Necklace Styling Tips You Didn’t Know You Needed

March 31, 2022

No matter if you like dressing up to the nines or prefer to live in your sweats, there is always place for jewelry in your look. With a simple necklace, you can instantly transform your most casual outfit into something more elegant and put together, or make a formal outfit look much dressier.

But have you ever been stumped trying to pick a necklace to pair with your outfit?

Because we have!

With so many necklace trends, styles, colors, and lengths to pick from, it can often be overwhelming to decide what looks best on you. Sure, you can always take the easier route and wear your favorite minimal necklace with every ensemble, but that also means you will be stuck in that style rut.

If you want to take your necklace game to the next level, here are a few styling tips you need to keep in mind:

First, two things to consider:

Before you start accessorizing your looks with necklaces, there are two crucial things that you should consider.

  • What do you want the necklace to do for you?

  • Although a necklace is an accessory to enhance your outfit, it also acts as an expression of your personal style. So, you need to determine what you want it to do for you. Do you want it to make a statement? Do you want it to accentuate your features? Or do you simply want it to complement your look?

  • What is the shape of your neckline?

  • If you are unsure whether a necklace looks good on you, consider the shape of your neckline to make the right choice. For instance, if you are wearing a V neck, the necklace should have a similar shaped design that ends just above your neckline.

Don’t overdo it

When you are accessorizing with jewelry, it can often be easy to go overboard. Unless there is a specific aesthetic you are trying to create, avoid wearing too many jewelry pieces at once. Let your necklace shine. For instance, if you are wearing one necklace, you can keep your earrings simple or skip them altogether. If you are layering your necklaces, avoid wearing big earrings, multiple rings, or a huge stack of bracelets.

Don’t be afraid to experiment

Who wants to look basic all the time? Jewelry, especially necklaces, offers the perfect opportunity to experiment with your style. You can play around with necklaces in different lengths, combinations, metals, and even colors to create fun, interesting looks. Statement necklaces can instantly lift up a relaxed, casual look. If you want to tone down an outfit, adding a simple chain with a charm will do the trick.
