Types of Necklaces to Complete Your Ensembles



Necklaces are often described in terms of their overall style, and there are a few basic types that every woman should own in order to be able to mix and match jewelry with the items in her wardrobe. Chain necklaces consist of metal links that are attached to one another and come in many different thicknesses and lengths. In some cases, a single charm may be worn on the chain, making the style a pendant necklace. Y necklaces are chain necklaces that have an additional length of chain attached to their fronts. A pendant, beads, gemstones or other embellishments are secured to the extension of the chain for added style. A fringe necklace is a chain that has rows of gemstones, beads or other embellishments dangling from its front edge. Beaded necklaces consist of one or more strands of plastic, glass, gemstone or metal beads strung on metal wire or string. Pearl necklaces have a similar look but are made up of colored or white, natural or synthetic pearls rather than beads.

Considering the Length of Necklaces



One of the most important things to consider when choosing a necklace is its overall length. The shortest necklaces are collars and chokers, which are 14 to 16 inches in length. Princess and matinee necklaces are 18 and 20 inches in length, respectively, and generally are the most popular lengths for necklaces. Measuring 30 inches in length, opera necklaces are one of the longest necklace styles and frequently are mixed and matched with shorter necklaces for a layered look. If you're looking for a necklace to match a particular outfit, you may want to experiment with string or yarn to determine what length of necklace will sit perfectly along the neckline.

Matching Necklaces to Your Neckline



In order for your outfit to be perfectly balanced, the shape of your necklace must complement the shape of your neckline. For crew neck, scoop neck, square neck, sweetheart and V-neck tops, blouses and dresses, choose necklaces that have a similar shape and that cover a large amount of your visible skin. As an example, a V-neck line will look beautiful with a fringe necklace that has a V shape, a Y necklace or a chain necklace with a V-shaped pendant. When choosing pieces for a top or dress with a high neck or embellished shoulders, such as a turtleneck or boat neck style, opt for a simple opera length necklace featuring a chain design or beads. Strapless tops look beautiful with a choker or collar necklace, and simple pendant necklaces will complement collared shirts. You should also take the color and how formal or casual the top or dress is into consideration when choosing necklace.
