Don’t you hate it when you are already running late for an event, but you are clueless about your accessories? It took months to master the 5-minute no-makeup makeup look and 3-min shower routine.
Despite that, you cannot figure out which accessory goes the best with your cocktail dresses. But worry not because here is a complete guide to matching your jewelry with different necklines.
The classic V-neck
The beauty and essence of the v-neck are that it elongates your neck by narrowing down at the end. Similarly, you have to choose a necklace or pendant that creates a V inside the neck boundary.
If you are wearing a V-neck party dress, ensure that the length fits perfectly. Avoid going with something broader and longer than the V-neck.
When it comes to dresses with round, crew, or scoop necklines, you have to keep the same rule in your mind. Wear a neckpiece that stays closer to your neck. Avoid pointy V-shaped neck accessories and instead, go for round ones.
Interestingly, many people consider crew necklines one of the most flexible and versatile designs. You can amplify your cocktail dress game with a good neckpiece and minimal accessories.
Try to look for something that is either longer or shorter than the neckline. Moreover, avoid designs like chokers or long V-shaped ones.
Halter neck party dresses
Halter necks bring more focus to your shoulders and make them appear slim. However, this particular design of cocktail dresses can make choosing an accessory a hard nut to crack.So what you can do is focus on the width of your neck piece instead of its length. Go with something that is angular and has a narrow width. Avoid statement pieces like bib necklaces and short ones.
Cocktail and party dresses with a sweetheart neckline are something that every woman adores. It gives a modern and elegant look for the evening. So if you want to spice up your outfit, pair a neckpiece that enhances those sweetheart curves.
For this, you can go with a mid-length necklace to draw more attention and emphasis to the neckline. Furthermore, try to avoid sharp angles as they create disruption and destroy the beauty of the sweetheart neckline.
If there is something as popular as the sweetheart design of party dresses, it is the cowl neckline. The design brings all the attention to its uniqueness and becomes the star of the show.
For such designs, short and simple accessories are the best. The length of your necklace should not exceed that neckline. However, if your cowl neck is a little too high, adding a pair of earrings will do the job.
Things to remember
Before deciding on the accessory, you must ask yourself a few questions. What do you expect from the neckpiece? Do you only want to compliment your dress or make it the highlight?
What is the shape of your neckline? Are the necklace and earrings going with the design well? Once you get answers to these and other questions, you can make a better decision.
