One of the most fun parts of buying a beautiful dress is coming up with different ways to accessorize it. The best accessories for your new wardrobe addition will depend on its color and style; for example, too many colorful bangles and baubles on a bold dress design creates an over-the-top look. Here, the fashionistas at The Village Shop in Whitefish, MT, offer five fabulous ways to make your new outfit pop.
Top 5 Ways to Accessorize Your New Dress
1. Chunky Bracelets
Chunky, colorful bracelets in various styles add considerable “wow” factor to a black or neutral-colored casual dress. Avoid necklaces and rings depending on how many bracelets you stack, and opt for smaller earrings to complete the look. Everything else, from your hair accessories to your shoes, should stay neutral to fully emphasize the bracelets.
2. Big Rings
One or two big rings creates an impact when paired with a solid-colored or design-heavy dress. Match the rings to the clothing piece’s color, such as light red rings with a deep red frock, or to a detail, such as the light purple hue on a floral dress. Depending on the style and design, one huge ring may be enough to complete the ensemble.
3. Delicate Necklace
Delicate silver and gold necklaces are the perfect complement to any black halter-style dress. They look good on a plunging neckline because they do not overwhelm the main focal point—the bustline. Pair a simple silver necklace with small silver earrings and bracelets to create a sophisticated, timeless look.
4. Hoop Earrings
Hoop earrings dazzle when you wear them with strapless dresses. Any large earrings work with strapless options, especially if the neckline is simple. Such earrings bring attention to your face and look even more glamorous and eye-catching with a slightly-messy updo.
5. Statement Necklace
While colorful statement necklaces overwhelm halter necklines, they look fantastic on the wide or boat necklines commonly seen on evening and cocktail dresses. If you do not have your ears pierced or intend to wear your hair down with a simple silhouette, a statement necklace is an ideal accessory.
