Oscar 2013 Trend Alert: Backwards Necklace

Posted By:

We are used to celebrities wearing opulent jewellery to the Oscars red carpet. Diamonds, emeralds and crystals are usually shown off at the Oscars red carpet. However. Have you ever noticed a celebrity wearing a necklace backwards? Well we have. Oscars 2013 is a storehouse of fashion trend. But the most innovative fashion trend to come out of Oscars 2013 is the style of wearing a necklace backwards.

Not one but two big stars have tried this style on the Oscars red carpet. The concerned Hollywood beauties are Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Lawrence. This year, both Jennifer Lawrence and Anne Hathaway wore their necklaces backwards on the red carpet.

Backwards Necklace

Earlier we have seen Nicole Kidman wear a necklace backwards for a jewellery advertisement. Apart from that Kate Hudson had worn a black thread-like pendant on her back but that was more of bohemian style. We have never before seen this avant garde style being tried on the red carpet of a major event like Oscars 2013.

If you too want to sport this style of wearing the necklace backwards, then here are the few thing that you need to keep in mind.

Backless Gown: This style only looks good with a backless gown or a dress that has a very deep cut back. Always remember that jewellery looks good on bare skin and on on fabric.

Crossed Back: Anne Hathaway has created an interesting style by wearing a diamond necklace backwards on a crossed back gown.

The Pendant: If the necklace has a pendant, then the pendant should hang backwards. This ensures that the heavy weight of the pendant keeps the necklace dripping backwards. It also constitutes the essence of the style statement.

The Long Beaded Necklace: While Anne Hathaway is wearing a smaller necklace, Jennifer Lawrence's necklace si really long. Yet when you see it from the front, it looks like a chic and tight fitting necklace. She as used the length of the necklace to adorn her back. But this does not affect her front view because this necklace has no pendant.

Hairstyle: You either need an ultra short haircut like Anne Hathaway or you need to tie your hair up like Jennifer Lawrence for this style to work. Your hair should not cover up the necklace at your back or else, it defeats the purpose of wearing the necklace backwards.

This is the biggest trend alert from Oscars 2013. Stay online for more.
