PAIRING NECKLACES WITH NECKLINES
One of the best ways to accessorize your outfit is by choosing the right necklace to complement your neckline. It can be a delicate chain with a pendant, a statement piece, or something in between. But how do you know which necklace works best with each neckline? We’ve got you covered with this quick and easy guide on how to pair necklaces with necklines.
WHAT NECKLACE TO WEAR WITH WHAT NECKLINE:
If you have a round neckline, such as a crew neck or scoop neck, make sure your necklace is also round. V-shaped necklaces and those with pointed pendants are the worst choices for this neckline, as they can disorient the eyes instead of creating a focal point.
A crew neck shortens the neck and gives the illusion of a fuller chest. This neckline looks great with short necklace lengths, such as a choker or collar style. You can also use a short necklace style to create a collar on a crew neck. Riviere-style necklaces make for excellent shimmering collars.
Longer necklaces also look great with this neckline style. However, if you have a low scoop neck, your necklace should not fall below where the neckline hits.
A halter neckline wraps around the back of your neck, secured by ties, so it emphasizes your shoulders and collarbone. To avoid disrupting the natural shape of a halter, choose a necklace that hangs down in the front. A v-shaped necklace or a Y-shaped necklace is an excellent option because it mirrors the shape of the neckline.
If you're wearing a turtleneck, choose a rope-style necklace that falls many inches below the collarbone and will draw the eye downward and away from the neckline to avoid looking too cluttered. This neckline usually pairs perfectly with layered necklaces and long pendant necklace styles.
A square neckline contrasts with the body's natural curves and creates a more angular look, so a square neckline necklace should also have angular edges to build cohesiveness.
Ideally, your necklace choice should have square or rectangular pendants because they echo the shape of a square neckline. Avoid any necklace lengths that fall past the neckline point, as this can make you appear shorter.
