Collar Necklace Crazed

With fall fashion in full swing, I have been wearing lots of collared shirts to add a touch of sophistication to my daily wardrobe.  However, the plain collared shirt look can get a bit monotonous and dull, so I've been spicing up my outfits by wearing a variety of collar and bib necklaces to add some interest to my neckline.  Collar necklaces are a great way to add a subtle edge or a chic twist to your button downs, oxford shirts, and dress shirts with colors, textures, and styles that are endless.  From simple and classy, to daring and edgy, collar and bib necklaces are simple jewelry pieces that can really enhance your collared shirt outfits.  Below are some examples of the collar and bib necklaces I have worn recently, which are mostly of the edgy variety, and are primarily consistent of silver toned pieces (since I'm not all that fond of gold…but I try to keep my options open).  =]

A couple of occasions where I've worn a collar necklace.  Both necklaces worn will be featured with details individually below.  Bag by Alexander Wang, and boots by Jeffrey Campbell (in both shots).

Casual Country

It was a pretty chill day with only minor errands to run with my bestie, so I dressed comfortably for the occasion.  Since fall here in Hawaii is still pretty hot, I went for a more western style vibe, so I could still incorporate certain elements of fall, though keeping it appropriate for the warmer weather.  =]
