Easy Outfit Upgrade: Wear a Y-Chain Necklace with a Deep-V Neckline
This accessory trick is the ying to your decolletage yang.
There are many things in life that go hand in hand. Like Taylor Swift, food has a long list of lovers: milk and cookies, PB&J, bacon and eggs...need we say more? Plus, any beauty guru will cite the ever-popular cat eye and red lip as a classic combination.
But what about accessories? Leave it to the red carpet pros to craft an ingenious no-fail jewelry trick with a Y-necklace and deep-V. Since the long chain balances out the skin-baring neckline, it's as if these two wardrobe must-haves were made for each other.
The beautiful Rosie Huntington-Whiteley put a feminine spin on the union with soft, elegant choices. Her red carpet approach included a thin gold chain with diamonds to complement her ladylike lace dress.
We're all about replacing a shirt with a blazer for a tastefully sexy night out. Jennifer Aniston seems to be into it too, picking a marsala pantsuit for the 2015 Critic's Choice Awards and pairing the structured top with a bohemian set of layered necklaces.
Greer Grammer offset the plunging V-neck on her white halter jumpsuit with a long silver Y-chain necklace at Entertainment Weekly's celebration honoring the 2015 SAG Awards nominees.
This styling trick isn't just reserved for red carpets either. Pretty Little Liars actress Shay Mitchell has casually rocked the pairing on her Instagram a few times in the past couple of weeks. First, she showed off her Y-chain in a pineapple bikini ensemble while vacationing in Bali, then in an NFL T-shirt to celebrate the Super Bowl.
Pulling off this look is as simple as finding the right necklace and top combo for your style persona. A classic dresser might opt for a timeless pearl-drop necklace ($67) similar to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's delicate chain. Boho ladies will love the layered look ($6) that Jennifer Aniston brought to the red carpet, while glam girls can achieve Greer Grammer's daring getup with this thick, silver knot necklace ($30). If you covet Shay Mitchell's cool-girl vibe, pick a versatile, trendy piece ($48) for everyday wear. Whichever bauble suits you, simply coordinate with a low neckline for a stylish combo that's sure to impress.
