Simple hairstyles complement dramatic jewels

When the main point of your outfit is an eye-catching piece of jewelry like a necklace or chandelier earrings, it can help to keep everything else around it simple. Hollywood's most glamorous celebrities know that if you're wearing a statement necklace that's already drawing attention to you, then your hairstyle can take it easy, whether in a slicked back ponytail, with bangs pinned to the side or cropped into a clean, short cut like Anne Hathaway's boyish 'do.

Kate Mara has perfected the pulled-back look, and it's no surprise, as she's often seen sporting beautiful necklaces with a minimalist-style dress, like her look at the UK premiere of "House of Cards" at a Leicester Square cinema in London. Her sunny yellow dress and Plukka "Demos" necklace was all she needed to dazzle fans and fellow guests of the event. Mara's simple hairstyle let the rest of her ensemble take center stage, which was wise, as her fuchsia collar necklace was a sight to be seen.

The "House of Cards" actress isn't the only one who knows how to flaunt her best features – Taylor Swift has proven that she's got exquisite taste in the jewelry department and knows how to properly showcase the pieces she wears. While the country-pop star might have lost to Adele at the Golden Globes, she certainly won the style award between the two of them. Swift rocked a burgundy Donna Karan Atelier dress with matching Lorraine Schwartz chandelier earrings, which glimmered under the Beverly Hills sunlight. To show off these beautiful accessories, she pulled all of her hair back – including her bangs – in a low, elegant bun. 

Sometimes, less is more, and when you're adorned with fine jewelry, that's often all it takes to make a fashionable impression.
