You've chosen the perfect dress and now it's time to accessorize! The neckline of your dress plays a key role in choosing the best accessories. Here are some examples to help you choose the right style to compliment your gown.

If your Gown is Strapless

This is an extremely versatile neckline and just about anything goes. Try a princess or choker style such as these:

If your Gown has a Sweetheart Neckline

Also an extremely versatile neckline. Princess styles (like the ones above) look beautiful however a Y-style or drop style necklace looks particularly lovely with this neckline as it follows the sweetheart shape.

If your Gown is Halter Style

A Y-style or Pendant necklace works beautifully with this style. If you'd like to highlight your shoulders another option is to skip the necklace and go with a beautiful pair of drop earrings.

If your Gown has a V-neck

It looks beautiful if you follow the shape of the neckline with a Y-style or drop necklace. If your gown is also low in the back a style with backdrops will highlight this.

If your gown is Off-the-Shoulder

If you would like to wear a necklace, a choker or princess style necklace is best. However, this look can be stunning if you forgo the necklace and go for some dramatic earrings paired with a beautiful bracelet.
