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!

1) Radiant Orchid
The Pantone Color Institute announced that the color of the year is “Radiant Orchid.” What a perfect color for spring, a season which promises a sense of refreshment and renewal. Wondering how to accessorize with this new hue? Dress up a plain jeans-and-tee look with a pair of purple earrings. Pair that little black dress you’ve been meaning to wear with a purple gemstone cocktail ring or purple bangles. The options are endless!

2) Pastels & Brights
A common trend that was seen on the runway for spring 2014 was mixing pastels with brighter colors. For instance, why not wear a bright blue top with a light blue statement necklace. Try pairing a bright red dress with some light pink jewelry. This is a fun way to incorporate your favorite colors into your look without overdoing it.

We’ve got color contrasts in each of these fun spring collections.

3) Florals
Let’s be serious. Who doesn’t love flowers, right? They smell nice, they’re pretty to look at, and this spring season, they’re fun to wear! Floral statement necklaces, simple flower stud earrings, floral bracelets and cuffs, and watches with florally designed faces are just a few of the pieces that are popular for spring 2014.

Our Zoccai Designer line has a lot of flirty florals to flock to.

4) Cuffs
Ear cuffs, hand cuffs (not the kind you’re thinking!), and ring cuffs are all the rage this spring season. Celebs such as Jennifer Lawrence can be seen rocking ear cuffs on the red carpet, while the ultimate fashionista, Sex and the City gal, Sarah Jessica Parker, has been spotted wearing several glitzy hand cuffs. Have fun experimenting with this new trend.
