Off-shoulder style: The right jewellery for SS15's must-wear neckline

This season is all about off-the-shoulder necklines, with tops and dresses featuring this chic style. Fitting in with the 1970s trend, this fashion creates a pretty day look, as well as an elegant evening style, making it the ideal choice as we head into the warmer months.

Whether you go for the Bardot-style neckline - which features a straight off-the-shoulder look - or a more stylised version, it is important to consider the type of jewellery you are going to wear. After all, you want to make a statement of this neckline so need to choose jewellery that complements it rather than overshadows it.

With this in mind, earrings are the best choice. Wearing earrings with off-the-shoulder looks helps to keep the focus on your neckline. It will create an open look that helps to elongate your neck in a flattering way.

You'll also have more options if you team earrings with this necklace style, as you can go for subtle or statement, depending on the overall style you are aiming for. 

Small earrings, like these silver knot drop earrings will add a touch of glitter to your look, ensuring the main aspect of your outfit is your neckline. The subtle look will also mean you can wear other jewellery items, like rings and bracelets to complete your ensemble.

For a slightly bolder look that is still great for day, try adding a touch of colour to your outfit without going over-the-top. These gold and turquoise bead drop earrings are bang on-trend and will look stunning with white and flowing fashions to create a summer boho look.

Team them with other turquoise pieces and gladiator sandals for the perfect outfit for any summer day.

If you want to really glitter in the evening, you can also wear off-the-shoulder necklines with sparkling statement earrings. Something like this pair of silver-tone and crystal chandelier earrings could be the ideal choice for party dresses that rock this style. Team them with a smoky eye or statement lip and your outfit will be complete.
