Trend alert!
Bib necklaces are a fun and classy jewelry trend to try out this spring and summer. Celebs are accessorizing their red carpet looks with these fashion-forward necklaces. So what exactly is a bib necklace? A bib necklace is a larger piece of jewelry, where a thick section of the necklace sits on the chest, mimicking a baby’s bib. These necklaces were common in 7th century Greek and Roman jewelry (so you know they’re stylish!), and have been used throughout the ages to accessorize evening gowns.

Here are some tips on how to wear a bib necklace.
       Bib necklaces are the perfect statement jewelry pieces. Allow them to be the main focus of your look by pairing them with solid colors.
       Bib necklaces look great worn overtop of your shirt. For instance: wear a button-up shirt with a bib necklace at the collar. Of course, the beauty of these necklaces is that they can be worn with a number of outfits (check out the celebs rockin’ their necklaces with dresses above!).
       Don’t pair your bib necklaces with too much additional jewelry. They should stand out by themselves!
