What Jewellery Suits My Dress? 4 Simple Rules

What jewellery suits my dress? Create a stylish look every time by following these 4 simple rules to match the perfect jewellery accessories with your dress.

1. Strapless Neckline

This classic is like a beautiful blank canvass because it leaves your decolletage, shoulders and arms bare. That means you can get away with wearing a necklace, earrings and a bracelet all at once, without it looking “too much”. However, it’s a good idea to keep the jewellery items understated, so they don’t take over the dress. For a simple and elegant approach, accessorise with a pair of diamond studs, a solitaire pendant and a tennis bracelet.

2. High Neckline

You should avoid adding a necklace to a high necked dress because it will look too “busy” and can also make your neck look shorter. This rule also applies to asymmetrical dresses and halternecks. Instead, slip on a pair of long, fabulous drop earrings, hoops or chandelier-style earrings to highlight and define your face and give length to your neck. Finally, to balance out the look, wear a wide, sparkling bracelet on your wrist.

3. Plunging 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 great too with this dress style. If you wear a bracelet, however, make sure it’s not too big to distract from the main attraction: your upper half.

4. Bateau Neckline

A bateau neckline is designed to show off your collarbone. To accentuate this area even more, consider flaunting a short collarette necklace or a medium-to-long necklace that drapes over the collar in 1920s flapper style. For earrings, choose simple studs or button earrings. Finally, to bring the look together, keep your bracelet understated and rock a large statement ring on your hand.
