Ring Around the Rosie

{Floral statement necklace: c/o Accessory Fanatic. Top: Zara.}

Since I chopped off my hair eons ago, I’ve had to forego earrings. They don’t work with the bob. My next go-to accessory: the statement necklace. The problem with statement necklaces is they do just that, they make a statement. And triple, quadruple, etc .. wears become a little too memorable. Wear it too much and you become that girl in that necklace. So, love your statement necklace, wear it wisely. Then, move on to the next one. The best way to do this: Accessory Fanatic. Owner Stephanie Nickolich wisely keeps her statement necklaces (she also carries rings, earrings, bracelets and more) at under $35 for the most part, which means you can wear your necklace just enough, move on to the next one and not have to worry about breaking the bank.

So what do you do with those statement pieces after they’ve worn out their welcome? Hold on to them. A few years down the road, integrate them back into rotation.
