What jewelry goes with a blue dress: best color combos

First, let me tell you that picking the perfect jewelry for your blue dress really comes down to your personal taste. The key is to choose based on your own style and personality.

But keep always in mind the occasion and your dress choice. For example, choosing small and understated silver or gold earrings is perfect for occasions that require more formality or to pair with dresses that have lots of detail.

But don’t worry, no matter the occasion or your personal style, I’m confident you’ll find below all the inspiration you need to complement your blue dress with the perfect jewelry!

1. Silver

When it comes to a blue dress, you can’t go wrong with the simplicity and sophistication of silver jewelry. Silver earrings and necklaces are a classic, versatile choice that goes well with any shade of blue and adds a touch of elegance to your overall look.

So, silver fringe or cascade earrings are the perfect choice for more formal and glamorous events, especially when your dress showcases your shoulders.

On the flip side, you can also go for ear cuffs! This earring style is still trendy and offers a modern choice, especially for those with short hair or who plan to wear it up, accentuating this sophisticated piece.

Finally, keep in mind that silver jewelry is more suitable for those with dark hair or a cool skin undertone. But if that’s not your case, it doesn’t mean you can’t wear it: the important thing is always to choose according to your taste and personal style!

Tip: If you’re wearing a dress with silver embroidery, pair it with silver earrings for a balanced and elegant look. To complete this outfit, choose a silver clutch or heels in the same color.

2. Gold

There is nothing more luxurious than pairing a blue dress with gold accessories! Gold earrings, whether in the form of flowers or small hoops, are the perfect choice for a glamorous night out, especially if you’re wearing a navy blue dress.

However, this jewelry color is versatile and will complement any shade of blue! At the same time, it adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to your overall look that won’t go unnoticed.

If you have blonde hair or a warm skin undertone, gold earrings are the right choice for more formal occasions, adding a timeless elegance to your look.

As for the rest of the accessories, you can complete the look with a gold clutch and shoes. If it’s a summer party, consider adding a pop of color with a bright clutch, like lime green or pink, for a more daring touch.

Tip: If you choose statement earrings and want to add a necklace, consider a more subtle and minimalist design to keep the overall look balanced.

3. Blue or turquoise

Opting for jewelry in the same color as your dress or similar tones is the right choice for a coordinated and balanced look. It keeps the attention on your dress and adds a touch of sophistication to your outfit, making it suitable for formal occasions that call for extra elegance.

For example, a light blue dress paired with earrings with blue or turquoise detailing creates a romantic look perfect for a summer wedding. Add a necklace with the same color detailing and a navy blue clutch, and you’re ready to go!

If you want to add a pop of color to your look, you can do it with your nail polish by choosing a brighter and more vibrant shade of red.

In this case, my best advice is to always go for earrings in the same shade as the dress or slightly lighter/darker. This is the right choice for an elegant and harmonious look, especially if you complement it with silver accessories!

4. Emerald green

Green accessories are a timeless choice for formal parties that bring sophistication to the look. Whether it’s a navy blue, royal blue, or light blue dress, opting for emerald green drop earrings is the perfect choice for a glamorous and stylish look!

In this case, you can pair it with a silver clutch or one in the same color as your earrings. Or, if you’re feeling daring, go for a colorful clutch with embellishments!

5. Pink and fuchsia

If it’s a party in the warmer months, like an outdoor wedding, you can go for a bolder and more romantic look by opting for jewelry with pink or fuchsia details.

These jewelry colors will complement any shade of blue beautifully, and they’ll look especially good when paired with a clutch bag in the same color.

6. Purple

Choosing earrings with purple (or lavender) details will add a touch of sophistication to your look. The color is often associated with royalty and luxury, making it an excellent choice for jewelry, especially if it features gold details.

To keep the look harmonious, you can complete this combo with a purple clutch. However, keep in mind that it might take some attention away from your dress.
