Wearing monogram jewellery is a unique way of showing your personality and who you are through your jewellery. Personally, I am all in favour of wearing a monogram necklace; it’s fun, interesting, and they aren’t something that you see everyone wearing. Recently brought back into popularity by celebrities such as Taylor Swift and Reese Witherspoon, the monogram necklace is an easy, personalized jewellery option that can be worn by any age group. In fact, you can wear a monogram necklace anywhere (grocery shopping, to a club) and it still looks great!
How to Choose Monogram Jewellery
A monogram necklace, like any other piece of jewellery, should be chosen because it suits your skin tone and your body. Even if you absolutely love the piece, you should make sure that it goes well with your skin tone, your body shape and what you usually wear. Check your skin tone, if your skin looks better with gold, then you probably have a gold skin tone and likewise, with silver. Choose a monogram necklace to match. If you aren’t certain what skin tone you have, look at yourself in the mirror; lighter eyes and pale skin are usually a silver tone while darker or reddish skin is normally gold. I recommend that you pay attention to this stage because choosing your necklace to match your skin tone will mean the difference between a drab necklace and one that complements you. Second, what kind of outfits do you usually wear? Now check the shape of your head. If you have an oval face, nearly anything will suit you. However; if you have a round or square face, you should avoid jewellery that accentuates the shape. Usually, this isn’t really a problem with monogram necklaces, but you should check just to be sure. If you normally wear basic clothing, then you can opt for a bold, statement piece that will rock your whole outfit. If you usually dress up, try going for something smaller so that you don’t call quite as much attention to the necklace and still leave room for the outfit as a whole. Next, choose the initials or name on your necklace; you can choose your name, your children’s name, boyfriends, husbands or even best friends name. It’s all up to you!
How Not To Wear Monogram Jewellery
While monogram necklaces are fashionable and show your personality, it can be very easy to go over the top with them. For example, they are very flashy and tend to attract a lot of attention. If you are planning to wear a monogram necklace, there are a few mistakes you will want to avoid. Large chunky jewellery worn with your monogram necklace can appear tasteless if you aren’t careful. Another consideration is that heavily applied makeup will definitely not give you the look you are going for. Avoid pairing your necklace with chunky fashions, daring low cuts or anything that shows off too much skin. The idea is to look for a tasteful outfit that gently accentuates the neckline while not being revealing because the monogram necklace is already attracting attention.
I personally love monogram necklaces because they are a great day-to-night piece. They can be worn with a cardigan and pencil skirt to go to work and then dressed up with a little black dress for a night on the town. Remember, monogram necklaces can be extremely cute and even classy, or they can be sexy depending on what you wear. Try balancing out your outfit and your makeup to match your jewellery and get the exact look that you want.
