Welcome to the Style Suite with Kéla Walker, your source for fashion and style trends for power plays in the workplace. Every Tuesday and Thursday, she’ll share tips and suggestions to help maximize your style on a budget. Whether you’re the style devil in Prada or the apprentice with limited apparel, you’ll find something in the Style Suite to suit your needs.

Last week in the Style Suite, I talked about punching up your work wear with a bold lip. (Hopefully you took me up on my challenge.) This week we’re taking it up a notch and talking about statement necklaces. (Shop the look here.)

For some time now, ladies have been donning their bold neck wear. ‘Tis the season to keep it going. A statement necklace is a piece that gives extra flair and pizzaz to your look, adding just what the name implies. They dress up the dullest duds and punctuate any look. During the holidays, the neck adornment is a great way to dazzle and shine through the season and all of its scheduled events. Let the piece take center stage in your look to transition that day dress into night. It’s easier and more affordable than buying a completely new look. So go on, pop on a great necklace along with your bold lip, and make a style statement in more ways than one.
