If only had to choose a dress that would instantly make a girl look beautiful, it must be the one shoulder dress. One-shoulder dresses have always been the sexiest answer to an elegant dress, for reasons such as they flatter the shoulder and need little additional accessories. You don’t need a lot of accessories because the one shoulder dress does that all for you. In fact, with so many different choices in one shoulder styles, you will have a hard time choosing just one!
With one shoulder dresses, the neckline can be flaunted without having to worry about extra necklaces or earrings. The style makes it perfectly possible for you to wear almost any kind of jewelry, from big jewels to simple yet nice bracelets. And when you choose a color that complements the dress color, your jewelry can be bold and striking, while still remaining subtle. If you want to go for a subtle look, go for a nude color such as pale green, or a pale blue.
The best way to accessorize is through the use of smaller bracelets and necklaces. For example, if you are wearing a one-shoulder dress with an open, V-neck line, you can wear a three-stone cluster of small cufflinks or a set of silver or gold medallions. If you prefer a more subtle look, then go for simpler yet more intricate jewelry. For example, if your gown has a V-neckline but you are wearing a sleeveless top, wear a thin silver necklace over the silver necklace on the arm. A golden necklace will create a great contrast with the deep burgundy color of the sleeveless top. Alternatively, a set of tiny chunky earrings in an antique gold or copper will create a very classic look.
The jewelry that you wear should match not only your dress but also your body type and skin tone. For instance, if you have long legs and arms, you should avoid jewelry which is round, square or rectangle as they will overpower the look of your one-shoulder dress. However, if you have long and thin arms, a round diamond heart necklace is ideal because it elongates your neck and draws the eye down your arm. If you want to balance your jewelry between your dress and your body, go for jewelry with an equally long necklace that falls slightly below your collarbone.
Of course, when it comes to choosing the right kind of jewelry for one-shoulder dresses, nothing beats charm bracelets. A large variety of charm bracelets exists in both silver and gold. Go for a simple bracelet which has one or two charms – something simple but beautiful will do just fine. Choker necklaces are another great option for one sleeve dresses. Choker necklaces allow you to adjust the length of your dress and add some mystery to your look.
If you want something more interesting than charms, opt for a necklace or a brooch which is shaped like a heart. Heart-shaped jewelry is also very classic and goes well with one shoulder dresses. You can also choose between gold and silver necklaces. Look for a necklace that matches your dress perfectly. If you are going for a more subtle look, a gold brooch made of Swarovski crystals is a perfect addition to your accessory.
One-shoulder dress fabric is much more versatile than other neckline designs. One-shoulder dresses can look especially chic when worn with halter-necked tops or with halter-style blouses. The key is to choose necklaces or brooches which complement your dress fabric without blocking its natural lines. For example, one-shoulder gowns can look absolutely gorgeous when they are worn with spaghetti straps. Straps which jut out at the sides or ones that hang down are not flattering for such a figure-flattering dress.
You might also like to wear a longer necklace which drapes down your neck just enough to show a few strands of hair. You can also go for a simple but elegant one shoulder dress, which does not feature any elaborate neckline. A thin yet detailed necklace is a perfect choice for this kind of dress. As long as you are not wearing an overly long necklace, you can ensure that your neckline will not be blocked by your clothing. Long and elaborate necklaces are perfect for one-shoulder dresses which are meant to flow from one shoulder to another.
