I'm not going to dedicate this last post of the year to sparkling New Year's Eve outfits and accessories. Instead, I'll write about a statement accessory I've received as a gift during last festivities, which will be a unique accessory for me to start 2020 in style. The necklaces I received were bought in USA and are in pink, citrine and crystal-clear + antiqued brass. This fashion accessory is also synonymous with the famous Vogue fashion editor, Anna Wintour, from whom they are called. When you're honing your style, looking to style icons like Anna Wintour is an obvious choice. The famous fashion icon knows that if you take one thing out of your head, like what to wear each day, you free yourself up for all the other interesting things that need to get done, so busy people have their own version of a uniform, personal to them, their lifestyle and personality: Wintour wears mules in Summer, boots in Winter, a printed dress, large, dark sunglasses and her very famous stone necklaces. And it might sound crazy, but that signature piece goes well with everything she wears, because she has made it part of her signature look.
Anna is rarely seen without these necklaces, so we expect to see these beautiful strands, whenever she steps out. She has her formula for looking chic, stylish and classic, and has found her bliss pieces to wear at work, watching tennis matches with HRH Queen Elisabeth II, or hosting a gala. Wintour, always ahead of her time, found her favourite lilac Georgian crystal necklace at British jewellers S.J. Phillips Ltd., estimated to cost 20,000 USD and to be made from Georgian crystals. She has added to these beautiful stones by layering it up with similar pastel-coloured, antique necklaces, often wearing two or three necklaces at any time. Like a fashion icon, our style can include a Georgian-style statement necklace that suits our lifestyle and makes you feel like a Queen of glamour and in charge, reminding that style is more than spending a month's salary in an attempt to look great. There is a way of putting things together that makes your look unique, charming and classic. 
Whatever your own look might be, it could be time to think about your own uniform, and add a something stylish with a touch of surprise. Wintour's pieces make a statement about how we should approach things we love to wear, wear them often, outrageosuly and make them part of our uniform. Like the affluent, save money for the other wonderful things in life, like travel, expanding self-awareness, own property, love often and wear fun piecers you adore. Do you have a statement necklece you adore?If you take a look at almost any photo, you will see Anna Wintour wearing her beautiful necklaces. She seems to have them in nearly every colour, so the ones shown here are only a fraction of her collection. With her sizeable paychecks and passionate love of fashion, she either coordinates with the colours in her clothes or adds them for a pop of colour to accompany otherwise plain outfits and flatter also pale complexions. So, pop on a few of these babies, and you'll feel like a fashion icon in no time! Maybe I should wear a different colour combination every time I write my future posts, from the multi-coloured to the monochrome one, just to bring out my inner fashion critic!
Happy New Year! See you in 2020...🎉🎇🎊🍸
