Make a statement with accessories

This helpful guide to accessorising will allow you to match the right accessories to the right outfit this party season…

For strapless dresses or tops, go for the wow factor with a statement choker. Chunky jewellery is big news at the moment so don’t be afraid to try something with a bit more impact. Chokers are also great at taking attention away from the boobs, if you prefer to draw attention away from this area. Sometimes however, a strapless number can look better with a bare neckline, so add a chunky bangle or statement earings instead.

V-necks, a deep v-neck looks fabulous with a necklace that falls just short of the v-neck and this WILL draw attention to the boobs. A shallow v-neck on the other hand looks better with a necklace that sits just on the collar bone. As a general rule, pendants often work best with v-necks.

One shoulder dresses, have all they need on the upper body so add jewellery else where when wearing one shoulder pieces. If the top or dress has a lot of detail on or around the shoulders, such as a large corsage, then earings might look too much, so in this case rings and bracelets work best. If the top of the piece is quite simple however, earings can be worn but keep the rest of your jewellery simple.

And finally, choose which accessory is to be the statement piece, as pile on too many statement pieces and someone may mistake you for a Christmas tree!
