“What Necklace Should I Wear With This?”

1. BOAT NECK

The eye must travel! Complement the width of a boat neck by adding length with your necklace. Try a necklace that hangs lower than the neckline of your top. The length of the necklace can elongate and balance out the broadness of the boat neckline. Alternatively, you can match it with a long layered necklace to give it more volume.

Try either the Aventine Long Pendant or the Trevi Convertible Pendant Necklace

 

2. SCOOP NECK

Accentuate your scoop neck top with a necklace that matches the same shape and cut of the neckline. Scoop necks are best paired with short necklaces with volume or statement necklaces. The necklace should fall above your neckline or follow the line of your neckline to help fill in the bare spaces around your neck.

If you prefer a simpler look, you can choose a long simple necklace (with pendant)that falls between your chest and belly button.

For an open collar look (unbutton the top buttons), you can pair it with a simple short necklace with a slim pendant that does not pass the neckline. As the button down shirt is very busy, it is best to wear simple necklaces to balance it out.

For a closed collar look (button all the way up), you should go for a statement necklace. Make sure the necklace wraps perfectly around the neckline and worn understand the collar. This pairing can transform a boring collar shirt into a edgy chic look.
