What jewellery suits my dress? Create a stylish look every time by following these 5 simple rules to match the perfect jewellery accessories with your dress.
1. Strapless Neckline
This dress style is like a beautiful blank canvas because it leaves your decolletage, shoulders and arms bare. It’s the perfect time to wear a big, sparkling necklace without the danger of it all looking “too much”. However, if you do decide to wear a bold necklace… remember to keep the rest of your jewellery minimal. This will give your statement necklace the starring role it deserves, and make sure your jewellery doesn’t overpower the dress.
2. High Neckline
You should avoid wearing a necklace with a high-necked dress. Why? Firstly, because it will look too “busy”. And secondly, it will make your neck look shorter. (This rule also applies to asymmetrical dresses and halternecks.) Instead, slip on a pair of long, fabulous drop earrings or dazzling hoops. These will highlight and define your face, whilst giving length to your neck. Finally, balance out the look with a wide evening bracelet on your wrist.
3. Low Cut Neckline
A drop necklace that highlights the decolletage is the perfect accessory for a dress neckline that dips into a deep “V” or “U” shape. Choose the pendant length to match the scoop of the cleavage. For a glam evening look, you can get away with a pair of matching drop earrings. But if you feel they’re too much, a pair of simple studs or buttons work too. If you wear a bracelet, make sure it’s not too big. Otherwise, it will distract from the main attraction: your upper half.
4. Straight Neckline
A straight neckline, also known as a “bateau neck”, is designed to show off your collarbone. To accentuate this area even more, consider wearing a short or medium-length necklace. A string of diamonds, pearls or gems is ideal. It should drape over the collar of your dress in 1920s flapper style. For earrings, choose simple studs or button earrings. Finally, to bring the look together, rock a large statement ring on your hand.
5. Any Dress Style!
When in doubt, there are three jewellery items you cannot go wrong with: diamond stud earrings, tennis bracelets and solitaire pendants. These pieces are so classic and versatile that they look good with any type of dress. It’s no coincidence that professional stylists call them “jewellery essentials”. Whatever the occasion or outfit… they’re guaranteed to make you look stylish.
