The bib/tapered necklace is the season’s ultimate way to make a statement — its short length is flattering to every body type.
The impact it makes is so versatile – it can take you from day to evening. Try one with a classic shift dress for your daytime job. Come weekend, let the bib necklace add sparkle and glamour to your basic LBD. On weekends, pair it with a tanktop, jeans, and sandals for a chic weekend look.
With spring’s gradual shedding of layers, swap out your functional scarves for neckpieces that scream “elegance.” This springtime, let the bib necklace be your accessory of choice. Meanwhile, here’s a list that will help you wear bib necklaces right anytime:
1. Pair it right.
Make sure the necklace should sit right over the neckline of the shirt — almost like a collar. If you’re going to wear this style over a dress, the necklace should complement the neckline of the dress – strapless, sweetheart, and scoop neck necklines. Bib necklaces don’t work well with square and bateau necklines.
2. Keep other accessories to a minimum.
Keep your other accessories minimal and let the necklace do the talking. Because bib necklaces are statement jewelries, they must be considered the “center of attention.”
Think of bib necklaces as a way to express your personality. Rock edgy studs for an instant tough-girl chick look. Try colorful beading for a Bohemian feel. Tie on a beribboned style for a touch of lady-like luxe.
Ready to deck out your fave new dress or make your go-to T-shirt look anything but basic? Our very own bib necklaces can easily crank up the volume on any outfit while remaining elegant.
