Many of us have spent hours staring aimlessly at our wardrobes overflowing with outfit options, mentally pairing the right clothes and the right shoes. After finally having found what we’ve been looking for, our focus shifts to accessories!
Picking out the right piece of jewellery can sometimes be a lot harder than usual. It can be tough to decide whether to pair a bold statement piece with a strapless dress, or if a one-shoulder can be worn with a necklace. Although accessories can help complete your look, too much can sometimes take away from your outfit. Here is a jewellery cheat sheet to help you figure out what is the best piece of jewellery to pair with different necklines.
Scoop neck: these necklines are the easiest to accessorize. Pair your scoop necks with jewellery that follows the contour of the neckline. Try a long necklace if the neckline is high, and a short necklace or chocker if the neckline is low.

One Shoulder: Because of the asymmetric design of this neckline, it is best you team it up with a pair of earrings. Drop or dangle earrings are excellent choice of earrings to pair with this neckline.

Boat: Add length to your look, and enhance your shoulders and collarbone with a long necklace.

Strapless: a strapless neckline is most flexible in terms of jewellery options. Avoid covering up the skin with a big piece of chucky jewellery. Try a pair of huggie earrings to highlight the neck and collarbones. It’s a great way to make a statement without overpowering the dress.

Halter: this neckline is one of the trickiest to accessories. You can either leave your neck bare, or liven your look by layering multiple strands of delicate jewellery.
Cowl: Because the details of the cowls are already decorative, skip the necklace and add a pair of sparkling studs.
