I do love a statement necklace and this one is perfect for making a plain striped top more interesting. Long drapey necklaces are also a must-have accessory for wearing over high-necked tops if you’re well endowed. They elongate the upper body in the same way a V-neck top does so you avoid that “boxy” look.
I bought this multi chain necklace by 2nd Day by Day Birger et Mikkelsen on eBay. It has all the colours of my outfit in – white, navy and grey – and adds interest to what’s otherwise a fairly plain top and trousers combination. I like the mix of stripes and chains in the same colour palette, it makes a change from my usual bold, contrasting necklaces. My Damsel in a Dress coat was also an eBay bargain.
