What necklaces go best with certain necklines?
~ Jessica ~
Necklaces are my favorite accessory because they instantly change up an outfit. In fact, I’ve been known to build entire looks around a big statement piece! The bigger and brighter, the better. Here are two of my favorite “cheat sheets” for necklines (from two of my favorite places to buy necklaces).

Finally, a few things to keep in mind:
- The bigger the necklace, the smaller the earrings (or none at all). I prefer to keep the focus on one piece, especially if I layer a chunky pendant or collar necklace over a button-down or higher neckline.
- On a budget? Necklaces add color and sparkle to every wardrobe. They can instantly dress up a simple top and pair of jeans, or liven up an old LBD. It’s amazing how one single piece can make you feel like you’re wearing a brand new outfit!
- In addition to the stores above, Anthropologie, J.Crew, Ann Taylor Loft, and Francesca’s are a few of my favorite destinations for statement pieces.
