Tips for Choosing a Necklace
There are so many types of necklaces that you can find but having so many options can be confusing when you are looking for one that will go with your outfits. There are several parts of the necklace such as the pendant, chain; clasp etc. and you have to think about how each of these parts affects the final look.

It is best to measure your neck before you start browsing so that you know the sizing for the necklace. All you need to do is get some measuring tape or a piece of string to wrap it loosely around the neck. In the case of the latter method, you can measure the piece of string to get the length. When selecting a pendant, you will need to add four or five inches to the original neck measurements so that you have a good length for the pendant.


The jewellery you wear can either bring the outfit together or create a clash. Your height also comes into the equation when considering the ideal length of a necklace. If you are shorter than 5’-4”, then it is best to stay between 16 and 20 inches for the necklace length. When the necklace is too long if you are of short stature, then it can overwhelm your frame. If you are taller, you can experiment with a range of necklace lengths. Longer necklaces will actually look better as it can draw attention to your frame.


The design of the necklace is also important. You can wear a dainty necklace for a touch of classic look or go for something minimal for a modern look. Before you choose an outfit, think of the occasion and what best suits that. You also have to think about what makes you more comfortable in the outfit. Personal fashion should always be about your comfort and simply, what makes you happy. You can always choose a variety of necklaces from online stores. There is costume jewellery, statement pieces, vintage pieces and jewellery that have been customized for you. Another important note is that some people are allergic to certain metals. And if you are choosing a necklace, you need to find out if you have any metal allergies. The common allergies are to lower carat gold and silver.


The clothes you have in your wardrobe also have an impact on the type of necklace you wear. Think about your personal fashion and whether there is a style that you lean more towards. Maybe there is a certain color that you wear most. All of this should be taken into account when you select a necklace. This way, you can have a necklace that will match almost anything in your wardrobe.


This will reduce the number of accessories you have to purchase. For example, if you have a lot of basics and minimal outfits, you can select a more dramatic design for the necklace so that it creates a point of attention and gives something unique to the outfit. But if you want your clothes to do the talking, then a more delicate or minimal necklace will be best so that it still complements the outfit but doesn’t steal all the attention.
