How to Choose the Right Necklace for Your Neckline

TrueFacet Holiday Shops Sale

Necklaces can be a great way to add a stylish finishing touch to any outfit. But with so many different styles, lengths, and materials to choose from, it can take time to decide which necklace is the best fit for you. 

The right necklace can take a casual look and turn it into something special, while the wrong necklace can make a beautiful outfit look dull and lifeless. So, which is the best necklace to choose? Well, the first step is to consider your neckline.

Different necklines flatter different necklace styles, so you’ll need to choose your necklace based on which type of neckline you’re wearing. This article will provide tips on different styles of necklaces, how to choose the necklace length, and how you can exhibit them with different outfits.

Types of Necklines

V-Neck Tops 

V-shaped tops are the perfect setting for long, delicate necklaces. A single strand of pearls or a statement pendant necklace is both great choices for this style. Ideally, the necklace should hang above the V of your neckline to create a beautiful finished look.

If your top has a deep V, go with a longer chain to fill up the space without removing your neckline’s beauty.

Low-Cut and Plunging Necklines

Low-cut and plunging necklines are often best complemented by a statement choker or collar. A thick choker necklace can create a unique, eye-catching look without detracting from the neckline.

You can also wear layered necklaces in different lengths. This will fill up the open space without overpowering it, creating that perfect balance between showing off your décolletage and staying classy.

Halter or One-Shoulder

Halter or one-shoulder tops are perfect for wearing layered necklaces. You can stack thin chains of different lengths or try some beaded or pendant necklaces. This creates a fun, eclectic look that’s perfect for any occasion. 

For a more subtle look, go with a single statement necklace. A bold pendant will draw attention to your neckline without detracting from its beauty.

Turtleneck or High Crew

A turtleneck or high crew top is perfect for wearing statement pieces like chunky chains or collars, as they will stand out against the tightness of the fabric. This is because it gives those outfits a bold statement piece and complements the style of the more conservative neckline.

If you’re looking for a more delicate look, try wearing a thin chain or lariat. The loose, draping effect of the necklace will add a bit of softness to your outfit.


Strapless or Boatneck Tops

Strapless and boatneck tops can be tricky to accessorize, but a beautiful necklace is a perfect way to complete the look. Go for a bold, eye-catching statement piece that will draw attention to your neckline without being too overwhelming. 

Alternatively, you can wear a long pendant necklace to create an airy, delicate look. This will add just the right detail to the neckline and provide an elegant finishing touch.
