There’s nothing quite like a good necklace to really bring out the best in an outfit; whether it’s a little black number, a sassy styled day dress, shorts and a T-shirt or even work attire. Necklaces can help to create interesting focal points and bursts of colour to even the most neutral clothing choices. They are a gorgeous classic that everyone should have in their jewellery collection.
After working for years in the fashion industry, the team at House of Alchemy know the best way to style necklaces with an outfit and that’s why we thought we’d give you a small guide on how to choose the best bohemian necklaces for your outfit.
When it comes to styling bohemian necklaces, it’s all about the necklines
We have a wide range of bohemian necklaces in Australia, and the first thing to do when you are looking for something for a particular outfit is consider the neckline that your outfit has got going on. If your necklace clashes with your neckline it could throw off the whole look of your outfit, but if you get it right - then it could take your outfit to the next level:
If you’re going with a dress without straps or a simple tube top, then we’ve always found shorter chunkier necklaces that sit tight around your neck to be the best way to go. Have a look at our Moon & Stars choker for a look at what we’re talking about.
Asymmetrical or off the shoulder looks are best accompanied by long necklaces with an interesting design, such as our Moon Charm Crescent Necklace. If you’re wearing a high-necked, collared or turtleneck piece of clothing, then something striking that draws the eyes down is the way to go, such as a large pendant like our Raw Stones and Crystal Bullet Pieces.
V-neck shirts or deep-necked dresses look great with shorter chains that match the shape of your neckline.
The Australian bohemian style is all about matching
Another great tip for choosing a Bohemian necklace is to see if they can match the shape of the patterns you have on your outfit. For example, if you’re wearing a shirt or dress with triangles on it, our Marble Silver Dipped Necklace would be a great choice.
Don't be scared of new shapes or colours in Bohemian Necklaces
You may have been led to believe that if you’re wearing an understated outfit that you should stick to a similarly neutral necklace. However, we believe that bold and punchy is exactly what basic needs and as such you shouldn’t be scared to match a colourful, chunky necklace with an everyday outfit.
The same goes the other way round; sometimes a bold outfit with overstated jewellery can be a little too much, and that’s why we think that simply, classic necklaces can really complement rather than detract from a show-stopping outfit. Give it a go and see what you think from these fun and exciting combinations.
These are just some of our tips for finding the perfect necklace for your outfit. If you’d like to know more about how to buy bohemian necklaces online, then simply reach out to us online.
