From dainty pendants and sentimental lockets to trendy chokers and bold strands of chunky beads, necklaces are among the most well-loved accessories in any wardrobe. They’re also the most versatile, capable of adding color and sparkle to transform even the simplest outfit. When styling with necklaces, go beyond a straightforward strand with these three creative ways to wear the staples of your jewelry collection. You may find yourself revisiting long-forgotten pieces from past seasons, or looking at your most frequently worn necklaces in a brand-new light.
Backward necklaces have long been a red carpet favorite, but they’re a quirky way to accessorize everyday outfits, too. This look is especially striking with open back tops and dresses, which allow the necklace to take center stage. A reversed necklace works best when it doesn’t have an unsightly clasp, so try out this trend with a lariat or a necklace that’s strung as a continuous loop.
With lots of turtlenecks, collars, and cowls, fall is the perfect time to try out new necklace-plus-neckline combinations. Choose a lengthy strand with a large pendant to elongate the silhouette of a turtleneck, or nestle a dainty charm among the folds of a cowl neck for a subtle glimpse of sparkle. Our personal favorite for fall—especially for an updated office look—is a collared shirt buttoned all the way up with a shorter statement necklace tucked below the collar, so you see just a peek of the strand.
