What will you wear your necklace with?
Type of neckline
What type of neckline will you wear it with? Collar, round, V-neck, boat neck? Longer women's necklaces tend to go best with collarless tops. Standard crew neck tops don't always fit 16 inch necklaces with pendants, as these tend to slip over and under the shirt collar, so it's best to measure yourself. Bateau neck tops look great with shorter necklaces, which stay above the neckline of the top.
Will you wear the necklace over or under your top? The answer to this question affects not only the length, but also the style of the necklace. It's easy to wear a thinner chain or pendant (eg a small cross) under a top, while a thick pendant (eg a large crystal) would look like a bulging outline under your top . If you want to wear a pendant necklace over your top, you also need to know if the length of the pendant will keep it on top or if it will reach the neckline causing it to randomly go over and over. below your top.
