Necklace Styles As We See Them !

Layered and Multi-Strand

necklaces are best for women with short, wide necks or large busts. Wear under a button-down blouse and allow it to peek out from under the open collar or with a bare neck or strapless gown for a long slender neck. Combine chunky styles with delicate for a bold look.
Look for vintage designs from Germany and Japan.
Chunky
necklaces are fun and bold . Usually made from larger beads in a variety of materials - bakelite, wood, gemstone, plastics, and coral, Some are on the short side, so they hug the neck and look best on women with long, slender necks: Chunky, short necklaces look best with clean necklines. Try them under an open-collar, button-down shirt, or with a simple crew neck, even an open scoop neck can be flattered with a single chunky necklace. . Don't wear a chunky necklace over a turtleneck or with a competing neckline (v-neck).
Extra-Long
First the 20's then the 80's ! Smaller beads updated and made from a variety of materials including wood, gemstone, plastic and feature interesting details like tassels and pendants. Extra-long necklaces are great for women with longer necks and sleek, straight up-and-down body shapes. Wear extra-long necklaces over a form-fitting sweater or turtleneck . For evening try over a sleek cocktail dress - just one outstanding long strand worn single or doubled with a short neck wrap.
Single Strand

in a delicate chain or tiny bead either plain for with a drop or tassel front is a perfect selection for daytime or evening whether it is plain or sparkly. Single strand of rhinestones can soften the staunchest suit. Wear a length to fit your fashion neck opening.
To show off pendants, wear with a solid background or bare neckline.
How To Wear
Your Necklace

Want your necklace to be the focus of your fashion ?
Don't pair it with large dangling earrings, or large chunky bracelets (unless they match with your necklace)
Simple stud or slim small hoop earrings, single bangle or chain bracelets.
Final Word
Don't wear competing jewelry items if you want a focus. Surround the focus with simple complimenting styles.
