Ok ladies, I need some stylish advice. I recently bought these two dresses and I’m considering wearing one (or both) for our engagement pictures this summer. (How is it July already?) I have boob-length straight brunette hair which I will probably put in a messy side bun, but I’m not 100% sure yet. I’m 6’1″ and already taller than FI so I’ll be wearing (probably brown/gold) flats. I think we will be going to the zoo for the pictures, and maybe a nice park.
I am an accessory noob. I want to dress these outfits up, but I don’t know where to start! I’m thinking some kind of statement necklace? What else? I’d love to see pics/links!

I looooooove the green 🙂 becuase of the top of it maybe just a simple necklace and diamond (or cz) stud earings.. 🙂

@Pinkmoon: Definitely don’t do a statement necklace with the green, it’s got a lot going on on top already.
Personally I prefer dangle earrings to necklaces, especially if you’re wearing your hair up.

Ooh quick responses, thanks ladies. I agree with you about not adding a necklace to the green one, it doesn’t need anything in that area. I have a pair of gold dangly earrings I think might work. And maybe a bracelet?
The coral dress leaves a fair bit of chest area exposed though, so that’s why I’m thinking big necklace on that one.

I agree with PP’s that the green one does not need a necklace or a very simple necklace. Maybe add some glam to your messy bun. Definetly want some earrings and a few bracelets.

THe orange one you could add maybe a chunky belt or statement necklace with earrings and bracelets.

Cute dresses! The green is probably OK as is, maybe a thin belt around the waist?
And a chunky bib style necklace in turquoise would look really cute with the coral one! Or a long pendant style neckalce. Either one would be cute!
Since the two dress styles are similar, maybe make one a litter dressier than the othe for some variety?

I love the coral dress for that POP of color. I wore pink to my engagement session and so glad I did because it stool out nicely. Statement neckless would go great with the coral dress!

I love both dresses…i would keep it simple with accessories – no necklace for either dress but if your hair is up earrings and a bracelet would be nice….for my e-photo i really didnt wear any jewlery. I wore a green dress for one of my outfits too 🙂
