Trend Alert: Pendant Necklaces
May 16, 2007
Why: Celebrities love this look — even Britney, who can’t seem to dress herself lately. It’s an excellent way to bring attention up towards the face and off a heavy set of hips. You can also lengthen the neck when worn on long chains or bring some glitz to your cleavage.
How to wear it? Don these long necklaces on casual days when you want to add something special to an otherwise nonchalant ensemble or a summer dress. Choose a deep V-neck tunic, boatneck top or something with an empire waist in a solid color so that the emphasis is on the jewelry. If you’re going to wear a busy print or an embellished top, skip this trend.
We’re big fans of a basic circle pendant, that’s simple, yet glamorous, such as this cool gold hammered swirl pendant necklace. Another beautiful style is a teardrop like Kenneth Jay Lane’s long crystal drop pendant necklace. If you want to get more personalized, cameos like Paris wears are also pretty.
Since there are so many styles to choose from, we decided to give you a some choices. Browse through these picks from ShopStyle and you’re bound to love one of them.
