Learning how to pair necklaces with necklines is the bane of our existence. There is nothing worse than a piece of jewelry that takes away from your favorite outfit.

We’ve rounded up all the best tips and tricks plus plenty of cheat sheets that will ensure that you look your stylish best at all times.

The Neckline Cheat Sheet

Here is a great visual from Charming Charlie for pairing different styles of necklaces with necklines. There is a look for everything from a simple ballet cut to the tricky cowl.

You’ll notice that some necklines are easier to pair with bigger statement necklaces. These include:

  • V-necks
  • Strapless
  • Button-Down
  • Ballet
  • Crew Tops

Necklines with more emphasis such as cowls and turtlenecks can still be paired with bold necklaces. It is recommended to choose those that are a little less ornate.

How To Accessorize Necklines

This graphic from MixNMatch-HK shows some great variations that you can use with different necklines.

As you can see there are a couple of different options and you can choose from a bold statement piece or something more classic.

1. Pay Attention to length You don’t want your necklace constantly falling in the front of your top, or your bright-print dress to be overpowered by a statement necklace.

2. Statement Or Classic? Deciding whether you should go with that statement piece or not? Remember, it depends on your necklines and how it’s decorated. If it has a complex pattern or already has some adornment on it, it’s probably best to stick with just earrings.

3. Color You don’t want your colors to completely clash, but having everything matching is always the best idea either. Find colors that go well together, and decide whether you want your jewelry or outfit to pop out more.
