Decision Tree: Jewelry to Wear with a Little Black Dress
The Little Black Dress is a staple in almost every woman’s closet. Follow our decision tree to figure out what jewelry will look fantastic with your new dress and style.
Little Black Dress
Start: Is the neckline close to the throat? If no, is the stress strapless? If no, is it a v-neck or a u-shape? If it’s a v-neck, the best jewelry would be a Y necklace, lariat necklace, or a pendant necklace. If it’s a u-shape neckline, the best jewelry would be an 18-inch pearl strand, a station necklace, or a pendant necklace.
If you dress is strapless, and you don’t have long hair, the best jewelry to wear would be dangle earrings, a 16 or 18inch necklace, and bracelets/a big ring.
If your dress is strapless and you have long hair, try diamond studs, 16- or 18-inch necklace, or bracelets and a big ring.
Back to square one: if the neckline is close to the throat, does it have long sleeves? If no, and it doesn’t take advantage of arms, your best jewelry bet is chandelier earrings or a diamond or gemstone fashion ring. If it doesn’t have sleeves, but takes advantage of arms, choose a tennis bracelet, big cuff, or bangles.
If your dress does have long sleeves, are they tight? If not, try dangle earrings or a diamond or gemstone fashion ring. If the sleeves are tight, go for a cuff or bangles over the sleeve.
