Bibs Aren’t Just for Babies Anymore
The hottest trend in Jewelry right now has been spotted all over the red carpet this past year. The fabulous trend that started on the runway is now trickling into your local mall and department stores. This trend is bib necklaces! They are characterized by the way you tie them around your neck and also by how they lay and have the shape like a bib. But these bibs certainly are not for babies! Bib necklaces would fall under the category of bold jewelry. They make a huge statement when you wear them and tend to be the main focus of an outfit. So, when you wear a bib necklace the same rules of wearing bold jewelry applies. Keep the outfit simple when it comes to colors and patterns in order to really allow the bib necklace to stand out. Also remember to keep your other jewelry simple as well. Opt for studs instead of chandelier earrings, skip the bracelets and perhaps wear an understated ring that compliments the bib necklace. Bib necklaces are excellent for school dances, proms, cocktail parties, holiday parties and more!
Some bib necklaces can be made of other materials like felt or yarn. There are some lovely crocheted bib necklaces that give an entirely different look than the more common jeweled versions. Personally, for special occasions I prefer jeweled bib necklaces. The bib necklaces off the runways of fashion’s hottest designers were either real jewels or Swarovski crystals. Either way, neither option would be viable for the everyday woman. Luckily, there are so many other look a like options available. Cubic Zirconia jewelry in particular offers affordable alternatives to expensive jewels. You can find many cz jewelry bib necklaces that look just as beautiful and stunning as the real thing! With the money you save, you can buy even more bib necklaces!
Celebrities everywhere are embracing the trend too. Amy Adams, at a recent awards ceremony wore a brilliant and large bib necklace that complimented her crimson gown and red hair. She accessorized well choosing to wear small studs instead of any sort of dangly earrings. Bib necklaces are not hard to wear as long as you understand how to not over accessorize. I reserve bib necklaces for more formal occasions, but I think they can be worn at the office as well. Pair a pencil skirt, heels, and a nice white blouse with a statement bib necklace and you are good to go. Of course this look certainly depends on your office and how formal it is—but don’t be afraid to try it out. Bib necklaces are a trend that may not be in style for very long, so wear it while it’s hot!
