7 Wedding Dress Neckline Trends & Jewelry To Match [Featuring: Flair Boston]

Fresh from the runway, the wedding dress trends that we have seen recently are simply stunning. From combinations of lace and off-the-shoulder to the classic spaghetti strap dress with a twist, it is an amazing time to be a fashion-forward bride. 

But, how do you begin to style all of these trendy wedding dress options with jewelry, when all of the necklines are so different from the traditional "sweetheart" and "halter" we have all seen before? We have partnered with the dress experts at Flair Bridal Boutique on Newbury Street in Boston to bring you the hottest neckline trends in the bridal world and the perfect jewelry sets to match. Enjoy!

1. Beaded Straps

It's a bride's prerogative to wear bling whenever she can, and the straps of her gown are no exception. Intricate, textured, beaded straps were all over the Fall 2016 runways! Skip the necklace here and let the beaded straps speak for themselves. Pair this neckline with pretty drop earrings and simple bangles to add a subtle, gorgeous jewelry look to your already stunning wedding dress.

2. Corset Tops

A corset provides what every bride wants - a snug, flattering fit and a rockin' shape! So it's no surprise that we're seeing more and more of them on the bridal runways. Don't be afraid to play up this young silhouette with jewelry to match your outgoing personality. Fun, big earrings or ear climbers and a pretty bracelet (or bracelet stack) will take your look from plain to wedding bells ready.

3. Deep V-Neck

Jewelry: Mauresque Collection Dangle Earrings in 18k Rose Gold with Pave Diamonds by Roberto Coin ($14,500), Mauresque Collection Bracelet in 18k Rose Gold with Pave Diamonds by Roberto Coin ($15,880) - Inquire About These Items

A super flattering style for those of us with a smaller bust line, this top creates a nice, long line that instantly adds height and just the right amount of feminine charm! The romantic neckline of this dress begs for light and airy jewelry to match. While you can wear a long, Y-shaped necklace with this dress to create long lines, we let the dress speak for itself and veto-ed the necklace for gorgeous and intricate drop earrings to pull your eyes back up to your face. Don't forget a gorgeous matching bracelet to complete this enchanting look.

4. Double Straps

A fresh, new take on the skinny strap, the double strap top adds interest to your neckline in a subtle, soft and stunning way! Plus, the double lines in the back ensure a "wow!" moment as you come down the aisle! Use the intricate details of the double strap to play up your jewelry. We went with geometric drop earrings and bracelets to match the more vintage essence of this dress. Other pieces of jewelry that almost made the cut to match this neckline: Chandelier earrings or pearl drop earrings.

5. Off-The-Shoulder Tops

Perfect for the bride looking to add a vintage touch to her look, an off-shoulder top is universally flattering and oh so romantic! An easy way to add "something old" to your wedding dress is with vintage jewelry. Pictured above are two pearl pieces from our estate collection. We love pearls with the off-the-shoulder top, because the timeless essence of pearls plays off this classic silhouette almost too perfectly.

6. Crop Tops

This is a top for the modern, fashion forward bride who really wants to make a statement and stand out! It's sure to be a style that your friends and family won't have seen before, and something they won't soon forget. Wow them even further with non-traditional earrings, the perfect piece to represent your "something blue." Pair your gorgeous dress with diamond tennis bracelets that sport edgy accents, and you will be the picture of the modern, trendy bride.

7. Spaghetti Straps

Although known to be a casual look in ready to wear, spaghetti straps are making a strong, formal statement in the wedding world! Delicate and soft, they add just the right amount of support while remaining lightweight and comfortable. Draw everyone's attention to your stunning dress with a light, simple necklace and airy, enchanted earrings to match. Because the neckline of this dress is so versatile and looks good with every style accessory, play up your personality with either a trendier chunkier necklace, or go with more tiny and airy jewelry for a classic look.
