How to Style the Karl Lagerfeld Tokidoki Necklace

December 15, 2013

The Karl Lagerfeld x Tokidoki necklace is a collaboration between Karl Lagerfeld and the Japanese-inspired lifestyle brand known for its bold aesthetic and quirky characters.

Available in select Karl Lagerfeld retail locations since August, it combines the concept of high fashion jewellery with a watch function to create an innovative digital timepiece.

The character of the necklace is Karl himself with his trademark dark sunglasses and white ponytail. When you push the buttons either side of his glasses, the time displays digitally on the front.

It’s really quite clever and incredibly cute.

However, because it’s a standout piece, styling it can be quite tricky.

As the pendant is rather eye-popping, I thought I’d tone down the rest of my outfit with simple cuts and colours.

I decided to team my button-up denim shirt with a black leather A-line skirt and cutout boots. This would allow the necklace to take centre stage and stand out for all the right reasons.

That said, it was a rather chilly day so I needed an extra layer. Therefore, I thought I would add interest to the outfit through a leopard print coat.

A Match Made in Heaven

This leopard print coat is perfect for keeping toasty during the cold winter months and produces a fun, quirky look when combined with the Karl Lagerfeld Tokidoki necklace.

Finally, I decided to add a neutral, woolly scarf for comfy, cosy chic.

A warm and fashion-forward OOTD featuring a charismatic pendant that also tells the time? I’m onto a winner here.
