Basic Tips:

In general, there are a few basic fashion tips you can follow to help you find the right necklace for your neckline:

  • Pairing a round shaped necklace with a v-neck is a no-no. Choose a necklace with a pendant so that it falls in a "V" shape to mimic your neckline.
  • Don't wear any necklace at all with a halter top - earrings and bracelets make better accessories for this type of neckline.
  • Choker length necklaces (14-16 inches) are suggested to accessorize strapless tops and dresses. Strings of pearls or crystals work well, or delicate chain necklaces with a tiny pendant or drop are quite pretty too!
  • A Princess length necklace (between 17-18 inches long) is a lovely accompaniment to a plunging neckline, and especially for evening gowns with this feature.
  • Opera length necklaces (22-24 inches) pair well with turtleneck tops and can really complete the look nicely!
