Where are my jewelry lovers at? I have entirely way too many necklaces, but hey, a girl needs her options! 😉 I’ve had a couple requests on writing a blog about how to pick your necklace based on the style/cut of the shirt. Let me start out by saying, there really isn’t a right or wrong way of doing this. These are simply my ideas, and personal preferences. I’ve researched this subject a few times now, and this is what I’ve come up with over the years. I always love a visual when I’m trying to plan out my outifts, so I hope this is helpful for you guys!
I always go with a long necklace, or a necklace that takes on the same v neck shape. I find that wearing a rounded necklace with a v cut shirt, takes away from the neckline of the shirt.
I tend to go with a mid length statement necklace with my turtlenecks. You don’t want anything too short, because that seems like a lot going on around the neckline. I also tend to steer clear of long necklaces, because I feel like that’s two different things going on. The turtleneck is kind of the statement, so if you pair with a long necklace, I think it takes away from the shirt itself.
I love a simple longer necklace with cowl necks. The cowl neckline is the statement, so all you need is a simple piece to accent.
Here is where you guys can go crazy! You can wear any style necklace with a crew neck top. Long, short, simple, or bold. Have fun with this one! 🙂
I like a short statement necklace with my button up or collared shirts. This isn’t the only option, but this is my personal preference. I find that if I put a mid length or long necklace under the collar, it krinkles the collar and therefore doesn’t lay right.
If your top already has a statement neckline to it, just throw on some fun earrings instead. You don’t want to overdue it by adding a necklace.
Layering necklaces is super fun! If you can’t decide between a couple different necklaces, why not throw on both of them. As long as they blend, and are along the same color scheme. As I said above, I don’t like to put my necklaces under the collar. So in this case above, I let them naturally fall over the buttons on the shirt.
Don’t be afraid to still wear those necklaces with bold patterns. As long as the necklace is along the same color scheme, I say go for it! I do this often.
Well ladies, those are my visual tips for y’all. Like I said, there really isn’t a right or wrong way. But these are the few simple ideas I like to follow. If I left something out, or you have any questions for me, drop a comment below. I love the feedback! Xo
