Accessorizing/Styling Challenges (Part 2)

I have a weakness for pretty necklaces, and most of my necklaces are just that...pretty. I do envy women with a collection of statement jewelry* that they use to gorgeous effect. The other day, I met with a gorgeous young woman who dressed up a simple sheath dress with dangling earrings and a sparkly brooch of a slinking leopard on her shoulder. So chic!

With that in mind, for this month's challenge:

You have this simple black dress with a low sweetheart neckline. Do you add a necklace?

1) No - the best styling of this dress is unadorned beauty.

2) Yes - a lovely, classic, pendant. No color, just sparkle.

3) Yes - something silver & simple. A little bit of shine goes a long way.

4) Yes - something gold & bold to add a little bit of warmth to the look.

5) Yes - can you ever go wrong with a simple strand of pearls?

6) Yes - pearls are beautiful, but why be simple?

7) Yes - red, for vibrance.

8) Yes - green, for brilliance.

9) Yes - blue, for elegance.

10) Yes - something with a trendy shape and muted colors.

11) Yes - something with a trendy shape and eye-catching colors.

12) Yes - something that's timelessly pretty. What's wrong with pretty?

*The other day in Chinatown, I saw a gold necklace with a mama pig the size of a plate, with five or six suckling pigs dangling off of her with chains. It was a game-changer. It was such a statement that all other jewelry I have seen since seems extremely undramatic in comparison.
