@Old Hollywood:  I am rarely a fan of gloves unless there is a very specific theme. In your case your lace dress is so lovely and delicate and that neck line is gorgeous. I would hate for gloves to distract attention from all of that.

My vote is for some stunning earrings and a bracelet. Perhaps pearls to keep with the Jackie O vibe?

@Old Hollywood:  I’m not a big fan of gloves, but I love the Jackie-O look for sure! While gloves aren’t my thing, I do think that those particular gloves just won’t go at all. The difference in fabrics is too stark for my tastes- satin gloves with an all-lace dress. If you really want gloves I think you should stick to a matching lace pattern and not a totally different fabric altogether… 

I do agree with PP though that your dress would be just as stunning without the gloves and with a nice pearl necklace/earrings/bracelet…. But it’s your dress, your wedding & your style- if you gotta have gloves then you gotta have em- I just don’t think this is your pair! =)

I don’t like gloves for anything other than to keep my hands warm here in NYC while walking around.

I love the pearl idea and that dress looks gorgeous on you!!!!

@Old Hollywood:  I love the idea of pearls with that dress.  I do feel like gloves come off as “costume-y”, or like something a teenager would wear with a ballgown to prom (cough, me, cough cough).  It’s hard to make formal gloves modern.

@Old Hollywood:  Oh and to be honest, not sure I’d go with gloves. Might take away from the dress, IMO.

I think if you want to go with gloves, you should find something a little more delicate looking. Those look like they might clash a little with the lace of the dress.
