To best complement this skin-baring style, Macari recommends accentuating the décolletage with a necklace that comes to a point.

Following the natural curve of the collarbone, bateau necklines look best when paired with a bracelet and mid-length drop earrings, which Macari says help “create movement.”

“A bold necklace could compete with the neckline and make it look too busy,” Macari says. Aim for simplicity with your favorite pair of studs and a bracelet instead.

No need to play it safe on your wedding day. Show off your style with a necklace that “incorporates color or unique shapes,” Macari says. “One that hits your collarbone will be the most flattering.”
