Take the plunge and elevate your V-necklines
Welcome to our second chapter of the Ruby Olive Style Guide. This multi-part series has been created as a tool to help guide you on which jewels are going to look like a match made in heaven with different clothing styles and necklines you already have at home.Please note the key word here is that this is a guide, wear whatever makes you feel like your most fabulous self! If you missed Chapter 1, you can catch up on our first instalment HERE.
Today is all about V-necks, baby! The V-neck is a deep neckline that reveals a little cleavage (or a lot if you’re game). This classic V shaped neckline is best worn with short to medium necklaces, making sure the bottom of the necklace isn’t touching the top. You don’t want your statement piece getting hidden by the fabric or trapped between the girls!
- Tip # 1 Wear your fave medium length necklace (like Sue above, wearing the Contrast Two Sided Necklace) if it significantly cuts across the neckline and sits above or below the V. Ideally, do not want the top of the fabric touching the bottom of the necklace.
- Tip # 2Double up a long beaded necklace to give a layered look to the décolletage area. A fresh and fun homage to the classic double string of pearls!
- Tip # 3 Collar and plate style necklaces work perfectly with a V-neck as they mirror the shape of the neckline.
- Tip # 4 Have fun and express yourself! Play around with block colours, multi colours and prints - both in your fabrics and jewellery. Life is too short to wear boring jewellery!
