I have a fashion confession to make; up until very recently I had no idea how to wear a bib necklace. You know, those gorgeous large glamorous necklaces that seem to have taken over Pinterest? Over the last few months I have seen more and more websites showcasing quite affordable – and gorgeous – necklaces for sale that are truly remarkable. The problem for me was how I could actually wear these necklaces on an everyday basis without looking over the top.
So I set out to investigate how I could wear these necklaces on an everyday basis, which is really what RefinedSide is all about… Glamour, elegance and refined life converted to the every day.
Here are three ways you can wear the bib necklace everyday:
Level 1: Underneath It All
Definitely the easiest way to wear the bib necklace, putting it on under a shirt peeking out through the collar allows you to wear a very bright or colourful necklace in a muted way that would even be appropriate for a more conservative setting. I took this inspiration and thought about how it would look if we looked at a muted neutral colour palette and think it can even look classic while playing homage to this fun and sparkly trend.
Level 2: Prepster Glam
When you think of wearing a sweater over a collared shirt, you might immediately think preppy. For others, it might just be a pretty normal outfit… But when you throw in the bib necklace, you’re not thinking about preppy anymore as your eyes immediately go to the jewels around your neck. I took this inspiration and thought of how good it would look on a casual Friday at work with dark denim and a conservative top with a brightly coloured necklace for contrast.
Level 3: Plain Jane Dress Up
If you’re feeling bold and ready to move on to level 3, the contrast between a plain t-shirt with a bib necklace is the way to go. Elevating the t-shirt from casual weekend attire to being the most put together refined casual outfit you can imagine. I took this inspiration and loved the idea of having a matching coloured t-shirt and necklace for a coordinated look that still managed to look easygoing and sophisticated at the same time.
