One of my favorite trends lately is the Statement Necklace.
I’ve tried to hop on the adorable scarf bandwagon, and just can’t. I can’t stand to have bulky things wrapped around my neck (I’ve never worn a turtleneck in my life…ever) because I feel like I am strangling. But the statement necklace is a happy medium for me — I get an adorable accessory without feeling like I’m being choked.
Statement necklaces are great for pregnant ladies (they ALWAYS FIT!!), or for dressing a casual outfit up for the evening. Simple tank tops, fitted T-Shirts, solid colored dresses, and cardigans all work really well with a large, chunky necklace. Keep your earrings on the smaller side to keep from looking “over done” and you’ve got it down!!
Here are a few of my favorites for under $50:
I really love the mint color that has gotten so popular this season. It goes with almost anything, and is really flattering.

I really really love the unique shape of this necklace…and the color is so perfect for Fall!! Pair it with some bronze studs and a fitted black T shirt and you’ve got a simple but adorable look.

I love this black necklace because it goes with just about anything…but I think it would look best with a red top like THIS one and maybe some black leggings and casual boots.

Yellow has gotten really popular this past year…it provides such a fun pop of color without being too much. Pair this necklace with a white shirt, dark cropped denim, and cute flats (like THESE in gold) for a classy but casual look.

This pretty pale shade of pink would look perfect with so many other colors — mint, grey, black, white, blue…it’s light enough that it can almost count as a neutral. It’s also small enough that it’s not too much for every day, but large enough to get noticed.
