A Spring ’14 Trend to Try Now: The Reverse-Collar Necklace

While wearing some of next spring’s trends, like fancy Tevas and swishy fringed pieces, might be a bit premature, there is another style that you can try for the holidays: the reverse-collar necklace. From the oversize pearls that resembled headphones at Chanel to the giant rhinestones at Balenciaga, it’s a flattering take on the choker. By flipping it around and showing a bit of skin at the neck, the piece keeps a clean line that elongates rather than stunts the neck visually. For a less dramatic take on the necklace, try this version by Alexis Bittar. The sleek gold lines are simple enough to avoid overwhelming your outfit. It looks best with some clavicle so wear it with a loosely buttoned silk shirt to the office or paired with a strapless dress for a cocktail affair.

Alexis Bittar Hinged Infinity collar necklace, $195 at Shopbop.
