How to Choose Necklaces to Work with Your Neckline
- Turtle necks – best with longer necklaces
- Crew necks – best with short necklaces such as necklace ‘collar’ or bib styles
- Scoop necks – fill in the space with multiple strands of beads or larger scale pendants
- Strapless – look great with chokers or short pendants, leaving your lovely decolletage bare
- Square necks – look for pendants with an angular finish to harmonize with the angular neckline
- Asymmetric necklines – look for necklaces that aren’t symmetrical, instead a necklace that has it’s own asymmetry can work, alternatively a long string of different sized and shaped beads can work well.
- Halter necks – these create a narrow V neck – so look for a narrow pendant with a sharper end
- V neck – ideally a necklace that matches the shape of the V – depending if it’s a wider or narrower V neck.
- Collared shirt (button down) – there isn’t much space for anything too wide, so a choker style works if you have a long neck, if not a slimmer pendant that sits above the last open button.
- Boat neck – a long string or two of beads is ideal for this neckline.
- Cowl neck – this neckline is already detailed and has volume, so either a short and small pendant or a pair of feature earrings instead of a necklace.
- Sweetheart – a curved necklace that has width that will balance the open decolletage of this neckline.
