Strapless Necklines: Strapless dresses leave quite a bit of bare skin exposed around the collarbone, so necklaces look beautiful with strapless dresses. For strapless necklines, we recommend going with a choker or shorter length necklace, rather than a medium or long length necklace.

What jewelry looks best with a strapless wedding dress?
The best jewelry to pair with a strapless dress is something sparkly, like diamonds or crystals. As long as the length of the necklace falls between your neckline and the collarbone, or slightly above it, this necklace style will not overpower your dress and will instead balance out your look.
What kind of necklace do you wear with a strapless dress?
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.

How do I make my strapless dress more modest?
If you don’t want to feel exposed in a strapless dress, there are alternatives to feel more modest and covered up. Wear a light, sheer shrug or bolero jacket that compliments the dress while covering your arms, shoulders and back. However, make sure you choose one that conceals the style or design of the dress.
Can you wear pearls to a wedding?
It’s traditional for a bride to wear pearls on her special day, but it’s just as traditional for her friends to don their very best to attend her wedding. Pearls add a touch of classic style, beauty, and grace to any outfit, so they make perfect accessories for formal or semiformal wedding attire.
What earrings go with a strapless dress?
A strapless dress is all about drama. A good rule of thumb is to select jewelry that doesn’t compete with that drama; rather, it enhances it. Choosing one statement piece as a focal point — like a jeweled necklace, elaborate chandelier earrings or a bold bracelet — is a nearly fail-safe way to go.
What earrings do you wear with a strapless dress?
Most women prefer drop earrings that frame their faces and accentuate their features. Drop earrings look gorgeous with a strapless dress, but studs can work too. It all depends on your necklace. If you are wearing a statement necklace, choose studs or delicate drop earrings.
What to wear with a strapless dress to cover shoulders?
Bring along a stole, capelet, shrug or bolero jacket to wear over your dress. Choose a light cover-up made from a luxurious material that complements your dress and covers only your shoulders and upper arms. Avoid heavy wraparound shawls or pashminas that conceal your dress entirely.
How do you keep a strapless bra up?
Hook a removable bra strap on one side of the back of the bra. Strapless bras typically have 4 hooks or sleeves: 2 on the back band and 1 on each cup in the front. You can attach the strap to the hook on either side in the back. Keep the other strap in your lingerie drawer so you can find it easily when you need it.
Can you add long sleeves to a strapless wedding dress?
One question we get asked all the time is “can you add sleeves to any wedding dress?” The answer is yes! Most experienced seamstresses can add sleeves to your wedding dress, regardless of the material or style.
How tight should a strapless wedding dress be?
It should be tight, but not too tight. The last thing you want is a dress that either slips off of you, or is uncomfortably tight on your body. If you are wearing a strapless dress, pay extra-attention to how it fits around your upper body, so that you are absolutely certain that it is supported just fine.
