Wearing an evening dress is not complete without accessories, but you need to be careful when planning to accessorize your dress. So, the first thing you need to do is to evaluate your outfit: Is it fancy, simple, or too elegant? Whatever kind of dress you choose, make sure to match it with appropriate accessories. Here are the following accessories you can wear with an evening dress:
The general rule when accessorizing an evening dress with jewelries is to choose a bracelet and necklace that compliments with each other. If you don't have bracelet, you may wear an evening watch instead. You can also wear cultured, faux or real pearls. Try elegant diamond or pearl studs for your ears. You may also try exotic dangling earrings or vintage clip-on earrings. When it comes to your hair, you can accessorize it with tortoiseshell barrettes, sparkling clips, a fresh gardenia, or a diamond tiara. Lastly, find a ring that matches your other jewelry.
Wear a pair of shoes that you think will best compliment your dress. If you are wearing a full length evening wear, good for you because there's no need to fuss about the shoes. However, if your dress does not cover your feet, you must wear simple but elegant pair of shoes. If you don't have so much knowledge about shoes appropriate for evening dresses, you may seek assistance from your stylish friends.
Purse or Bag
Carry a beaded bag or an evening purse, which is just large enough to hold cash, keys, business cards, and lip gloss. The color of your purse or bag must also compliment your dress.
Shawl or Jacket
Shawl is another accessory in an evening dress. However, make sure its texture and color go with your dress. Wearing shawl is important, especially when it is cold. If you don't have a shawl, you may also wear a lace mantilla or even a vintage smoking jacket instead.
