In my prooo-FESH-shunnal experience with low budget accessories, Forever 21 presents some of the best costume jewelry. Many of their pieces feel substantial and can be paired easily with expensive clothing and fit right in. In contrast, the problem I had with ON accessories in the past (thinking last summer) was that no matter what they were put next to, they felt and looked pretty cheap. Some of Old Navy’s latest pieces are a bit plastick-y. However, they must be working w/new factories or something because I was impressed w/some. Congrats, ON, you’ve come a long way in a year.
Gumball bead necklace – $18.50
Multi bead chain necklace – $12.50
It also comes in coral….
…and in pearl. If you missed J Crew’s dangling pearl necklace, you might rock this combo as a worthy alternative.
Two of them look good together.
Faux pearls – They have a clasp at the neck. They can be worn doubled, as shown, or as one long strand. One drawback to these is that it’s not easy to knot them in one loop. The thread is a bit too stiff. Can’t recall the price. Anywhere from $12.50 – $17.50 Don’t see them on the website yet.
OMG, I am doing the cabbage patch over here. I am a F21 loyalist, but love ON’s new accessories!
