I am rediscovering Banana Republic as of late. Lots of great looks and quality for a reasonable price! I was in Soho yesterday and popped in and was absolutely floored by their jewelry. Aside from it being merchandised really well, it also had a creative twist to the common statement necklaces. Plus they had a good supply of minimalist styles which is more me. If you'll notice in most of my looks I'm always wearing a slim gold hoop in various sizes. I've been doing it for years because no matter what an understated hoop goes with any huge statement necklace! They're my go-to! BUT.....
I pulled together a few faves below. Check out #2- imagine how much use you'd get out of it! and #6 over a plain crewneck sweater or even sweatshirt would be amazing. With all these parties during the holidays, you can update your LBD or classic look with one of these necklaces below!
1/ Fabulous statement necklace in gold and silver, so it will match whatever else you're wearing, such as a silver stud earring
2/ Imagine this over a collarless blouse, or peaking under a menswear collared shirt! You can layer this with a long string of looped pearls too. Possibilities are endless
3/ Simple, simple- great when you're wearing layers like a blazer, or with a statement blouse
4/ This was the piece that made me stop and come to the jewelry section when I walked by. Gorgeous and Art Deco-inspired!
5/ Straight gold dangle- super modern and understated (is there a theme here?)
6/ Like I said above, this collar would go great dressed up or down. You will use this for years!
7/ These are just hot. They clip on the TOP of your ear. Just make sure you're wearing a simple stud on your lobe, or nothing at all
Here are pictures from the store on Broadway; so much fun- I wanted everything, and a reason (such as a million parties!) to wear every single one:
