Best Bet: Morse Code Necklace

Though "more is more" becomes something of a styling philosophy around Fashion Week — we spotted kitschy bauble bibs out in full force — sometimes an outfit calls for something less flashy. These Morse Code necklaces by Portland-based label Coatt offer a delicate accent to play off wild prints or basic black and white. Fourteen-karat gold or gold-fill beads are strung on a twisted silk thread, spelling out a word, phrase, or personalized message. The cord comes various lengths and hues, and the weight of the dots and dashes hold the necklace’s rounded shape without weighing you down.
