    Should I wear a necklace with a lace dress?

    After an amazing response to my last question about what to wear at home, I have another conundrum for you all!! I am wearing a navy lace dress on Saturday night -you know the sort, with a built in camisole, and it has a V neck like Katherine's wedding dress - do I wear a necklace with this, and if so what type? I like trendy stuff so please don't suggest pearls or a subtle silver chain!!

    I think something sparkly on the navy lace would look good.

    Hello Makeupmad,

    I would give the necklace a miss, and instead wouldwear some really faboulous trendy ear-rings.

    Totally with Plasmo on the ear-rings. Tried and tested as recommended by my mother-in-law who is very knowledgeable in these things. I would also go with a nice dress ring on your finger as opposed to a bracelet. Lace doesn't need anything to 'set it off' as my Mum used to say it's beautiful enough on it's own.
    Have a wonderful time!

    Definitely NO necklace. Just some 'knock 'em dead' earrings. Remember that less is more. You don't want to distract from that wonderful feminine neckline - Have a good night xxx

    I kinda thought along the lines of dangly sparkly earrings and no necklace, so it was good to get your views on this!! Thanks SO much. And what a good idea about a dress ring and no bracelet - hadn't thought of that. Excellent. Will report back .....

    Glad you chose the earrings makeupmad and there are some gorgeous dress rings about at the moment, a simple but dressy watch might be nice.

    Hi Good evening!

    i think it will really look really outdated and ugg, as laces are meant to compliment a outfit. so to wear a neckline with lace attached is not recommended.
    just keep it simple silly. have a good day!

    I wouldn't recommend to go with necklace. If you want to wear a necklace then try some type of gem stone necklaces that are quite simple, especially suitable to you.
