7. The Long Chain:
These chains were made for layering. Or, if neck clutter isn't really your thing, the beauty of the long chain is that it can be as quietly simple or as booming and bulky as you want. Either way, this piece can create texture against a T, break up a sheath, add interest to a sweater or, should you choose to channel your inner Joan Jett and pile it on, be totally rock n' roll.

2. The Big Earring:
Some days are too hot for hair on your neck and some dresses are too damn glamorous for beachy waves. And some moods, tresses all tied up or hanging free, simply demand a little drama. For everyone from the bohemian babe to the pixie to the secret diva, a statement-making earring can be exactly the face framer you don't want to live without.

10. The Statement Necklace:
This piece could be an opportunity to incorporate fun colors and textures or a chance to recruit heavy hardware into your wardrobe. Ranging from big chain links to bejeweled to bib-like, a good investment for this statement-maker should be tame enough to wear to work, a rehearsal dinner or out for a casual drink. Great for dressing up a t-shirt or adding interest to a basic sheath, these chunkier necklaces can diversify your wardrobe without adding bulk -- well-- to your closet that is.
