How To Choose The Perfect Necklace

Posted on October 4, 2021 by Leandro Gabert

That necklace you wear can make or break the outfit. Of all of the jewelry pieces you may select, your necklace can make the best impact on the overall appearance.

Take a simple black cocktail dress for example. By itself, is almost like a uniform. You could disappear in the crowd if you're not careful.

Add on a lariat. A stunning necklace that brings attention. Even better, if you've got the height for it, then put on a pearl rope, or a stunning necklace that's 37 inches or more. A really long necklace which makes a grand statement.

Choosing the ideal necklace is all about what suits you. Your height. Your build. Your neck. The outfit you're going to wear.

The ideal choice makes the entire look just gorgeous.

Let us begin with the neckline of this outfit. You want the focal area of the necklace to be against your skin or contrasted against the fabric of your outfit.

The last thing you need is a necklace that's partially hidden on your neckline. That will spoil the overall appearance. If the pendant plays peekaboo from the neckline, then shorten the string. Or place that ring in either a shorter string, so it sits confidently above your neckline, or go for a much longer necklace which would contrast beautifully against the fabric of your outfit.

Then look at your neck.

Have you got a long slender neck? If you do, collars or chokers are for you. These ultra short necklaces bring out the beauty of your long slim neck.

In case you've got a short neck, then make it appear longer by wearing a long necklace or a lariat. The long vertical line of a long necklace makes your neck look longer. The lariat, together with the two dangling ends gives the illusion of length. These bracelets also have an overall burning visual impact on your whole look.

Finally, examine your overall build. If you're petite, then go for daintier pieces. For those who have a larger build, go for something chunkier. Your necklace should be in proportion to your physique.

As soon as you have assessed yourself, select a choice of necklaces that flatter your body, in colors that match your outfits. A couple of signature pieces are all you require.
