So many times we throw on an outfit and we’re out the door when adding a simple accessory like a pair of earrings, a belt, a bracelet, a chic scarf or an interesting necklace would make all the difference in the world.
Here’s an example. I bought this gorgeous Diane Von Furstenberg poncho sweater and was so in love with the color that I thought that was all I needed.
But then I got thinking… “I wonder how that pendant I bought for my other outfit would look worn with this?”
I threw it on and here, you can see the difference. Which do you like?
I think my green gemstone pendant (which I only paid $10 for) elevates this look and adds real personality.
Now in the past we’ve dished out ideas on how to wear necklaces.We’ve talked about the right necklace for the right neckline, the right color necklace for your skin and lots more, but we haven’t talked much about pendant necklaces.
So, let me share a few tips for how to wear a pendant necklace:
- If you are short and petite you have to watch the length of your pendant necklace. Too long a pendant will drag you down and make you look shorter than you are.
- Don’t wear a pile of other jewelry or accessories with your pendant necklace. You want it to stand out and make a statement.
- I think most pendants look best worn over top of a solid color top rather than a print, so that it really stands out, although I did see a red and gold pendant on a leopard print top that looked great.
- In general, a bold, beautiful pendant is a wonderful thing. The long V-shape creates a long lean line that lengthens and slims your body.
So, go for it and have some fun with this popular accessory!
