New Ways To Wear A Necklace

2fers and layering were very popular this winter. Since it's currently nice and warm outside, there really is no reason to layer right now (although wearing tank tops or vests over short-sleeved shirts is still a very cool look). I've recently spotted a new trend that seems to be Summer's answer to the 2fer: necklace tops. These are tops that either come with necklaces or have the necklaces attached to them. There are also necklace halters which have necklaces that go around the neck instead of the usual strings you would tie around your neck. Necklace dresses are in style too. Take a look below to see some stylish necklace tops and dresses that will keep you looking good this Summer.

For the tops that come with necklaces that can be unattached, you can remove the necklace and wear it with a different top. You can also try attaching a different necklace to the top. Also, don't be afraid to pair other accessories with your necklace top or dress. Try adding some bangle bracelets (article on bangles coming soon), hoop or chandelier earrings, some rings, and a flower or feather hair accessory for a fun Summer look. The only thing I would not reccomend doing is adding any more necklaces. Let the necklace on your top or dress be the one to stand out and make a statement.

Oh yeah! I saw tops like that around the city! I like wearing a LOT of jewelry...hahaha. Tara, do you think you could do a post about bow necklaces/or bows? Celebrities are wearing bow necklaces a lot and I've been dying to get one(without stones, of course). I love this blog! Forever 21 is my favorite store, so it's nice to find different things here that are cheap! :)

Yeah, I like wearing a lot of jewelry too. :) Forever 21 is also one of my favorite stores (which is why I post a lot of stuff from there on here). I try to make sure most of the things I feature in this blog are reasonably priced. I myself am not exactly financially blessed so I like to feature fashion items that are cute yet still affordable for people like me.

I actually did write an article about bows back in December 08, but nothing specifically about bow necklaces. That's a good idea. I'll definitely look into it. :)
