What Kind of Jewelry Should You Wear with a Black Dress?
When it comes to pulling the perfect outfit from your closet for a night out, a little black dress is a timeless option that is flattering on virtually any body type and is a practical, yet always fashionable choice. Though black is versatile, it does call for one thing to make it truly stand out: jewelry!
So how do you go about choosing black dress jewelry? This decision may seem overwhelming at first because a black dress can be paired with just about anything!
Where do you begin? Here a few tips that may help you pick the right jewelry for your style and taste… that will also complement your black dress.
Make A Statement
Wearing a little black dress is the perfect opportunity to make a statement with your jewelry. If you have a particular piece of jewelry that is a statement maker – an oversized gemstone cocktail ring, a long bib necklace, or a dramatic stack of bangles, a black dress is an ideal canvas to put those pieces on display!
What to Consider
There are a few factors to consider when choosing what jewelry to wear with a black dress…
For a formal occasion…
- - Style your dress with a classy pearl necklace and pearl earring combination
- - Try on a pair of gemstone chandelier earrings or gemstone drop earrings for a burst of color
- - Stay in line with the black theme by adding dramatic and bold black onyx jewelry
For a casual occasion…
- - Lighten things up by adding bright colors with coral jewelry or turquoise jewelry
- - Pile on a stack of bangles for flirty and feminine fun
- - Choose a bold cocktail ring to gain some attention
For a deep, V-neckline…
- - Choose a pendant necklace on the longer side (try 18" and up), that mirrors the same v-neckline
- - Add a long chain necklace, station necklace or lariat pull-through design
For a square or scoop neckline…
- - Choose a necklace length that is either shorter or longer than your neckline to keep things neat
- - To go shorter, try a choker necklace or short pendant necklace (try between 14"-16")
- - To go longer, try a long station necklace, rope chain necklace or layers of long beaded necklaces
For a strapless dress…
- - Stand out and accentuate your neck and shoulders with a bold choker, or skip the necklace and go for long, dramatic chandelier earrings or long linear earrings
For a halter-top dress…
- - Since a halter neckline takes the place of a necklace, add a chic pair of drop earrings or a charming bangle bracelet or cuff bracelet to complete the look
