Zara Statement Necklaces

As you may know (from previous blog posts) Zara is one of my favourite high street stores, they have fantastic pieces at affordable prices. Their shoes and statement necklaces are so popular, I'm regularly visiting my local store to buy either a new pair of shoes or a bold necklace to add to my collection. That's when I thought why not showcase the gems that have helped me to decide some of the recent outfits featured on my blog. 

Here's part of  the start of my growing collection of Zara statement necklaces. This is probably 3 of the most popular statement necklaces that Zara have brought out within the last year. The necklaces are definitely an investment, regularly selling out, it's no wonder people are taking to online bidding sites like eBay to sell the gems for up to double the price. Yes that's right, I recently went on one site and saw one of my necklaces being offered for sale for £48!! But then that tends to be the case with any item from Zara that goes out of stock. 

I've never been a big fan of pearls, so when I saw this online I wasn't at all tempted to buy it, though there was no denying how well the combination of colours worked together. It wasn't until I spotted it in my local store that I realised just how beautiful the necklace was, definitely worth purchasing... it's just so pretty and with my recent love of green and blue outfits, I knew it would add an amazing finishing touch. 

The necklace  is very bold and very big, so I like to make it the centre of attention on my outfit. I think it can be worn casually during the day or dressed up at night; I recently wore it with a white chiffon t-shirt, green trousers and blue heels to work. I think it would look lovely with a lot of colours, especially a bold colour like orange as well as something subtle like cream or white.

The necklace has matching earrings which also look amazing, but wearing them together especially during the day is way too much for me and maybe a little too Pat Butcher. I think it's best to wear one piece at a time, so as I'm more of a necklace lover I went for the necklace as oppose to the earrings (check the earrings out here on the Zara website).

This necklace is the oldest of my collection and quite possibly my favourite (if I was forced to pick). It goes with everything, yes everything. It doesn't matter if you prefer silver or gold this necklace includes both, so it works for everyone. It can be worn dressed up or casually, adding sparkle to your otherwise basic t-shirt and jeans combo.

As it goes with so many different outfits, I've featured this necklace on my blog quite a few times, here's just a few posts:

And last but not least is this beauty, with it's vintage-like look it's definitely a collector piece, one I'll never part with. When I saw this necklace online I knew that I had to get it or I'd definitely regret it. With some Zara jewellery once it's gone it's gone and it's not coming back. So yes, I clicked buy and patiently waited for the beauty to be delivered to my house.

As the necklace is full of bling I think its better suited to a night out, whether it's dinner with the Mr or a night out with the girls. Though, I must admit I wore it once during the day with an otherwise casual outfit and it looked great, but throughout the day I had people staring at me, especially children. I'd suggest if you want to wear it casually it would look great with a 1950s inspired outfit; a midi length full skirt, preferably in a pastel colour, teamed with a pretty lace top.

I believe that this necklace is still in stock, so if you like it... don't hesitate, get it now (here).
