Often, we will get questions about how to select the right necklace for the outfit. That’s why we started the necklace of the week: to illustrate how the same necklace can be worn with many different types of outfits. A necklace can really compliment or even complete an outfit so it’s a good idea that you pick the right necklace for the right outfit especially if you are going for a statement piece.
In general, many girls pick their outfit first and then try to match back to a necklace. This makes sense as the outfit is heavily dependent on the weather, the occasion (i.e. work, girls night out, lazy Sunday, etc.), or even your mood. If you are wearing a simple necklace such as a little pendant, it will go with pretty much everything. But what happens when you want to wear something a little bolder. How do you pull this off? How do you pick the right necklace for your outfit?
A good necklace works with a button down or open skin. If you love it, you’ll wear it. Don’t settle for likes.
This week’s necklace was a little more tame. It’s opposite of last week’s neon yellow necklace that grabbed your attention right from the start. This necklace is much more subtle and seductive. So how do you make a necklace that whispers to you attention-grabbing? Well, for starters, you really need to pick your outfits carefully!
As an outlet for her fashion, food, and travel infatuation, Euriental is Kamara Harding’s way of documenting her personal style and travel experiences. The name comes from her unique background, a mix of half English and half Chinese. As a third-culture kid, Kamara has lived in England, Nigeria, Austria, Hong Kong, and Shanghai. We recently caught up via email between her busy travel schedule:
What Made You Start Euriental?
The enjoyment of creating something that takes time, effort and creativity. I’ve been blogging, like many others, since the Livejournal days and it just progressed naturally. Besides, my memory is pretty awful, so I like to have written & photographic accounts of my travels and experiences!
What Keeps You Motivated To Work On The Website?
When I get positive feedback on something I am proud of or when a brand I like expresses interest, it makes me feel like I’m doing something right.
Where Do You Get Your Fashion Inspiration?
Other blogs, Vogue and street style.
How Would You Describe Your Personal Style?
Casual chic. I either dress very femininely or very laid-back (aka jeans and loafers).
Any Other Websites You Would Recommend That We Should Follow?
It depends on the colours. If my outfit is bright or loud, I keep accessories to a minimum. If colours are neutral (beige, blush, dusty pink), I opt for simple, delicate pieces, such as a thin rose gold necklace. With all black, you can go a bit bolder.
Dog Or Cat?
Impossible to choose! I really want an exotic shorthair, but I have grown up with dogs and they are impossible not to love.
This week’s necklace was really fun to play around with. It was a neon yellow statement necklace. Neon is bright and bold and can be intimidating to wear because it stands out so much. But you can use this to your favor, you just need to own it!
This is week three of our necklace of the week photoshoot. This week I picked a long layered necklace versus the statement necklaces I have been wearing in previous weeks. I like long long layered necklaces because it accentuates the body.
Sometimes you want a necklace to be like a collar that brings attention to your neck and face. But with long necklaces the attention is drawn downwards towards your chest, leaving your shoulders and neck exposed. A completely different look that can really change an outfit.
I was on a plane traveling to Asia when I was flipping through the channels to see what to watch. I came across this CNBC documentary that was about J. Crew and I figured why the hell not…maybe it would put me to sleep. Turned out it was quite interesting and consequently no sleep for me.
Fast forward a few years; J. Crew has been making fashion headlines lately for all the wrong reasons: off target designs and declining quarterly sales. I decided to write this review because it details the inner workings of J. Crew and gives some insight into why J. Crew is having issues now. Onwards!
Rise, Fall, Rise Again
CNBC has a show called CNBC Originals (yes, I know, not very original) that delves into various topics from business profiles to various hot button issues. CNBC Originals decided to do a profile on Mickey Drexler and J. Crew in 2012 due to the phoenix-esque rise of J Crew. The piece was called J. Crew and the Man Who Dressed America. Continue Reading
This is week two of our necklace of the week photoshoot. The premise is simple, I change the outfit each day of the week, but reuse the same necklace.
I started this out because sometimes I hear girls tell me that they can only wear a certain necklace with one type of outfit. For example, my friend Kim told me the other day that she doesn’t like to buy statement necklaces because she can only wear them when she dresses up. I think this is simply not true.
A lot of girls don’t know how a necklace that may look formal, can work with a casual outfit as well. So I started necklace of the week to illustrate my point that necklaces can be very versatile. Necklaces can help compliment an outfit and a lot of times complete an outfit. Continue Reading
In honor of Anna Sui’s event I wore a boho look to the show.
I have to agree with my designer, Tiffany. I am not a fan of the new venue. It just seems blah compared to the character of Bryant Park. My offices are right next to Bryant Park and I used to love walking home from work and running into models and celebrities dashing in and out of the tents.
Anna Sui and the Runway
Yesterday was the penultimate day of the New York show where I had the chance to see Anna Sui’s Spring 2016 Collection. Continue Reading
New York Fashion Week was a little bit different this year. The event was hosted for the first time ever at Moynihan Station which is quite a departure from previous venues at the Lincoln Center and Bryant Park.
The tents of NYFW Bryant Park.
The event moved from Bryant Park because of the popularity and sheer volume of people wanting to attend shows. If you are a local New Yorker, you may recall when the event was hosted at Bryant Park, there would be a host of temporary tents that looked anything but fashionable.
Supposedly, the event moved from the Lincoln Center venue because of a dispute/lawsuit with residents over the private nature of the event on public park land.
At 10PM Fashion, we believe that the necklace should compliment the outfit and sometimes even complete the outfit. To illustrate our point, we are going to take a picture once a day of a different outfit….with the same necklace.
Pick your poison: workwear, night out, casual Sunday, and everydaywear.
This week’s necklace was one of 10PM’s statement necklaces featuring small white flower petals made from stones.

This will be a weekly event and we hope you will follow along as we do it on our Instagram account: @itstenpm
