Chunky costume necklaces are back in a big way this season. And it doesn’t take much to find a great one for under $100. Talk about a major bang for your buck.
Alas, this stunner from Rochas’ F/W 13 collection is currently sold-out. But if we ever manage to get our hands on one, we’d style the versatile piece six ways to Sunday.

We love how the rectangular crystals on this sold-out Dries Van Noten F/W 13 necklace are offset by the thin silver-plated band. It’s ‘90s minimalism meets early ‘00s bling.
Out on the VMA after-party circuit in New York, the singer’s rhinestone choker (almost) diverted attention from the plunging neckline of her Balmain Jacquard V-Neck Dress ($2187). An eye-catching accessory is a fail-safe way to spice up a little black dress.

Denim and rhinestones are a classic combination (as any southern belle will tell you). Here, the model gives the look a modern twist with a tailored blazer and shirt from GANT Rugger. Note how she buttons her blouse all the way up to better showcase the necklace.

If Vogue’s Queen Bee wears a look, you can trust it’s going to stick around for a while. Wintour put a Park Avenue doyenne spin on the statement necklace when she paired it with a natty tweed suit during New York Fashion Week last month. That her younger companion is wearing a similar piece proves the trend has trans-generational appeal.
All that glitters is not a statement necklace as Eva Mendes made evident with the vintage-inspired bauble that she designed and wore to the of launch of her New York & Company collection in Manhattan last month.

At the L'Oreal’s Women In Digital NEXT Generation Awards in New York, the Newsroom actress’s sparkling bib necklace, together with a fuchsia lip, added just the right amount of oomph to her understated dress from the Thakoon Addition Resort 13 collection.
Why have one bold accessory when you can have two? Spotted in her hometown, Madrid, the Collage Vintage blogger channeled a romantic boho vibe with an embellished clutch and collar necklace. If you do double up, just be sure to keep your outfit simple lest things start to look cluttered.
The Style Scrapbook blogger hit the Manhattan streets in an & Other Stories dress, Mango cap, Balenciaga Buckle Strap Ankle Boot ($1,275), and Proenza Schouler PS11 Classic Textured-Leather Shoulder Bag ($1950). Her sizable necklace adds detail to the ensemble and prevents it from looking too sporty.
No makeup? No problem. A strand of shiny stones adds instant polish to a low-maintenance look.
