Nicole Kidman rocked a diamond No.5 one for her Chanel perfume advert, Carrie layered hers heavily in a wedding try on in the Sex and The City movie and Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Lawrence bonded over theirs at the Oscars this year. What are we talking about? Back to front necklaces of course! Ever since Oscar winner J.Law rocked one with her Dior gown on the night she was crowned Best Actress, the trend for wearing a necklace on your back has been gaining in popularity.
You only have to be on Pinterest around 5 minutes before gorgeous toned backs and equally gorgeous jewels find you and personally, here at Anna Lou of London we love the look. Whether worn ultra dressy with an evening gown or wedding dress, or kept casual with quirky charms and colourful tops, this is a jewellery trend that really makes you stand out from the crowd.
The great thing is, its so easy to do. What could be more simple than taking your favourite necklace and turning it around to dangle down your back instead of your nape? For the evening look it works best when worn with a backless dress for maximum impact but if you are not that brave then make sure its either a statement colour, shape or material to really stand out, and wear it with a neutral colour. You can choose to go long and dangly a la Jennifer (pearls also work extremely well) or short and eye-catching like Anna Hathaways.
Celebs such as Mary Kate Olsen and Kate Hudson are also fans, clearly adhering to the rule that showing a bit of back cleavage is the sexier route to go down, and we also spotted the trend a fair bit at the fashion weeks this season. And as soon as it hits the street style galleries you know its a winner!
