We may know exactly what types of neckline flatters our body types, and which ones are the trendiest (still off-shoulder, by the way). But, here’s something that may constantly boggle our minds when it comes to accessorising our necks—what kind of necklaces best complements the different necklines? Fret not, here’s a complete guide to choosing your baubles according to the neckline.

Crew Neck

A true-blue classic that is everyone’s go-to neckline—the crew neck. While every type of necklace will go with the crew neck, spruce yours up with statement collar necklaces. Take a cue from Sophie Turner and opt for an edgy number for that instant cool-chic vibe.

Be it a toga or an “accidental slip-off-the-shoulder” look, balance the asymmetrical neckline with delicate pendant necklaces. It not only adds a slight sparkle, but also draws the attention to your sensuous collarbone.

Deep Plunge

While a plunging neckline elongates one’s torso, it may sometimes seem a little bare. Throw on a long-line necklace with just the right amount of sparkle for that charming, elegant look. Charlize Theron adorns her décolletage a diamond-studded Harry Winston number.

A fashion-forward neckline which exposes collar bones and shoulders calls for statement chokers to draw the eyes up to the face. Choose from grunge-like velvet chokers to edgy yet polished metal pieces, or even layering collar necklaces with chokers like Lauren Santo Domingo—a large amount of bare skin leaves room for experiment.

A perfect layering piece that not only keeps you warm, but also adds a certain allure to an ensemble—the turtleneck is definitely a wardrobe staple. Match and balance the minimalistic look with strings of precious gems that draws the eyes center and down.

Of course Elle Fanning would embody and represent this sweet and feminine neckline. Avoid over-accessorizing by sticking to collar necklaces with a centerpiece that complements the curve of the heart-shaped neckline. Complete the look with a pair ear studs in a similar style.
