I’m trying to figure out if this bolero ‘goes’ with my dress. I want some type of coverup for my dress for during the reception, but not a full lace one. Our colors are black, blush, cream and gold and the wedding is black tie.
Thoughts on this combo? If you don’t like it do you have any recommendations? I think the bolero is gorgeous and would definitely go in terms of color, but would it style well with my dress?
Here is the bolero… The website allows you to zoom in for a better look…

@adoc86: I love the dress! the bolero is nice too, but I can’t decide whether the colours look good together…

I think it’s pretty! What are your colors?

@smallstuff: thanks! I think the colors are fine, I’m just unsure of the style of the dress and bolero together. I think the lace around the neckline of the dress is throwing me off. I guess I could always order it and just return it – I hate doing that though!

@Mrs.LemonDrop: thanks! Colors are black, blush, gold and cream (but the only thing that will be black is the wedding party’s attire). I think the bolero is kind of a super light blushish, yeah? Maybe not? lol. The website doesn’t say the color, which is weird. There is gold sequin/beading on it though so I think that ties in.

I think it will look great, the contrast is beautiful 🙂

@adoc86: Honestly it looks gold to me, but that would totally still work!

I think it would look super pretty, but sometimes the colours on the BHLDN site are a bit off. I’m afraid it’s just one of those order-and-see things…I think they have a pretty decent returns policy.
It would look really cute with some matching gold/rose gold/champagne gold shoes! That would tie it in a bit more and not make the bolero so ‘sudden’ in the context of the rest of your outfit.

@adoc86: Both the dress and bolero are gorgeous, but I think the shredded chiffon bolero might clash with the eyelash lace detailing along the bust.

@peonyinparis: thanks! I didn’t know that about the colors on BHLDN, though I guess maybe I should have assumed it since I’ve found this to be true with Anthropologie, too. I agree that the only way to know for sure will be to order it and see if it works. I actually already have my shoes and they’re…gold! Perfect 🙂
@MlleFabuleux: thank you! That is exactly what I was thinking could be the problem. I know the color will work, but I’m having a hard time visualizing the bolero going with the lace around the neckline of the dress. I think I’ll order it just to confirm this (if not I’ll just keep thinking about it, its my way lol) and just return it if it doesn’t work out.
