necklaces with necklines

Choosing Necklaces With Necklines

Choosing a right length and type of necklace for different necklines can be tricky. Here you can find the most common necklines for dresses and tops to help you to design your piece. There are really no rules but we want you to wear accessories that look good on you and fit your personal style.

Hopefully these suggestions will help you choose your necklace style for your neckline.

Choose a necklace that’s just little bit shorter than your neckline. You want to emphasise the shape of your neckline and add some heavier beads at the bottom of the necklace. The necklace above is ‘matinee’ length.

Round u-neckline

A small round neckline can be difficult to accessorise as you don’t want your necklace falling under your dress via the neckline. Go for a necklace that i sufficiently longer than your neckline and sits nicely on top of your dress.

Strapless dress

A statement necklace of choker length is the right choice for a strapless dress or a top. It balances the large skin area and makes the whole outfit look elegant and considered.

Boat neckline

Accessorise this generous neckline with a long beaded necklace or two.

Collar top

A necklace may get lost under a collar top so I recommend wearing a bold choker necklace.


Long beaded necklaces or pendants are a good choice for a turtleneck top.
