Necklaces are more than just accessories, they have the power to elevate any outfit and reflect one's unique style. The length of a necklace can impact the appearance and the overall feel of your outfit.
Different necklace lengths:
- 40cm ~ sits snugly around the base of your neck, perfect for accentuating your collarbone, as seen with our paperclip necklace above and Pixie Dust necklace
- 45cm ~ a timeless favourite, falling just below the collarbone, as seen with our Tiny Moments diamond necklace and colourful rolo bead necklace. This versatile length suits most necklines and works well with both casual and formal outfits
- 50cm or longer ~ for a touch of drama, this length sits comfortably at the centre of your chest, and its elongated design allows for stunning layering possibilities. Ideal for a high-neckline or as a statement piece with a low-cut neckline
How to style necklaces
Experimenting with different necklace lengths allows you to create diverse looks.
Pairing two or three different necklace lengths together is a great way to add dimension and style to your outfit. Here are some tips for mixing and matching necklace lengths effectively:
- Layering with graduated lengths ~ this adds depth and visual interest to your look
- Choose complementary styles ~ mix delicate chains with statement pieces or combine different textures and materials to create a balanced and cohesive look. It is even popular to mix different colour metals like silver and different shades of gold ~ yellow gold, white gold or rose gold
- Mind the neckline ~ be mindful of your outfit's neckline when selecting necklace lengths
- Play with pendants ~ pendants can add a focal point to your necklace layers
- Balance proportions ~ if you are wearing a bold statement necklace, consider pairing it with a shorter, simpler necklace to balance the proportions
Embrace the versatility of necklace lengths and let your personal style shine through ~ wear yourself
