So I just bought my dream dress which is a black long sleeve mermaid by Zac Posen (pictured below) and I’m wanting some ideas on how I should style it or go about my whole look including makeup!
The dress just shipped yesterday so I don’t have photos of me in it yet but I will definitely post some once I get it in.
Here is a picture of what I look like as far as hairstyle and whatnot:
Thanks in advance ladies for your help!

I think a floral crown would be very pretty!

I think that you should go simple on accessories, just earrings. Maybe a sash/belt.
A bold lip like in your picture would be amazing.
I saw you mention you liked finger waves in another post, which I think would be a great choice for hair.

Bold earrings. And keep the bold lip. You are gorgeous, btw.

I’ve actually really considered a flower crown! I’d love to get one made with fresh flowers.
I do have a belt that I could wear with the dress or just get the applique sewn onto the front, I’m waiting to see how it pairs up with the dress! I love the idea of the bold lip though!
Thank you so much!

I love gold jewelry with a black dress! I agree-go with bold, chandelier earrings. No necklace.

Yes, chandelier earrings and bold lip like in your picture. I can’t wait to see pictures of you in your dress! I love it!

I think the dress, as gorgeous as it is, is too glamorous for a flower crown. Definitely the statement earrings and bold lipstick though.

I don’t really see the flower crown working… but bold lip and statement earrings for sure! No necklace.

Thanks ladies! Do you have an example of what kind of earrings I should get?

Wow, you are seriously stunning, and you will look gorgeous in that dress! I agree that you should keep the bold red lip. I don’t think a flower crown would match the glamour of this dress, but what about a black birdcage veil? That’s what immediately popped into my head when I saw that dress!

If you have a big budget, Tahitian pearl earrings! I’ve bought pearls online from The Pearl Outlet and Premium Pearl and am happy with my purchases, though my best pearls were bought in person at jewelry consignment stores.
If not, some crystal dangle earrings and a belt with crystals. I have bought cheap sparkly jewelry at Berricle and highly recommend it! I’ve also bought from Eve’s Addiction and had a good experience.

I don’t be have any suggestions but wanted to say that dress is STUNNING!
