1. Bib Necklaces
Bibs are not just for babies. In fact, bib necklaces can make you look extremely elegant and classy if worn properly. Layers of beautiful bling make up these large statement pieces and typically cascade down your neck for an overly dramatic effect.
Pulling off a bib necklace can be tough if you are wearing a flashy outfit or too many other accessories. Make the bib necklace the centerpiece of your outfit however, and impress everyone.
2. Multi-Layered Chains
Layering different lengths necklaces is always trendy. However, what’s even better than a DIY layer is a single neckl piece that comes layered as one.
Sport a simple, thinly veiled chain layer, or opt for a more funky piece with chains, baubles, and jewels. Whatever style you are going for, there is a multi-layered chain necklace to make you feel cool, sexy, or beautiful.
