I love jewelry but I'm not very adventurous when it comes to accessorizing an outfit. I would love to be more bold with my jewelry choices but I have no idea how to start. I was raised with a vague (but strict) set of fashion guidelines like "stick to classic lines" and "don't mix patterns or textures." I am paralyzed by the thought of branching out of my comfort zone.
Which is where all of you stylish readers come in. I need help accessorizing my little black dress. Unfortunately, I can't find my dress online but it has a similar neckline and cut to the Banana Republic dress below (though my dress is all black and is shorter.)
My dilemma is this:
Do I wear a long necklace that drapes below the neckline like this gorgeous piece from Savage Salvage?
Or do I wear a short necklace that falls above the neckline? If I keep it short, do I stick with delicate and demure like this necklace by Roundabout Designs?
Or do I go chunky and bold like the blue lagoon necklace by Denise Jewelry Designs?
My solution so far has been to wear the dress with no necklace at all, which I think we can all agree is not so much a solution as it is a shameful display of my laziness. I'd love some suggestions - Long? Short? Chunky? Dainty?
