It's okay to go big and bold with jewel toned stones or citrus colored enamel pieces. This necklace should be the focal point of your outfit, so kick it up a notch with vibrant colors that are appropriate for summer. For a chic casual look, pair a simple yellow sundress with a contrasting necklace in blue hues, such as turquoise. You'll command attention, yet look effortlessly fresh.

To update a dressier ensemble, rev up the style quotient of a long dark dress with a pretty pink and purple beaded necklace. Choose pieces that not only make an impact, but ones that also make you feel happy when you wear them. If you're opting for a LBD (little black dress), the options for incorporating a statement necklace are endless. You can go with a costume-y piece with oversize faux gems in canary or emerald colors (think Angelina Jolie or Victoria Beckham). Or, throw in a call of the wild, and sport a fun ethnic piece that adds interest. Natural materials and earthly colors can turn a simple dress into a style statement.

So, take advantage of this season's trend of large, oversize necklaces. You can find some great affordable options online that will help to take last season's favorites into this season's re-inventions. Experiment with bold necklaces that use different materials to achieve a look that is all your own.
