Accessory Alert: Bib Necklaces

What are bib necklaces you may ask? Shaped like a babies bib, this supersized accessory stood out on the catwalks recently.

Despite the “infant” connotations, celebrities and fashionistas alike have adopted the catwalk look and are wearing bib necklaces to every event they can think of.  So even if you can’t afford to splurge on a new outfit this season, accessorizing with an eye-catching necklace could give your outfit the refreshing look that is needed.

Amy Adams, seen here at The Oscars 2009 wore a strapless red Carolina Herrera dress and a turquoise coloured jewelled bib necklace by Fred Leighton.

Pictured above is actress Kristin Kreuk at the Japanese premiere of Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li.  Her glamorous bib necklace goes to show that this accessory doesn’t have to be as bold as the catwalk versions; there are subtle ones out there too.  

Featured at Burberry, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Chanel, a bib necklace is indeed, quite a statement. In fact, at New York fashion week in February, it looked like all the guests were wearing one!

Where can we buy bib necklaces?

So we’ve seen them on the catwalk and the red carpet but where can we buy them? Of course, not everyone wants to wear such a theatrical statement. So, if you prefer your jewellery to be a little less dramatic, check out the metallic version from ASOS.
