While I am traditionally more of an ‘earring girl’, the necklaces this season are seriously making me reconsider my jewelry choices. It all started with my obsession with Marni’s chunky and architectural pieces a year ago. They are the perfect balance of playful colors and artful sophistication. But, oh dear, the necklace craze has only intensified. I’m currently coveting Vera Wang’s hot pink multi-colored glass necklace here at Presse. And naturally, after the necklace was featured in Vogue my fixation on these bold collar-like necklaces was solidified. Upon attending Vera Wang’s Spring/Summer 2009 fashion show, I am aching for the oversized chain-link crystalline necklaces to come to market. Pair one of these statement-making necklaces with a simple t-shirt and jeans and you strike the perfect balance of effortless chic!
