress! Ones with colorful baubles or fake jewels can create the perfect relaxed and put-together look very easily. Forever 21 is also a great place to find big rings (although they may eventually leave green stains on your skin!) and bracelets.... cheap and cheerful!
