How to Pick the Perfect Necklace for your Outfits Neckline

Ever wondered what necklace to wear with an outfit?  It all depends on the cut but then the rules can also change depending on the style of the jewellery.  This week I will talk you through varying necklines and the perfect jewellery length and style of jewellery to wear with them.  The right necklace can enhance the overall appearance of an outfit.


River Island 1Boat Neck

River Island 2These work well with long necklaces.  You can use long layered necklaces too that are beaded or chunky.  A necklace like this 2 row silver and rose metal necklace with crystal studded balls.

This could be combined with long chain and also rounded necklaces.

River Island 7These necklines look super with a medium necklace and pendant.  They can also look great with a pendant that is narrow with a sharper end or that matches the shape of the V.  Not all halter neck tops have a V shape so look at the style and use the shapes and examples given above as a guide.

Some halter neck tops have a hole at the bust or spacing in the fabric.  If you wear one of these don’t wear a necklace instead style with some lovely sparkle earrings and a bracelet.
