Choose the Right Necklace

Accessories can make or break an outfit. One of my favorite accessories is the statement necklace. However, necklines of tops come in so many different styles, and it can be different to decide on which necklace to pair with which top. There are V-neck, halter, one-shoulder, scoop, and sweetheart necklines just to mention a few of them. It can be tough enough choosing a neckline let alone trying to find the right necklace to go with it. If you are bewildered, I am here to help you choose the necklace that works with whatever neckline you are wearing. Just use the guide below.


Turtle Necks – Look best with longer necklaces
Crew Necks – Look best with short necklaces or bib styles
Scoop Necks – Look best if you fill in the space with multiple strands of beads or larger pendants
Strapless – Look great with chokers, leaving your lovely decolletage bare
Square Necks – Look best with pendants with an angular finish to harmonize with the angular neckline
Asymmetric Necklines – Look best with necklaces that are not 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 – Look best with a narrow pendant with a sharper end, since the V tends to be narrow.
V Neck – Ideally a necklace that matches the shape of the V-neck
Collared Shirt – Look best with a choker style or the pendant, should hit right above the last open button.
Boat Neck – Look best with a long string or two of beads.
Cowl Neck – This neckline is already detailed, so either a short and small pendant or a pair of feature earrings instead of a necklace.
Sweetheart – Looks best with a curved necklace that has width that will balance the open decolletage of this neckline.
