I love to give the basic looks in my closet a hint of flair and one of the easiest ways to do that is with a statement accessory – a simple outfit can be completely transformed with the perfect pair of shoes or jewelry. From the farmers market to a formal event, there are so many different ways to wear necklaces and if you do it right, this small detail will take your look to the next level with little effort. It only takes one item (that you most likely already have in your wardrobe!). See the photo gallery below for inspiration on how to wear necklaces from some of the hottest celebrities in Hollywood.
Celeb Inspiration: Ways to Wear Necklaces
- Kim Kardashian: long and layered is a no-brainer
- Gabrielle Union: not too flashy but is still outside the box
- Rihanna: the choker that has been a huge trend this past year
- Heidi Klum: a bold piece that looks like a part of your dress
- Bethenny: classic and easy to wear every day
Which of these celeb’s style works best for you?

As much as I enjoy a great print, I have found myself leaning towards solid colors because it gives me more freedom to really have fun with accessories (LOVE), like with holiday statement necklaces. It is just fabulous when your shoes, scarves or jewelry become the unexpected focal point of your overall look.
Choosing a basic black, bold red or fresh white dress is the perfect backdrop to show off any stunning holiday statement necklaces you have in your jewelry wardrobe, which is exactly what actress Ashley Tisdale did here. It’s simple and pretty and could be a good option for New Year’s Eve.
