A necklace can add extra style to your outfits. They are surely a classy staple among females in office settings. Necklaces can also be fun to wear for some casual looks. Even some males wear necklaces, and there are some unisex necklaces. No matter who you are, it is time to dress up your neck with a necklace or two. This blog post is all about necklaces. I will be sure to offer a whole lot of insight on necklaces since there are so many kinds that appeal to so many senses.

--- Necklaces ---

The best way to dress up your neck is with a necklace. Necklaces can come in many varieties ranging from simple to statement-making. They can be casual or classy. They can be priced very low or have very exorbitant prices. There are necklaces for both males and females, even though you'll mostly see females sport necklaces as part of their wardrobe.

More casual necklaces can be comfortably worn to go with a casual outfit. Some casual necklaces are either bought from certain stores, and some even are made by others in a do-it-yourself (DIY) manner. Some necklaces are even kind of hand-me-downs. Imagine having a vintage style necklace as part of your wardrobe. Some people into upcycling and other eco-friendly fashion practices simply make some of their own repurposed or guilt-free necklaces. These more casual and inexpensive necklace can be quite personal in one's style.

Fancier necklaces capture the appeal and the personality of its wearer. A considerate gentleman would love to woo a lady with a charming necklace. (I can already sense my female audience nudging their boyfriend/fiancé/husband as I mention men and necklaces.) :D Anyhow... there is nothing like a fabulous necklace for females. There are many kinds of fancy and dressy necklaces. A simple pearl necklace has its own appeal and charm. Even more so are necklaces that are layered or have any number of fabulous gems and metals to make it. Fancier necklaces help make a woman feel more confident and dazzling as she walks about. They add extra class and style to a classy woman.

When worn with any sort of outfit, a necklace adds some great attention to you and adds to your appeal and charm. Casual necklaces offer a nice touch to a casual outfit. More fancy necklaces exude class and elegance while also expressing one's beauty. No matter what, it is undeniable how much charm a necklace can provide in both the necklace itself and to one's style.

--- Necklaces: Final Thoughts ---

No matter what kind of necklace interests you, at least you know you have something stylish and fashionable when you wear a necklace. Adding one or multiple necklaces will instantly provide some appeal to your outfits. You will more commonly see females sporting necklaces more than males. However, even males can enjoy the sort of appeal and charm that necklaces provide. No matter how you wear your necklaces, wear them proudly! One can almost never go wrong with a necklace... unless it it something horridly ugly, of course.

Who doesn't love a great necklace? I think necklaces, more than any other piece of jewelry, can really set the mood for an outfit. I love the chain necklace you featured. Chain necklaces look great with office and edgy looks - a hard feat for one necklace to pull off! :-)

Thanks for including a couple of my posts!


John Marine said...

Ah, totally in love with those mint baubles and the gold flowers! What lovely picks (: I also totally laughed at that text in italics and blue. So funny! I noticed one of my links here as well--I admire your such thorough posts so much! It must be rather difficult to compile so many looks from various styles. Props to you!

I literally have been on the hunt for the best rhinestone statement pieces, no joke. Love the shopsense choices, shopping! I use them too, but how do you get rid of the scroll bar, mine is staying on, I wonder if it is because of the size of the box the items are in... i will have to figure that out. Thank you so much for featuring my blog, love a chunky necklace!

Hi John! I adore your necklace picks especially the ones with the teal rhinestones. They're very elegant and pretty, yet there is something quite playful about them. I love wearing necklaces but I have a hard time finding ones that fit just right. A pretty necklace can really elevate an outfit. Thanks for the inspirations. Love this post!

I like how much time you put into each of your posts, you do research and really delve into your topics. All these are great necklace choices!
