Bibs Aren't Just For Children Anymore
Bib necklaces are getting a lot of wear recently. Eva Mendes showed up at the Golden Globes earlier this year with a stunning turquoise and diamond bib necklace, four tiers long! Even if celebrities weren't wearing these necklaces, they make a great statement piece of jewelry for anyone's jewelry box. They are exotic and elegant or bold and brassy, take your pick. If you've not tried a bib necklace before, you're in for a treat. Anyone can wear them and they come in all styles and sizes. It is definitely on the list of must-have accessories for 2009.
How to Wear a Bib Properly
A bib necklace is not like other necklaces. It is made to wear flat against the nape of the neck and typically, it works best against bare skin. Even though you can wear this style with a T-shirt as well as an evening gown, you want to make sure the cut of the neckline suitably frames the necklace for the best effect. If you want to be more casual, you can get the simplest T-shirt out there that lies flat against the neckline and then put the necklace on top. Just make sure it lies flat to get the look.
What Are Bibs Made Of?
Here's where you can definitely have some fun with your bib necklaces. You can get some costume jewelry ones with large beads in tiers. You can get some with large floral motifs. If you want to be more elegant, get some with gold, diamonds, or other precious stones. There really is not a single material that works the best with a bib, as long as it is tiered and lies somewhat flat against the skin, you can have a show piece made from shells, if that appeals to you.
