The Right Necklace for Different Necklines

Picture this scene: you’re getting ready to head out the door, you’re in your favorite outfit, your hair is having one of those rare beautiful days, and your make-up is accentuating your features… but there’s something not quite right. We know you’ve put on your jewelry because as we know, not accessorizing means losing money, but maybe that top and that necklace just don’t go together.

We’re here to help – we’ve rounded up the most popular necklines and which necklaces work best with each. Take a look and see what you think!

Collar7Crewneck

Have fun with this neckline and mix different shapes and sizes. Unless your top is super busy, you can go bold with a multi-layer necklace.

 

Collar4Boatneck

Get the best of both worlds: stay above the neckline with a choker or go long with a chain or beaded necklace.

 

Collar9V-Neck

Since the V creates a nice frame, your necklace should essentially fill the empty space. Depending on your blouse, you can go for a simple and delicate necklace or a bold and chunky V shaped piece.

 

Collar3Square

To mimic the sharp lines of a square neckline, pair it with an angular pendant.

 

Collar1Sweetheart

Similar to the scoop, this lady-like neckline pairs best with pendants or carved beads.

 

The skinny: Try not to let your necklace compete with your blouse and ensure your necklace doesn’t touch the top of your collar. If it does, re-adjust so the necklace is either higher or lower to achieve outfit success rather than a confusing outfit.

We’d love to hear from you! Are there any other necklines you need help figuring out?
