Below is our quick guide to match your necklace with your neckline. An easy rule of thumb is to contrast with the openness of the neck. The more open the neckline go with a smaller and shorter necklace, the less open the longer or more bold you can go, and let that sit over the higher neckline.
Crew necks – these are best with shorter style necklaces such as ‘collar’ or bib styles
V neck – choose a necklace that matches the shape of the V
Collared shirt (button down) – there isn’t much space longer and wider styles, so a choker style works if you have a long neck, if not a slimmer pendant on a short chain that sits above the last open button. Alternatively go for statement earrings.
Boat neck – this style works best with a long string of beads or multiple strings
Turtle necks – this style works best with longer necklaces strands
Scoop necks – fill in the space with multiple strands of beads or larger scale pendants
Strapless – look great with chokers or short pendants
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.
Cowl neck – this neckline is already quite busy either choose a short and small pendant or a pair of statement earrings instead of a necklace.
Square necks – look for pendants with an angular finish so as not to clash with the angle of the neckline
