Dressing for fun? Wear a cute halter top that ties behind your neck and flashes those gorgeous shoulders when you want a killer party look. Whether it’s a halter dress or a halter top, one little dilemma remains: how to accessorize your strappy outfit. Skip the long or chunky necklace, which can look overcomplicated and fussy when paired with a halter design. The key to getting a head-turning look is to pick just one standout accessory. From a bold cocktail ring to statement earrings, the fashion world is packed with sparkly pieces that won’t take the focus away from your sexy neckline.

Drop Earrings

You can feel a little bare up top when you go without a necklace. Resist the temptation to throw on a choker at the last minute and rock a cute pair of drop earrings instead. Those dainty, dangly earrings will add a bit of sparkle to your upper half without detracting from your halter outfit. If your halter top is casual, try boho-inspired feather earrings to pack a punch to your daytime look. Glam up your occasion halter dress with a sparkly chandelier pair for an effortlessly chic finish.

Cocktail Ring

Inject a little fun and personality into your outfit by rocking a cute cocktail ring. A large statement ring is a surefire way to give your look a touch of style without detracting from your wardrobe choice. A large, black, sparkly cocktail ring is a staple piece that you can rock with a halter of any color. Search thrift and vintage stores for a one-off design that will really give your outfit the edge. If you prefer to keep your jewelry low-key and minimal, a simple solitaire ring is a foolproof option.

Chunky Bangles

No fashionista’s jewelry box should be without some killer wrist candy. Pile on an array of pretty bangles before stepping out of the house. Beautiful bracelets will add a flirty edge without overcomplicating your look. Try a cute charm bracelet to accessorize your halter for day or evening occasions. A variety of gold, bronze and wooden bangles will give your outfit a vintage, eclectic feel. A diamond or sparkly single bracelet should be every gal’s go-to piece for glam evening parties.

Embellished Hair Slides

Don’t be fooled into thinking the only way you can inject a little sparkle is with traditional bracelets, rings and earrings. Give your look a modern twist with some seriously sexy hair slides. A jewel encrusted slide nestled near your chignon is a simple way to finish off your outfit.
