15 Minimalist Prom Jewelry To Give Your Ensemble A Little Sparkle

Prom is right around the corner, which means that many high schoolers are shopping for the big event. Of course, everyone's first priority is finding the perfect dress. But once you've selected your dress, you'll need accessories. Minimalist prom jewelry is always a good way to go because you won't have worry about it distracting from your fabulous dress.

Another advantage of minimalist prom jewelry is that you can wear a few different pieces — necklaces, earrings, bracelets, etc. — without it looking over the top or overpowering each other.

I made the unfortunate mistake of wearing one too many accessories when I went to prom my junior year of high school. I definitely wore a headband (not sure what I was thinking) and I definitely wore ornate dangly earrings. It wasn't the best look. But luckily, I learned from my mistakes and approached senior prom with a different mindset — minimalism.

I wore a short cream colored dress with simple gold hoops and gladiator sandals. I would be lying if I said I wasn't inspired by Marissa Cooper's senior prom look from the O.C., but the important part of the story was that I chose minimalist accessories and they really took my look up a notch. All you need is a little bit of sparkle to make your look that much better. So with that being said, here are 15 pieces of minimalist prom jewelry that will add a glamorous touch to your ensemble.
