Dress Necklines Straight and Strapless This elegant, classic neckline has to be one of the most effortless wedding dress designs to accessorise. The best thing about this clean, straight-lined design is that your accessory choices are limitless (hallelujah). If you love glamour and glitz, then this is the time to shine! Why not opt for a statement necklace: a collaret or elongated pearl strand necklace, complementing this wedding dress fantastically. Always make sure you wear something that you feel comfortable in, even better something that you would want to wear again and again.

A simple necklace with a statement clasp can work wonders, adding a modernist appeal to the overall vintage look of the sweetheart neckline whilst remaining glamourous.
