    I love the dress and it certainly fis the theme/ It can certainly make someone appear older though.

     

    But I say acessories would be key 

     

    You can do this with a youthful statement piece

     

    Options 
    1. Floral headpiece (if within their budget or maybe you can purchase for them…or if daring DIY them)
    Something like this:

    Hair can be youthful – down wavy and waterfall braiding for example.

     

    2. Statement necklace (obv in your colors though)

    Also if you COULD alter the dressto make it look less dated:

    1. create a V-neck,

    2. remove sleeves – make it strapless or tank

    3. shorten dress

    I love it, and I think it would be even better if there was a way to wear it off the shoulders??  Probably not possible without serious alterations though.

    I like it and it totally fits the theme–i like how the top is frilly-ish.

    Not my style, but definitely fits the theme.  I say go for it if your BMs like it/it looks good on them!
