The most obvious bridal accessories you’ll wear on your wedding day are your engagement ring and wedding band. But in terms of additional jewelry, it’s up to you to decide what looks best with your dress. For example, a necklace can look great with a strapless neckline, but might not work well with a detailed illusion neckline. Our best advice is to avoid going overboard with the jewelry: one or two carefully chosen pieces is likely all you’ll need to shine.

The quintessential wardrobe staple for any fashionable woman today is the little black dress. You can find a simple black dress with little embellishment, or find one with cut-outs, sparkle, or extra flair. The little black dress can be formal or casual and all you need to do is change your accessories. If you're bored of black, spice up your wardrobe with a little red dress and effortlessly grab the attention of the entire room. JCPenney has your style, so find the dress for you.
And if your gown is halter (or reverse halter), think about what's best for a shoulder-baring style: Skip the necklace and focus on dressing up your tresses. Headbands are a great way to add panache to your wedding updo, be it a sleek bun or loose ponytail. But if headbands aren't quite your style, try adding some sparkle to your hair with intricate crystal hairpins. If you've got a curly mane, five to seven hairpins is the perfect number, while brides with thinner locks (or shorter hair) need fewer—just two or three pins will do the trick.
Going for a longer length? Maxi skirts are an easy choice for any warm weather outfit. Find these ankle grazing pieces with allover printed patterns, or get a unique look with an uneven high-low hem. For a slightly shorter length, look for the midi version, which hits at mid-calf. But if you’re looking to show off those legs, check out the selection of short skirts for mini, A-line or pencil cuts in trendsetting designs.
You may not realize this, but some metals look better with certain dress colors. As a general rule, ivory is best paired with gold since it highlights the creamy tint of the fabric. For a pure white dress, choose accents in silver or platinum or with pearl detailing—gold may clash with brighter white hues. You can have your pick with a diamond-white gown—this barely off-white color looks amazing with yellow gold, rose gold, silver or pearls. If the dress you chose is already embellished with beadwork, let that dictate the colors of your accessories. For example, if your gown has gold beading, pick a necklace, bracelet or earrings with a gold base.
