How to choose jewelry for the neckline of clothes?

The neckline on clothes is one of the main criteria that should be considered when choosing jewelry. Correctly selected accessories will highlight the dignity of your appearance and make your look balanced. Read about how to choose the right decoration for each type of neckline in our material.


This neckline is considered the most attractive: it visually lengthens the neck and emphasizes the seductive line of the neckline. In terms of the choice of accessories, it is also considered to be very successful. Ideal for a V-neckline - accessories that follow its shape. At the same time, jewelry should be of medium length - be proportionate to the neckline and not go beyond it, otherwise they may "get lost" against the background of clothing.

Round neckline

The round neckline is one of the most common. It can be found on dresses, jumpers and T-shirts of various styles. The choice of decoration in this case will depend not only on the shape, but also on the depth of the cutout. For example, a round neckline looks very laconic and restrained; long chains from 70 to 90 cm, decorated with large pendants, multilayer necklaces and beads falling down will look good with it. Another original option is false collars, embroidered with beads, pearls or rhinestones.

6 main types of choker and necklace:

"Collar" or collar - 30-35 cm (tight to the neck)

Choker - 35-40 cm (located at the base of the neck)

"Princess" - 45-50 cm (classic length of beads)

Matine - 50-65 cm (universal length of products for every day)

Opera - 65-90 cm (for evening events)

"Rope" or "Lariant" - more than 90 cm (to create a multi-layered image)

If the neckline is deep enough, pay attention to stylish chokers that tightly fit the neck, as well as short necklaces and chains 40-45 cm long.It is important to choose the right length here: accessories should be located on the neck so that they are above the neckline, but not intersected by it and certainly were not longer.

High-necked blouses and jumpers are special wardrobe items. It is difficult to combine jewelry with them, but it is possible. Choose chains and necklaces 55 and over. It can be a string of pearls, a gold or silver chain with a pendant, or an unusual necklace in the spirit of Chanel. Alternatively, you can completely abandon neck jewelry, replacing them with long earrings and a bracelet, which will complement the look without overloading it.

Boat neckline

The boat neckline got its name for a reason: its shape, indeed, resembles a boat. This neckline looks very feminine: the wide neckline opens the collarbones and visually shifts the focus to the shoulders. Add to it a long layered necklace or chain with a pendant 55-60 cm long. Such accessories will add charm and make the image more balanced.

Turn-down collar shirts are a staple in any wardrobe. For classic blouses for everyday work, choose short chains with pendants and minimalist designs. But if a shirt is an integral part of your everyday look, feel free to add bright necklaces and chokers to them to make your look even more original!

Open shoulder / strapless

Off-the-shoulder outfits look incredibly seductive! If the neckline is symmetrical and opens both shoulders at once, then both short and long jewelry will suit it. It can be “collars”, chokers and massive necklaces tightly around the neck, as well as deliberately long chains with large pendants and necklaces made of several rows of threads.

If the neckline is asymmetrical and shows only one shoulder, choose short accessories, or if you like to experiment with style, choose an asymmetrical necklace with a quirky design.
