A statement necklace can transform a simple and inexpensive look into something special. Wearing a statement necklace can really dress up a look. But, it needs to be done correctly, or your look can be over done. One of our favorite fashionistas, Lauren Conrad, gives some great tips on how to wear a statement necklace. Lauren Conrad gives some great tips on how to wear statement necklaces on her blog. Here are a few of her quick tips:

– Make Your Own Necklace. If you have a bunch of old brooches lying around, pin them together onto a short chain to create your own statement necklace.
