How to spice it up like Mel B with a chain collar

Mel B has come a long way style-wise from her days as "Scary Spice." In fact, according to the Daily Mail, the performer-turned-judge also recently decided to get some of her tattoos removed, including a larger piece on her right arm. At the "America's Got Talent" pre-show event in New York City, she wowed onlookers in a bright green, skin-tight dress with sheer side panels, proving once again that she's re-vamping her image.

The highlight of her ensemble was her bold collar necklace and matching gold ankle-strap heels. Her wild, wavy mane was the only evidence of her former persona from the British pop group. Still, her choice of jewelry was impeccable, as it balanced out the provocative bodycon dress without being too flashy or overstated. Want to class it up on your next night out? Take a cue from Mel B and follow these tips:

Keep it simple
Sometimes a simple necklace can have more of an impact than an overly intricate piece. The 3 Piece Twisted Curb-Link Necklace, Bracelet And Drop Earrings Set In Yellow Gold Tone has a classic curb-link design and is super versatile. Try donning the necklace with a cream sheath dress for a more elegant look, or with slouchy jeans, a blazer and pumps for a more casual affair. You have the option of wearing the matching bracelet and earrings, but the necklace also makes a statement on its own. For an added edge, you can also layer it with other link necklaces.

Bling it on
If you need some sparkle to liven up a plain outfit, the 3 Piece Crystal Perforated Curb-Link Necklace, Bracelet And Earrings Set In Yellow Gold Tone should do the trick. This necklace features the same curb-link shape but also has a hammered, crystal-studded texture than can boost the glam factor with a black one-shouldered dress or a silk romper. Just keep the rest of your accessories to a minimum - this stunner is enough drama for one ensemble.

Natural beauty
As summer slowly fades into fall, the 2 Piece Leaf Necklace And Earrings Set In Yellow Gold Tone 18" is a perfect way to get you in the mood for the upcoming season and seamlessly transition your favorite garments. The necklace is striking against a tribal print maxi dress, but works just as well with a white tank, cropped olive paperboy pants and strappy chocolate leather wedges.
