Classic and Classy Necklace Pendants

If you think that your outfit needs a little oomph, you can easily do this by accessorizing with jewelry.  Wearing a necklace is one fast way to make a boring and plain looking outfit interesting. You can look at your necklace display and see what’s missing with the current pieces you have. You can also look at the jewelry section of your favorite mall to see what is trendy and popular.  Of course, there are fashion magazines and TV shows wherein just by looking at the models wearing the latest outfits, you would know what would look best on you and go with your style.

Even with the new styles of jewelry coming out, as seen in necklace and earring display shows, there are still classic styles that have withstood the test of time. Pendants also are classic pieces that you can collect.  This is a great piece of jewelry to invest on as you can mix and match it with different kinds of chains in different lengths to give it a fresh new look every time you use it.  If you are wondering which classic pendant pieces you should look into if you are just starting out your collection, here are three suggestions:

  • For the classic look: The brooch

This is actually a double purpose jewelry piece as you can also use it as a pendant, as much as you can wear it as a pin.  It is a good investment piece because of its many uses. It is the best solution to a common dilemma most women have: How to wear a necklace or pendant when in business attire. Accessorizing clothes used for the office is a tricky situation! With a brooch worn as a pendant to a simple string bracelet, the attire looks very fashionable, but at the same time, dignified.

  • For the organic look with a distinct edge: Ancient symbols

This can be quite challenging to wear as it should go with your outfit. But if it is made of quality metal with exquisite craftsmanship, then it can be a piece that would make you stand out. The most popular pendants in this category would be the Ankh pendant, based on the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic character that symbolizes life. Other popular pendants based on ancient symbols are the Hindu Om symbol, Celtic symbols, and of course, the cross. These pendants can be worn in any occasion, but would practically be dependent on the necklace for overall effect. For example, the Ankh pendant would look brilliant with a simple black lace necklace with casual attire.

  • For the sentimental and classic look: Lockets

This is a sentimental and memorable piece to own because of the picture that can be placed inside. Some can go as quirky as hair strands, but these pendants would also look good on both formal and office wear.

Take a look at your necklace display and see what classic pendants would look best with your current necklace collection.

Rock Stars Who Wear Sunglasses

Something about the rock star with the nerdy look. Think of the aggressive guy in the group who ends his day reading philosophy books. Ah, there goes that unmistakable charm. In here are some of the more popular rockers, though not strictly aggression-spitters, whose trademark glasses are as recognizable as the music that they make. The kind that makes you want to go running at the wholesale sunglasses section of the department store.

John Lennon

John Lennon

Easily the most popular of the lot, Lennon inspired a whole generation with his and his band’s music. It was a revolution beyond musical statures, and his hippie-style sunglasses were always at the front line. The one thing fans don’t want to remember though is the sight of his blood-stained pair of sunglasses (different from his trademark pair) after his death by gun shot from a deranged fan on December of 1980.

Elton John

There really is not one pair of sunglasses Sir Elton John is famous for. You want to talk about a man with a massive collection of glasses. During concerts, Sir Elton wears outlandish sunglasses to complete the entire getup. Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994, there’s no denying this man’s immense contribution not just in rock, but music in general.

Bono

U2’s music is characterized by simplicity. Well, more like simplified genius, and with a purpose. Much like why he wears sunglasses. More than fashion, Bono wears sunglasses because his eyes are sensitive to light, making his right eye swell up with prolonged exposure.

Buddy Holly

One of the pioneers of rock and roll, Buddy Holly (Charles Hardin Holley in real life) kicks with the nerdy look. From the early years of rock and roll to this very day, he is regarded as a true inspiration to well-known acts the world over. Too bad he had to go early at the age of 22 in a plane crash.

Joe Satriani

Bald guy with the sunglasses who plays some mean guitar. Over the course of his career, Joe Satriani has worked with some of the finest musicians in the land, much thanks to his insane guitar chops. Onstage and in public, “Satch” likes sporting a pair of vintage sunglasses that only adds to the cool.

Just like their music, these artists’ sense of style never goes out of fashion. The next time you check out wholesale sunglasses, how about keeping them in mind?
