What necklace to wear with a round neckline

What necklace to wear with a round neckline
11/30/2016 Alicia L.

Still on the theme of what necklace to wear with different necklines, this post is dedicated to the round neckline. There are many types of round necklines: the boat neck, the spoon neck… For the time being, this post will be about the simple round neckline, like in basic T-shirts, for example. A simple neckline that we use 75% of our time.

The standard measure of this type of neckline is 13″ (33 cm), so it will be great if our necklace is similar to this length. So that the necklace doesn’t get lost amongst the garment, it’s better if we use a wide necklace: thus it will seem to be a motif of the top we are wearing. Check these exceptional women out – they know what they’re doing.

Another option is a BIB necklace – large collars on the front so they occupy much of our dress or top and it will catch your eye. They are highly flattering but you must consider the color of your top before choosing your necklace – if they have too much printing, it’s better if it’s a single tone.

This is fantastic for an everyday day outfit like jeans and a basic T- shirt.

We’re fans of the ethnic look and there are cool BIB ethnic necklaces. You will look like the exotic Yma Sumac. We love you, Yma Sumac!

You know that you always get it right with a long chain necklace, perhaps with a pendant, or layered with other necklaces. Success assured.

Or maybe you can dare to mix different necklace styles in one outfit!
