Tips and Tricks: Which Necklace for Which Neckline?

It’s Friday morning, and you’re ready for the weekend. You wake up a little early, and you actually do your hair and makeup for the first time this week. (This has nothing to do with what happened yesterday. You know, when that guy in accounting asked if you felt ok because you looked a little “bleh”?)  After putting on your favorite top, you reach for one of your many necklaces. Herein lies the problem...the necklaces you try seem just a bit off.

*Sidenote- Here at Revive we don’t think there’s such a thing as having too many accessories. Unless of course you were thinking of donating some pieces, in which case, YES, you do have too many! Let us take those off your hands.

Accessories can make or break an outfit, so it’s really frustrating when they don’t look right. Tired of standing in front of the mirror trying to figure out why your top and necklace combo isn’t working? Check out our tips on pairing necklaces based on different necklines to avoid fashion frustration!

V-Neck: Don’t over-do it with a v-neck. Simple and sophisticated pair well with this dramatic neckline. Small pendants that form a “v” themselves are a great way to subtly accentuate this cut.

Button Ups: Don’t be afraid to play around with a button up. You can do a fun, funky statement piece like this one peeking out from the collar, or a larger pendant that hangs to about the second button.

Turtlenecks: Turtlenecks mean that there is a lot of fabric on your body. Avoid looking boxy by adding a piece that will elongate your neck and shape. Pick something that is long and stands out well against the fabric.

Sweetheart: Break out the chunky necklaces! Sweetheart cuts nicely frame larger pieces that might have been too much on another top.

Scoop Neck: Scoop necks offer tons of versatility. We chose to pair this top with a longer statement piece, but something shorter or more subtle would work too!

Boat Neck or Crew Neck: You’re going to want something to break up this shape. Some people like a heavier collar necklace to draw attention, but we love how the sharp angles of this necklace draw your attention while acting as a counter to a shallow neckline.
