Do you have a picture of it on you?  It’s hard to say without knowing what the neckline looks like on our how long the hem is.

Also, what “season” will it be?  Do you want to dress it up for fall?  Will you be somewhere tropical?

I’d recommend pearls and a neutral heel on that picture alone.

What are some of the stores you generally shop at, so we can get an idea of where your price point is.

There are so many ways you can accessorize. Knowing your overall  budget,and favourite colours and metal colours, will help us help you.

PERSONALLY I’d do a gold snakeprint skinny belt and leopard calf-hair heels. But that’s just me 😉

Maybe try a metallic belt and metallic necklace/earrings/bracelet? Mixing metallics is very on-trend and fashionable right now, and more formal than pops of color. Just make sure the metallic pieces have similar feels (hard to describe how you can do this, but I think you’ll know it when you see it).

Black belt and black heels.  finish is up to you (patent/shiny, matte, satin, etc).  dangly chandelier earrings, and a sparkly clutch. a bright lip, or a darker one if going more fall.

If cool, pair with thick black tights and black heels.

a bold chunky necklace could go really pretty with it, but find one that suits a formal ( with colours to go with ) silver is probably easiest. just dont do bold everything. like maybe do a bold ring that goes with it but play down the earings and bracelet or vise vera.I wouldnt do black. its a bit hard to play up a dress like this for a formal. As far as shoes id do a a heel with thicker straps with colours that match your belt and or accesories. Note : if you do a belt keep in mind the ruffle to the dress , you probably dont want too extravagant. ( shoes something like this style ) :

@noopnoop:  Coral would ABSOLUTELY go with that navy/teal
