Choosing a Necklace That Suits You
Think about the colors you are most likely to say look good on you. Are they warm, bright colors? Or cool blues and soft greens? Gold looks best when paired with warm bright colors, such as red and orange. It also looks fantastic with deep purples. On the other hand, if you tend to wear cool colors such as light blues and greens, silver may be more your style. Beaded necklaces can further complicate things because of the enormous variety of colors. However, as long as you stick with colors you normally wear or colors that complement them you should be fine. If your wardrobe consists of mainly dark colors, a pop of color is also a good option.
Now it’s time to think of the style of necklace best suits you. There is a type of necklace to fit any personality, from fun beaded designs to elegant pendants. One of the best ways to find the perfect type of necklace is to think about your personality. Are you a quirky, fun loving person? Or are you a down to earth lover of the outdoors?
A more casual type of necklace is suitable for someone who considers themselves to be fun loving. Many beaded necklaces fall into this category, especially those featuring bright colors. Someone who loves the outdoors will appreciate a necklace made of natural materials, such as stone beads and leather cord. If you dress your best for every event, an elegant pendant might be just the thing. Though a diamond pendant is a great choice, your personal gemstone preference might bring a pop of color to your outfit.
Necklace length is another thing to consider when trying to find the perfect necklace. The perfect length mainly depends on the neckline of your outfit and the length of your neck. You won’t to cover a long necklace with your clothes. Try to find a necklace with a length that keeps it above the neckline of the outfits you’d most want to wear with it. A choker necklace is ideal for women with long, graceful necks, particularly chokers with multiple strands.
Remember to choose a necklace that will also complement your face shape. Women with round faces will want to wear necklaces that feature graduated bead or chain size that gets smaller as it goes around the neck. It will have the effect of elongating the face.
