Since the focus of this dress is all around the neck, there are usually very few details elsewhere, notes Cole. You want to walk the fine line between not competing with the neckline and complementing the rest of the dress. HIs solution? A modern pompadour. "By keeping the sides really sleek, you’re not competing with the neckline," he says. "By adding height to the front, you’re adding intrigue to make up for the rest of the dress." Genius. Just make sure you don't wear your hair down: "No use in covering up that beautifully adorned neckline," he says.
"A blinged-out collar has jewelry integrated into the outfit, so you really don't need to add much," says Rose. With that in mind, she advises you to keep your focus on jackets, shoes, and bags.
