High neck dresses are the epitome of chic – perfect for when you're wanting to look sophisticated at a glamorous event. However, it can be tricky to decide how to accessorise in order to avoid a clashing of lines. Clearly a choker is a no-no, and if your hair is scraped back in an updo to focus on the neckline you might be inclined to go for a statement drop earring, but how on earth to navigate the necklace?
Luckily, Hello! Fashion has looked to some of our favourite celebrity style moments in order to inspire you on how to accessorise a high neck dress.
Bella Hadid wore an amazing vintage Jean Paul Gaultier monochrome gown to the Annette screening during last year's 74th annual Cannes Film Festival. The authentic Y2K piece, originally worn by Naomi Campbell, featured a black tulle collar and was paired with elegant dangling diamond earrings and a sleek updo.

Hailey Bieber's press tour wardrobe, worn while the supermodel promoted her eponymous skincare brand Rhode, was really the gift that kept on giving. Opting for a head-to-toe monochrome moment, Hailey kept the focus around her face by sporting super stylish Balenciaga shades – inviting appreciation of her sleek high neckline.

Sofia Carson attended the 2022 MTV Movie & TV Awards earlier this month in a monochrome striped gown by Iris van Herpen. She opted for a statement stud earring which nodded to the pattern of her dress and tied the whole look together. Often with high neck dresses people tend to wear their hair slicked back off their face, but we love Sofia's sleek side parting and think it complements the drama of her dress perfectly.

Cannes' amfAR gala is always a star-studded affair, and so it felt only right that Jourdan Dunn looked positively celestial. We love how the supermodel experimented with contrasting undertones – pairing a glistening bronze dress with yellowy teardrop earrings.

There's nothing like a chunky chain to amp up a high neckline and add a gorgeous gleam to an otherwise simple knit – just ask It-girl Olivia Palermo.
