Necklines And Necklaces: 6 Blouse Designs And What To Pair Them With

When it comes to picking a necklace for your saree, it all comes down to your blouse. Just wearing the necklace before you buy it is not enough, it needs to complement your blouse design for you to be able to enhance your ensemble. The kind of blouse design you choose plays a significant role in the way you accessorise, because not every necklace goes with every blouse design. While you may have loved Alia Bhatt’s statement chokers that she donned for her Mehendi ceremony and the NMACC Grand Opening, it might not necessarily work for YOUR look. With a myriad of designers experimenting with bold cuts and styles, it can be quite baffling to find the ideal accessory to match your go-to blouse design. So to make it simpler for you, we’ve put together a comprehensive guide to ace every neckline and up your style quotient. Take notes!

Neckline: Round or Scoop neck

The simplest and most fool-proof blouse design, this blouse neckline has been chosen by brides through the decades. And while this design may come off as conventional, there’s nothing the right necklace can’t fix. This blouse neck design offers a more symmetrical appearance, making it suitable for all body types and styles. It also accentuates your collar bones, leaving space to add a statement piece to your look.

Best paired with: Layered choker or bib style necklace

Neckline: Sweetheart neck

The most commonly opted for and most loved blouse neck design; this design effortlessly flatters your decolletage and is celebrity-approved. Pair it with an elegant princess length necklace or a choker with emerald drops. Although, make sure not to over accessorise your sweetheart neckline as it may appear too cluttered.

Best paired with: Choker or princess length necklace

Neckline: Crew or mandarin neck

Sridevi to Sonam Kapoor, we’ve spotted them all in this uber sophisticated neckline. These necklines don’t usually need to be accessorised if they have an embroidered border, but if you have opted for something lighter for a smaller occasion, a long layered necklace is sure to come in handy. For a bridal look, we recommend a raani haar. If you’re looking for a more subtle vibe, then a simple chain with a pendant or a pair with statement earrings will get the job done. Tip: Wear your hair up to maximise the appeal of this neckline.

Best paired with: Raani Haar necklace

Neckline: Collar neck

A rather informal neck design, this blouse design reminds us of Anushka Sharma from Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. Her mehendi look gave us major modern bride goals with her collared blouse, paired with a heavy skirt and a chunky layered necklace. If you’re getting married in the next few months, then this Bollywood-approved combination works best for pre-wedding festivities; or rock this combination for any special occasions to make a chic statement.

Best paired with: Long chains or long chunky necklace

Neckline: Deep V neck

A long layered necklace that replicates or overlaps with your neckline is ideal for a V-neck. If you’re a maximalist, we recommend stacking a sleek choker with a layered necklace. The layered necklace helps give the illusion of a longer neck, making it ideal for women with broad shoulders. Although, make sure that your necklace ends a little above the neckline or runs lower than it, never at the same length as the line.

Best paired with: Long layered necklace

Neckline: Strapless or off-shoulder

Flaunt your collarbones with a neckline and necklace that help accentuate it. These off-shoulder designs when paired with a stunning choker makes for a look that’s one for the books. Our favourite, Deepika Padukone has made a strong case for this combination time and again. It’s best to stick with fitted choker necklaces for this neck design to keep the attention on your shoulders and collarbones.
