You have your dress, shoes, and makeup all done. Now, your goal is to pick out the appropriate accessories to bring your look together. The right accessories add a nice effect on your look instead of leaving some areas bare. Accessories can add class and elegance and give your look a nice pop.
When it comes to jewelry, it helps if you select jewelry that not only goes with the overall theme you are hoping to achieve with your dress and hairstyle, but also something that you would wear after the prom as well. You do not have to choose jewelry that matches your dress, it is more important to choose pieces that compliment your entire ensemble. Pearls are always a wise selection as they are elegant and beautiful while rarely being garish. They are also friendly to budgets that may be stretched a bit thin from the purchase of a prom dress.
Your hairstyle should be considered when selecting your jewelry also. If you have long hair that you are wearing down, you will need earrings that are bold and make a statement. Hoops and chandelier style earrings work really well in this particular situation. Be sure you don't overdo the accessorizing thing by pairing these bold earrings with bold necklaces and bracelets; you only need one piece of 'loud' jewelry. If you are going for an updo, there are many wonderful jewelry options available. For these hairstyles, studs work wonderfully and allow for bolder choices in necklaces while drop earrings also look great with this hairstyle and call for keeping other jewelry a little simpler.
