How to Wear This Chic Necklace Trend We’re Seeing All Over NYC
Plunging neckline not required
The summer of the choker is still going strong, but we’ve been noticing a variation making the street-style rounds in NYC lately: The lariat. The low-hanging necklace has been around for a while—you may remember the Western-inspired version of the early 2000s. Thankfully, the look has evolved into something chic and minimal. Here’s how to wear one in 2016.
Pair It with Stripes
A lariat’s long vertical lines make a complementary contrast against a striped sheath dress.
