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

These trendy 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

This 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.
