Necklaces: Simple or bold? To Wear Or Not To Wear?

You can wear a simple necklace that matches your prom dress or opt for something a little more interesting.

  • If you’re wearing a strapless dress, you can wear a long necklace that hangs down in the front or back of your dress.
  • If you’re wearing a short-sleeved or sleeveless dress, you can choose a shorter necklace that sits just above the neckline of your prom dress.
  • If you’re going for something different, try a necklace with a large pendant on it or one that has lots of sparkles.
  • If you’re looking for something more subtle, go for a thin silver chain and keep the pendant small.

You can also choose to wear no necklace if you don’t want to add any more details to your outfit.

Statement Earrings vs. Simple?

Earrings are an essential accessory because they can draw attention to your face and give a polished look to your outfit, making you stand out from the crowd.

In addition, earrings can serve as a subtle way to show off your style and taste. Some people prefer particular earrings, such as asymmetrical earrings or statement earrings, while others may prefer smaller or larger earrings. Whatever earring you like, it’s always essential to have a pair that matches your style.

If you’re looking for something with a little more sparkle, go for studs or a pair of dangling earrings that match your prom dress. You can also accessorize your prom dress with small hoops or even wear studs in both ears.

Bracelets. Match And Blend With Other Accessories. Don’t Clash.

There are several bracelets, including bangles, cuffs and even watch bracelets! All come in so many different colors and styles! You can try bracelet cuffs if you don’t want anything around your wrist!

An arm cuff or bracelet with rhinestones adds more sparkle to your look! Matching your bangle, watchband, or bracelet with the color of your prom dress creates a ‘continuous line’ in your look.

If you have a bracelet with gemstones or crystals on it, you can wear it along with any outfit, but if you have a silver bracelet or a gold one, make sure this matches your prom dress colors so that it doesn’t look out; of place!

You don’t have to match the color exactly; instead, make sure it complements the colors in your outfit and blends well together to complement each other instead of clashing.

Rings – how to balance rings with other jewelry/accessories

You can skip out on wearing a ring if you’re already wearing other jewelry. However, if you must wear rings, consider these tips:

  • Wear one small sparkly ring on your right hand
  • If you wear more than one ring, create contrast by having them in different metals. You can also mix up their designs and shapes.
  • All your rings should match each other.

Hair Pieces. From Tiaras To Headbands And Hair Clips.

Which hairpiece should you wear with your hairstyle?

  • Hair clips and pins work perfectly with a goddess hairdo.
  • Headbands can look good with any hairstyle, from low ponytails to high ponytails, loose waves, and a messy updo.
  • Tiaras are the ultimate headpiece. You can wear a tiara with any hairdo. The trick is to make sure the hairstyle is as elegant as your tiara.   

Clutch or Purse

A clutch is generally smaller than a purse and has slots for keeping small items such as money, whereas a purse can carry multiple items such as your phone, makeup, wallet, and keys.

If you’re using a purse for your prom night, make sure it’s comfortable to carry around all night long. If the purse is too big or too small, it could look awkward with the rest of your outfit. Finally, make sure that it has enough room for all of your essentials so that you don’t have to worry about digging through your bag during the evening.

It would be best to consider whether or not the bag will match your dress.


From heels to wedges, sandals, and flats, the shoe department is one area where you are spoilt for choice. Just make sure you pick a subtle pair of shoes because if you choose too flashy shoes, they could distract from all of the other accessories on your outfit.

Your shoes should also be comfortable enough to dance the night away in them. Wedges or a pair of cute sling-back kitten heels or flats are comfortable and stylish! Don’t be afraid to accessorize your shoes. If you can’t stay away from sparkly things, you can enchant in shoes with rhinestones or crystals.

Other Helpful Tips

How to decide on the color of your accessories

Do you want your accessories to match the rest of your outfit, or do you want them to stand out? A bright pop of color will look great on an outfit with lots of white, light, or neutral tones. On the other hand, if you’re wearing bolder colors, choose darker tones and details to break up the look.

Are you trying to decide between gold and silver? Here’s a special tip: pale colors look best with gold jewelry, while dark-colored dresses look good with silver accessories.

How to decide which accessories you need

Less is always more when it comes to the number of accessories you need. If you wear a statement jewelry piece, you might not need to wear any additional jewelry.

If your necklace, earrings, and bracelet come as a set, you don’t need to add more jewelry, as doing so will only ruin the wow effect of your jewelry set.

Stud earrings tend to go well with a matching ring. In addition, if you are wearing a ring, you may not need a bracelet and vice versa.

How to pick accessories that compliment your dress material

The material of your prom dress is also an essential factor when choosing the right accessories. For example, Silk dresses typically work better with pearl necklaces, while satin gowns look great with silver accessories.

It’s also important to keep in mind the shape of your face when choosing accessories that complement your face shape. For example, round-shaped faces look best with heart-shaped accessories, while statement necklaces look great on long faces.

Final Words On How To Accessorize Your Prom Dress

Accessories are attractive, and we understand why you might want to wear all of your favorite ones for your prom. But it’s always better to exercise caution and go for a polished look.

Here are some more helpful accessorizing tips:

  • A Corsage can substitute for a bracelet.
