Spring Fashion Trend: Beaded Collars

Anything that helps us get dressed quickly and look effortlessly put-together is a big winner in our book, which is why we're loving the idea of beaded collars. Forget the struggle of finding the right accessories: With an embellished neckline, there's no need for a necklace, earrings become optional, and at the very most, all you need to dress your wrists is a bangle or two. (Hey, that's less money spent on baubles, too, right?)

Tunics, tanks and dresses all benefit from beaded collars. Tribal-inspired wooden beads look casually chic for day; dainty pearl embellishments add the perfect touch for a night out. As far as we're concerned, it's full bead ahead with this very wearable trend. Click the pics for product details...

I never paid attention to Forever 21 before because everyone I know kept saying that the clothes weren't well-made and the materials that they use are cheap, but after reading your post I think I'm going to check them out. I really love the leaf-printed dress, and the price is totally reasonable.

Isn't it cute? I'd pair with a thin belt, boho leather sandals, a light cardigan and straw tote for a day of spring shopping...
