There are a lot of different necklines that probably won’t even get to all of them, but I’m going to cover some of the basic necklines and give you some guidelines and ideas of what jewelry you compare with those necklines. There’s no hard and fast rule. You can certainly do whatever feels right for you. I have seen women in Texas who artfully pile on turquoise jewelry. It’s a look that I love and I admire and I think it’s so cool. So you just have to kind of listen to your own inner style voice and do your own thing, but I’m just going to give you some guidelines to help you.
So if you’re one of those people, that’s like, huh, what do I wear with that one shoulder top? Or what do I wear that? V-neck what do I wear the button now? What do I wear with a halter
I want to start with is something like this, a v-neck line. This is also a wrap sweater. You pretty much always have this option with a neckline like this, a dainty pendant necklace, or you can do a choker necklace as well with the v-neck another option with your v-necks is a really pretty big necklace. And you can go pretty big. You can go big and bold on that.
This neckline is really tailor made for something that is quite bold and makes a statement. If you want to do layered necklaces, there’s nothing wrong with that. Especially if you want to do a long pendant. The only thing I would say is to make sure it’s long enough so that it goes past, past your V because you don’t want that happening.
So if it’s long enough, you won’t have to worry about that. You don’t want it to kind of hit right there, conflict with that V you have a lot of jewelry, necklace options with a v-neck. So again, you can do a dainty pendant. You can do a choker, you can do a big necklace that sits right here at the collarbone, or you can even do a longer pendant as long as it’s longer than you.
I wanted to tackle is the halter neckline. And that’s where you have something around the neck here. And then you have this triangle shape on the upper body. So with the halter neckline, what I usually do as a default is just to wear a pair of bold earrings.. You could even do something a bit bolder. Like these might be another option for you is a very subtle butterfly pendant necklace that falls within this framework.
Now the off shoulder or the one-shoulder top. So these are great tops to frame a beautiful, bold statement necklace. You just want be careful not to have the necklace dip into the top, or if you want to wear one that’s longer, make sure that it fully sits on the fabric.
I would lean more toward the necklace that really sits on the collarbone. Either that bib necklace, length, collarbone, necklace length, or you could do something a little higher like a choker. But if you wanted to do something a little longer, again, just make sure that it sits all the way down on the fabric.
The sort of fail safe with off shoulder. And one shoulder is just a great pair of bold earrings. So for this top, I might do something like these white raphael earrings. So again, you can do a choker. You can do a bib, you can do a longer necklace. If it sits in here, you can do a pendant necklace or the fail safe, I would say is just a great pair of bold statement earrings. And then that way, if something rides up, it’s not conflicting with your necklace. And especially with one shoulder, one shoulder is already kind of dramatic with asymmetry. So I would just do a big, bold pair of earrings versus trying to compete with that one,
Hold their neck lines with a classic
With the white button down or any button down shirt, you certainly have jewelry options. You can always, as I mentioned before, you can always wear that dainty initial pendant necklace that will go beautifully with your white button down or your button down shirt. The next option is something that sits within this area. That’s going to be again, that collarbone length necklace, probably the most versatile lengths, if you can do earrings, definitely not have a bigger earring and a necklace together with the button down.
If you want to do the earring, that’s great. I would just probably open the shirt a little bit. So it’s not like bumping into the collar. Another pretty option is just to button your shirt all the way to the top and then put your necklace on underneath the collar. I’m sure you’ve seen tops like this, that have specialty neck lines.
This is an example of a cross front neck line. They’re all different variations of this. And then they’re also tops with cutouts. So anything that like this, that has a specialty neck line, I would just avoid wearing a necklace altogether and instead opt for earrings. So you can do a really bold statement.
Earrings that match. You can do something that’s metallic and maybe a little bit more subtle, really focused on the earrings or even a bracelet with that specialty.
Talk about is the turtleneck. It’s one of my favorites in the fall winter. And I do think it’s a great option when you want to showcase some beautiful statement jewelry. So it doesn’t always have to be a black turtleneck. It can be a bright blue one, both will achieve the same effect. So regardless of what your statement piece is, whether it’s a great big pair of bold earrings or a great big babe necklace, the turtleneck really showcases it beautifully. It just really pops because you have that turtleneck. So if you have a pair of earrings, they really pop against that. Turtleneck.
If you have a big necklace, it really pops against the turtleneck. You can go back to that dainty piece. If you’d like to do that, that’s always an option. The turtleneck allows you to do a single long pendant. If you want to do that, remember that pendant necklace can relate along gate and upper body.
The only thing you can’t really do with the turtleneck is a choker for obvious reasons. It just is too much with the turtleneck itself. So this is probably as short as I would go with a turtleneck. I don’t think you want to go any shorter than that. So I hope that helps you answer that question of what necklace or what jewelry to wear with those different neck lines.
