Stealing styling tips from our favorite lookbooks and beyond.
This jewelry idea is for the girl who doesn’t need an of-the-moment off-the-runway piece to stand out. She’s subtle in all the best ways possible and is famous for wearing something in that particular way that makes you question, “Why didn’t I think of that?” Jennifer Lawrence has stepped out in long diamond necklaces cascading down the back of her Dior gowns on award show red carpets. Nicole Kidman famously wore a pendant flipped to the back in her Chanel No. 5 ads, Audrey Hepburn’s Holly Golightly wore her pearl choker with the main details at the nape of her neck. Last night, Cara Delevingne wore her De Grisogono jewels tossed over her shoulder, taking the risk that the necklace wouldn’t be photographed from the front, but inviting whispers of “we hate to see you leave, Cara, but we love to watch you walk away.” We recently saw new fine jewelry designer Ilana Ariel’s lookbook featuring delicate chain necklaces layered and worn backwards—thereby making the look viable for the every woman—no red carpet required. It certainly begs the question, ‘Why just wear one, when you can wear three?’.
