|The Ziggy Necklace|
How do you choose your necklace? Generally, when picking out a necklace we tend to echo the look of the neckline. This works well most of the time. For example, a v-neck top goes well with a y-shaped necklace with a focal point, such as the Ziggy Necklace. This type of necklace also complements boat neck and crew neck tops.
|The Purple Faux Lariat|
When you wear higher necklines, it's important not to overcrowd your neck area, and by choosing a longer necklace, you allow both your neckline and your necklace to shine. For tops with turtle necks or cowl necks, necklaces such as lariats and multiple strand styles look best. A necklace such as the Purple Faux Lariat would work nicely with a higher neckline.

It can also be helpful to know what the different necklace lengths are called: 14" is a collar, 16" is a choker, 18" is princess length, 20" is matinee length, 24" is opera length, and 30 - 33" is a rope or lariat.

Adding a necklace gives your outfit a stylistic finishing touch. And although certain necklaces match particularly well with certain necklines, what's most important is wearing a piece you love. How you wear your jewelry is a personal choice, so remember to make sure that you let your personality shine through!
