Ashlee Simpson was spotted recently wearing one of her favorite cross necklaces. Over the years, she seems to have developed a severe affection for cross-style pendants.

The American singer-songwriter and actress must have a good collection since she has been spotted wearing many designs.

Sporting a simple yet chic ensemble, Ashlee chose to add that Oomph! factor to her look by piling on some gold cross-pendant necklaces. I am a fan of cross pendants, so I think this ensemble and choice of jewelry spelled C-H-I-C in big letters!

The artist often wears cross pendants during her concerts as well:

The cross-pendant trend has been gaining a following during the last few seasons and for reasons unrelated to religion. While popular among Christian celebrities, many non-religious Hollywood stars wear cross pendants.

Since layered necklaces are quite popular now, why not mimic Ashley’s style and pile on two or three cross-pendant necklaces in varying lengths to create that effect? Having two to three crosses around your neck isn’t considered over the top. Instead, it will pack a punch and make a statement (plus, it’s chic!).
