One True Thing: The Statement Necklace


A big bauble adds glamor to the everyday office look but can rise to an occasion after work

The Want: A bold necklace is the quickest way to upgrade an outfit. The piece must be stylish, not too gaudy, and versatile enough for both business lunches and after-work drinks.

The Get: J. Crew's (JCG) Pearl cluster bib necklace ($150 at jcrew.com). A reinvention of the classic pearl strand, the chain-mail bib meshes muted tones and subtle sparkle. This necklace adds a hefty dose of shine to an otherwise simple outfit. It looks equally polished when you're in the office, wooing clients, or out on the town—no matter what the season.

MISSION: STATEMENT

How to wear a bold necklace to the office

Rule 1: Wear a solid-colored top. Prints and stripes are distracting.

Rule 2: Don't pair with anything low-cut; you're better off wearing a classic scoop-neck shirt.

Rule 3: Wear only the bare necessities in rings, bracelets, and earrings.

Rule 4: Pair with a casual outfit. Big necklaces look great with basic tees but can make dressier garments look too splashy for work.
