Wendy made quite the statement on today's show in a simple little black dress by Judith & Charles and a show-stopping silver multi-link necklace ($90, richrocksnyc.com). Since there is nothing like a little glitter to totally transform a look, here are a few "statement piece" necklaces that will make you look effortlessly glamorous. From the top: This beaded charm necklace is the most expensive on our list. The intricate details and youthful shapes make it the ultimate addition to any jewelry collection ($99.99, usa.frenchconnection.com).
If you want something a little less extravagant, maybe this beaded bib necklace is more your style, the deep-blue cascading beads and gold chain make it easy to transition from day to night ($54, lorisshoes.com). Our favorite is this sparkling sage crushed-stone bib necklace. The gold silk ribbon adds a whimsical touch while the crushed stones make it a truly unique work of art ($78, nordstrom.com). If you want to look exactly like Wendy, this circle links necklace is almost identical to the talk-show fashionista's, and it's cheaper ($57, modekungen.se).
Wondering how to fit big, bold statement jewelry into your wardrobe? Two things you should keep in mind: (1) Keep everything else simple. (2) Only wear one statement piece at a time. If you don't want to spend money buying new jewelry, take necklaces you already have and layer them for a dramatic effect. Now all you've got to do is pull a cute LBD out of your closet and sashay away.
