How do you accessorize a long dress?
You can accessorize a long dress by focusing on the key details of the dress and then deciding what to accentuate. For long dresses with plunging necklines, layer on a rhinestone lariat and finish off the look with sleek stiletto heels. For lace and satin dresses, be sure not to take away from the gorgeous fabric, so simply add jewelry like cubic zirconia studs, a cuff bracelet, and pair of platform heels in a complementing texture or color. If your long dress has a cold shoulder, one shoulder, or off-the-shoulder neckline, a rhinestone choker necklace would pair perfectly to accentuate your neck. For a strapless neckline, try a collar necklace with a statement centerpiece and add on a sparkly evening bag. If your dress has a lace-up back or an open back, style up your pretty tresses and accessorize your hair with an embellished headband or rhinestone bobby pins.
What dress styles are considered long dresses?
There are certain dress styles that have signature features, like silhouettes or hem length, that naturally identify long dresses. Dresses with a trumpet hem or a mermaid silhouette are typically seen on long bridal or prom dresses that accentuate the feminine figure. Ball gowns are the most formal of long dresses and feature a floor-sweeping design and can have sexy features like high slits that add a stylish detail as you move. Flowy maxi dresses can come in casual styles great for the warmer summer months and transition into easy fall apparel you can wear with boots, cropped sweaters, and long sleeve shirts. Formal maxi dresses in chiffon, tulle, or satin make for a bridesmaid dress she'll love wearing again. Long casual and/or maxi dresses in knits or cotton blends that fall right above the ankle can be seen as business casual attire and when paired with a chic blazer or cardigan make an effortless work outfit.
