You’ve chosen well, as white can be paired with almost any color, so you can be creative with your pairing. We love vibrant bright colors such as red, ocean blue, and bright green, to make your dress stand out, however more pastel tones and lighter colors such as yellow or baby pink also look fab with white.
Contrast the outfit with bits of black
One thing we want to avoid when wearing white is looking too similar to a bride on her big day, therefore one idea is to pair your dress with black accessories, such as a headband or belt to enhance the shape and create an empire waistline. This can add a nice contrast to your white outfit, adding sequins and crystal beads will also highlight the dress nicely for snaps in the right lights.
Add Gold or Silver
These two shades work great with white prom dresses, and will certainly be popular accessories for prom dresses 2019. Gold or silver will add glimmer and dazzle to your dress, and gives it an extra special feel. If you don’t want to go all out with gold or silver shoes and handbag, why not try to add these colors in the form of a sash or hat.
Dress Style Matters
When accessorizing, we need to be conscious of the style and design of our dress. For example, if the neckline is off the shoulder or thin straps, then a statement detailed necklace would look good, however dresses with a closed neck may suit a simple elegant pendant better.
White also looks eye-catching alongside metallic pieces. JJ’s House designer Jessica thinks adding metallic jewellery or a handbag gives you a sophisticated and fashionable look. Choosing minimalistic and plain metallic accessories bring sleekness and glam to your outfit, the ideal statement for your night.
