Ladies, we all know the right accessory can transform an outfit. Adding a statement necklace to your ensemble is an easy way to be on trend without spending a lot. It’s that easy to go from Plain Jane to fabulous fashionista.
Neon has been the hottest trend this summer. A sea of necklaces have surfaced with a fierce juxtaposition of details: neon combined with sparkling jewels and metal detailing. The Regalia Necklace from Anthropologie boasts a $498 price tag. That’s a hefty price for anyone to pay, let alone a college co-ed.
One of the “it” pieces this season has been the J.Crew Bubble Necklace. It took the fashion blogosphere by storm and can be found on many a Pinterest board. The original piece sells for $150. While it’s an utterly fantastic necklace, forking over an entire month’s grocery budget may not be the best financial decision. After all, a girl needs to eat.
Finding a necklace with comparable charm and style as a higher-end version can sometimes be a challenge but don’t get too discouraged. There are plenty of wallet-friendly options that mirror the designer looks you love. You just have to know where to look.
Forever 21 and Bauble Bar are among the best places to shop for affordable, statement necklaces. Target is another great option. You’d also be surprised by the deals you can find on eBay. Still lusting after the J.Crew Bubble Necklace? A kaleidoscope of color options is available on eBay for under $20!
Whether you desire a piece echoing ladylike simplicity or funky originality, here we’ve hand-picked several options that are sure to fit your taste and budget.
