A Sweet Mix of Metals– the Layered Chain Collar

26 Feb

Recently, we talked statement necklace. What’s incredible about this style is that your closet can be filled with neutrals and basics. But suddenly your simple leggings and tee becomes a complete look with the addition of a statement collar. Or if your closet is filled with colors and prints, a statement piece can amp up your look. This spring Sweet Bling is no stranger to bringing you this statement.

We have metal on the mind with this Sweet Bling statement collar. What we dig about this piece is it features silver, gold, and dark crystals. Choosing a bracelet, ring, or earrings to pair with this look would be no trouble. When it comes to choosing clothing, wear with black and white, or your wildest of patterns. The mix of metals gives you endless pairing alternatives.

Here, I’m heading out to dinner with friends, full of laughter. I chose to wear this piece with a high collared sheer white tank and black skinny cropped pants. My closet is filled with black and white. This look would be a classic paired with some fun flats. But for me, I like adding a bit of an edge with my black leather Steve Madden Troopa lace-up boots.

New York Fashion Week 2014 Makes a Statement

20 Feb

New York Fashion Week has reached its close. We were given a preview of what Fall 2014 will have to offer. Statement necklaces are hitting lines with a boom. Heart and Gamble came to the runway with bright laser cut jewelry pieces extending beyond shoulder width and covering the chest—solely works of art, with no intentions of reaching the streets. But what we can draw from these looks is neutral clothing with a bright pop of color in a jewelry piece is a must do. We can also thank Nicole Miller for presenting beads and layering among black necklaces with a more ready to wear objective on top of her dark clothing designs. Roberto Cavalli also truly mesmerized with his repetitive use of gold, texture, and extravagant patterns in his sparkling clothing pieces. Not stopping there, Cavalli completed many looks with heavy metal, gold necklaces and collars. The common theme—statement necklace. Now we watch for London, Milan, and Paris! Au revoir!
