Two popular costume necklace design elements: Floral Style and Geometric Pattern

Colorful Irregular Geometries Combined Beading Costume Necklace

Necklaces are often regarded as the best way for a woman to adorn themselves. They don’t hide behind hair like earrings do, they aren’t restricted to a hidden place like rings are, they are front and centered and usually work as the centerpiece of an entire collection. That’s why choosing the right necklace is very important, because your style and fashion sense is likely to be judged by it alone.

Therefore, it won’t do to choose any plain necklace and then match it with you dress, your necklace and your dress have to work together (along with the rest of your ensemble) to create a fashionable and trendy appearance. There are various necklace patterns that work with various dresses but two of the most popular are the floral style and the geometric style which will likely never fail you and works best with a number of dress and styles.

Plain dresses are easy to accessories for as you can wear plain or simple necklaces with them. However, patterned dresses are not that easy to accessorize for because not every necklace goes with the given pattern and some of them can even clash quite badly. Floral print dresses, for example, have been making a comeback after decades of being considered too girly for modern women. However, this leaves the problem of what to wear with them and this is where floral pattern necklaces come in. For obvious reason, floral pattern necklaces work really well with floral print dresses and create an overall delicate and feminine impression.

The size of the floral print also has to be remembered as large prints often clash with smaller floral patterns. Try to match the floral pattern with the print you’re wearing. If you get a pattern in the same style as the print you’re wearing. That is excellent but don’t try to match too much as it can often result in the necklace blending in with the dress which ruins the overall image.

Dresses which have lines or shapes as print will probably work the best with geometric pattern necklaces. This is especially recommended for otherwise stockier women and gives their overall look more sophistication and elegance. Geometric pattern necklaces work well with square shaped earrings and studs. Similarly floral pattern necklaces work well with hoops and long earrings. They can also be matched with a long scarf to be wound around the neck (in a complementary color) which will also help make the necklace stand out.

Floral pattern necklaces can also be paired off with a set of earrings which may have a feather hanging from it to add the traditional or even native look. They also work very well with dresses. Geometric pattern necklaces work the best with casual wear- like and jeans and shirts- but they can also work well with slim, party like dresses which are figure hugging. Floral print dresses are freer flowing.

Therefore, both floral pattern and geometric pattern necklaces are extremely popular types of necklaces which represent their own stylistic choices and go well with many types of clothes.
