Trendspotting: Fringed Metal Necklaces

How they wear it: Fergie in a Malandrino necklace; Kim Kardashian in a silver necklace; Kara DioGuardi in a Danielle Stevens necklace ($78,

Fringed metal necklaces add glamour to evening looks and interest to casual daytime outfits, making them a hot accessory for spring. No need to pay a lot for this trendy item, they are everywhere! I was gifted a chain fringe necklace by Apt. 9 from Kohl's which I almost didn't even try on because I thought it was too flashy and "rocker" for me, but once I did, I was hooked. There's something about the way they accent the neckline that's surprisingly flattering and uncomplicated. Here are some budget-friendly fringed metal necklaces from around the web—would you wear one?

I would and have! I've found another affordable version on Etsy. (
I love it paired with a white t-shirt.
