Fashion Friday: We heart big 'ol chunky statement necklaces!!!!

It happened again... You were late running errands and you come home to your honey saying, 
Woops I forgot to tell you, we are having drinks tonight with Skippy and Skipper Mc Skip..... We have to leave in 15 minutes! 

OK.... Time to hustle. 

Skinny jeans? Check
Loosey Goosey Sexy tank? Check 
Little boy fitted blazer? Check
Fantastic boots? Check
Hair thrown up in a messy ballerina bun or loose side braid? Check

Now lets make this outfit "Night out" worthy... 
Big chunky crazy F*'d up necklace? CHECK CHECK CHECK!! 

You don't have to be Cleopatra to get the super statement necklace look down. 
In fact... If you learn to embrace this style, it can be your new best friend! 

Because these necklaces that we are in super heartsville with right now MAKE your outfit. 

They can take you from Coco classy.... 

To street savvy, all in just a short trip to your jewelry box.  

A statement necklace is a huge time saver, given that you can really throw them on at the end of your long day and viola, you are ready to go from work to dinner. 

But don't underestimate the collar necklace... Remember this brilliant moment? 

That turquoise necklace took that white dress to another level. 
How fantastic would this look be for a bride? Your welcome newly engaged readers! 

Here are a few of our fave picks for our (and your) jewelry collections.  

Throw on this braided blue rope and chain necklace from Top Shop with a white A. Wang tank top and some skinny jeans, add a cardi and you are super cute and ready to go! 
We love the mixture of rope, chain and fabric flowers on this beauty from Anthropologie
Beautiful but kinda fu*ked up.... 

Yep, this calls for a fitted black body con dress like this one, by Theory

A loose boyfriend cardi and a pair of tough boots

You will be throwing off a very Winona Ryder a'la Heather's vibe and really how is that not fantastic? 

For all you Coco lovers (Miss t.w.h) and anyone who just feels like rocking some bad-ass pearls... Well, here you go. 
Jill Golden's necklace is made for you! 

Big, Chunky and totally right now, these are not your Granny's pearls. 
But we would wear them like they were. Styled with a classic black cocktail dress and some sky high black pumps. If only smoking didn't give you cancer and we could have a cigarette holder to complete the look... Oh well, we will have to settle for wavy hair and red lips. 

We really love the rough cut stone Gemma Redux necklace. 

Something about the little traces of green are calling our names... And it kinda reminds us of something out of that movie the Dark Crystal... Total Kira the Gelfling style. 

We are really into this heavy black beaded necklace from Karen Walker

Pair this with a White sweater

a black mini skirt, black tights and a pair of beautiful L.A.M.B booties.... 

Your pretty much ready for what ever this winter has to throw at your! 

Lastly but not leastly (not a real word.) is this beautiful waterfall of shimmering gold mini discs... 

Really a statement maker. This piece by Lee Angel has 18 strands and is not for the faint of heart. 

We think it best to pair this with something really simple, like this black strapless Kova & T dress. 

These necklaces will make you wardrobe basics so much more exciting! 
Lets hope this holiday season all that gets chunky is your jewlery... Put down the spoon and step away from the stuffing!!!
