FAQ About How to Match Jewellery with Your Outfit

How can I match jewelry with different necklines?

Matching jewelry with different necklines is essential to create a well-coordinated and stylish look. The neckline of your clothing can greatly influence the type of jewelry you should wear. Here are some guidelines for matching jewelry with various necklines:

V-Neck Neckline:

  • V-necklines create a V shape that draws attention to the chest and neckline.
  • Suitable jewelry: Pendant necklaces that follow the V shape of the neckline, Y-necklaces, or statement necklaces that fill the open space created by the V-neck.

Scoop Neckline:

  • Scoop necklines have a curved, wide neckline that exposes more of the chest and collarbone.
  • Suitable jewelry: Short necklaces, chokers, or collar necklaces that sit just above the neckline. Layered necklaces can also work well.

Crew Neckline:

  • Crew necklines are round and sit high on the neck, covering most of the chest.
  • Suitable jewelry: Statement earrings, as they draw attention upward, or longer pendant necklaces that fall below the neckline but above the chest.

Boat Neckline:

  • Boat necklines are wide and horizontal, sitting just off the shoulders.
  • Suitable jewelry: Statement earrings or shorter necklaces that sit just above the neckline. Consider balancing the width of the neckline with chunky or layered necklaces.

Square Neckline:

  • Square necklines have a flat, square shape that emphasizes the shoulders and collarbone.
  • Suitable jewelry: Choker necklaces, shorter pendant necklaces, or statement earrings that complement the square shape.

Halter Neckline:

  • Halter necklines have a high neckline that wraps around the neck, leaving the shoulders and back exposed.
  • Suitable jewelry: Skip necklaces altogether and focus on statement earrings, bracelets, or a chic updo to showcase your neck and shoulders.

Strapless Neckline:

  • Strapless necklines expose the shoulders and chest, making them a canvas for bold jewelry.
  • Suitable jewelry: Statement necklaces, chokers, or bold collar necklaces. Focus on the neck and chest area, as it's prominently displayed.

Off-Shoulder Neckline:

  • Off-shoulder necklines expose the shoulders and collarbone while framing the face.
  • Suitable jewelry: Statement earrings, chokers, or shorter pendant necklaces that draw attention to the neck and shoulders.

One-Shoulder Neckline:

  • One-shoulder necklines expose one shoulder and part of the chest.
  • Suitable jewelry: Earrings, a single statement earring on the exposed side, or a single pendant necklace that complements the asymmetric look.

Deep Plunge Neckline:

  • Deep plunge necklines are low-cut and create a dramatic V shape.
  • Suitable jewelry: Long pendant necklaces or lariats that complement the V shape, or statement earrings to draw attention upward.
