Ok I need style advice and thought of the MN stylistas first!
I am going to a wedding, and I have found the most gorgeous black dress. It's a very classic long sleeved cross over dress quite 1940s in style and I want to wear it, even though black may be a wedding faux pas!
My question is, do I wear coloured accessories/bag - or what? And what colour if so? I guess I have to 'wedding' it up somehow but how to do this stylishly??? Heeeelp!
hmm...I don't think a jacket would be that comfortable with it - but a coloured belt is a good idea......I am so clueless with colour, guess that's why I've gone for a black dress! What's best together - black and white, black and red, or maybe a dull/subtle metallic silver or gold?
oh and does one wear black shoes with a black dress or go for coloured shoes to match whatever colour you accessorise with?
Hmm... When is the wedding? If it is soon (i.e. autumn/winter-ish) I saw a dress in Coast that was black with a patent red belt and thought it looked fabulous, so I would be tempted to go in that direction, with possibly black patent shoes (red shoes always reminds me that at school we used to say "red socks, no knickers" <childish emotion>
However, if it was spring/summer next year, I would probably go white/silver belt with silver strappy sandles!
