Plan your looks well with this guide!

Accessorizing takes art. You can't simply throw on a pile of jewelry and expect it to work on all your outfits. To help you out, we've gathered all the possible necklines with suggestions on how you can pair them with different necklaces. Scroll down and learn the easiest style equations that will take your OOTDs to the next level.

1. Turtleneck + geometric/ statement

Turtlenecks essentially give you a blank canvas. It's time for you to step it up and go for a statement necklace that can be the focal point of your outfit.

2. Scoop neck + shorter necklaces

Mimic the scoop neckline and wear necklaces that have a little volume to take up the space on your bare neck.

4. Strapless + choker

Bring out the chokers and layer them up, but don't settle for the '90s version. Chokers come in different styles, and contrary to popular belief, you can wear them on top of each other.
