Which Necklace To Wear With What Neckline

Necklaces are popular this fall/winter season and there are several styles of necklaces to choose from. Do you ever wonder which necklace to wear with what neckline?


Today I’ve picked three necklaces: the pendant necklace, the jeweled necklace and the collared necklace and shared which neckline would look the best.

Necklines that are high up on the chest like a crew cut, or a turtle neck are perfect for a long or dangling necklace. This is a great way to add dimension to a simple shirt or dress.

Long pendant necklaces also give a slimming affect by elongating the body.

The v-neck dress or shirt works well with the popular jeweled necklaces. The necklace should hit mid chest.

I showed you this red dress yesterday, that I recently received in my Stitch Fix box. Wouldn’t it look great with a jeweled necklace?

I love this necklace but I also think a pop of color would look great too!

If you’re brave enough to wear a strapless dress in the cold winter weather, then a collared necklace is the perfect accessory.

Here’s a neckline cheat sheet I found on Pinterest. They style the strapless dress a little differently but I like the other ideas.



Do you accessorize with necklaces? Do you have a hard time picking the right necklace? 

Beauty For the Heart~~I love one of the points to ponder in my devotion this morning. Regardless of what “it” is, God is greater.

I don’t know what your “it” is, but I’m guessing you might have one. Rejoice in the fact that God is greater than what you’re going through so give “it” to Him.

You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. 1 John 4:4

Have a blessed day!

  1. Great tips Cyndi. I especially like your ” beauty for the heart”. Instead of telling God how big our problems are we can tell our problems how big our God is!! Have a blessed Thanksgiving !

  2. You know how much I need help with this, Cyndi! Thank you so much for this post!!

    I do have my necklaces all nicely organized now, so I can see what I have. . . just need to make myself wear them more often.

    Question: do you have a suggestion for an “all-purpose” jeweled necklace–one that would work with lots of different colored tops? Or do they all feature colored details?

  3. I love necklaces and always wear one. I especially like the collar style as my neck is long. I figure before it starts to fall apart I might as well go for it! I sometimes just use a silk ribbon with a pendant strung through it. or attach a brooch to a string of pearls. It does so change the look of an outfit. I will forgo one if there to much going on in the outfit or earrings.
