sticking your neck out?

November 16, 2018

Imagine this. You’re getting ready to go to work. It’s a beautiful morning so you want to dress up. You take your time picking out your outfit. You decide to go with a boat neck shirt and a nice pair of denim jeans. You know something is missing from the outfit but you don’t know how to add a little pizazz. You decide on a necklace but you don’t know which of the ones you own would go best. You don’t want to waste time deciding on one, so you leave with no necklace and a boring outfit. 

H&A is here to help you eliminate that annoying fashion headache from your life with our neckline cheat sheet! I’ll be helping you style 7 different types of necklines. By the end of this, you might be headed out to get more necklaces! Don’t say you weren’t warned!!




Don’t hesitate to adorn a turtleneck with a lightweight free moving drop of shimmer. The free dangling nature will balance out the stuffiness a turtleneck can give off.   




The scoop or jewel neckline gets its name from being the same circumference as a classic strand of pearls, so keep your sparkle understated with a gentle curve of diamonds with either a bar, a row or both. If it is a scoop neckline, compliment the neckline’s symmetry with a gentle curve of diamonds.




To take advantage of a V-neck plunge, you want a piece that highlights your collarbone and cleavage with dramatic vertical elements.






Strapless necklines offer so many option, but one of our favorites is a fluid, intricately crafted open choker that showcases the clavicle. 


Off the shoulder



An off the shoulder neckline is deliberately provocative, so add to the intrigue with a circle of unexpected shapes or a mix of metals.


Button down shirt


Enhance the discreet opening a a tailored button down with a simple bar of diamonds.


Boat neck


The boat neck is a wide neckline that runs horizontally across the collarbone.
These are typically a more elegant neckline that requires more elegant fashion necklaces.
The best necklaces for boat necks are 18-inch princess necklaces or long pearls. These help to maintain the elegant and classic look of the boat neck.
