Styling Pendants

1. Pay attention to the collar

Pendants work best with certain types of collars. If you want to make your pendant the focal point, here are some collars suggested to put emphasis on the piece.

Turtlenecks work best on those colder months. The high neckline of the turtleneck will put the focus on your pendant, which is what you want. If you prefer it on bare skin, go for a v-neckline. V-necks are ideal to highlight your piece. Although, you should be aware of how long the chain is. If you wear a pendant with a long chain, a lower v-neckline or a plunging neckline would be best to wear with it.

2. Accessorizing with pendants 

One must always be cautious when accessorizing with pendants because it can cause chaos in your outfit. Since pendants are already a dramatic piece due to their length and size. With that, it is best to keep other accessories smaller or to a minimum. For example, it is best to avoid large dangly earrings when wearing a pendant necklace. If you do decide to wear dangly earrings, keep them small to avoid the clutter around your face and neck.

Although, it is possible to wear multiple necklaces while still wearing a pendant necklace. The key is to know what kind of necklace to wear. Due to the length of pendant necklaces, it is easy to pair shorter necklaces with it. Chokers are ideal to wear with pendant necklaces since it won’t take the attention away and it will look much more subtle.

When it comes to pendants, it usually works better with taller people. Those who are under 5’4 might struggle due to the fact that pendants may look overwhelming.

3. Look at your neck

Those who have shorter necks should opt for longer pendant necklaces. These necklace chains should range from 20 to 24 inches. While those with longer necks can wear any length.
