Which Jewelry is Appropriate for a Black Dress? 

Before going out, the age-old question that one must ask before standing in front of the mirror and deciding on their outfit is obvious: “which women’s jewelry will work with my black dress?” Fortunately for you, the black dress offers a blank palette to which just about any jewelry can be added.
The little black dress is a fashion icon, and it remains a staple to this day. It fits just about everybody, can be worn to many events, and never goes out of style.
If you are looking to change up the look a little bit, you can add jewelry and other accessories to adjust the formality and style of your particular outfit. This is why you must consider your jewelry before going out. Here’s what you need to know. 

Type of Occasion
  • If you are going to a formal event, you can go the classic route with a beautiful set of pearls. If you don’t want to stand out quite as much, choose something simple yet fine.
  • If you are going out for a night on the town, choose something that will shine under the lights of the night. The sheen from your jewelry will not go unnoticed when others see your look.
  • If you are going for a more casual vibe, look to add brown earthy colors.
  • For work scenarios, try not to be as flashy as you might be when you go out on the town. Instead, choose fine pieces like bracelets and rings, perhaps even a simple necklace.
  • If you are just looking to have a dressed-up casual day, add some pizzazz to your outfit with some sources of color or statement jewelry. Another cool look is the long necklace, which is very trendy right now.

If your black dress is already ornately decorated, keep your paired jewelry simple. Maybe think about adding a simple set of earrings or a more basic bracelet. Also, consider sticking to one material color to avoid appearing gaudy.
Balance is key when choosing jewelry, so don’t choose more than one chunky item. Find one statement piece that you really like, and work around that to complete your look.
If you have long earrings on, don’t wear a necklace. Wearing a necklace will just be too much.
Material matching is another thing to remember in addition to color matching. Make sure that all of your accessories are matching when it comes to their material and quality.
If you want to go over the top with your outfit, add a fancy touch like a tiara or a diadem to really take it to the next level.

You can’t go wrong when it comes to matching with black. This is why the little black dress is so useful and important to your wardrobe. That being said, some colors just don’t look as good. Avoid navy blue and brown when wearing black, but just about everything else is fair game.
If you want to look a little more dapper, choose some gold or silver jewelry to make yourself look a little more expensive.
If you want to stand out and be a little bit creative, add something with color to differentiate yourself. Bright colors like red, blue, emerald green, yellow, or orange are sure to earn you some great looks during your day.

When choosing a dress, remember that the neckline you choose will definitely limit the number of choices you have in the jewelry department.
  • For the most flexibility, a simple jewel neckline means you can wear just about any length of necklace. One style to avoid here is a choker.
  • A variety of necklaces also look good with a scoop or square neckline. To look best, ensure that your necklace is shorter or longer than your dress neckline.
  • Chokers and other short necklaces look best with strapless dresses.
  • Pendants tend to accentuate the v-neck, which makes them best for v-shaped necklines. 

Body Type
When considering your jewelry, body type must be taken into account. Choose jewelry that best compliments you, not necessarily jewelry that amplifies your body type. Larger pieces are in play if you are curvy, but they might seem over the top on a smaller frame. Also, taller women can get away with wearing longer necklaces than their shorter counterparts.

Final Words
Black dresses are known for their utility, and that is why they remain so popular to this day. You don’t really need to stress about matching with the color, so you have the freedom to play around with jewelry and other accessories. Hopefully, this set of guidelines can help you to find the perfect combination of dress and jewelry for your next night on the town.
