Forget Statement Accessories — Minimalist Necklaces Are Back In Vogue

These minimalist accessories are all about understated beauty.

For a decked-out neck, sometimes less is more; a flash of silver, a hint of shine, a delicate chain — necklaces designed not to turn heads, but to exude elegance and grace.

These almost-minimal accessories in question are definitely subtle, but they’re hardly lacking in charm. By way of an eye-catching motif or a modest diamond resting on the decolletage, they’ll match everything — from suits to dresses and T-shirts and jeans — unlike their brazen, statement counterparts that require way more outfit planning. Heck, you won’t even have to take them off when you hit the shower.

Above, the nine pieces we’re lusting after.
