T'is the season for big, blinged-out baubles! When choosing your holiday wardrobe this year, don't fuss over fancy ensembles—instead, simply choose a sleek pantsuit or dress and then pile on the drama with a standout, statement-making necklace. There is literally something for every one in these designs, from romantic to edgy, mod to deco. Mixed metals can be paired with any color of the rainbow, adding texture and dimension as they cascade down a collar or fan out in a spray of chains. Bold gems and frothy fabric add instant zest to even the most blah-worthy ensemble and infusing a bit of color like a deep scarlet or rich sapphire provides the perfect finishing touch. The only word of caution is be sure to keep the rest of your jewelry minimal and let these statement-making stunners do the talking.
