As the holiday season approaches, fashionistas will soon be piling on the bling, and as a result, turning up the glamour factor. With countless holiday soirées on the social calendar, trendsetters will have plenty of occasions to drape themselves in finery. Whether you’re sporting a little black dress or shimmering in an embellished blouse, look no further than the season’s runways for your accessory inspiration. From Valentino to Alexander McQueen, here are our best ways to rock the season’s layered necklace trend.
For a more understated take on the trend, try styling your basic black or navy knits with a series of long silver chains (as seen at Valentino). The look of gleaming silver, paired with dainty twinkling charms, makes this an entirely wearable trend for either night or day. If you’re heading to a Friday night holiday event right after work, thin layered chains can certainly carry you from morning to evening.
Funky and Fashion-Forward
If you prefer bold accents, the look spotted on the Moschino runway will certainly suit your sartorial tastes. As the festive season approaches, capture the ornaments on the Christmas tree with layered strings of pearls and gangster inspired chain necklaces. From glistening pearls to jagged metallic chains, try bringing a slight edge to your holiday accessorizing.
Ethereal and ladylike
For your upscale holiday gatherings, take the layered necklace look one step further with dangling, looped chains and embellishment. Channel the style on the Alexander McQueen catwalk, with bejewelled pendants and sparkling stars and butterflies for a decorative touch. Slip into a seductive black lace frock, and combine the shimmering beauty of the holidays with definite sex appeal.
