ever wondered how to wear a statement necklace?

a reader e-mailed me about a week ago asking for some suggestions about what to pair a great statement necklace with.

here's a few ideas:

statement necklaces are great with a cute dress and structured blazer
dress & blazer - Lauren Conrad for Kohl's
necklace - Forever 21

dress up a simple top with the necklace and a light sweater
top - H&M
sweater - T.J. Maxx

add some flair to a simple button up
shirt - JCPenney

throw the necklace on over a top with a high neckline for a classy look
top - T.J. Maxx

Add the necklace to dress up an everyday tank top and open-front sweater
tank top - Old Navy
sweater - T.J. Maxx

which version is your favorite?
