Choosing the right jewellery to complement your outfit can sometimes be difficult, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. When choosing a necklace, the size of the pendant is an important decision. Thin necklaces with small pendants can help make a statement or simply tie a look together. 

Additionally, it’s important to consider your style before choosing a specific necklace. If you have a minimalistic style, you won’t need a flashy or colourful necklace.

With the above guide, you’ll easily choose a necklace that fits your personal style. However, if you’re not sure about your style or you’re not used to wearing jewellery often, you may want to pay attention to how you dress. 

Some necklaces are suitable for any specific dressing code, while others can be worn with any dressing. For instance, if you tend to wear more formally, you may choose formal jewellery and on the other hand, if you prefer wearing colourful and electric clothes, then you may choose a unique small pendant necklace.
