Try out some of these earring accessorising ideas and find the perfect pairing for you.


Earrings to Match Black

Bright and Bold


One way of bringing out your bright and bubble personality while wearing a simple and sleek black dress is by adding a splash of colour.


Stud earrings are a great way of adding vibrancy to your outfit, without feeling like you’re going too overboard on the accessorising.


Try pairing your dress with some stud earrings featuring a bright gemstone or other material.


Matte stones work particularly well – especially if you want to add a vintage twist to your look! Try coral, turquoise, or emerald earrings to create a bold and striking look.


Breakfast at Tiffany’s


If its Audrey Hepburn-esque glamour you’re looking for, a simple black dress is an ideal place to start.


Look for a mid or floor-length dress with a nipped-in waist and a high neckline.


The dress should be simple, cutting back on the decoration or frills.


To complete this look, find the perfect vintage accessories!


Pearl or diamond earrings are both wonderful options (if you can find earrings that feature both of these stones – even better!)


Pearls are guaranteed to make even the simplest of ensemble look classy and elegant, so pair your diamond or pearl earrings with a timeless pearl necklace and there you have it – that gorgeous Breakfast at Tiffany’s look!

Glamourous and Mysterious


The final fabulous way to dress up a black dress, especially for a special occasion, is by channelling a mysterious and magical aesthetic.


Gemstones such as opals, moonstone, and amethyst all look wonderful alongside a floaty and whimsical floor-length black dress.


You could either look for any of these stones set in stud earrings or, even better, look for some glamourous drop earrings or chandelier earrings to complete the look.


For a mysterious and romantic look, Art Nouveau jewellery is a fantastic option. Art Nouveau earrings often feature moonstone and draw upon natural, floral motifs – this style would add something truly special to your look and give an unexpected twist to the classic black dress style.
