ring around the collar

I may be dating myself with the title of this latest blog...it is a tag line from an old laundry commercial...but I am not chatting about that necessary evil today....I am back on accessories for fall.  Nothing can update your look more quickly than adding a fun new accessory to transition from one season to the next and the latest twist on the statement necklace has me very excited--the collar necklace.
The last couple of years people have been sporting some major bling around the neck--ribbons laden heavily with gems, sparkling bib necklaces--and those are still relevant for certain.  The addition of the collar necklace can be a fresh look at having a unique and ornate piece to carry your outfit like Topshop's Chain and Tassel Collar, or you can make an impact with more simplicity, like this Alexis Bittar Freeform Collar Necklace.  And back to Topshop, I love the Python Collar...pair it with a simple black tee for some major impact.  And the price is a winner as well.
You can find these modern chokers in silk, leather, a variety of metals, ornate or simple and in every price point.  One of my favorite looks when I am not going all snakeskin on you is just a simple metal piece--a modern day choker.  The Kenneth Jay Lane Textured Chain Bib Necklace was my choice for an everyday look with my favorite grey sweater or a wow factor for a night out.  Although currently sold out, you can find your own look by hunting through ShopStyle, my go-to to research where to find something specific in fashion.  Remember, whether you keep it simple or go ornate, this is a look that everyone can wear.  And of course your best accessory is always the one you have already, confidence.
