How to Wear Long Necklaces for Women

Did you know that people have been crafting and wearing jewelry for more than 25,000 years? Back then, people used shells and bones for their necklaces. Today, we enjoy necklaces made out of silver, gold, pearls, and more.

Long necklaces for women are especially elegant. But how can you wear them to ensure they look their best? And what kind of outfit or colors should you wear to go along with your high-quality jewelry?

Keep reading and learn more about how to wear long necklaces with the utmost style.

Wear Long Necklaces With Low-cut Blouses

If you have a statement necklace that is quite long, you will want to show it off. The great thing about long necklaces is that they make your figure look longer and slimmer than it really is. A blouse or shirt with a low-cut collar can also accomplish this. 

By combing the two, you won't have any trouble being the most stylish person in the room. But is there a specific way to do this, you might ask? First, consider the length of your necklace. 

The location at which the necklace falls is vital when it comes to necklace styling tips. For example, does it fall in the middle of your chest or all the way to your waist or hips? Most long necklaces tend to fall somewhere against the chest. 

In this case, you can choose a V-neck blouse with a plunging neckline to frame the necklace against your body. This works well for both minimalist and more extravagant necklaces. However, you should be careful about choosing the shirt based on the appearance of the necklace.

Matching Your Clothes With Your Necklace

Suppose that you have a relatively minimal gold chain necklace. Because this necklace is more subtle, you can dare to be a bit more extravagant with the shirt itself. On the other hand, if the necklace itself is quite extravagant on its own, you will want to pair it with a more minimalist shirt.

That way, you won't risk looking too dull or over the top. Instead, both the shirt and necklace will balance each other out. You can, of course, also match your clothes based on the color of your necklace.

However, if you're dealing with a gold necklace, you can wear almost anything with it. If you wear a necklace with colored gems, you must be more particular about how your clothes match.

Layer Your Necklaces

Nothing is sadder than a necklace left all alone on your figure.

While long necklaces are elegant, they often leave a lot of space on your figure compared to shorter necklaces—unless they are bulky. To fix this problem, all you need to do is layer an extra necklace or two over your long necklace.

Keep in mind that you shouldn't go overboard when doing this. Some people believe wearing more jewelry at once is better, but this is often not the case. If you wear too many necklaces at one time, you will find that your overall look will start to look crowded and messy.

Instead of focusing on the elegance of a few necklaces, people will focus on the rat's nest of tangled necklaces you managed to tie around your neck. Try to wear no more than two or three necklaces to avoid this problem. Any more than this will obscure your overall look.

Colors and Textures

Also, be careful about different colors and textures when wearing several necklaces at one time.

If the colors of the different necklaces clash too much, they might produce a strange result that won't look ideal. Of course, you can wear colorful necklaces if you want, but the necklaces should still all harmonize with each other and with the rest of your outfit.

This will be easy to accomplish if you're wearing all gold necklaces. Gold goes with almost everything, including itself. For a bit of extra flair, choose gold necklaces with a few additional decorations, such as pearls or gemstones.

That way, your jewelry will make your outfit pop for sure.

Don't Wear Long Necklaces With Long Shirts

As mentioned before, long necklaces tend to make your figure look longer and slimmer than usual.

While this is usually a good thing, it can come back to bite you if you wear a long shirt with a long necklace. Combining these two items will create a look that most people will not be happy with.

The combination will make your entire body look unusually long and perhaps even a bit saggy. To fix this problem, all you need to do is wear a different shirt, such as a crop top or try tucking your shirt into your pants. That way, you can balance out the length of the necklace with the length of your shirt.

Keep this in mind with dresses as well. For example, if your dress is a maxi dress, a long necklace may not go well with it unless the dress is fitted to your body.
