One of the things I love to do, is to accessorize an outfit. I use to not put much effort into accessorizing but the last several years I’ve realized that to make an outfit really pop, accessorizing is a must.
That’s why I was super excited when Richella, a friend of mine who happens to have an amazing blog called Imparting Grace, sent me this picture of a dress she said she needed help accessorizing. I quickly jumped at the offer!
Richella said the color of the dress is navy and yellow. It’s perfect for summer but I think a few accessories would make this dress look fabulous. Obviously the dress already makes a statement with the chevron pattern so I think it only needs one other statement piece.
I found this gorgeous necklace at Francesca’s (which is one of my favorite stores to buy jewelry). It has the navy blue and yellow in it but it also has some other colors. The dress and the necklace are our statement pieces and so everything else needs to be neutral. You can find the necklace here. Price $28.00
I found these strappy nude sandals at Designer Shoe Warehouse (DSW) and thought they would be adorable with this dress. You can find them here. Price $49.99.
Next since clutches are so popular I thought this one would be perfect. I found this clutch at Dillard’s. Your clutch does not have to match your shoes but because the dress and necklace have so much color, I thought it would be best to keep the clutch neutral. If I did a color, it would be navy blue. Price $69.30
Here are the items all together. I would keep the earrings simple, small hoops or studs. If you want to you could add a gold watch and a thin gold bracelet.
What do you think about the accessories? How would you accessorize this dress?
I’m thinking about adding this feature to my blog. Anyone who would like to, could send a picture of an outfit they would like accessorized. It would be Accessorizing Thursday except I don’t like that title. I need a catchy one! Any thoughts??
Let me know what you think and if you want, start sending me some pictures to cyndispivey(at)gmail(dot)com. Richella didn’t give me budget, which can be dangerous, so if you want to stick to a certain price limit you might want to let me know that. 🙂
