Shopping Tips: Necklaces

For those of you who are not crazy shopaholics like me, shopping can be a daunting task.  I pretty much have a photographic memory of all the clothes I own so I can easily picture what my outfits would look like in my head.  Yes, I am borderline crazy...  crazy for shopping!

Here are my tips when it comes to shopping for jewelry, specifically necklaces:


1.  Have a plan.  It's easy to get overwhelmed when you are not used to buying jewelry.  There are so many options to choose from.  Have an idea in your head of what you're looking to find.  Are you looking for a certain color?  Are you shopping for a particular outfit or occasion?

2.  Stay focused.  Stores like Forever 21 have so many great accessories and at such low prices that it's easy to get distracted and overwhelmed.  Remain focused at the task at hand or you may find yourself flustered and leaving empty handed (I've learned this the hard way).  And don't let those crazy teenagers push you around!

3.  Don't be afraid.  Go outside your comfort zone.  This is a great opportunity for you to try out that new color or new trend without committing to something that might break your wallet or take over your whole outfit.

Don't have an idea of where to start?  Think about what colors dominate your closet.  Is it mostly darks?  Brights?  All pink (I wish)?  Get yourself a necklace that easily goes with the majority of your clothing.  If you have a lot of darks or neutrals, consider a brightly colored piece.   You want your necklace to stand out against your clothing, so go for contrasts in color.

Dot Pullover Sweater + Pink Cascade Chains

If you have an array of colors in your wardrobe but just want one great new piece of jewelry, try a black or white statement necklace.  Black and white are classic colors that won't ever go out of style.  You can easily wear them with almost anything you own and all year round. 

Sweets Boutique Top + White Beaded Bib Necklace
Silk Pintuck Blouse + Blu Bijou Beaded Necklace

So go on fashionistas and shop away!  What is your best plan of attack when it comes to buying jewelry?  And just remember... shopping is fun!

Aww this is such a great tip. Shopping is really fun but I find myself getting distracted of what I am really looking for. It makes shopping faster for me if I am focused and have a plan. Thanks for sharing. Love your photo.

Great tips, Yi-chia! I'm definitely one of those who gets really overwhelmed so I tend to do a lot of shopping online, but these are really good guidelines. Hope you're having a great week!

Tashia said...

Your comment about being pushed around by teenagers made me giggle. The only transit accessible F21 in Boston (newburry st.) is always full of little college girls and I get so annoyed by them! Those are some great pieces!

Rakhshanda said...

Great tips!! You look great in the pic <3

Emma Lee said...

This post was so helpful! I never thought of a white necklace and I think it's exactly what my wardrobe is missing.

Thanks Yi-Chia!

P.S. I love the picture, but maybe you have enough necklaces for now?

alongobucco said...

Necklaces are surprisingly hard to shop for, so these are great tips! I love that first picture of you will your collection piled on–so cute haha. And you're totally right about being pushed around by teenagers in Forever 21. I get so frustrated!

Emma Lee said...

Also, Yi-Chia what kind of necklace would you recommend if most of your shirts have some sort of embellishment near/around the neck?

Always Maylee said...

I would go with a longer necklace. Either a very simple one or something like the first pink one (above), where it's minimal at the top but has more going on towards the bottom either with extra chains or just a pendant!

Rose Mode said...

That love that tone of blue, pastel is going to be the trend during spring and summer 2013

Allie said...

I love your tips girly! I always have a plan when shopping for jewelry too! And your first picture - adorable! xx, Allie

great tips!! i don't have much jewelry, but i like to shop for colorless pieces... like gold, clear jewels, or even silver... i feel like some colored pieces can look cheap at times if not chosen carefully...

Milex said...

I have no words, I love it too much!

Amy Shaughnessy said...

Great tips girl! My problem is that I can't remember what jewelry I already have so when I get home, I have a lot of the same pieces.

even though I love to shop I still get a bit overwhelmed because i have really bad memory and sometimes I forget what I have in my closet :/

so now I've been trying to go with a plan in mind and sometimes i take pics of the outfit i want to style so I can take a look in the store lol.

Haha...I know what you mean about going in stores like Forever 21 and being overwhelmed by the kiddies and the options! I am a big fan of the statement necklace. I have several in black, gold, silver, and one I bought recently in white. Now I just need to add some color...thinking about a burgundy one for fall! Now following your blog :)

Laura said...

Great tips, Yi-chia! I agree that it can be so easy to load up at places like F21 that have so much stuff for cheap prices, so you really have to have a plan ahead of time! Even if something is only $5, it's a waste of $5 if you end up buying it and never wearing it!

That top picture with you and all your necklaces makes me so happy!!! F21 is such an overwhelming store, you are so right...and those teenagers! Who do they think they are;)

Katie Q. said...

Yikes, the accessories area at F21 is terrifying! There's so...much..stuff..

I like the inspiration photos, visuals always seem to help more when it comes to talking about colors than just plain old text does. The best shopping tip I can think of is to only buy accessories that you really love, otherwise it's so easy to wind up with a ton of cheap stuff that you don't really care for.

And wowza, you've got a great collection yourself!

smk053078 said...

Great shopping tips! I'm so bad at shopping for jewelry. I always forget about it and just end up wearing the same few necklaces over and over again until I see something I can't live without.

It sounds like I'm being cheesy, but I promise I am being sincere. I have never been much of a jewelry gal (I never wear my wedding band or engagement ring for example, and I almost always forget to wear earrings). So this was really helpful. I often get overwhelmed, so your tips will help. Have you ever been in a Charming Charlie's? It's instant panic attack for me!

Nerdy Asian said...

Great tips you have there! I always have in mind what I'm looking for, or sometimes if I know there's a huge sale somewhere, I just buy items I think will last me more than one season. Though most of my jewellery sometimes gets hidden away in a box, and I only end up wearing it once or twice!

You're absolutely right that shopping for necklaces (and everything) can be daunting! I am also picky (who isnt?) and don't like to shop online. I always fail at picking jewelry online :(. Love your tips about picking contrasting color necklace or black/white one for versatility! I have a black one I wear with everything!

Julia said...

This is a great post. I stopped buying jewelry for a while and am just starting to get back into it. Recently I had an idea of what I wanted, walked into Target, saw one perfect necklace hanging in the clearance section and it just made my day!

I’m also the same…crazy for shopping. I always wait for my salary to get some vogue jewelry. As you said, mostly I go with white and black jewelry because it won’t get outdated and I can wear almost for all type of clothes.
