Tuesday Tip: Make a Statement

A statement necklace can really take a dress to the next level, from pretty to show-stopping, but it’s the type of accessory that takes some thought.  You’ll want to consider the neckline of the dress as well as the length and size of the necklace.  Big, sparkly pieces can be a great way to dress up a daytime look or take a look from day to night.  Take a look at these options that will have all eyes on you at your next event.


Strapless dresses work really well with statement necklaces where an exposed collarbone can work as a canvas for your jewels.  While almost any style of necklace will look good, bib necklaces are particularly well suited for a strapless silhouette.

High necklines need some baubles too. With this style, there is no need to worry about the length of the necklace, and this time, the dress serves as the canvas for your accessory.

An asymmetrical neckline can be more difficult to pair with a statement piece, but when done right, it can highlight the unique shape of the dress.
