In many places across the nation, the heat index has risen as temperatures have heated up in these late days of summer. So what’s a girl to do when she still wants to look fashionable but not be weighed down with heavy jewelry during a heat wave? Throw on a lightweight pendant necklace of course.
Fashionistas from the East Coast to the West Coast and everywhere in between have been spotted out and about in cool layered looks utilizing the basics of summer fashion – tank tops. From Lauren Conrad to Ashley Olsen to Lindsey Lohan to Kelly Ripa, these ladies who set the style standard are reverting to basic gauzy thin tank tops paired with shorts, Capri khakis, skinny jeans and bubble skirts. And their accessory of choice – a long pendant necklace.
Pendant necklaces are an easy go-to when you’re running out the door. They help to complete the outfit and pull your look together. Whether it’s charms, polished stones, lockets or personalized pendants, these necklaces do a great job of looking effortlessly chic and stylish. The key to wearing the look is to start with necklaces that are longer than the neckline of the tank top. After that, feel free to mix and match by adding necklaces of varying length. This will help you to create a unique look that reflects your personality.
Layering is big this season, whether it’s thin tank tops or necklaces. Throw on a couple of both, add a great pair of skinny white jeans, some gladiator sandals and a messenger bag and you’ll be ready for the farmer’s market, a vacation get-a-way or a stroll on the boardwalk. Long pendant necklaces are versatile enough to go with many selections in your closet, and best of all, they’ll still be a style “Do” come fall.
