In this weekly column, I’m bringing you my favorite budget-friendly accessory that’s available online or in-stores. This week, we’re talking jewelry. Make sure to check out my blog SydneStyle.com for more affordable fashion inspiration!
A crystal collar necklace is a great statement piece to have in your wardrobe because a) it never goes out of style and b) you can use it to create endless looks. I’m loving Charming Charlie’s Close Call Collar necklace ($25). The burnished chain gives it a vintage feel that makes it seem much more expensive.
You can wear the necklace on it’s own over t-shirts, dresses and blouses. You can also use it as a layering piece. When combining statement necklaces, stick to similar metals. I layered mine with another antique-style chain.
A little DIY tip? If you ever get bored of your crystal necklace, break out the nail polish! Adding a coat of color to some of the crystals gives it a whole new vibe. I went neon for a ‘90s party last year (HERE). But you could do any color polish you have in your beauty cabinet.
