Marni SS09

Marni SS09

We all love a bit of neck candy, and as the sun continues to shine, what better way to update your look than with a bib necklace?

Dolce & Gabbana, Marni, Louis Vuitton and Andrew GN all showed the look on their SS09 catwalks, which just goes to show you how popular a trend it is for the upcoming months.

We loved the OTT statements made on the runway, with Marni opting for different coloured beads, Chanel going for candy coloured flowers and Gucci sampling blue shapes on their catwalk.

A bib necklace is a great way to liven up a dull outfit, and with all the tribal and jungle influences hitting the high-street this spring, it's time that we take a closer look at this trend.

So, with that in mind, here are the styles which are set to be big news in the upcoming months...

Big Jewels: The bigger the better this summer is the rule here, and the more colourful and outrageous a necklace is, the more stylish you will be!

Asymmetrical: Arty necklaces are set to be massive news this summer, so make like Burberry Prorsum and Christian Lacroix this season and bring out your arty side.

Baubles: Curly baubles were shown at Moschino this season and we absolutely loved their take on it, teaming it with a grey biker jacket and jeans.  Personally we're championing this look teamed with an oversized white shirt dress and gladiatorial sandals!
