While we’re all for tackling a tricky accessory trend—fanny packs and larger-than-life jewelry come to mind—once in a while, we feel a little sigh of relief when a completely wearable style comes into vogue. The look of the moment? A delicate bar necklace that can be worn with any outfit, for any occasion. Click through to see how this minimal piece of jewelry can go from the red carpet (on Doutzen Kroes) to the grocery store (on Reese Witherspoon).
While the bar necklace can easily stand alone, it also plays well with others. Alba went for a layered look by pairing shorter and longer strands with her Jennifer Zeuner Lowercase Block Nameplate Necklace ($176).

We love how Barrymore got creative and engraved her rescue dog’s name on her Jennifer Meyer Personalized Nameplate ($1285).
Trop proved the more, the merrier by mixing her Jennifer Zeuner bar necklace with other jewelry.

Do you think of your personal style as classic, perhaps with a dash of prep? The bar necklace works for your sensibilities, too. Just pair it with a cute crewneck sweater, like Witherspoon did with her Jennifer Meyer Personalized Nameplate ($1285).
