In recent times, statement accessories have really pushed to the forefront of the fashion world. But it must be a challenge to hold your own against today’s Tillie’s, Pat Butcher inspired Dolce & Gabanna food piece earrings, and all other modern day accessories that seem to ‘maketh’ or ‘breaketh’ the outfit.
Whether they were on ears in the form of crystal drop earrings dangling from flowered studs at Prada; in hands at Proenza Schouler in the form of handheld bags and ladylike gloves, or on heads at Jil Sander, in an unusual marriage between the casual beanie and a more formal blusher veil; spring summer 2012 accessories demanded their own rightfully deserving place on the catwalk.
And being the accessory aficionados we are here at My Fashion Life, if there’s a certain accessory lurking on our WANT-IT-NOW radar; we just have to shout about it from the rooftops.
This week we’re gushing like a child left at its own will in a candy shop – candy, how very season-appropriate! –except, we’ve traded all the swirly lollipops and strawberry dib-dabs for a lust-worthy Anton Heunis double chain drop necklace. A sweet sight for the eyes, this statement necklace is the perfect trans-seasonal piece for your summer wardrobe and one you won’t regret investing in.
With its ability to instantly upgrade any look into spring summer 2012 mode, thanks to the multicoloured crystal embellishment it sports; the double chain drop necklace is equally apt for day, and after hours play. The brass and gunmetal double chain necklace adds a tough-luxe feel, making it perfect to pair with luxe jersey basics for a serious air of off-duty glamour, or with a coordinating jacket, shift dress and killer heels for a shot of fashion in the boardroom.
