Save Steal Splurge: The Monogram Necklace

To some, prep never goes out of style. But for others, boat shoes and Lilly Pulitzer are just a little too much for every day. One prep staple, the monogram necklace, is getting a major update €” it’s going big. Usually small and dainty, these necklaces go the route of the boyfriend watch and get the super-size treatment. These big baubles offer up two trends at once: the statement necklace and the monogram. These classic script options run the gamut: a traditional three-letter option, a more modern single letter and an all-out glam option from Baublebar that features real diamonds.

Who said preps are all about navy blues and neutrals? These necklaces show going bold is always in style.

Save: Giani Bernini 24k Gold Over Sterling Silver Necklace ($25)

Steal: Argento Vivo Personalized Three-Letter Monogram Necklace ($148)

Splurge: Baublebar Diamond Script Monogram Necklace ($1,580)

Show Some Skin with the Best Cold Shoulder Tops Under $100

Donna Karan famously stated that shoulders were her favorite part of the body. Why? Because according to her they never wrinkled and never got fat. That might explain why she’s a big fan of the cold shoulder — no, not that cold shoulder; she’s actually quite talkative — and why she’s become known for the cutout shoulder dress.

Other designers have honed in on the shoulder, too, giving us gowns, sweaters and tops with the same detail. It’s a sexy and subtle way to add some interest to an outfit, whether you choose something polished and sleek or go full-on boho with the look. Either way, don’t be afraid to flash a little skin this season.
