Does this dress need a statement necklace? And what shoes?

Just ordered this dress for a work awards dinner I'm hosting next Friday Biba wrap over gown

I will have hair up. Do you think it needs a statement necklace or something simple?

And sparkly or non-sparkly sandals? I have snake skin sandals that are gorgeous but think a bit of sparkle might be needed as the dress is plain?

If it makes any difference, I have fair skin and blonde highlighted hair that will be up on the night.

Very elegant. I'd go for something quite simple and delicate, let the dress do the talking. I'd probably also go for metallic sandals or sparkly.

lovely dress, would keep the necklace simple and for shoes maybe something like this www.debenhams.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/prod_10701_10001_051010602986_-1 not too sparkly but a bit which should work nice a dress like yours.

Thank you, oh I love those Jenny Packham shoes.

I have a fine platinum necklace that I wear every day with a simple diamond pendant that was made to match my engagement ring so I may stick with that.

Now, earrings. Diamond studs or drop with hair up?

That's lovely but I think drop earrings and a nice bracelet would look better especially if your hair is up

Drop earrings and no necklace I think. Would make neckline too busy. Lovely dress though.

definitely statement earings rather than necklace and definitely not both. delicate necklace would be lost www.thbaker.co.uk/swarovski-ladies-blue-crystal-freckle-earrings-5216868?utm_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=THB_Shopping&utm_term=1101601915407&utm_content=Brands

Do you wear glasses? If not, def statement earrings and hair up.
