You can wear also long necklaces with cowl or turtleneck tops, but you should wear them over the shirt, so they stand out more.
Depending on the type of necklace, consider some small hoops or dangle earrings of the same color. With long necklaces you can them dress up or dress them down depending on how swanky your outfit is. Just make sure not to overpower to look!
Chokers and other short necklaces are great for accentuating your neck and collarbones. This is great for not only crew neck shirts but also strapless or spaghetti strap tops! It completes the outfit very well. Chandeliers and dangle earrings are great for keeping focus up, on your shoulders and jawline as well as your hair. Make sure the earrings compliment the look, or else it’ll just look garish.

The necklace will draw enough attention for whatever you’re wearing. Finish off the look with a simple band, and studs, teardrop earrings or thin hoops.
