What Type of Necklaces are Appropriate for a Strapless Dress

On their own, strapless dresses are dramatic, stylish, and unique. They are designed to highlight your neck and collarbone, which means they double as the perfect complement for your necklaces. While choosing the right type of necklace to go with your strapless dress, different options will add a touch of brightness to your outfit, without overwhelming it.

Remember, when it comes to accessorizing a strapless dress – less is more.

Chokers or Bib-Style Necklaces

Go for a classic choker necklace that will accentuate your face without taking the focus away from your beautiful dress. Choose according to the occasion and the style you’re wearing. A classic and elegant strapless dress should be paired with a delicate choker necklace, preferably one that’s a thin chain with a small pendant or detail for emphasis. If your dress is more casual, have some fun, and choose a choker necklace with a bolder personality; you want it to be loud and extravagant. Look for a choker necklace that features a chunky necklace chain. 

Another option is to go for a bib-style necklace. They look similar to choker necklaces, but they are often embellished with precious stones for added allure. If you’re unsure how this necklace will look over your strapless dress, consider the length. Some bib-style necklaces will fall right above your neckline, while others will go slightly over your necklace. Think about the style you want to achieve before you choose your necklace.

Long Chains Necklaces

A popular choice among celebrities, long-chain necklaces are a way to bring several layered necklaces to create a striking look. If you’re struggling with finding the right balance, aim to have a pendant-length, one that falls by the chest line, and another one that falls by the waistline. Because layering your long chain necklaces can get messy rather quickly, we recommend clasping them with Necklet to prevent them from tangling and ruining your look.

Pendant Necklaces

Another subtle way to accessorize your strapless necklace is by adding a dainty little pendant necklace. Whether you choose a chunky necklace chain, a leather strap, or a thin chain, pendant necklaces are meant to bring all the attention to your neckline. When paired with your favorite strapless dress, there’s no doubt your neckline will get all the attention.

Other rules of thumb to remember when accessorizing your strapless dress:

  • Consider its pattern: if your dress has a busy design, choose simple jewelry. A delicate choker necklace or a thin pendant necklace will do.
  • Remember the hair: Up-dos will reveal your jewelry at its best. If you wear your hair down, aim for long-chain necklaces that will add drama without overpowering your neckline.

No matter the occasion, a gorgeous strapless dress deserves some spectacular jewelry to go with it. And a Necklet in the background to make sure your favorite necklaces remain untangled.
