Ask Belle: Six Chic Necklaces, Under-$50
Jun 22, 2015
My family gave me a lot of department store gift cards for graduation presents. I bought a couple of suits and dresses using a guide from one of your old posts, but accessories are kind of a mystery to me. I really like wearing necklaces, but I can’t bring myself to spend more than $50 for one. Kate Spade’s stuff is really cute but I just can’t.
Can you recommend some inexpensive necklaces that don’t look cheap?
Thank you, Becca
I’m glad you found some helpful advice in the CHS archives. Building a professional wardrobe from scratch is no easy feat.
Necklaces are a great way to bring color or texture to a basic piece of clothing. My favorite necklace comes from Stella & Dot, and it’s a bit more than $50. But I wear it at least twice a week, and my last one stayed in good shape for over two years before I replaced it. So it may be worth the extra.
However, if you’re sold on your $50 price limit, here are a few necklaces that I loved in different styles.
