I’m getting my engagement photos done next month! One outfit is more casual on the beach and I have a watermelon pink flowy dress for that one, and the other outfit is more dressy in a modern, hip, swanky hotel.
This is the dress I got for the dressy outfit:
I need help accessorizing this dress!! I really like the dress and I can usually figure something out in terms of accessorizing, but I guess the elaborate detailing on the dress is throwing me off and I want to make sure I do it right because the photos will last forever. Should I skip the necklace and just do a bracelet and earrings? What kind of jewelry? Also, what kind of shoes? Colored… what color? Black, nude…? I’m lost, please help!

I definitely think you should skip the necklace and keep your accessories minimal. The dress has a lot of personality, so show that off. I think the place where you can have the most fun is your shoes.

I love that dress! I would say no necklace as well as the body already has a lot going on. What about a smart, clean, facinator or hair piece of some kind. I would also remember to add a nice clutch style purse. One that snaps. 😀
On the modcloth website where the dress is pictured without a person the dress looks much more vintage and glamorous. What about a sort of faux fur wrap? It really channels some old Hollywood glamor, but it’s short so more updated.
It reminds me very much of a peach coloured pleated dress I remember seeing on an old time actress such as Marilyn Monroe, but I’m never going to be able to find a picture of that on Google images.

Nude peep toe pumps for sure! Aldo has an awesome pair. Or you could go with black opaque tights and black heels or botties for a more wintery look, with a (faux) fur wrap.

Thanks for the suggestions!! I didn’t think about the faux fur wrap, but that’s a great idea because it will be around Christmas time that we’ll be taking the photos.Ok, nude or black shoes – I’ve got those, so I’ll try the dress with both.
What about jewelry suggestions??

@Saeliz: Oh I love that bracelet. And good point about nude vs. black shoes. I’m thinking black tights, black heels, bracelet, and maybe earrings or a hair flower.
