Necklace Domination… Under $50

Necklaces can have truly transformative powers. They can take a more basic style and elevate it to magical, simply by just laying there. Consider what works best for you, for your lifestyle, your body type and  have fun with it. It’s so easy now to find extraordinary pieces under $50 — like all of the ones below — to make your jeans and a blouse, a t-shirt dress or a basic sheath total compliment inducers! TAGG Tip: just be aware how it lays across your chest. If you’re bustier, consider a shorter length so it doesn’t add more volume  — or sink into cleavage!)

bib: royal floral || gold peter pan collar (under $7!) || chain and jewel necklace (deal!) || cobalt baubles (take $10 off for first purchase!)

chainknotted chain link ||  tortoise shell (majorly obsessed!) ||   black and gold || double chain gold links ||

bold:  luxe stone (2 colors) ||  stone bib mesh ||  pink multi-strand necklace  (sale: now under $20!)||  pink, grey + yellow “willemstad”

    Cuteness!! You are definitely right about necklaces & being busty. Some just don’t look as cute!

      KM: while I can’t relate, I have quite a few friends who can… and going a bit shorter has definitely made a difference…. or simple stack the arm with bangles and avoid the issue.

        I am busty, too, and I love necklaces. I always end up with them banging around my chest as I walk and it looks ridiculous… Going short has made ALL the difference, though I still have some love for my longer necklaces.

    Do you think the big pieces still work on little frames/petite bodies? Also- would you wear them under a button down shirt???

      I think so, though proportion is key. I am 5’3 and wear bold necklaces. Feel free to tweet a pic for another opinion! 🙂

      Don’t be afraid, I have two necklaces like the last one in the top row (different colors) and I’m 5’1″ and get loads of compliments at work from them. Go bold!

    You know I’m loving this post – really digging the second one in from the left on the bottom row, but when I click on the link it takes me to a different product? Can you send me the info for it?
