A statement necklace is the perfect top coat for any outfit. If you’re a minimalism-seeker, we suspect your sartorial palette will favour blush pink, grey, nude and black, and with such a ‘cleansed’ wardrobe, we don’t expect an accessory jamboree, either.
That’s why we love it when we find that perfect ‘bridge accessory’ that allows an outfit to be uplifted without trying too hard. A simple pull-over, skinny jeans, heels and a statement necklace are the go-to pieces for casual glamour – a simple day look enhanced with a smattering of glitz.
Enter three, hot-to-snap statement necklaces from French accessory brand, Shourouk, brainchild of designer Shourouk Rhaiem who launched her eponymous company in 2007. Citing Jacques demy films and the art and legacy of Frida Kahlo as design inspiration, Rhaiem creates edgy, ornate accessories and counts Sarah Jessica Parker, Blake Lively and even the First Lady as fans!
We love the assortment of statement Shourouk necklaces at Matches; the Dynasty, Daisy Duke and Electro Storm necklaces would suit perfectly with a pared-down spring wardrobe by day, and spot on for taking your look from work desk to after party.
