Ever wonder which type of necklace is best for which necklace you are wearing? If you are anything like most women, you have wondered this exact thing - and more than once!
This is Part 1 - Which necklace? Which neckline?
1. For a boatneck neckline (always popular in spring clothing collections coming out now), a long, chain necklace is a great choice. Not only does a long layered chain necklace not get caught up in your neckline but it balances the width of the neckline, creating a longer silhouette.
2. For a V - neckline, it's best to go with a necklace that will "nestle" just above the V. Especially nice for this type of neckline is a necklace of the same shape - one that will fall into a V shape when worn.
3. Finally, for a scooped or crew neck, the general rule is that, for a lower scoop, where a shorter necklace; for a higher scooped neckline, choose a longer necklace. A couple of long layered necklaces is perfect for this neckline.
