There are accessories and then they are ACCESSORIES. In case you happen to have an Amazonian perception of jewels, Adia Kibur‘s necklace falls into the latter category. Kibur says super-size it, and in this case, I say bring it on! This resin and metal mash-up gives common links a major twist, as chunky, oversized links lead to even larger ones, for a statement-maker of creamy resin at your chest. And just think how dainty your neck and collarbone area will look against this mega-piece!
For way trendy pieces like this (read: something of such novelty shouldn’t be a lifetime investment), I like to keep the prices way low, too. Marbled resin makes this curb-chain piece look expensive and not plastic-y – which equals cheap-y. Nobody needs to know this is a Frugal Snob steal – they’ll be too focused on your confidence anyway.
Got a chunky cable-knit sweater that makes all of your jewelry look dinky? Here is your answer. Just keep all other jewels as paired down as possible, and spring for a pumped-up platform shoe to balance you out. In the case of this necklace, more – and bigger – is definitely merrier. On ShopBop for $65.
Pair with: If you’re not feeling the big heel, you can still harmonize with a lot of shoe. Chloé‘s rustic Tuscon boots in butter-camel leather are knee-high and have a silver-toned metal cuff for an element of surprise. On Net-a-Porter for $1,095.
