Necklaces for necklines: How to wear a statement necklace
Accessories often make or break an outfit and should complement what you are wearing. Necklaces are accessories we tend to wear when we find our clothes too plain or boring as it may seem.
But do you know how to choose the proper necklace that best suits your outfit? If not, here are some tips to choose the right necklace and we’ll based t according to the neckline of your outfit.
Different necklines look better with certain necklace styles.
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 décolletage 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 its own asymmetry can work, and 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 décolletages of this neckline.
Now you know what type to wear, never wear the wrong necklace for neckline again!
