3 long necklaces for summer 2015
If there’s one piece of jewelry that is universally flattering, it’s a long necklace. The length is elongating and thinning, drawing the eyes down away from the neck. Luckily, long necklaces are trendy right now, too, for people of all ages and styles.
Here are three long necklaces for the summer of 2015.
Sleek, simple and layered.
A great way to wear your long necklaces is to layer them. Look for a set that complements each other, like this geometric gold necklace trio. The shop describes it as, “earthy and glam all at once.” The subtle, neutral shades make it match just about anything, and geometric shapes are one of the trendiest patterns for 2015.

A sophisticated charm necklace.
Who doesn’t love charm bracelets? This super long necklace reminds us of a charm necklace, with decorative charms interspersed along the length. At 42 inches long, Tory Burch’s Evie Extra Long Station Necklace is long enough to wrap around twice or let hang in full dramatic glory. The large pearls add an air of class and sophistication, so you can wear this out for fine dining or even to work, yet it’s quirky and cute — something different.

Tribal and chunky.
For an edgier spin on the long necklace, we love the look of a thin chain adorned by a single chunky medallion. The House of Harlow Tribal Locket Necklace does this perfectly.
A single color — all silver — with a large locket like you’ve never seen before, with tribal engraved patterns. The locket itself is classic, but the zig-zag design makes it interesting and worldly. The 28 inch chain could even be swapped out for a longer one, to make bigger impact. The House of Harlow Tribal Locket Necklace, $75 (plus 3% Cash Back), Macys.com
