Black sequined dresses are inherently fancy. Throw a bunch of sequins on a dress and you really can't help but feel all gussied up.That said, now that you have a whole mess of sequins, what do you do with your jewelry? It can be tough to accessorize a dress that makes a statement all by itself. Learn a few tips to bring out the best in your sequined frock.

Silver and White Gold

A little subtle shimmer works with your sequined dress. Whether you're wearing simple silver or if you want to throw in a diamond embellished earring, the look works well. No, diamonds, no problem! Fake it with rhinestones. It looks just as glam. No need to spend big bucks on the real thing if you don't want to.

Dangly Earrings

Dangly earrings are super cute with your sequined dress. They're equally as fancy as your frock. Just make sure that they're delicate. You don't want a huge, chunky earring distracting attention from your dress. It'll just make your outfit look messy and overly accessorized. So, instead, opt for subtle dangles to work in the glam without taking your look overboard.


A stud earring is simple and classic and makes for the perfect juxtaposition to your sequined dress. Try a pearl if you're looking to go elegant. A tiny pearl stud works just as well as a larger one, so pick your favorite. If you don't want to go with pearls, a metallic stud looks equally as fab, so try silver or gold too.

Get Matchy

Match your black frock with a black earring. This works with any style, so whether you're rocking a dangly earring or a stud, the look works. Even throw in some shimmer here by opting for black diamonds. The rule is still the same: Keep your earrings delicate so they don't overshadow your dress.
