Learning Lengths October 10 2018
Very common question I get is what necklace length to choose, especially as we near gifting season. The diagram above is a great guide but you are also going to have to consider your size versus the skinny sketch model pictured. I for example, do wear a 14" chain as a choker but am 5'3, slightly athletic build. If you are 5'7 that might be a literal choker if you can get it fastened. So, taller, thicker add an inch or so. Or grab a necklace that you like, measure it, go from that starting point on the diagram.
My favorite lengths are noted above, here's a little about that.
Everyday wear: I like 16"-18", they wear well with t-shirts and tank tops which are my wardrobe of choice. They will also work well with button downs and blouses with a moderate neckline.
Lil dressy day wear: I love my 24" compass necklace. When I don't feel like being to "standard", I slap this one on and it immediately gives a bit more style to my outfit. I add a carnelian crystal to it if I'm feeling the super hippie vibe. ;)
Goin out: If you want to immediately dress up a plain blouse, dress or other simple top a 30" necklace will make a great statement. Because all our pieces are relatively simple, it will say something without screaming. This is a great option for going out or if you dress up for work.
Hope that helps! Hit me up with questions, I am always happy to help you guys navigate your jewelry decisions!
