Hi, all I've been struggling to find a dress for a wedding I'm attending, I finally brought one and it's a burgundy colour Bardot style dress any idea which colour accessories and should I go for a fascinator? Colour shoes etc I'm blonde if that helps
Gold is lovely with burgundy. Gold strappy sandals, long earrings are good with a Bardot neckline, a chunky ring and a small clutch. Is your hair long or short? I wouldn't go for a fascinator but you can get beautiful hair accessories depending on how you're planning to style it.
If you don't want a hat, I'd go with a hair clip like this or more modern like this. The point of a bardot neckline is to show off your shoulders, so you'll probably look better with your hair up or half up
I'm also looking at another option just in case it doesn't come together and I'm after some more advice . I have this dress in the wardrobe and it's a peplum dress I've attached a picture it's not identical mine is just blue would his be appropriate if the other dress looks rubbish
Either dress will look lovely, my preference is the blue, but definitely metallic accessories. If you're wearing a shawl do you want to wear a hat as well? A small neat hat would be chic. Not too fussy.
