- Turtlenecks: When wearing a turtleneck, necklaces should be 18 inches or longer. A 22 inch necklace is ideal. Also, if the material of the turtleneck is thick or bulky, then the necklace should be a heavy gauge chain necklace or an ornate necklace. If small bead necklaces or a combination of such are desired, then layer the necklaces together to give a full look.
- Boatnecks: This neckline is a great throwback from the past. Ideally, the best necklace is 15 or 16 inch in length, and preferably, it is delicate and feminine. Pearl necklaces look amazing with this neckline. If you love long necklaces, add a 30 inch necklace to complete the look.
- Strapless: Strapless necklines can either accent an amazing necklace or avoid a necklace at all with this look. The determining factor is the event. If you are in an evening dress, a chocker or 16 inch necklace complements the style. However, an evening event with a strapless neckline is a great way to omit a necklace. For an everyday look, a large necklace is fun. Large gemstones or heavy metal necklaces are great for a trip to the store.
- T-shirt or V-neck: Everything works with these styles except a chocker style necklace. You can show your style with this neckline. It doesn’t matter if you love large, small, vintage, gothic, flashy, or delicate necklaces. They all work.
- Button-up: Usually, this style is for a professional environment. For a professional appearance, avoid anything that drops near your cleavage or distracts from your work. Large earrings that promote conversation will distract from what you are saying or doing, unless you are a fashion designer. People won’t take you serious if you can’t put together modest jewelry at work.
Jewelry expresses your personality. Even a shy person can be very expressive with their jewelry without talking about fashion and style. The best way to be known as a lady with great style is by learning the basics, and then branch out to create your own jewelry style for every occasion.
