"I love a multi-textured bun for this, especially with a center part because it lines up with the V-neck for a sleeker look," says Cole. He also adds that because V-neck dresses are typically less dressy than other options, the multi-textured effect lends more detail to the dress. Cole is not a fan of a deep side-part with this particular look — it competes with the center line of the V-neck, creating too many lines and confusing the eye.
"If the best part about a woman is her hair, the second-best part is her cleavage," says Rose. "So don't distract from them with a lot of oversized jewelry. If wearing a necklace, keep it very delicate. Again, focus on the wrists, hands, and the ears."
