What jewellery suits my dress? Create a stylish look, follow these 4 simple rules to match the perfect jewellery with your dress – and create a stylish look for any occasion.
1. Strapless Neckline
This dress shape 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.
⭐ Pssst… Top tip! These 3 essential jewellery pieces are great go-to items for almost any look. You can get away with wearing them on any occasion, because they are so simple and classic. They also transform effortlessly from day to evening.
2. High Neckline
You should avoid adding a necklace to a high necked dress. 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 drop earrings, hoops or chandelier-style earrings to highlight and define your face and give length to your neck.
Finally, to balance the look, wear a wide, sparkling statement 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.
