What Shoes and Jewelry to Pair With Black Cocktail Dress
How to accessorize a black cocktail outfit?

You can never go wrong with wearing a black cocktail costume to parties. All you have to do is to accessorize your black dress in different ways, and voila! You have different looks for different occasions. Below are some tips on what  jewelry and shoes to match with black cocktail dress:

1. Decide on the earrings- The jewelry that you choose to go with your black cocktail dress often sets the mood of your entire look. When you are wearing a black cocktail dress, go for big and eye-catching earrings. The kind does not matter – dangling, hoops, or simple studs – for as long as they demand attention from those who look upon you. Try not to pick anything small or conservative; a black is a timeless yet subdued color for a dress. Something else in your look needs to stand out.

2. Wear a statement necklace- A classy and attention-grabbing necklace that goes well with your earrings will put a stamp on the look that you are trying to achieve. For a formal event, choose pearls or something similarly timeless. For a bohemian event, use a necklace of more colorful and artsy material.

3. Wear bangles- Again, decide on bracelets that mesh well with all your other accessories – earrings, and necklace. They should speak the same fashion statement. Bangles should also be loud. Go for stacked, edgy bracelets.

4. Choose your shoes carefully- The first thing you should consider when deciding on your footwear is the weather. Wear boots in winter, simple flats or high heels on warmer weather. The next thing to consider is your level of comfort: Can you walk gracefully in four-inch stilettos? If you can’t, opt for low heels or flats.

5. Decide on a handbag- The purse that goes perfectly well with your black cocktail dress depends on the event or party that you are attending. Is it a formal event? Go for a small clutch purse. Is it a trendy, low-key party? Try a cross-body bag.
