It's all in the little details when it comes to dressing up and accessorizing. Sure, the look of your outfit counts. Yet, a single accessory can completely revolutionize and revamp your outfit.
Accessories have a power of transforming a simple outfit into something breathtaking. However, in order to do that, you need to know how to accessorize. Admittedly, there are certain accessories that can only go with a particular outfit.
Maybe because of the design or color(s) of the outfit. The occasion and the time of day also tend to dictate what type of accessory is appropriate. That said, the same goes for necklaces.
Your outfit does dictate the type of necklace that you should wear. Of course, all this depends on the neckline of your outfit, and whether or not it's strapless. The design of the dress calls for a certain type of necklace as well. In other words, different necklace lengths serve different purposes.
Let us take a look at this in more detail and check out our quality selection of necklaces of all lengths and styles.
Choker Length Necklaces
These types of necklaces are worn very close to your neck, above the collarbones. Choker necklaces often complement those with long and slender necks. If you have a short and wide neck, it is best you stay away from chokers.
Pair them off with a strapless dress or top or anything off- shoulder. Such necklaces also pair off well with V- neck outfits, as well as boatnecks. Choker necklaces tend to draw attention to your neck area.
Collar Length Necklaces
Collar Necklaces are closely related to choker necklaces. This is especially true in terms of length. Choker necklaces tend to be around 14 inches in length, but collar necklaces are about 16 inches.
Such necklaces often rest above your collarbones. More specifically, a collar necklace should rest at the base of your neck. This accessory goes well with off- shoulder dresses, V- type and scoop necklines.
Collar necklaces are designed to draw attention to the neck as well. So, they are great for individuals with long and slender necks.
Princess Length Necklaces
Truth be told, this type of necklace goes well with different body types. Regardless of the length of your neck, you can rock this necklace. It is designed to rest on your collar bones.
More often than not, princess necklaces are 18 inches in length. They complement almost any type of outfit, making them more versatile. Pair them off with a strapless or low- cut outfit. They also tend to go well with v- neck outfits, as well as turtleneck outfits.
Matinee Length Necklaces
This type of necklace is designed to rest around the bust area. Hence, they tend to draw attention to your bust area. They are typically 20-24 inches in length and are great for any body type.
Individuals with short and wide necks look great with this type of necklaces. Wear a matinee necklace for a casual look, to match the color of your outfit. Or wear one with your formal wear, to complement it. They go well with V- necks, shirts with collars, as well as turtlenecks.
Opera Length Necklace
Opera necklaces are often referred to as statement necklaces. Generally 24-32 inches in length, they are great for any body type. They tend to fall right below your bust line.
Due to their length, you can wrap it around to create a shorter length. This not only makes it versatile, but it also adds a little flair to your outfit by adding a layered look.
They go great with high crew necklines, as well as turtlenecks. Thus, it is great for evening wear because it has a more formal look. Most fashion experts would recommend this type of necklace for plus- size women.
Rope Length Necklace
Rope necklaces are often 36 inches. Just like opera necklaces, you can wrap rope necklaces around a couple of times. Of course, this depends on your preferences, and the style you are trying to achieve.
This type of necklace is ideal for taller women, but can still great on any body type. Rope necklaces go well with long elegant dresses such as evening wear.
