MAKE A STATEMENT

A modern way to accessorize is to add the fun of bold jewelry to your wardrobe. You can even switch a statement necklace in lieu of a reception dress to stylishly update your look for less. It's also a great way to implement something old, new, borrowed, or blue. If you like this trend, here are some things you should keep in mind:

  • They work best on effortless dresses with open necklines or ones that are strapless, sweethearts, or off-the-shoulders.
  • The more lavish and over-the-top your dress is, the easier you'll want to go on the accessories. The point is to complement and not to overwhelm.
  • Those with shorter necks may want to consider wearing longer necklaces to create an illusion of an elongated neck.

If you're straddling the fence on whether or not you want to jump on this bandwagon, first examine your style. If you're a simple and classic gal and you like simple and classic things, your wedding day probably won't be the best time to experiment with accessories you don't feel comfortable having on. If you love bold jewelry and it fits your personality however, there's no need to shy away from adorning your neckline. I've rounded up some images to show you some ways in which they can be worn.
