Joan Rivers Statement Necklace

Joan Rivers Statement Necklace

The summer of 2009 was all about the hand. The most popular accessory was the statement ring with a “the bigger the better” attitude. And that has definitely not faded, you’re still going to find statement rings everywhere but the winter 2009 season has taken the attention away from the hand and turned it on the neck.

Part of the focus change on accessories for women in the winter 2009 is that hands are often covered in gloves and it’s difficult to wear a statement ring with a pair of gloves. The next obvious place to go is the neckline. One statement that’s incredibly easy to carry off in the winter and one that is actually a holdover from the summer 2009 season is the scarf. Scarves can be a fairly inexpensive fashion accessory and is an easy way to make a bold statement.

The other accessory that is making a huge comeback is the necklace and again it’s along the line of “the bigger the better”. A large statement necklace can be hard to wear and if you’re going to go that route it’s important to let your statement speak for itself, don’t overwhelm it with too many other accessories or with clashing clothing. Last season there was a bib necklace hubbub but it didn’t seem to really catch on, but winter 2009 may be the season this trend actually catches on.

One thing to remember as you focus on your neckline during the winter 2009 season is to let the statement accessory shine by itself. But you also have to do some shining yourself, don’t let the accessory stand out more than you do, if it’s too big and overwhelming then it might not be a good statement for you.
