    Style Guide Chapter 1. // Boat Necklines!


    Style Guide - Chapter 1.
    Sail easy with the Boat Neckline




    Welcome to the first instalment of our fun and fab Ruby Olive Style Guide! This multi-part series will guide you on how to match your brand spankin' new and existing colourful jewels with clothing styles you already have at home. Today is all about the Boat Neckline! This classic Parisian neckline is an elegant statement in itself, it widens past the collarbones to hang on the shoulders. It acts like a blank canvas on to help set the tone of your outfit. 

    We'd love to know if you call this neckline by another name? Our gorgeous community gave us a few ideas such as a jewel or crew neckline (we'll come back to this one later). So, what do YOU call this neckline and how do you wear it? 

    Let's jump straight in! We've enlisted two of our fabulous customer models Sue and Kate to show you how they would style up a classic Boat Neck.

    Dial up the fabulousness on a boat neck by adding a long statement necklace and matching statement earrings a la Sue in her Contrast Double Sided Necklace and Contrast Striped Edge Earrings. (above)

    For a more casual look, Sue wears her Contrast Striped Pendant in Multi to show how this gorgeous emerald boat neckline can be effortlessly lifted with a medium length statement necklace. (below)

    Wear with Medium or Long Necklaces

    Medium to long necklaces, especially pendant styles, usually suit this neckline best! Long bead necklaces also work well, which can create an illusion of a long silhouette and balances the neckline with length.

    Gorgeous Kate loves her Wonderland Flat Disc Necklace. A colourful long statement necklace and a bright boat neckline go perfectly together!

    Add some oomph with statement earrings and a short necklace, just like Kate with her Garden Party Two Tone Short Necklace and Garden Party Drop Earrings. Stunning! (below)
