Necklaces are a great accessory for making any statement in an outfit whether it be eye catching or minimal and an awesome way to add in some personality as well.
Try out these different necklace styles this season to add to your Winter wardrobe and have fun with it!
Layering up for the season doesn't just include your sweaters and jackets. Layer up your necklaces for a more interesting look. Try pairing together longer necklaces and pendants with chokers or more delicate pieces. Contrasting modern and geometric shapes with bohemian styles in short, medium length, and longer necklaces is a recipe for success with layering. The options are endless but the style looks its best when paired with turtlenecks in a loose fitted cable knit or a snug fitting basic sweater.
There's something about a choker necklace that has 90's grunge written all over it. This timeless punk accessory is perfect for winter ensembles. In a velvet black or vintage gold and jewels, this style gives off a more Victorian/Goth appeal. Wear this style for a night out paired with off the shoulder tops to showcase the details of the necklace or velvet and silk materials to keep the overall grunge vibe.
Long gone are the days of wearing name-plate necklaces but this modern and updated take on the idea is a more subtle way to say who you are. These necklaces are great for adding a personal touch to your layered necklace look. Pairing your monogram necklace with basic wardrobe essentials like a solid colored top or sweater is the best way to showcase your initials on the necklace; or opt for tops with a muted color such as nudes and grays to blend in with the gold or silver tones of the necklace instead.
Pendant necklaces are the accessory for many different types of styles because they come in so many different ways. Long pendants are great for casual outfits and work well for the Winter because you can still be bundled up in a cozy scarf layered over with the necklace still shown off. Try pendants with a birthstone or zodiac sign along with a monogram necklace for added personality.
