Three ways to instantly update your white dress? You probably can tell from the looks above: add a pop of color with an eye-catching red box clutch, draw the eye up with a pair of exotic turquoise earrings; perfectly frame your face with a bold statement necklace. But not all three together of course.
Pay attention to the details when you are picking these outfit makers: for a sharp, modern black and white dress, Nicole Richie picked a red clutch with a whimsical antiqued golden clasp. The snake skin effect faux leather also echoes the edginess of her dress; Rachel Zoe balanced her innocent, sober dress with bold statement necklace and oversized bracelet. Since all of her add-ons are pretty bold, she kept them in a similar tone.
As you can tell from the three pictures below, Taylor Swift’s look is my favorite. Her curvaceous, ravishing dress fits like a glove, a perfect balance between sexy and elegant. The turquoise earrings are truly unexpected on red carpet. To steal a scene, grab the attention, red carpet dressing is all about the unexpected. That’s why a bold turquoise piece can easily beat expensive diamond (remember this look of Hedi Klum?)
We don’t have many chances to wear gowns, but today’s three simple tips work perfectly with your white sundress, maxi dress or sheath. Don’t forget to give them a try when you need to dress up for a night out, a fancy dinner or a formal event!
