1. Pair a V Neckline with a Short Pendant Necklace

Choosing a delicate pendant necklace, you will mimic and accentuate the neckline. When wearing a v-neck shirt or blouse this is a fantastic way to showcase a favorite necklace. Choose a shorter necklace so it doesn’t get lost in the shirt. Ideally, the necklace should end right where you want to draw the eye

2. Pair a Boat Neckline with a Lariat Necklace

This top works well with just about any type of necklace - the basic neckline creates a blank canvas. A lariat necklace, also called a y-neck because of its shape, adds visual interest and is a popular trend right now.

A station necklace is a chain that features diamonds or metal elements at regular intervals. It’s a classic necklace that perfectly accentuates a classic boat neckline. You can easily create balance of length that elongates both your outfit and look. It’s a simple and sophisticated style that can’t miss!

4. Pair a Square Neckline with a Bar Necklace

With an angular shape, keep accessories minimal. The horizontal bar of the neckline mimics the square necklace and accentuates your collarbones.
