How To Accessorize a Black Dress? 

The iconic little black dress made famous by Coco Chanel has now become an essential of every women’s wardrobe.

Classic, bohemian or sophisticated, each woman possesses at least one version of the traditional black dress in her dressing room.

The perks of this timeless piece? It can be worn day or night, at every occasion, from casual to formal. How? Thanks to the accessories, and more precisely, the jewels you choose you goals will be achieved!

Necklaces, bracelets and earrings will dramatically update your black dress! Discrete or remarkable, glamorous or rock & roll, but always elegant.  Just like the little black dress, Denaive’s jewels are designed to accompany you forever … Let’s see which style of jewelry will best accessorize your black dress.


What to Wear with a Black Dress: The Choice of Color   

The black dress saying is that “it goes with everything”! Its neutral non-color becomes the backdrop of your outfit. It is precisely the accessories that will reveal its true purpose: updating its basic nature.

No limits here! Regarding the color of your jewels: you will be able to let your creativity go wild!  The choice of colors will depend solely on your desire & the style you wish to give your outfit of the day.

Black sometimes tends to stark you appear more than necessary. Our mother-of-pearl infused resin by Dominique Denaive will definitively enlighten your black dress. Soft pink, white, beige, grey will reflect the light and counterbalance the slightly dull effect of the black color. At best, wear them close to the face, like a pair of clip earrings or a collar necklace.


Wear dark colored jewels to give a sophisticated feel to your black dress. These colors will work best at parties or any more formal occasion like weddings. For instance, you can create a retro-glam outfit by wearing a mother-of-pearl bib necklace and a pretty ring with a straight dress.

Whether you are at office or at a more casual event, go for the classic neutral tones. While remaining discreet, they will enhance your black outfit.


On the other hand, opting for warm and bright colors will bring a touch of originality and cheerfulness to your look of the day. Freely combine pastel colors, red, yellow or bright orange. These colors are perfect to style up a bohemian chic modern and vitaminized look.


The little black dress provides an ideal backdrop for multicolored jewelry.

A very popular choice in summer. Think to match your shoes, bags and jacket with one of the shades in your multicolored jewel.

Pick your Jewelry According to the Shape of your Dress.


The choice of your designer jewelry will depend on your black dress cut. Your dress neckline shape will influence your necklace choice.


With a turtleneck dress, choose a long necklace: a single strand of resin beads for the day, a drop pendant on a gold chain for the evening.


With a V-neck or a boat neck, wear a shorter necklace in a larger size: a choker for example, or a collar that will bring personality to your dress.


If you wear a strapless decollete dress, add a bib necklace. It will fabulously highlight your cleavage. The necklace will be your only accessory! Bet on a pair of plain shoes for a sweet match!


Don’t forget the sleeves: a stack of bracelets or a gorgeous cuff will update your charming sleeveless black dress.

Go Wild with your Jewelry Sets!

Don’t be afraid of too much joy! Overload your figure by adding rings, earrings and bracelets. More is the rule of our elegance! Therefore, you can combine more than two chunky jewels within your outfit.

To accessorize your little black dress with elegance and opulence, play the subtle game of balance. Or, opt for a single imposing jewel: a huge pendant necklace, a large cuff or a colorful cocktail ring.


For a chic and effortless daytime look, rely on your bracelet stack and allow you imaginations to go wild, mixing colors, textures and shapes! In summer, mix several matching colors or to wear multicolored pieces that will definitely spice up your look.
