Statement necklaces have long held their own in the world of fashion. Making a big splash on the catwalk for SS09, statement neckwear has stayed the course, transitioning across seasons and proving to be the perfect way to bring an old outfit bang up to date. This Autumn/Winter statement necklaces are back with a vengeance and all our high street favourites are churning them out by the bucketload. With something for every budget, part with the cash for one of these babies and you won’t be sorry. Simply throw one on as you’re running out the door and you’re sure to transform outfit after outfit, brightening up everything from office wear to your Saturday night look.

As well as the 10 I’ve chosen to show you, there are statement necklaces on offer across the board at everywhere from New Look to ASOS, H&M and more. Choose a simple silver or gold finish for maximum versatility. You could even go for an on-trend Rose Gold piece to earn extra style points this season. A plainer necklace will go with any outfit and be sure to cross seasons for years to come, bringing you in loads of compliments as it goes!

For a slightly braver choice, go for colour. Get yourself over the Zara website and take a gander at their range of bright, detailed choices currently on offer. With everything from blue to orange and even neon, you can choose what kind of statement you want to make. With prices starting from £17.99, Zara isn’t the cheapest option but they truly have the best range for colour and necklaces are heavy with secure beads and thick chains, ensuring you get the most wear possible from your purchase.

Wear your necklace with dresses, cardigans, tshirts and vests to glam up budget basics in an instant!
