Give Your Wardrobe a Glitzy Upgrade with a Show-Stopping Statement Necklace from TheFind!

Unless I have something brand new hanging in my closet just begging to be worn for the first time, I almost always feel stumped about what to wear for a night-out occasion, no matter how many party-ready frocks I already have. For some reason, my gut reaction to my already-worn attire is nearly always the need to stifle a yawn (such is the life of an insatiable fashionista, I suppose), and I'm always faced with the sudden desire to freshen things up somehow, often on the fly!

One quick solution to livening up a tried and true (and therefore somewhat tired) wardrobe is a statement necklace -- you'd be surprised at how much impact just one key piece can have on an otherwise "blah" or simple outfit, and transform a more casual look into something chic and upscale. Opt for something pretty and boudoir-inspired like this Alberta Ferretti bead-and-tulle necklace, or something a bit more rough around the edges yet still gorgeous like this natural-cut amethyst and stone necklace by Dannijo. Go for an elegant take on the tribal trend with this bib necklace from Falconiere, or try an unexpected pop of color with something unique like this gold-plated coral necklace by Kenneth Jay Lane. Or, if you dig the layered look, this dramatic multi-chain necklace proves that edgy can still be glamorous!
