Sometimes all you need is a string of bold beads to take an outfit from fine to fabulous! Buying new clothes for every occasion can get expensive, fast, but you can easily (and cheaply) make an old ensemble unrecognizable or breathe new life into your favorite dress by pairing it with a bright string of beads. So spruce up that plain white tee or little black dress with one of these inexpensive, vibrant necklaces.
1. This chunky chartreuse and cobalt blue string of beads will keep summer alive in your wardrobe even as the heat starts to subside. Try combining this necklace with a skirt of the same shade of blue or yellow and a white tee for a chic, late-summer look.

2. These bronze and blue beads over a flouncy summer dress create a fun day look. Or use them to spice up that black dress you've worn to every office do; draw everyone's eyes to your necklace, and no one will remember they've seen that dress before! You could also couple these beads with earrings or bangles of a matching metallic to tie together your accessories. But be careful not to overdo it with too-big earrings, or you might end up drowning in jewels.

3. This cluster of beads teamed with a flowing white sundress makes the ultimate beachy look. Try matching your nail polish to the soft pastel color of the beads, while keeping the rest of your outfit neutral-hued, for a sophisticated-yet-playful ensemble.
