Necklaces can make or break your outfit. When worn correctly, they’ll help you achieve a look that is pulled together and memorable. Avoid the common fashion missteps that occur when you pair the wrong necklaces with the right necklines. Take these tips from our experts and get ready to conquer the upcoming fall season with necklaces that will flatter your figure.
V-Neck – This style of neckline already draws the eye to a certain focal point. By adding simple pendant necklaces to tops that have sharp lines, you’ll be balancing the look perfectly.
Boat neck – This cut can be tricky when trying to choose jewelry. You can always go for a pair of great dangly earrings, but long pendant necklaces work well too. Be sure to choose something that is longer than the neckline.
Open collar – With an open neckline, you have a little bit more freedom to do something fun and fashion forward. As this is the season of statement necklaces, take advantage of the trend and grab one to dress up a plain white button down shirt. A bright burst of color can take this basic from good to great. Gold and sterling silver tone necklaces are a good choice for the office. Look for necklaces with longer chains or multiple strands.
Strapless – Necklaces that are close to the collarbone work well with strapless dresses or tops. Wear something with sparkle to grab attention at night, or try a beaded number during the day. Choker or statement necklaces work well.
Turtlenecks – During those fall and winter months, sweaters and turtlenecks reign supreme. Try necklaces that are long and colorful to brighten up outfits that are conservative and classic.
Square – Short or mid length pendant necklaces help you to balance out a square neck. When choosing between necklaces, opt for chains that are significantly shorter or longer than the neckline.
