Third Time’s a Charm: Serenity Necklace

I am obsessed with orange and blue for spring. Pantone named Tangerine Tango Color of the Year, and we are already seeing variations of this color in spring clothes, textiles, and accessories. Because they are opposite on the color wheel, orange and blue are complementary colors. Stella & Dot’s spring collection is right on trend, featuring the beautiful Campari NecklaceLa Coco Rope Necklace, and the Capri Earrings in Coral, and our Look Book features several orange and blue pairings, like this  one:

As much as I love the clothes in our spring Look Book, they are not exactly friendly for curvy women like me, so I decided to wardrobe one of my favorite necklaces – the Serenity Necklace – with clothes a plus-size girl can wear (y’all, I’m talkin’ real plus-size, not the kind in modeling where anything above a size 6 is considered plus.)

I started my virtual shopping spree at one of my favorite stores, Nordstrom, and styled the necklace three different ways: for a dressy night out, dressy casual (maybe a business lunch?), and weekend casual. It’s easy to see how one necklace can do triple duty, adding elegance to a simple dress and kicking the weekend jeans-and-a-t-shirt uniform up a notch. The blues and greens in the Serenity Necklace look great with the blueberry sash tie dress and anything navy, bright green, white, black, and of course, orange. I included a little orange in each outfit to pull in the tangerine color.In these sets, I kept the orange to accessories like shoes and handbags, a great way to update your wardrobe with this season’s colors.

I got a pair of↑these Kut from the Kloth jeans last weekend, and I cannot wait to wear them. They fit perfectly except for the 4 inches the woman in alterations has to chop off the bottom of each leg, and they are so soft, I may never take them off once I put them on! The bracelet and rings shown with the necklace are good basic pieces to have in your jewelry wardrobe because you can add them to almost any outfit to finish the look.
What do you think? Are you ready to add a splash of orange to your spring wardrobe? Do you like orange and blue together? Let me know in the comments!
