shonshon8’s picks: Necklace Shirts

The necklace shirt, a big trend this season, is a 2-in-1 godsend for those who need to throw on their outfit, run out the door and still look fly. While I can appreciate some trends, I always look for details that make an item stand out from the rest. To me, these tops by Cha Cha Vente have that extra flava I’m looking for!

The first top is a tribute to Chanel-style, with long, dangling costume-jewelry pearls and black bow details. I chose to channel Coco’s spirit by completing the look with a hat, some gloves, pin-striped trousers and a glass of wine, of course…

EEK! by Eugenia Kim hat, Cha Cha Vente top, GAP sweater, lux pinstripe pants, IZOD gloves, Necessary Objects handbag.


The second top is devilishly classy with its thick, silver chain nestled within the folds of soft pleats that drape from the collar. To crank up the volume, I threw in my bright new Harajuku Lovers bubble tote, a bold, red houndstooth cardigan and a pair of black patent leather boots.

Cha Cha Vente top, H&M cardigan, sunglasses from shop in NC, H&M ring, Puma watch, Hydraulic jeans, Navid O Nadia patent leather boots.

Here is a close-up of this shirt so you can see the pleating detail.

P.S. I had the imperfect white background for this photo shoot; the inside of my white IKEA wardrobe, a recent hand-me-down from a friend. I thought I’d squeeze in a photo shoot before stuffing it with my clothes! For this fashion experiment, we ventured “outside of the box” by working “within the box.”
