When choosing the perfect necklace for your dress, there are a number of factors you need to consider. The basic goal when choosing a necklace for any outfit is to ensure that your necklace fits your outfit, neck size, personality and face shape. Fashion jewellery and necklaces, when used correctly, can enhance and accentuate any look.


Choosing the right necklace for your outfit can mean the difference between being perfectly dressed or overdressed. The following guide will help you choose the perfect necklace for any outfit.


Standard necklace lengths and compatible outfits

Necklaces are usually available in standard lengths. Necklace lengths are measured in inches. Buyers can reduce the length of their gold chain to suit their requirements. In general, women usually have more options than men when it comes to buying fashion jewellery and necklaces.


Before we discuss standard necklace lengths, knowing your neck size can also help you make the best decision about the type of necklace you want. The size of your neck can be measured with a sewing tape measure. To measure your neck size, wrap the tape around your neck.
