Some women struggle to find the right dress or the right shoes, but after agonizing over which dress is best, you still need to accessorize. This event is a big deal, and you want to make a statement.
Don’t just throw on your favorite necklace or pair of earrings. Pus some thought into your look to make sure you emphasize the right features. If you found the perfect dress, but you’re stressed about which jewelry will look best, here are a few ideas for the most popular types of formal dresses.
How to Find The Perfect Accessories for Your Evening Dress
A dress with a deep V neck leaves a blank canvass and the perfect backdrop for a long pendant necklace. Experiment with the perfect length so your necklace hangs elegantly on your chest instead of getting lost in cleavage.
Your sweetheart neckline lends itself well to a large, statement neck piece. Make sure it’s short enough to draw attention to your face. It shouldn’t overlap your cleavage, but it shouldn’t be a choker. Try something with a large pendant or a chunky design.
Halters are very busy by the neckline, so wearing a necklace or large earrings makes your face look too busy. Give your arms the attention they deserve in a halter by stacking bracelets or bangles or wearing an eclectic array of chunky armbands with a bold watch.
Tank dresses flaunt loose and flowing lines, giving you a light, airy look. Big jewelry makes this type of dress too heavy, so instead, bring attention up to your face with layered rings. It won’t make you look too busy, and it will balance out the length and flow of the dress.
Your backless dress can be paired with a glamorous belt to draw attention to your exposed back. Metal and jeweled belts add style to the front of your dress and won’t take the attention away from the real focal point.
When you cover your upper body completely, it creates an elegant, but monotone look. You can break up the look with layered necklaces. These types of necklaces cover a lot of real estates, but they don’t look bulky. They add interest to your neckline without drawing too much attention away from the rest of your outfit.
Dresses that reveal one shoulder draw their beauty from being uneven. Try wearing a cuff or a bold statement bracelet on the wrist of the shoulder that’s uncovered. If you don’t have any embellishments on the shoulder of your dress, you can also balance out your look by wearing simple, dangle earrings.
Strapless dresses expose your arms and chest, leaving room for a dramatic pair of earrings to frame your face and leave your shoulders exposed and unobstructed.
Find the neckline or style that most closely resembles your dress and commence the hunt for the perfect accessories to complement your evening dress and draw attention to your best features.
