Good afternoon! Today we’re starting a series on how to accessorise with formal wear. For each post we’ll be taking a dress from one of Zeleb’s recent collections & trying to find some great accessories to go with it. Ready, steady, go…
Let’s start with a cute, springy one. This floral dress is made of chiffon and is floor-length without a train.
It has a very slight sweetheart neckline and flower details at the bust and just below the natural waist.
So – first off, what type of occasion are we dressing for? This gown is most popular with Zeleb customers attending birthday parties and proms, so we can easily accessorise for both of those.
If you’re a guest at the party and not the birthday girl herself, this dress is a great way to make a style statement when paired with the right accessories. A few thoughts:
1. Balance the modern style with a retro fascinator
2. Minimal, tasteful jewellery so as not to overwhelm the embroidery on the bodice of the dress
3. Do something interesting – but not too dark or matchy – with your purse
4. Just because the dress hides your shoes, that doesn’t mean you have to have boring ones!
So there’s one take on how to style this dress up a bit. Any thoughts? How would you do it differently?
