Trend to try: bangles as necklace

Yes Dries van Noten did it first in in 2008 and it was an instant hit with style bloggers all round the world. In one of those “Oh Why Didn’t I think of THAT” moments, this seem like an easy way out to DIY a statement necklace that is 1) eye-catching 2) super too simple. The piling-on-bangles-as-necklace thing just re-surfaced this New York Fashion Week at relatively new designer Chadwick Bell‘s show two days ago. He (or his show stylist) mastered the technique pretty well, the look is not that messy or awkward. It also shows that you can make a really blah outfit look good with a bold, chunky necklace. I’m just wondering how tiring it must be to have those weight around the neck.
