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.

The necklace should the centerpiece of the outfit so opt for plain, solid colors. The solid background of your clothing will cause the necklace to stand out without a doubt.

4. Large pendants vs small pendants

Don’t know if you should wear a larger or small pendant? Well, large pendants are always used as the centerpiece of an outfit. Since large pendants are shiny and draw attention, your outfit should be simple. A solid color works best with a simple neckline.

Small pendants can be used as a statement piece or to tie an outfit together. When wearing a small pendant, the chain must be taken into consideration. Since the pendant is smaller, a thin and delicate chain should be paired with it.

5. Transforming an outfit

If you feel like your outfit is too simple, pendants are a great way to add life to it. The pendant will decorate your outfit and give it a touch of color and shine. But you must consider what kind of pendant you wear with the occasion and in what manner you want to transform the outfit.

To those who want a casual look, smaller pendants like dog tags or delicate pendants are the best way to add dynamically. If you are going for a posh look, a bold and chic pendant will be your best option.
