I have a raspberry/shocking pink coloured dress which I bought last season which I would like to wear to a (formal) christening this summer. The dress is a bit like this, but without the bow and with a lower neckline.
I am wondering what accessories to pair it with - I need jacket/light coat, shoes and a bag. I have a decent budget but would like to be able to recycle the accessories subsequently. I am trying to avoid nude patent shoes - I have a pair of sledges from LK Bennett but I'd like something more "on trend".
Pick a colour you actually like, because you're looking for clothes you can rewear, and go for it full throttle. I reckon if you go for almost any strong colour and wear it with total conviction then you'll be fine. Honestly, even scarlet, lime green or neon orange.
