STYLE ADVICE: I bought this dress for a wedding, can you help me accessorise – budget £40.

Posted on: September 15, 2014

QUESTION: I have puchased this dress as per your style advice for a wedding in Cardiff this Friday, I was wondering if you could recommend a jacket, jewellery (earrings and / or bracelet – both if you think this won’t over accessorise or just earrimgs if you think that will!), bag and shoes to go with this dress please? My budget is £40 and under.


ANSWER: The dress you’ve gone with is a gorgeous choice – navy is a classic all year round colour and the beading adds an elegant touch of glamour. We’ve chosen a selection of items that will compliment the dress wonderfully:

1. New Look bolero, £17.99: – A blazer or heavy tailored jacket will make this outfit quite wintery, so keep it fresh and light with a cape style bolero:

3223124132. New Look sandals, £9: – Keeping within your budget, we’ve found a pair of gold metallic sandals which will bring out the gold detailing in the dress. Open toe is best with full length dresses, so don’t forget to paint your toe nails!



5. H&M bag, £14.99: – Trying to match the perfect navy for your clutch will be a tricky task and your outfit may end up looking a bit ‘matchy’. We’ve therefore selected a bright clutch which can also be worn tucked under the shoulder. The pop of colour will go really well with navy and we guarantee it will get you complements!


6. ASOS earrings, £2: – Keep your jewellery super simple with a delicate pair of drop earrings. No need to splash the bank with these as there are some really great bargains to be had:


7. River Island bracelet, £5: – One piece of jewellery will add just the right amount of sparkle as you already have embellishment on the dress. If you’d rather go for something more ‘statement’, why not emphasise the Grecian look of the dress with a leaf gold bracelet. Karen x
