Making a statement

Hey guys! I'm back..........& back with something a bit different from my personal fashion feats! :)

Don't get scared, it's to do with fashion only......but in a slightly different manner.....

I don't know how many of you remember me setting up shop in this post. Those who do, already know & those who don't, will get to know now that I have a li'l just-starting-out brand called Howrah Bridge........this brand is my baby & it has handmade accessories like brooches & neckpieces. It also does dresses, but right now, only for a very select & local clientele.

We all know what a rage statement neckpieces are in the fashion scene throughout the world. It's become a mandatory wardrobe essential to have, right after a white shirt, a little black dress & a good pair of denims.

Howrah Bridge also does statement neckpieces that are bold, quirky & fun.........and can lend a fashionable twist to any mundane outfit!
So, today, I thought, I'll share some of the statement neckpieces by Howrah Bridge along with ways of wearing the same!!!

Intrigued? Then scroll down........

 The "Up & Down" necklace - geometric, vibrant, fun.

Wear it with a plain white racerback tee & olive/khaki pleated trousers. The muted shades of the clothes bring out the bright colors of the necklace. Tan brogues (heels for a li'l oomph) & a tan satchel provide the perfect accessories in neutral shades. Complete the look with a chunky gold watch & gold-rimmed aviators. Let those vibrant colors be the focal point of the whole outfit!

 The "Binge on Fringe" necklace - rustic, tribal, unique.

Wear it with a romantic white shirt with lantern sleeves and a pair of well-cut, slim fit blue denims. Button up till the collar & wear the necklace ON the shirt. Fringed black boots continue the tassel tale. A cocktail ring with a chunky rock on it, is necessary for the hand that holds the big black envelope clutch. An outfit that'll rock as much at a brunch out with friends as at a gig of the boyfriend's band.

 The "Pleated Bib" necklace - quirky, bold, beautiful.

Wear it with a bright, but solid colored strapless dress. The whole neck will be dominated by this big beauty! A stack of bangles in different colors compliments the splash of colors on the neck. A pair of pretty printed espadrille wedges in a contrast color which matches the cute li'l bag with wooden handles will set off the plain dress perfectly. Wear this look to a beach festival & turn heads  in style!

So guys..........what do you think of these Howrah Bridge products? 
Will you wear them in the ways shown above? Or can you style these in more head-turning ways???

Do lemme know... :)

You can also see & shop more stuff at the Howrah Bridge blog or the Facebook page. In case of any queries regarding the details or prices of the above necklaces, please mail me at

Have a great week ahead people...........Happy Sunday night! ^_^
