So you’ve found THE dress, you’ve found your pumps, you’ve found the best hair dresser in town to give you that perfect ‘do, but what about the accessories?! You want to add some finishing touches to complete your flawless wedding day look, but you don’t want to overdo it, right? Girl, I hear ya! I’d be lying if I said that it didn’t depend on your specific dress and your personal style. But, I’ve got a few tips to help lead you in the right direction so that you are looking absolutely fabulous on your big day.
There are two ways you can go when accessorizing your strapless dress: go big or don’t go at all. I am head over heels in love with the idea of a chunky necklace with a strapless dress. It modernizes the look and gives a little personality and youthfulness. If you go with a chunky necklace, wear little stud earrings or no earrings at all! Don’t overdo it!
If you aren’t feeling the chunky necklaces, my advice to you is to wear no necklace at all! There is something innocent, romantic, and elegant about a beautiful strapless dress with no necklace. If you choose to go this route, have fun with chandelier or drop earrings! Just a little touch of sparkle will complete the look, guaranteed.
Sleeves and/or High Necklines
If your dress has sleeves or a high neckline, I say opt out of any necklace-dainty or chunky- and just add sweet little studs, drops, or little chandeliers. Even just a little pair of earrings will take your look from incomplete to perfection.
How to Add Color
Most brides opt for pearls and diamonds, but if you are wanted to add a little more fun to your wedding look, you can add colorful jewelry- but be careful! Colorful accessories are so easily overdone. Don’t go crazy… just a little colorful pair of earrings or a necklace with a splash of color. That is all you need to achieve the look you want.
