Hi there ladies,
I haven’t been around in a long time but I’m trying to figure out what style necklace to get for my bridesmaids and I’m having a hard time deciding. The girls are going to be wearing a one shoulder lace dress (I’ll post a picture a little lower) and it’s in a dark grey/pewter color. I have a few ideas so far and I would love to have some input about what you ladies feel is the best looking.

I would stay away from grey pearls with a grey dress as the greys might not match. Either classic white or the last silver option. Keep it simple so the glamorous one is you!

I wore this dress in a friends wedding and we skipped necklaces and did bold earrings so it didn’t take away from the neckline.

Whatever they would like or no necklace at all. You get some discretion on the dress and at most a suggestion on color of shoes likely to be owned. Even if you make a gift of a necklace, accessories, shoes, hair and makeup, these are all properly personal choices.

I wouldn’t wear any necklace at all with the one shoulder strap, I think it would look weird and uneven!

Any necklace with one shoulder is gonna look very funny… just my opinion

Recommend you to stay away from this fashion mistake. A necklace shouldn’t be worn with this one shoulder dress. A bracelet on the right wrist is the correct jewelry for this dress.

I wouldn’t wear a necklace with a one shoulder neckline. Opt for pretty earrings instead and maybe a bracelet.

Yeah, I was gonna vote no necklace because a necklace will obscure the pretty lace detail of the one-shoulder strap. I would instead consider getting them pretty bracelets or earrings if all of your bridesmaids have their ears pierced!

Agree with PPs – no necklace for an asymmetrical neckline one shoulder dress. That would be a lot going on in that area and defeats the purpose of choosing neckline with such strong details in the first place.

Another vote for no necklace-it would look awkward with a one shoulder dress

I vote bold earrings instead!

callmebrit : Necklaces often look strange with one shoulder dresses. Skip it.

I agree about the bold earrings choice. If the girls don’t have pierced ears or don’t want big earrings, find a pretty hairpiece that can add some sparkle and perhaps add some sparkle into their bouquets.
And ask your girls what THEY like, don’t just pick something. I didn’t want to get my girls just any old earrings, I wanted something they would like and wear again. I picked 4 options, asked them all which ones they liked the best (same with their clutches), and they all picked the same in the end. AND they all still wear their earrings on the daily, which makes me happy I asked them what they wanted.
