Accessories can truly make or break an outfit. This season it seems that how you wear your accessories can make all the difference. A trend that has been turning heads this season is sporting thick, intricate necklaces under the collar as neckties. This is a totally chic way of incorporating the menswear (e.g. collared shirts and blazers) into your wardrobe while keeping your look feminine.
I spotted this Fashionista during finals week and was impressed by her use of this trend. This Fashionista pulls of this style beautifully by wearing a gold, woven necklace under the collar of her black, sleeveless button-down. She tucks her shirt into a pair of high-waisted khaki shorts, held up by a braided leather belt. On her feet she wears a pair of black oxford shoes. She accessories with various gold bangle bracelets, beads and a pair of tortoise shell sunglasses.
If you’re like this Fashionista and would like to start wearing your accessories in a new and fashionable way, try the Trinidad Necklace from GOLDFINCH boutique or the On The Fringe necklace from NASTY GAL. Both necklaces would look adorable tucked under a denim button-down.
If you’re a little more adventurous and would like to incorporate bold colors or wild patterns into your ensemble, try this awesome Studded Chiffon Blouse in crimson or this Tux Crop Top in fuchsia. Both tops would look absolutely fabulous on their own or accessorized with a necklace as a necktie. Be daring this summer and try this trend.
