Scoop necklines give you lots of room to work with. You can go short or long, statement or subtle. For this look, we used a lengthy geometric style that had a scoop shape of its own.

A sweetheart neckline can make a great frame for a shorter statement necklace. A chunky chain or layered beads will work well with the sweetheart shape.

Turtlenecks call for larger, longer pieces that won’t interfere with the neckline. Choose something that will stand out against all the fabric, like an oversized locket or a long string of beads.

You can get a little creative with a button down neckline! A short, chunky choker peeking out from under the collar creates a brooch-like aesthetic. Or, a mid-length pendant worn over the collar (shown above) complements the shape and angles of the top.

For v-necks, try a smaller drop pendant that comes to a point and mimics the shape of the neckline. The effect is subtle and sophisticated, and it packs a lot of “less is more” appeal.
