My philosophy when it comes to accessories, specifically jewelry, is “the chunkier and more attention-grabbing, the better!”
I tend to rely on the same key pieces that I know work for me: bangles, statement cocktail rings, and oversized stud earrings. But the one accessory that I’m never caught without is a L-O-N-G pendant necklace. I love large, unique pendants, charms, and talismans on superlong chains. My three go-to pieces are a lucite strawberry with gold studs on a long gold chain (that I actually got at Forever 21 for 5 bucks), a vintage gold leaf pendant on a superlong chain that I got at the French Market in my hometown of New Orleans and I’ve had for years (which is the piece I inevitable put on when I don’t know what I want to wear), and the Odyssey necklace from Kate Bosworth’s JewelMint website (which I actually modified to have a longer chain because the piece was too short for my tastes but too incredible to pass up).
