Occasion Accessories

Accessories wedding guests, race days and parties

hile your dress may be the main focus of your attire at the anu special occasion, you will also want to select a few accessories that will enhance your overall ensemble. Use these tips for properly accessorizing your special occasion outfit.

Mismatch Your Jewellery

Matching necklaces and earrings is very outdated. Maintain a modern feel by mismatching your jewellery. If you decide to wear a large necklace, pair them with a subtle, small pair of earrings or studs. A bare neck can also look beautiful and sexy without revealing too much when worn with a pair of chandelier earrings.

Choose a Clutch

Clutch bags are highly trendy at the moment and pair well with a beautiful occasion dress. Have fun with your bag and shoes, as they don’t necessarily need to match to maintain a traditional wedding feel. Clutch bags can be found in a wide variety of elegant styles, from gold textured fabrics to silver sequins. Select one that best flatters your dress and other accessories.

Mix and Match Bracelets

When selecting bracelets to wear with your occasion dress, mix and match accessories. Chunky bracelets and big cuffs are defiantly in right now. Opt for very decorative bracelets that add a hint of glamour to your ensemble; however, don’t throw on every piece of jewelry you own. If you’re decided to wear a big cuff, don’t also wear an over-sized cocktail ring.

Ideal Shoe Styles

Besides the occasion dress, the next biggest mission is to select a pair of shoes that pair well with the dress. Skip square-toed or boxy shoes, as these clunky styles do nothing to elongate your legs. Comfort should be one of the main factors, as you will be spending a great deal of time walking in your shoes. Colour is the next thing that comes to mind, and your main instinct may be to match your shoes to your dress color. Modern times portray a contrasting color as best suited to match your gown. Also consider the location and season, as issues like sand and snow can cause mishaps.
