Nothing works harder in your wardrobe than a great dress. But to transform it from good to great, you need to work with the right accessories. Our guide will help you to pair them like a pro.
1. The sweetheart neckline dress
This pretty and
classic neckline works perfectly for a statement necklace. Try costume jewels
or bright graphic cubes – or perhaps go tribal for something really unique to
you and eye-catching. Just choose a slightly shorter chain so that it doesn’t
hang over the neckline and into your cleavage. You’ll know that it’s the right
length when the necklace draws the eye to your face. If you can’t find
something that suits lengthwise, make your own!
2. On-trend tank dresses
dresses are naturally edgy and cool. So keep the look flowing with a sparkly
ear cuff and perhaps a hand of layered rings. Think fun, sparkling and original
to keep those compliments flowing. Pair your dress and accessories with some
killer heels too or go for boots for a more street-styled finish.
3. A sexy backless dress
style is naturally stunning, so draw attention to a neat waist with a beaded
waist belt. You can have fun with a tie or buckled style, maybe with sequins or
other embellishments for a different kind of accessory. Just keep any other
jewellery that you choose as simple as possible for this look to really work.
4. Halter necks
The fancy neck
finish of these timeless dresses means that you’ll already be looking great around
the shoulders and ears, so don’t make things too busy with pendants or dangly
earrings. Instead when wearing your purple maxi dress, have fun with stacking
bracelets so that you can show off those graceful arms. Have fun, too, with
Indian style bangles or plenty of gold costume bracelets. Find a purple maxi dress available at AX Paris.
5. A high neck with sleeves
Also known as the crew neck, this style of dress will cover up your top half but typically have a shorter skirt. The good news is, as well as showing off your pins to great effect, it’s also the perfect dress to pair with layered necklaces. Go wild with a series of chains in different lengths or a multi-strand necklace in a warm metal with plenty of visual interest.
