It doesn’t matter if you prefer a skinny silk scarf or a chunky choker—just make sure something is around your neck this fall to add a little extra oomph to everything from button-down blouses to cocktail dresses.
As fashion for the petite, how should we copy this fall fashion without making your neck look cut-off?
- The key is to go with something slender and avoid chunky pieces.
- We also suggest soft and delicate materials such as lace or pearl, as they add to your femininity.
- Adapt to the occasion. Chokers are very versatile, and with the right material, you can wear them to any occasion from office to cocktail parties.
For a streamlined look you can wear to work, stick with thin and delicate silhouettes. For a layered look, wear the tightest piece high on your neck, allowing the other complementing jewelry to drape effortlessly below.
If velvet and lace aren’t for you, try a gunmetal choker encrusted with pave crystal. Layer a subtler necklace underneath. Look for an option in a contrasting color to ensure the combo isn’t too harsh.
