A statement necklace isn't the only way to dress up your best looks.
It's party time! You've got your dress all picked out, but it's the jewelry that's really going to make or
break your look. Whether you choose to wear a little jewelry or a lot, you want to make sure that you
are putting the emphasis in the right place. Here are a few tips for accessorising every dress:
A v-neck top is flattering on most body types and provides the perfect frame for a longer pendant necklace. To accessorise, find a necklace that mimics the shape of this versatile neckline. Just make sure the chain isn't so long that the necklace gets lost in your cleavage.
With your upper body all covered up, you need something to break up your look. Large statement necklaces can start to feel a little heavy, but layered necklaces allow more of the dress to show thus, adding interest to your upper body without completely dominating your outfit.
Because the cowl neck is already designed to stand on its own, subtle jewelry is better. Necklaces worn with a cowl neck should always hit above the neckline. This design is also a great opportunity to rock those oversized, dramatic earrings and let the fabric of the shirt stand alone.
Shirts that button offer two very different options when it comes to accessorising. Option one is to button the shirt all the way up and add a dramatic statement piece over the shirt and under the collar. The second option is to open the buttons and accessorise on the inside of the collar with a subtle pendant. A good rule of thumb here is to make sure the necklace falls above the top button or deliberately further below it.
These are perfect for long necklaces! Shorter designs coupled with turtlenecks can make it look like you’re suffocating. Longer chains elongate and open the ensemble, creating a gorgeous combination!
As with the crew neck, these higher necklines work great with longer necklaces. You can also layer with shorter pieces to add bulk to your ensemble.
