The chunky bead necklace is a mainstay of the fashion world. From Roman women to Flapper Girls to Angelina Jolie, this is a trend that transcends time and place!
The great thing about a string of beads is that it’s incredibly versatile. Whether you choose something big and bold in primary colours, a more muted pastel look or go all out with metallic bling, this is a look you can really make your own.
Below we’ve put together three very different outfits, all of which we think would be topped off perfectly with a string of chunky beads like the glorious Fluorite Nugget Necklace pictured above.
Look one: Winter Riviera
More delicate pendants can sometimes get overlooked when they’re worn with knitwear. Avoid this problem by pairing your sweaters with a string of chunky beads. In this look, a statement string of beads would help to balance out the bold skirt, but the neutral sweater would ensure the beads still played a starring role.
Look two: Art Student
Then again, who says big beads need to be worn against a plain background?! One of the reasons we love this kind of necklace is that they can add a bit of quirkiness to just about any outfit. Why not pair a chunky bead necklace with a print blouse? Colour matching optional!
Look three: Glam LBD
Whack up the glam factor by pairing your chunky beads with a slinky black LBD. This is a surefire way to add personality to your look whilst still keeping things suave and sophisticated.
