Countdown begins! No matter if it is a cocktail party, annual ball or a gathering at home, dress up well to impress everyone. Gear up into holiday mode and plan ahead on what to wear in attending the year-end events. Let's look at the neckline of the dress and match it with the right piece of jewellery.

Bandeau and Low Cuts
The cute bandeau dresses and sexy low cuts leave so much space for putting on a large piece of neckwear. Think big such as a bib style or chandeliers to make a true statement.

Shift Dress and Turtle Neck
If your choice is a shift dress, turtle neck or a cowl back, a long chained necklace, probably with dangling gemstones or pearls will be the perfect touch up. It will flatter your overall height and body.

V-Neck and Wrap Dress
The dress with a V-neck elongates your neck, drawing all attention to your face and the clavicle. The wrap dress type allows for a more slender look while a pair of diamond dangles will definitely add brilliance and make your total look count.

Unless properly embellished, halter-neck or cross-neck dresses are not suitable for wearing any necklaces because its cluttered features aim to highlight (or hide) the neckline. Stud earrings resting on the ear lopes achieve the right balance with the cross neck fabric for an elegant evening look.
