ACCESSORIES REPORT: The Bling Bib

When the word ‘bib’ comes to mind a young and trendy Fashionista may not be the first thing that pops into your mind. Typically, we associate bibs with babies but that is most certainly not the case here. The bib necklace is a staple piece for many Texas Christian Fashionistas. It can brighten up your go-to dress or change your outfit in its entirety. The bib necklace has been around for a few seasons. I would categorize under the large umbrella of statement jewelry, which is essential in any Fashionistas wardrobe.

The best part about unexpected accessories is how quickly you can style them. It takes about ten minutes to throw on a solid color dress and to select the perfect look-at-me necklace. The perfect combination for a summer night out or after work for a long night out.

This Fashionista is wearing a simple pale pink summer dress. She was able to enliven a solid go-to dress by throwing on a white layered bib necklace, some shiny gold flats and chevron inspired bracelets. She topped off her look with a sleek bun and fabulous two-toned gold and orange sunglasses. I really loved how the necklace pulled this summer look together. This Fashionista most definitely understands the simplicity that one should commit to after deciding on rocking a statement piece.

It is not hard to spot bib necklaces this summer. I have found some of my favorites at low price stores such as Forever 21, but it is not a bad idea to splurge on a good statement piece that can be styled endlessly. My favorite splurge ‘Blinged out Bib’ this season is a white floral piece from kate spade sold at Nordstom.

Spotted: Both bib necklaces and colorful statement jewelry in kate spade’s spring 2013 ready-to-wear line.
