My partner has bought me the dress below to wear to my best friends wedding. It's lovely but I don't really know what to wear with it. I'm thinking black accessories. I have a black blazer in my head with some black Strappy shoes but will that dress it down too much or be boring?

Advice needed from someone more stylish!!!

I don't think black would go tbh - it would look too harsh against the colour of that dress. I think shoes like the model is wearing go with maybe a pale pink cover up and clutch bag.

I agree with ImADingleDangleScarecrow.

Pale pink or nude shoes and complementing accessories.

Currently very popular.

Great thanks guys!

I agree about black looking too harsh.

Are you sure you best friend will be OK with you wearing white to her wedding?

Hi CoralDreamscapes,

The dress isn't white it's silver!? Perhaps the picture isn't quite clear enough but it's definitely silver.

Perhaps this is a better picture....

I'd go with metallic. Silver, pewter, or gold?

@mumofzach Ah! I see it now that you've shared the second picture. I think a bold colour could also work too - maybe red?

Think they would look lovely with that dress.
