What spring trend do European royalty and American socialites have in common? Surprisingly, it’s oversize tribal beaded bib necklaces, as seen on Spanish Princess Letizia and The City‘s Olivia Palermo. The Princess wore hers to an event this week, and Palermo just debuted a new line of bib necklaces for Roberta Freymann, but the jury is still out whether the look will catch on with the rest of us. Here are a few pretty styles we’d try:
The Soft Shine Necklace by Anthropologie ($80) is a pretty, subtle take on the tribal trend. We love that it has beads and sequins, and that the ribbon tie is long, so you can wear it as short or as long as your heart desires.
If you want a black/silver version to wear at night, try the Blu Bijoux Crystal Encrusted Ribbon Bib Necklace ($45, down from $118). The bright stones are classy and dress up pretty much any solid top or dress.
Channel your inner socialite with this gorgeous Sachin + Babi’s Gaudi Necklace ($200). It’s a great piece for Spring/Summer; we especially love the bright purple stones and ribbon.
