Has it crossed your mind why some necklaces do not go well with some clothes, while they look exquisite with some others? Have you ever bought a gorgeous necklace, and then never wore it because it always looked odd with the clothes you have? Maybe there is some logic to all this after all. Yes, there are some guidelines to follow as to which necklace should be worn with which neckline.
So ladies, read on to choose the right necklaces for the outfit you are wearing.
Turtlenecks are tricky necklines to dress up with necklaces. When winters are here, they sure keep you warm though. That does not mean you compromise on the style quotient. They look the best with mid-length necklaces with heavy work.
Halter-necks show off your slender neck to make your décolletage look more attractive. Make sure you get styling them right. You can wear a choker necklace if it is a high-neck halter top/blouse. Wearing necklaces with no-fuss designs will enhance your neck area.
V-necks are one of the most flattering necklines for a woman. Wearing them in the right colour along with proper accessories can do wonders to your look. They look the best with V-shaped necklaces that enhance the V-shape and take attention downwards.
Crew neck outfits are best worn with bib or collar necklaces. They come in all shapes and colours now. The possibilities are endless, and you would enjoy experimenting with the colours.
Scoop necks are very flattering when paired with short as well as long necklaces. Just make sure the length of the necklace does not hit below your bust line. The latest trend in this is the ones in silver and stones.
The strapless outfits look their best when paired with choker kind of necklaces. You can experiment with the material and colour as per your outfit. This will show off your neck and shoulder, and still make you look put-together.
While wearing a square neck outfit, necklaces with angular pendants will look best. This will give it a sophisticated and elegant look. We have seen that shorter necklaces, which fall right on your collarbone also look very good with these necklines.
Off-shoulder dresses look the best when paired with asymmetric necklaces. You can go for a stone-studded necklace for a party, or keep it light with quirky designs for the mornings. Long chains with larger pendants also look very good with these dresses, if the length is midi or maxi. Take care not to overcrowd you neck area as you are enhancing that part.

Long beaded necklaces look terrific with boat neck outfits, be it ethnic or western. These can be multi-stranded, or single stranded. These give the outfit the necessary poise and glamour.
Cowl necks are better not having any necklace to go with it- there is already much going on near the neck area. If the cowl neck is low, then you can wear a slick multi-stranded or single strand necklace. You can also try a small pendant that will make the outfit look simple and elegant.
Dresses with sweetheart necklines are one of the most flattering dresses a woman can have. Wondering which necklaces go along with them? Well, we think you should try carved beads or pendants that end right above your neckline. Take care that they do not overlap with the neckline of your dress/top.
Collar shirts and tops are usually the staples in a working woman’s wardrobe. Does that mean she will have to skip her accessorising? Well, certainly not! To look your best while wearing these outfits, opt for a short pendant. If you are feeling rather adventurous, go for a choker style necklace.
