black velvet dress with statement jewelry

In my opinion, the best way to dress up a black dress is by wearing it with statement jewelry.  It gives your look a powerful feel and makes you look interesting and different.  It’s no wonder kings and queens would wear tons of it.  For opulent and ornate statement jewels, I always look to Oscar de la Renta.  I don’t think there’s ever been a single piece of jewelry in his collections that I didn’t like.  They all definitely make a statement, but in a subtle, sophisticated way, which of course is very true to the entire Oscar aesthetic.  For this shoot, I styled this beautiful necklace by yes, Oscar de la Renta, currently available at Socialite Auctions.  I wanted to make it all about the necklace, so I wore a black dress; and in true nature of my own aesthetic, I added a bit more opulence with the earrings. 😉
