You’ve got your dress, now finish off your Matric dance look with the perfect accessories. We’ve chosen some of our favourite pieces from Accessorize to inspire you!
Zoe Saldana | Crystal earrings R149
Your choice of earrings depends on your hairstyle and any details on the bodice of your gown. If your dress features heavy embroidery around the neck area, choose smaller, more delicate earrings. Alternatively, if your dress has a more classic strapless design with minimal details around the neckline, opt for a larger, more sparkling earring design.
Taraji P Henson | Gold necklace R199
A gorgeous necklace
Keep the balance of your entire look in mind, including the size and length of your necklace, when choosing your accessories. A strapless dress with a straight neckline goes well with a statement necklace to up the glam factor. Dresses that feature an embellished neckline usually don’t need a necklace at all, but if you want to add something extra, try a delicate choker.
Ruth Negga | Grecian headband R160
An elegant headpiece
A discreet tiara can look elegant and classy, and is the perfect embellishment for those with shorter hair. If you don’t feel confident enough to pull off a tiara, consider a jewelled headband instead.
Viola Davis | Pink bracelet R299
Bracelets are a safe bet to ensure a sleek, balanced look. The rule is to find harmony between elements close together on your body, such as a delicate ring juxtaposed with a chunky bracelet. If, however, you’re set on wearing a heavy bracelet, avoid other accessories and make this your statement piece.
Yara Shahidi | Black clutch R499
This kind of bag is designed to bring extra femininity and elegance to your look. A clutch can be printed, plain, or detailed with embroidery, jewels and sequins. If your dress is on the simpler side, a bold clutch can add extra pop to your look. With a more detailed dress, however, choose a simpler clutch to keep the focus on your gown.
