Tatler Style: How to Elevate Eveningwear With Pearls

When planning an outfit for a formal evening event like the Philippine Tatler Ball, the accessories usually come in the last stage. That doesn’t mean you should neglect this step, as the final touches can either make or break a look. One surefire way to make eveningwear more glamourous is to pair it with elegant South Sea pearls. Jewelmer shows you how it’s done in this simple how-to feature:

1/5 Layer for the better

A basic rule is to accessorise the neck according to the dress’ neckline. For a typical V-neckline, the key is to fill the void with a strand of South Sea pearls. However, you can turn more heads by putting on a longer strand for a layered effect.

2/5 Understand the importance of colour pairing

Pearls essentially go with any colour, but of course, it is still advisable to be mindful of certain colour pairings. If your dress is in warm tones (red, gold, orange, etc.), best to go with the golden South Sea pearls. On the other hand, cool hues (blue, black, silver, etc.) look great with white South Sea pearls.

3/5 Subtle touches go a long way

If the dress has delicate features, complement it with dainty accessories that go together as a set for a unified look. The result is a polished, timeless style that can pass for minimalist but with a decidedly graceful touch.

4/5 Pack a punch

A muted palette might just blend with the rest of the surroundings, so you should count on your accessories to elevate a simple look. Pair a straight neckline with a hefty strand and slip on a statement ring on each hand for just the right amount of bling.

5/5 Know when to skip the necklace

Sometimes, the dress already provides the accessories you need. Other times, the dress might have such a strong neckline that you don’t want to detract from the appeal. In both cases, drop earrings do more than enough to fill the need for accessories.
