Finding the perfect necklace and outfit combo isn't as easy as it looks. From dainty chains to statement pieces, there are endless pairings to try before finding the best match for an ensemble. After observing all of the red carpets from this year's award show season, we've discovered a fail-proof duo—plunging necklines and long pendants.

Take it from these red carpet pros—it looks chic every time. By mimicking a V-neckline shape with your bauble, you'll complement the outfit's design while adding a bit of bling to the equation. Faith Hill first brought the look to our attention at the 2015 Academy Awards in a long-sleeved J. Mendel number with an equally stunning long diamond necklace that skimmed along the dress's waistline.

The always glamorous  Rosie Huntington-Whitely is also onboard with the daring duo. She picked a sparkling silver piece to complement her white, skin-bearing gown.
