The Trendsetter: Long Necklaces

October 26, 2010

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.

    Can one wear a long necklace while wearing a collor, such as a blouse?

      Thanks for the question Jan!

      Yes, you can definitely wear a long necklace with a collared blouse. I would recommend wearing a long necklace that has a simple chain and a unique pendant. This way the chain will fall nicely on your neck and the pendant will lay over your shirt and serve as the focal point of your outfit. A thick, beaded necklace will lay funny and compete too much with the collar of the blouse.

      Have fun accessorizing!
