These days I'm pretty much into statement necklaces, perhaps it's the weather (but today seems to be cooler though!) and my neck is on show a lot more!
I used to be an earring mania big time, I still am and still like wearing a pair of lovely earrings (usually studds now) every time when I go out. At the same time my focus has shifted onto these statement necklaces I have in my collection.
I found my fashion style is changing gradually. I'm never satisfied with just a plain white tee and a pair of jeans. I always want to add something fancy in my total outfit, be it a handbag, a pair of sunglasses or a floral pattern top. Some thing has to stand out in my outfit.
Therefore wearing a statement necklace seems to be able to satisfy my forever changing appetite, which has also made me wanting to wear plain colour top more than ever before; for the sake of wearing necklaces!

This peter pan collar necklace was purchased on my trip to Hong Kong few months ago. I haven't wore this for many times yet but it is such a pretty looking necklace that I thought it would always be on trend and add some sparkle to a boring outfit - ideal for an evening night out, perhaps?
This off-white plus bronzy-gold two parts design necklace was probably my first statement necklace I bought from M&S a few years ago. It was about £15. I thought at the time it was rather expensive but since then I have worn it to death. I mainly wore it in the summer on a plain white top which makes the whole outfit pop!
This is probably one of my favourites of all. I had my eyes on these when it was first released in Zara but the original price was something like £29.99. Even though it's such a pretty looking necklace, I couldn't justify myself by spending £30 on a necklace (not sure why I was being so sensible). Therefore I waited and waited until the Winter Sale a few months ago and I snapped it up immediately as I saw it reduced down to £9.99! I have since worn it for so many times!
This feather necklace was also a purchase from Hong Kong. It could be used as a brooch as it's got a clip at the back of the panel. I have enjoyed wearing it every time as it always makes my outfit looks really classy and elegant. It goes especially well with a LBD!
This was one of my most satisfactory purchase in my trip to Seoul. Seoul is a place full of small boutiques apart from the usual chained stores that you can find. I've started to really like pearl and this just fits the bill - full of pearls design and the beige/ natural tone of colour just makes it so versatile and goes with anything. It makes a casual outfit pop and adds elegancy to an evening outfit.
Here's a quick look at how I wore some of my statement necklaces.....
