Hi everyone! This is post #1 of a series that I'll be writing on Larme Jewelry, and will be about just that: Jewelry in Larme! I'll be aiming to write about all sorts of jewelry, from necklaces, to wristwear, and much-beloved earrings. Hopefully we can learn together and discover how to best accessorize our coordinates!

One thing to constantly keep in mind, as was mentioned in the Larme Guide is that jewelry is used to enhance the overall look, without necessarily being OTT. While it should never take the spotlight, it should still be able to contribute to the outfit in a way that without it, the outfit would feel incomplete!

This post will focus on necklaces, and will examine the different sorts of necklaces* and their place in Larme sweet and girly fashion.




Choker
35 centimetres (14 in) to 41 centimetres (16 in) long and sits high on the neck. Lariats, which are necklaces without clasps, often draped multiple times around the neck, can also be worn as variations of the choker.








Chokers are common, and are worn with basically anything except high turtlenecks. They are usually made out of velvet, velour, leather, patent leather, lace, satin, silk, and ribbon. They may feature pendants, bows, pom poms, gems, buckles, cutouts. Chokers are mostly black, but various colours have been sighted, with a lack of orange (please correct me if I am wrong!).

Chokers are a great way to add a slightly darker feel to an outfit! Depending on the choker style, it can also be a great way to add a very dolly look. Black chokers, along with leather and buckles tend to lean towards the darker or more grunge look, whereas light colours, ribbons, ruffles and pom poms can add a dolly spark of innocence!



Princess Necklace & Matinee Necklace
A princess necklace is 45 centimetres (18 in) to 50 centimetres (20 in) long, longer than a choker, but shorter than a matinee. A matinee length necklace is 56 centimetres (22 in) to 58 centimetres (23 in) long - typically a single strand that rests at the top of the cleavage.






Princess and Matinee necklaces are another common piece of Larme jewelry, and tend to be a little more versatile than chokers, seeing as they come in many different styles. There doesn't seem to be a limit to what they can be worn with, and may feature pearls, simple delicate chains, statement necklaces with larme motifs, or a mix of elements. The designs may feature pendants, bows, pom poms, gems, beads, and Larme-esque text such as "Lolita", "Baby", "Honey", and others.

Princess and Matinee necklaces can instantly add classiness to an outfit! They can make a single outfit look more mature or elegant, but also have the ability to add some playfulness, especially with text-based designs!



Opera necklace & Rope Necklace
An opera necklace is 75 centimetres (30 in) to 90 centimetres (35 in) long and sits at the breastbone. A rope necklace is any necklace longer than opera length.




Opera and Rope necklaces veer towards the more uncommon side of Larme fashion. However, inspiration can be drawn from J-Fashion pieces, such as Rose Marie Seoir. While not all Rose Marie Seoir coordinates are classified as Larme, they can be helpful for examples on how to accessorize with Opera and Rope necklaces in a sweet style. They are usually worn with a collared top/dress, or over a turtleneck. They are rarely worn with scoop or crew necked t-shirts, though this has been sighted. Opera and Rope necklaces usually feature a pendant in a Larme motif, and aside from pendants, may feature bows and gems.

Opera and Rope necklaces are great at adding that extra little sparkle to make an outfit feel more individualized. All the ones that I have sighted fall on the more sweet side of Larme fashion, and to wear it with collars emphasize this sweetness and add some balance to the neckline, as the pendant falls far below it.

  4. Fabulous! I mean marvelous! It's outstandingly awesome! Thanks for sharing the designs. But may be I can't make it that perfectly. Manufactureres and experts can make it perfect only. I recently have bought a Velvet Rhinestone Choker from an online choker necklace shop and it's just awesome.
