Packing Jewelry For Your Summer Vacation
You have planned a summer vacation and you think all you need are shorts, earrings, sandals, sunhat and a bathing suit. But have you thought about what jewelry to pack? Not your fine jewelry, like your gold and diamonds, but the necklaces and bracelets that complete your outfit and have you looking, one might say, together. We offer you an easy-to-follow method for choosing necklaces for necklines.
You will be going out to dinner and chances are you will put on a maxi dress, sundress or capris, and a tee. And don’t forget the shrug, shawl or jacket as air conditioning can get things chilly. You don’t really need a lot of choices in jewelry, but you do need at least one necklace you love wearing. I am reminded of a customer who sent me a testimonial a few summers ago, “The only necklace I took with me on vacation was the turquoise sea glass you made.” You might recognize Kelly Paull as she is an expert coach in MLM and the CEO of Directly Successful.
What to Pack
Although tempted you should pack lightly with combinations you can mix and match, especially if flying. Firstly, lay out about 4 outfits you plan on wearing when not in beach attire. I know I would take my favorite sundress or maxi and usually a pair of white and a black pair of slacks or ankle pants. Then I would select tops. The neckline of the top can help determine the right necklace, so explore this visual neckline jewelry guide we created for you using our handmade designs as examples as a way to choose the right necklace for your neckline.
Choosing Necklaces for Necklines Guide:
Scoop neck: Fill the open space with a multi-strand beaded necklace or even a large statement piece like “Khaleesi”: This handcrafted dramatic piece features gorgeous semi-precious amethyst paired with crystal and designer Czech glass daggers. Full length is 18″. It’s a dynamic piece with a funky art deco/fantasy vibe that will add that “wow” factor to both casual and dressy ensembles.
Strapless: Choose a short necklace or a choker to maintain the open allure of your strapless top. “Fawn Matrix” is an 18″ mixed metallics braided necklace that can be worn with gold or silver so it’s very versatile. It’s freshwater pearls, Swarovski crystals and Czech glass will add sparkle to any outfit.
Asymmetric or square neck: Choose a necklace with its own asymmetry. Consider a long necklace with different sized and shaped beads: “High Society” is a 23″ long red lariat necklace and composed of lemon, ruby and cherry quartz, onyx, rhodonite, garnet, cloisonne hearts, Czech glass and Swarovski crystal with gold toned accents. The colors are reminiscent of a flower garden – perfect for a summer night.
Boat neck: Choose a long necklace that can be doubled, knotted or adjusted into layers.
Only want to take 1 necklace away with you but know you want it to look different each time you wear it? The 6′ rope has 3 distinct patterns using different beads and harmonious colors and is the answer to that problem. It can be customized and is currently available in teal, “Refresh” and black/gold/silver. This effortless accessory has a discrete clasp so you can wrap it up to 4 times and wear it in a myriad of ways.
V- neck: Choose one that matches the shape of the V like this beautiful “Cat’s Eye Art Glass and Tassel” necklace. Don some chic mystique with this necklace of crackle agate and splendid lampwork glass pendant in olive and teal with Vintage chain tassel. Imagine light reflecting thru the beautiful shade of teal green.
And don’t forget to take that wrap bracelet that can double as a necklace.
