So, it looks like you have found the perfect dress for prom. Unfortunately, finding the dress is only half the battle, since there are so many other things that you need to consider after that. You have shoes to worry about as well as the hairstyle. And then there are the accessories. Do you wear a tiara or a headband? Should you go for bracelets or rings? Should you wear a brooch? These are only some of the overwhelming questions that you will be faced with. How you accessorize your prom outfit plays a major role in how the final look turns out. The right accessories will make you look elegant and romantic, but one wrong choice and all that hard work you put into picking out your dream dress goes down the drain. Well, fret not, because we are here to help you out. Read on to find out how you can choose the right jewelry to match your prom dress.
- Prom headbands and tiaras
If you want hair accessories, there is a myriad of headbands and tiaras that you can choose from. But one thing that you need to keep in mind is that it is pretty easy to go over-the-top when it comes to these bejeweled accessories. Make sure you pick a design that is not too loud and complements your dress and your hairstyle well.
Your choice of earrings depends on your hairstyle as well as the details on the top of your gown. If you are wearing a gown with heavy beadwork or embroidery around the shoulders, pick earrings that are small and delicate. If you are going with a strapless gown or one with simple designs on the top, you can pick an eye-catching pair of earrings and make a statement. Also, your earrings should match your hairstyle as well. For instance, if you are planning to wear your hair down in curls, it is best to choose earrings that can shine through your tresses.
When it comes to prom necklaces, the options are endless. From long pearl necklaces to delicate chains and chokers, there is a lot of styles that you can pick. The general rule of thumb is to balance everything. For instance, if you have glitzy earrings on, go for a simple necklace or skip it altogether. Strapless dresses with a sweetheart or straight neckline go well with striking neckpieces as they effortlessly add to the glam.
- Bracelets and rings
As it is with all other types of jewelry, you should pick your bracelets and rings only after you consider the details on your dress as well as the rest of the jewelry you plan to wear. Bracelets are best avoided with long sleeve prom dresses and evening dresses as well as with other heavy jewelry pieces. Rings are much more versatile, which means you can wear them with different looks but only as long as they complement the other pieces.
