{Why We Love} Cheap-Chic Statement Necklaces that Look Expensive

statement necklaces for cheap

Here at the Trend Hungry HQ, we are all about accessories. You can have a plain dress, shirt, whatever and create a totally different look just by the way you accessorize. Whether I’m styling a look for a client, a TV segment, or just for myself,I rely on statement necklaces and here’s why.

statement necklaces under $25

1. They take little thought. Throw it on, and go.

2. Attention ahead. Bling around you neck draws the eye there, and isn’t that where people should be looking anyway?

3. Compliment magnet. They aren’t called “statement necklaces” for no reason and tend to reel in the “Ooo’s,” “Aahhs,” and the “where did you get that?” remarks.

4. Adds style. Whether you have jeans and a tee on or pair your necklace with a little black dress, a statement necklace makes you look more styled, even though like point #1 says, it takes little thought and effort.

Since these babies tend to be memorable it’s good to have a few in rotation. The six pictured are under $25.

1. A Girl Can Gleam Blue Statement Necklace, $15.00 at LuLu*s.

Friday Find: Stylish Candle Holders Too Good To Ignore


Earlier this week we gushed about our faves from H&M’s home collection (ahem, which just launched in the US!) and we forgot to share these freakin’ amazing H&M candle holders. Shame on us!


There are so many reasons why these candle holders deserve the #FridayFind spot. First, the price is right at $3.95. Second, they look luxe. They also feel kinda Grecian, will look fab on a coffee table tray or um, anywhere, and these glass candle holders come in three metallic shades: copped, gold, silver.

So which shade suits your style? Comment below or tweet me @jessieholeva #FridayFind!

Why We Love: Galoshes

By Brooke

It goes without question that Sandy has given us the perfect reason to scope out galoshes. Out of all rain wear, galoshes are the most practical item to add to your wardrobe, plus they’re most fun to dress up! I’m still haunted with the thought of the hideous bulky yellow rain boots my parents used to make me wear as a child. But celebs like Hilary Duff have been spotted casually rocking this look reviving hope to this trend! Hilary has made Hunter boots a staple item in her wardrobe, and we can see why. When you search images for celebs in rain boots, all that pops up are pictures of Hunter boots, a lot of pictures. Although these boots tend to run on the more expensive side (a Trend-Hungry approved splurge), there are a lot of ways to get this look without emptying your bank account. Feeling a little skeptical about investing in a pair of galoshes? Here are a few reasons that put our savvy-saving minds at ease …



1. Sandy. I think that should say enough.

2. Showoff your style. These babies come in all sorts of fun patterns and prints. They can liven up the most simple outfit while serving their purpose. Continue reading…

Okay, fringe is one of those trends that keeps reoccurring, and on various pieces – bags, skirts, your hair. But I’m not sick of it and fringe boots are always on the top of my shopping/browsing list. In honor of my quest for the perfect fringe boots (I think I found them!), here’s a slew of celebs wearing this trend over the last few years: Mischa Barton, Kourtney Kardashian, Kate Hudson, Vanessa Hudgens. And, here are four reasons why we (as in me, Trend Hungry Contributors, and you fab fashionistas!) are obsessing over fringe boots.

#whywelove: fringe boots

1. They’re a statement piece. Fringe can be subtle, but those hanging pieces add interest – perfect for pairing with other trned, or letting the boots be the focus. Continue reading…
