The Modern Quartet necklace is a 4-in-1 necklace featuring brass elements and gorgeous gold and black chains creating a dynamic, layered look. Unique, oblong pendants hang at every length, perfectly accenting collarbones.

HN-1228-G-CLEANEDStyle Tip: Wear the Modern Quartet necklace with an arm stacked high with bracelets, a messy bun and a red lip for an effortlessly put-together look.

IN PRODUCTION NECKLACES

We love that when you purchase something from the sundance catalog, not only are you receiving a beautiful piece to enjoy for yourself, but you are also supporting American craftspeople and efforts to enhance and preserve the environment.

5 Ways to Wear A White Tee

theyalljateus

Pair a loose fitting, worn tee with baggy denim cuffed at the ankle and chic heels for a rough yet refined look!

The white T-Shirt is quite arguably one of the very best ways to show off layers of necklaces (aside from a seductive bare neck/chest combo!) However, the white T-Shirt can also get a little, for lack of a better word, boring. Enter: this post! We’ve scoured the web (and thought back to our own past outings) to show you how to wear your crisp whites, worn in favorites, and everything in between in fresh new ways!

So, scroll down and don’t forget to load up on necklaces to layer over your newfound fashion sense!

1-white-tee-shirt

Pair a basic yet luxe feeling top with sleek leather shorts and pile on the gold chains for the perfect balance of streamlined glamour. Gold accessories up the ante.

Go bold- Wear a bandeau top OVER your tee!

Go bold- Wear a bandeau top OVER your tee!

OK so that last look is a little out there, but hey! It’s summer yet we still have places to go that aren’t the pool or beach, so take that bikini with you. We think this looks calls for an extravagant choker. The jewelry must match your apparent bravado.

Want something dressier? Throw that basic shirt on with a high waisted, floor length skirt and your highest heels, put hands on hips and feel the drama like never before.

Need a summer suit for work that can easily transition to happy hour? Put an untucked gauzy tee under a cream-colored, wide leg suit with cool asymmetrical details and look fashion forward on the outside yet feel supremely comfortable on the inside. Pair with a sleek layered necklace and a decidedly messy updo.

All in all, with the right amount of confidence, your favorite white tee can become a fashionable staple in a whole new way. The clean lines and neutral color make it the easiest way to dress anything up or down, with the right accessories.

5 Jewelry Fashion Tips

Cecilia Gonzales Jewelry ModelCecilia Gonzales Jewelry Model

 

1. Use repetitive designs, textures, and colors to add to your overall look.
2. Only draw attention to one main focus point.
3. Thicker necklaces can be doubled or tripled for use as bracelets.
4. Develop a signature style, like multiple strands of pearls, a particular bright color, or lots of bangle bracelets.
5. Consider the width and depth of the neckline you are wearing when choosing a necklace. Turtleneck sweaters look nice with long, layered strands of beads, but a typical t-shirt neckline would look best with a necklace whose length falls right along the edge of the line.
