Learn how to solve common watch and jewelry dilemmas with these Howcast videos.
You Will Need
- Several necklaces
- Several blouses or dresses
Consider the occasion
Consider the occasion and time of day. You want to select jewelry that is appropriate both to the neckline of your outfit and to the event you are attending.
Choose a princess length
Choose a princess length, which falls to the collarbone, when wearing a low cut or strapless neckline.
Pair a "V" neck "V" shaped
Pair a "V" neck top with a "V" shaped necklace. A rounded necklace looks mismatched if your neckline is plunging, so be sure the chain you wear mimics the cut of the top.
Go without a necklace if you are wearing a halter or one-shoulder style dress.
Wear a long necklace with turtlenecks
Wear an opera-length necklace, 26 to 36 inches, when sporting a turtleneck or high crew neck.
Pair a choker with strapless
Pair a 16-inch choker necklace with a strapless gown.
Pair your necklace with other jewelry
Pair your necklace with other jewelry. Only one bold piece of jewelry is allowed. Wear stud earring with a flashy necklace and stay away from matching sets that are outdated. With coordination, you'll be the toast of the town!
