Pairing the Perfect Necklace with Different Necklines
So I’ve got a confession to make .. sometimes when I’m getting dressed in the morning, I use my cheat sheet as a reference to pairing the perfect necklace to my outfit. With all the necklines and necklaces out there, it gets confusing! That’s why I finally got together with my favorite model Erika Fermina to create a visual guide version of my cheat sheet to make necklace pairings super easy for everyone.
Halter neck with a Triangle Pendant
The halter neck is best paired with a triangle shaped pendant. If you look at the lines of the sides of a halter top, they go up toward your face in almost a triangle shape. So I like to offset this with a triangle shaped necklace pointing down from your face for the perfect balance.
Crew Neckline with a Bib or Collar Necklace
The crew neckline is the most unassuming neckline. Pair this with a bib or collar because the curved neckline helps support and enhance the shape of rounder necklaces.
Tube Top with Choker
Keep things minimal by pairing your tube top with a simple choker. The straight line cut of the tube top is perfect for showing off the simplicity of your choker and also helps to elongate your neckline!
Button up with statement necklace
Pairing button-ups with a statement necklace is one of my favorite pairings. I love how the statement necklace comes out from under the collar as though its almost one piece. It’s the perfect combination of subtle and statement!
Turtleneck with a Long Chain
Now that Fall is coming, I expect to see a lot more of this pairing. It’s simple and elegant, and this is also one of the pairings that helps elongate your neck in a sophisticated and understated way.
Square neckline with Angular Necklace
A square neckline is one of the hardest necklines to pair because there are so many hard lines going on. But for this reason, it’s perfect for bringing out the shape of an angular necklace. Did you notice that it also enhances the jawline?
V-neck with Slim Pendant
This pairing is simple and sweet. I love pairing a V-neck with a simple slim pendant for a classy and understated look. Less is more in this case.

Can you wear a chocker with v-necks? 99% of my tops/dresses are v-necks. I have worn drop pendants with them but I want a bit more variety.
Wonderfully written article, but I must say that the necklace worn with the tube top is not a choker, but in fact a torc. Chokers are closer to the neck, and fully closed, whereas a torc is usually open at the front, and may or may not be close to the neck. (Interesting fact: Originally torcs were part of many European cultures from around the 8th century BC to the 3rd century AD, and featured very prominently in Celtic culture.)

Perfect lesson – thankyou!!
Great post! Really helpful!
Gosh, thanks for the guidelines ! I’m not much of a fan of necklaces tbh – ’cause they keep staying annoying when I’ve got to run – but as much as I’d like to refrain, they just look too fabulous and detailed, and knowing how to style them is definitely just another reason why I should get back to necklaces.
This is great Chriselle! I also love the statement necklace and button up. It’s my favorite. Thanks for the cheat sheet! Finally!

This is such a helpful post! I usually don’t know what to wear with my necklaces since their shapes vary and some I can’t wear like the other! Very helpful! Thank you!
I absolutely needed this! Thank you! One of my favorite post by you!
Great reference guide! I especially like the halter necklace. I usually don’t wear any necklaces when I wear a halter top/dress. I haven’t thought of a triangular pendant necklace. I’ll have to make one! Lol
Thanks for the awesome ideas!
Hope everything is going well with your pregnancy!
This post is a lifesaver, Chriselle! I love the halter neck/triangle pendant and square neckline/angular necklace pairings. Definitely bookmarking.
Great tips! Love the button up shirt with the statement necklace look!

Thanks for the guideline because I always problem finding the right top for my choker and long chain necklaces… I think the pairings are spot on and they look effortlessly chic and sophisticated. Guess black and white tops suits all types of necklace though…
Super cute, love the variety of necklaces!!
I have never ever thought about pairing particular necklaces with necklines. What a fabulous idea! I’ll definitely be using this super cool cheat sheet in the future!
Yay! This makes me happy, which pairing was your favorite Kiara?
These are all great and on point!!! It drives me nuts when a wrong necklace is paired with a wrong top, they both clash each other and don’t trully showcase their beauty. Thanks for sharing!!!
I feel the same way Juliana! Thanks for sharing your thoughts, feel free to share this post with your girlfriends! Hope to hear from you again! 🙂
Just what I needed. Thanks, Chriselle! ^^
I love that statement necklace!
I wear a lot of button down shirts to work so I recently unearthed my accessories collection and started doing necklace pairings. It is really exciting, brings some colour to my work outfits too. Will be trying out more especially with this cheatsheet.
This post was great! Am always a bit insecure when it comes to pairing necklines with necklaces, but this has definitely put an end to it 🙂 cheers!
WOW! This is an amazing and very helpful post! Thank you for sharing!
