Trend Watch: Back Necklaces

Blame it the girls: back necklaces are going to be big. Anne Hathaway’s done it. So has Jennifer Lawrence:

If the Oscars were any indication, we’ll be seeing more spine-draping styles in the seasons ahead! The hottest new trend in jewelry is a sexy way to highlight a backless top or dress, and can be worn by those with both classic or edgy aesthetics. Feeling bold? Go for ceramic baubles, art-deco inspired jewels, or chunky pieces. If your look tends to be a bit more demure, opt for a simple chain, lariat, or strand of pearls for a dainty look. Whatever style you choose, the jewelry is an ultra-feminine way to add interest to your look.


Love this simple multi-chain back necklace from The Cools – so dainty!

This Kenneth Jay Lane stunner wasn’t designed to be worn backwards, but because there isn’t a visible clasp, it’s the perfect candidate for a backwards flip! Via Net-a-Porter

A little unpractical? Maybe. But you must admit – they are pretty, and easier to wear than a body chain! I’m loving the extra spotlight these gems are shining on a typically covered but totally sensual body part. Hot! Bonus: the trend couldn’t be easier to try out DIY. You probably already own a few necklaces that could simply be flipped for new a sexy back! Be on the lookout for these pieces in the months to come – the look is going to be big!
