Dressing Up In Bibs

Bib necklace by Phillip Lim featured in the September issue of Lucky Magazine

I’m flipping through the latest issue of Lucky Magazine and can’t stop drooling over the jeweled bib necklace layout. What grabs me is that even the most plain t-shirt or sweater can be glammed up with these necklaces.

How simple and brilliant.

Equally appealing to those of you not wanting to take the fashion risk and buy a top already bedazzled, these bold accessories are your way to test the waters. If co-workers start looking at you cockeyed, then you just slip off to the bathroom, take it off and it’s like it never happened.

But my guess is that you’re going to love playing around and pairing all those Plain Jane pieces tucked away in the corners of your closet.

While Lucky has lots of options, I found these two great, affordable shops on Etsy that sell the bibs but put a really feminine – and handmade – spin on them.
