How To Pick The Right Necklace For Your Neckline

Posted on September 21 2015

Jewellery can make or break an outfit. Get it wrong and you could end up looking like Pat Butcher from Eastenders (no offence Pat). But if you get it right you can transform a Primark dress into looking like Chanel. It is therefore very important to pair your necklaces correctly to the neckline of your dress or top. Here is a handy guide to know when to sass it up with a sparkly choker and when to go minimal with a cute pendant.


Pairing jewellery with a turtleneck does run the risk of looking slightly matronly so therefore a longer chunky chain or pendant works best.

V Neck

Choose a necklace with a central focus to draw attention away from the shoulders and help elongate the neck, smaller dainty necklaces work particularly well.

Boat Neck

This is a wide neckline and therefore is best paired with a longer necklace or multiple strand style.

Collared neck

Two styles work with this look. Either a small pendant that is just seen or a statement piece worn over the shirt buttoned up.

Halter Neck

If the halter covers your chest then go for an ornate collar necklace. However if it is a V-neck halter then opt for a longer pendant style.


Choose a choker or small pendant so your décolletage is still the main feature.

Crew Necks

This works best with a statement round or a ‘bib’ style necklace.

Sweetheart Necks

Opt for a curved necklace with width - it will balance out the open neckline.

So this means if you have a turtleneck but no long pendants then you DEFINITELY have to go and buy one, otherwise you’d be breaking the fashion rules. No-one wants that so a new dress it is. What a shame, eh?
