One of the first things I learned as a personal stylist was how to balance the length of my face to my jewelry (called a balance point). Some people know this instinctively but if you aren't sure, try this easy method. You'll have the hang of it in no time!
You will need:
A piece of string.
* Measure the length of your face from hairline to chin, or from bangs to chin if you wear bangs.
* Cut the string to length.
* Let the string fall from the bottom of your chin to your chest. Where it ends is your balance point, unique to you!
*If you enjoy layering your necklaces, place the string at your first balance point and let if fall again to find that next sweet spot.
Other necklace tips:
* Accentuate your bustline with a length that falls at or just above the bust.
* Fill out thinner frames with necklaces that wrap around the neck more than once, or layer necklaces (i.e. an omega with a longer necklace).
* Taller frames or those with long torsos look better with longer necklaces, where petite frames need shorter lengths for balance.
* Frame a heart-shaped face with a choker.
* Elongate a round face with a longer necklace to draw the eye downward.
*Add a clasp to extend the length of a too-short necklace.
Experiment and have fun!!
