Fashion magazines are always referencing "statement accessories" -- and with good reason.   Statements are the items worth noticing, the ones that stand out from the crowd.  As far as I'm concerned, the statement is the ultimate accessory item right now.   The right statement can elevate an everyday look instantly.  

 I've never been shy about my penchant for statement pieces, though.   Look, minimalism may be chic, but it can also be a bore.  More is more!  Why wear just one bangle when you could wear two, three, four?  Of course, one should never aspire to excess...but there's an exception to every rule.  As far as I'm concerned, when it comes to jewelry,  it's fine to pass on the "pared down" look and just accessorize oneself to abandon.  

My advice this season: understated is overrated.  Spring is all about the standout.  (Seriously, how many delicate and dainty gold necklaces do you need?  Not that many.)    Anyway, you can check out six of my favorite statement necklaces currently available from Hatch in the slideshow below.   Even better, you can get them for 40% off this month with the code DONTDODAINTY.
