Which necklace to wear with which neckline?

Collar for crew necks


NecklinesCrewneck are very versatile when it comes to necklaces. The trick is to play with the length rather than the style of the necklace. Thenecklace should be just longer than the neckline or just shorter. A pretty short chain with a delicate pendant will look chic with a crew neck. VYou can wear your favorite pendant slightly longer than the neckline. This combination is particularly elegant with small pendants or medallions.

With crewnecks, it is better to avoidchoker or very long necklaces, and we also recommend that you keep your necklaces symmetrical. If you want to introduce a stronger point of difference, we suggest you overlap two or three pendants like this to create a detailed and asymmetrical look.

V-neck collars


Most women own a necklace that is suitable for a V-neck because they pair well with necklaces that mimic their shape and naturally fall in a V-shape. The pendant should not be too large or too small so that the space around your necklace and neckline is proportionate. Pendants should sweep gracefully along the neckline without falling into or over the neckline, and shouldn't be too short, either. A good rule of thumb is that the collar and neckline must have 2cm space between them.

With V-necks, you will need to avoid anything that is too wide or does not complement the V-shape. For example, bib necklaces look great with a button down shirt and crew necks, but since most of them have a round shape, they won't be out of place compared to a V shape. Much like the crew neck, it is best to avoid wearing asymmetrical necklaces, as the v-shape is such a key feature of the outfit that an asymmetrical collar will detract from this and make the outfit overloaded.


Boat neck collar


The boat neckline is a high neckline wide on the torso. As this is a wide neckline, it is complemented by necklaces that are longer than the neckline.  You can pair a bateau neckline with a double row of pearls for a feminine look or wear it with a slightly longer chain pendant for easy weekend wear. like this one .

The trick is that the longer necklace balances and complements the wide neckline. Avoid anything shorter than this neckline, especially necklaces, and also avoid anything that might fall into your neckline. Boat necklines are also suitable for asymmetrical necklaces such as multi-strand necklaces with beads or pendants in different sizes.


Off Shoulder Top Collar


An off-the-shoulder top can be a bandeau or a bardot top; they're both over the shoulders, but a bardot top always has sleeves. Bardots are more likely to have a straight neckline that shows off the neckline and a bandeau can have a more sculpted neckline like a sweetheart neckline. These two tops look great with short necklaces like chokers. neck that don't break the outfit and still mean your cleavage is the center of attention.

You can also wear longer necklaces with these. The mix of a summery Bardot top and a long necklace gives a real bohemian atmosphere. Pearl necklaces also look great with Bardot tops. If you're wearing a bandeau style off the top, we recommend sticking to shorter necklaces as a long necklace will look off balance with that neckline, especially a sweetheart neckline.

Collar with collared shirts

Collared shirts are probably more versatile than you think. Since you can switch up your style by wearing the buttons fully closed or leaving a few buttons undone, it's easy to create totally different looks with the right necklace.

One of our favorite ways to pair a collar with a collared shirt is to wear a bib collar. like this by- over the shirt. The color block of most shirts will highlight the collar, making the high neckline less conservative. You can also wear the open collar and turn this neckline into a V-neck, which makes it perfect for layered chains and pendants.


Necklaces for a turtleneck

When wearing a turtleneck, long necklaces look great with the high collar as they draw the eye down and lengthen the body. As a layering piece, it's easy to put a gorgeous long necklace over a turtleneck. Don't be afraid if your collar is swinging as you walk. Wear it with confidence or start with a smaller pendant if you want to avoid that. An elegant and understated chain will look beautiful on a plain turtleneck top.




Are there any necklines that you shouldn't wear a necklace with?




 It really is a personal choice as there is a necklace for every neckline, but your overall look will have more impact and look classy if you make sure to balance your other jewelry with it. For example, off-the-shoulder necklines can be difficult to pair with a necklace and can look best with a pair of trendy earrings, but don't be afraid to try on a pretty pendant and see what you look like and you feel.
