V-neck, halter, one-shoulder, oh my. It can be tough enough choosing a neckline let alone trying to find the right necklace to go with it. After all, the reason to add accessories to our outfits is to be able to show our creativity, personality and signature style. Why exactly do some necklaces not work with some clothes, or look better with others? Well, there is some logic to it, and that is because different necklaces work with different necklines. Here’s a guide to pairing necklines and necklaces.
Here is a guide from Pinterest to help you pair your jewellery like a pro.
These are probably the trickiest necklines to wear necklaces with, but they can work well with mid-length, chunkier necklaces.
These are such flattering necklines that deserve the right accessories. V-necks look sensations with V-shaped necklaces that enhance the shape and draw attention downwards.
These necklines are great for showing off a slender neck and creating an attractive décolletage. So, style them right with a choker necklace that is simple in design to enhance the neck area. Be sure to check the sterling silver jewellery at Silver by Mail.
These necklines are best worn with collar or bib necklaces. They come in a wide range of colours and shapes and your possibilities are truly endless.
Strapless tops look great when paired with chokers. You can really experiment with these in terms of colours and materials and you are guaranteed that they will show off your shoulders and neck while bringing the entire look together.
Scoop necks can be incredibly flattering when you pair them with either long or short necklaces. However, the necklace should not fall below the bustline.
If you love square neck tops, pick a necklace with angular pendants for a sophisticated look. Also, short necklaces that fall on the collarbone work well.
Off-Shoulders / One-Shoulder
Dresses that fall off the shoulders look good paired with asymmetric necklaces. A stone-studded necklace is a great piece if you’re off to a party and longer chains with bigger pendants look good, too.
You don’t really need a necklace with a cowl neck as there’s already enough going on in the neck area. If your cowl neck is low, you could wear a sing strand necklace, though, or a small pendant.
Boat neck outfits pair well with long beaded necklaces in western or ethnic styles. They can be either single stranded or multi-stranded and offer the outfit true glamour and poise.
If you’re wearing a dress with a sweetheart neckline, no doubt you’re going to look amazing, but what necklace can you pair with your dress? Ideally, pendants or carved beads that end just above the neckline are the way to go, just be careful not to overlap the neckline of the dress.
Collar tops and shirts are staples in a working lady’s wardrobe, which means you need accessories! To add some glamour to these tops, pick short pendants or even a choker style necklace.
There you have it! Now that you know the secret to neckline and necklace pairings, it’s time to accessories your wardrobe.
