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.

These Zodiac Constellation Necklaces from Etsy would certainly fit the bill and they have been huge sellers. We can see why! Some other tips you should adhere to when selecting your necklace are the following:

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.
