How would I accesorise this dress for an (early) September wedding?
I think it depends if you want to make a statement or just blend in , zebra print would look great but i'm not sure if i would be brave enough, i would go for Silver or maybe a bit of yellow (bracelet/beads).
I wouldn't do anything for the neck, so as not to detract from the detail on the dress there. Bracelet/s and earrings for jewellery, depending on your hair and style.
For shoes, I'd go another jewel tone, in the reds range. If that's a bit bold for your liking then stick with a strappy sandal. Not personally sure about an animal print to be honest, kind of crossing your jewel colours trend with your safari trend!
The less stiletto the heel for the grass the better, practically speaking, but that wouldn't put me off necessarily, good excuse for teetering later after the champagne!
Mmm I love the colour of the dress. No necklace as it has a feature neckline, a chunky silver bracelet. Not a cardi or shrug as it would spoil the line of the dress, cardis and tunic styles end up making you look like an oblong. A white or cream pashmina with green leafy design would be perfect... can't find one but if you like animal this would be nice Oh and cream or white wooden-heeled wedges or chunky heels.
Yep, I think I'm going to go with Silver. Have been googling around and looking at examples of emerald green dresses all accessorised up and silver is great. Its a nice neutral tone which brings out the green of the dress. Its easy to find silver shoes, and easy to match a bag to the shoe (though I know that's not a rule these days) and it suits my skin tone.
I'm not going to have a necklace with that neckline, I dont think, or a fascniator or hat - its a slightly more chilled out second wedding, the bride indicated that she didn't expect that of her guests and I always end up with hat hair and I can't quite get facinators right (can anyone?!?)
I like the idea of red but am scared of looking Christmas-themed.
I might do a slightly bling diamonte dangly earring, we'll see, as its a late afternoon into evening jobby.
