The accessories for your dress are just as important as the dress itself but navigating the different options is easier said than done. If you want to dress up or down your long prom dresses for a special occasion, here are four accessory options that you can choose from.
- A classic up-do can be accented with a jeweled headpiece if your dress is otherwise very simple. This is an easy way to add a little bit of glimmer to your overall outfit without taking away from your dress. If you’re sporting one of your favorite long prom dresses for an outdoor event, consider wearing a small hat headpiece that provides a playful look for your otherwise glamorous attire.
- Statement necklace or bracelet. Statement jewelry is all the rage these days. Typically these are classified as jewelry that is a large and chunky and tends to be the focal point of your entire outfit. Anytime you wear a dress that is simple or understated, a statement piece of jewelry can bring it to life.
- Dangling earrings. Dangling earrings are not necessarily the best option for everyday attire. However, with the right kind of dress they can add just a little bit of sparkle. If you have your hair styled in an up fashion and your dress is either a low neckline or strapless or sleeveless, then adding long dangling earrings is the perfect accessory choice.
- Jeweled broch or belt. Another easy way to add a touch of something actually to your formal attire is by adding a brooch or belt. Many of the options available can rest against your hips or be used to break up a solid tone for your dress. As long as they are modest in style and design they will attribute to your outfit instead of taking away from it.
