the statement necklace is my version of the tie

by martha

men are so lucky. as a lawyer i’m required to wear a suit more days than not. boring! unless i want to spend a fortune on a new suit for every day of the week i go around looking the same every day. men, on the other hand, can change up their business attire with one tie. one tie, oh the humanity. that’s not fair, not to mention the fact that they can wear comfortable shoes while we are wearing heels that pinch our toes.

it took me a while to figure it out but i now change necklaces to add a new layer to my business attire. look at these pictures. these necklaces are just some from my collection. there are some beautiful necklaces out there with all different price points. i found these necklaces from right to left at swank- atlanta; etc jewelry here in birmingham; intermix; regina at gus mayers; and marella, also here in birmingham

statement necklaces are not just for the “lawyer” look but for my casual wear too. it is amazing what a great necklace can do to a simple blouse and a pair of jeans. statement pieces are also great transition pieces from one season to the next. so the next time you are thinking about an item of clothing maybe try a necklace. i think you will be pleasantly surprised.
