So often, we throw on an outfit and out the door when adding a simple accessory like a pair of earrings, a belt, a bracelet, a chic scarf, or an exciting necklace that would make all the difference in the world. I’ve dished out ideas on how to wear necklaces. I’ve discussed the proper chain for the right neckline and the right color necklace for your skin, but we haven’t spoken much about pendant necklaces. So, let me share a few tips for how to wear a pendant necklace.
Pendant necklaces can be worn with all kinds of necklines. They also look great on a plain top worn with a jacket.
The one time you might want to avoid a pendant necklace is when you have a big bust unless, for some reason, you want all eyes on your breasts. I can’t help but think of Joan on Mad Men with her infamous pendant pen!
- If you are short and petite, you must watch the length of your pendant necklace. Too long a pendant will drag you down and make you look more straightforward 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 a solid color top rather than a print so that it 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 extended 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!
