Learn the basics of pairing various necklines with the right necklace. Fashion consultant and blogger Reachel Bagley shows us how!
Match the vertical, lean opening with a long lariat or pendant. Avoid wide, bulky necklaces, which will visually argue with your smart blazer lapels.
The Collared Shirt:
Button all the way up; then add chic to your geek with a bold bib. Or opt to unbutton an opening and pair a slightly longer, delicate piece underneath.
The Crew Neck:
Customize a simple crew neck with a bold collar. Done properly it looks like a built-in addition.
Achieve a bohemian, eclectic angle by coupling this classic with a long, opera-length strand. Avoid short, delicate baubles. You’ll end up looking like your suffocating from daintiness.
Temper the drama with sweet, little pendants. Layer on the interest with different lengths and varying scales.
The Scoop Neck:
Fill your negative “scoop” with a classic, princess length that follows the line of your shirt seam. If your neckline is already embellished consider ornamenting ears, wrists, or fingers.
