The Trendsetter: Long Necklaces
We’ve all had mornings when we look at our outfit and feel like something is missing. Luckily, there’s a simple and inexpensive way to spruce up bland attire. The answer? A long necklace.
Long necklaces are not only a quick fix for adding an element of interest, this trendy touch also helps create the illusion of having a longer body.
Simple shirts without a lot of detailing around the neckline go best with a long necklace. This makes the necklace a focal point and keeps your upper body from looking too busy.
Long necklaces come in all shapes and styles–from pearls to chains to sparkling beads–making it easy to find a piece to match any look. With my own collection, I like to buy classic pieces that mix well with various outfits and then look for wacky necklaces that can be a fun addition when I’m in the mood.
Some of my favorite long necklaces are pictures below. I love the ease of throwing on a necklace to kick up my look. Great local stores for jewelry include Peacock and Art Gecko, both located in downtown Madison.
