Wear a statement necklace or earrings but not both. They are named statement jewelry because they are bold and stand out and attract attention to the upper part of the dress or to the face. Wearing earrings with the necklace can be too much.
Add a small belt to accentuate curves. Tone down accessories when wearing a bright coloured dress to avoid too much for the eye by throwing on a dark colored belt.
