Choosing Necklaces for Necklines

Different necklines look better with certain necklace styles. Here are some tips for you to match your necklaces to the ideal necklines and help you improve your appearance and personality.
Turtle Necks 
Best with longer necklaces. 
Crew Necks
Best with short necklaces such as necklace ‘collar’ or bib style.
Scoop Necks
Fill in the space with multiple strands of beads or larger scale pendants.
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.
A curved necklace that has width that will balance the open decolletage of this neckline.
