Necklaces are not reserved for women alone because men’s necklaces are popular on the catwalks worldwide. If they are designed for women necklaces are more filigree, decorated with trendy colours or diamonds, accessories for men hang on leather straps. The popular link chains for men differ in width, their effect is a fine sparkle or a loud statement. The choice of ladies’ necklaces is more varied because the design covers the whole spectre from elegant to playful.
Which kinds of necklaces fit to which occasions?
A necklace is a visible style element – for that a necklace has to be chosen in coordination with your outfit and the occasion where you want to wear it. A decent necklace that is close to your neck is an ideal accessory for a female business look. If a man works in a formal business environment, he should not wear a necklace and decide for a watch or a masculine bracelet. Narrow necklaces reach to the clavicle and they can be decorated with pendants. If you have a short neck a so called y necklace is the ideal choice for you. It is close to your neck but there is a long pendant that is going down vertical to stretch the neck optically. For a spectacular entrance in the evening women choose a collier. This necklaces cover your cleavage and are perfect for the evening dress but if you need a little more extravagance you can combine it with your casual outfit or your party dress. Colliers are very eye-catching and dominant, for that reason the rest of your accessories should be kept decent. While the collier is a noble and usually expensive thing, other oversize necklaces can be combined with a casual outfit. Oversize means that the necklace is extremely voluminous or opulent. A similar eye-catcher are long necklaces that reach until the belly button. Additionally, long necklaces can be decorated with pendants, feathers or rhinestones. The opulence spreads over your whole upper body and a long necklace seems always a bit more decent and can be combined with extravagant clothes.
