You have a special event coming up, and you’re already envisioning yourself with your staple little black dress. It’s reliable, it makes you look stunning, and you can never go wrong with the LBD. But sometimes it can seem a little too — well — boring.
The good news is that adding a little spice to a black dress is easy. Just use these 3 simple rules, and you’ll know exactly how to accessorize a black dress for your next outing.
#1 Add a pop of color with your watch and jewellery
The key to any hit enable is shock and awe. This means you need to add a bit of juxtaposition to your outfit. All the best things in life have a little contrast:
- Sweet and savory
- Big and small, and of course something that shines
- Light and dark
Adding a pop of color from your beautiful watch and jewellery to go with your classic black dress is a simple yet effective way to bring some life to your look.
How many colors you want to add is up to you. For example, you can choose to add an elegant red necklace like this Red Onyx Bead Necklace to brighten things up.
Or, if you really want to turn heads, add a matching red bracelet and these two-tone earrings for an extra color contrast to your LBD.
Jewellery for Black Dress
#2 Wear Statement Pieces
If brightly colored jewellery isn’t your thing, you can still create a bold look by accessorizing it with a statement piece.
Think of the dress as a blank canvas; your jewellery is the work of art. Not all artwork has to be as colorful and vibrant as Monet. Artists like Johannes Vermeer made a statement with their art with pieces like Girl With a Pearl Earring.
The trick to getting people to stop and admire your work is to have one element in your outfit that really stands out. And dangling jewellery is the perfect way to do that when wearing a black dress!
This Starry Collection is exactly the type of jewelry that creates a statement. These elegant chain earrings are made of blue sandstone and synthetic cubic Zircon to give it the glitz and glam you need to make your outfit sparkle.
Our suggestion? Choose a dangly necklace or (not and) earrings as your standalone accessory. This will create an even balance to give attention to both your jewelry and your dress.
Sometimes less is more.
#3 Keep It Simple
On that note, if you want to keep your black dress the center of attention, go for minimalist black dress accessories. For example, a black dress with simple gold accents creates a classy look that never goes out of style.
The Arch Collection, for example, is the perfect jewellery ensemble to go with an LBD. You can get a matching necklace, earrings, and dainty rings, but unique in design to draw attention to the eye.
