How to match your necklace to your outfits neckline

Pin It Following on from last month's post about choosing the right length of necklace (see here) this month I am going to help you to choose the right style of necklace to go with the neckline of your outfit.

Choosing the right necklace to go with your outfit can be a nightmare, I've often spent longer trying to decide on the right accessories than I have picking my outfit and often ended up wearing no jewellery because I couldn't decide what to wear to complement the outfit, nothing looked right!!  Then I found this picture which helped to uncover the secrets!!!

  1. Turtleneck - Looks best with longer chain style necklaces.
  2. Crew Collar or bib necklaces look great.
  3. Scoop They look best with broader necklaces with layers and volume.
  4. Strapless A short choker necklace looks best.
  5. Square - Go for a angular pendant with this neckline.
  6. Off Shoulder You have full creativity to go here. But the larger the necklace the better.
  7. HalterneckA slim triangular neck piece with a pointy end.
  8. V NeckWear a necklace in a similar triangular V- shape that ends just above the neckline.
  9. Collar Go for a short round pendant or a choker.
  10. Boat NeckGo for several long strands of beads.
  11. Cowl No necklace, go for big feature earrings instead.
  12. Sweetheart A wide round necklace which covers the bare skin looks best.
Just remember that the higher the neckline the longer the necklace should be.  If the neckline is low then go for a shorter and rounder necklace.  Follow these tips and you'll never go wrong again!!

If your outfit has bold prints try looking for detail in your necklace that matches the pattern or design of your outfit.
