How to Wear A Bib Necklace
For the best look you want your necklace to hang above the breastbone and below the collarbone – longer bib necklaces can oftentimes be hard to style.
The nice thing about the bib necklaces is its versatility. It can be worn with almost any outfit and at almost any occasion. However, there are a few general rules to keep in mind when styling this piece of jewelry.
1) Because most bib necklaces are usually busy looking, they are meant to be statement pieces. So if you don’t want to commit a fashion faux pas, it’s best to simplify the rest of your clothing/accessories and keep the necklace as the focal point of your outfit.
2) When it comes to the type of blouse style to pair with the necklace – you have many options! For one, it can be paired with a low or high collared neckline. It also can be worn with many different prints (e.g., stripes or soft florals). However, most people find the bib necklace to be combined best with a solid high collared shirt.
3) This necklace can be paired with both formal and casual outfits. For example, if you want to wear a LBD – add a bib necklace to instantly spruce up your outfit. However, if you’re more of a jeans and t-shirt kind of gal, pair your solid tee with a pop of color around the neck to make your outfit effortlessly chic.

4) Tip: bib necklaces can be made from almost any materials. However, with the summertime heat on the way, we recommend you invest in a lighter weight bib necklace (e.g., lace or tulle fabric) that way you can stay stylish, regardless of the weather.
