If you’ve seen more than one post on The Lone Star Looking Glass, then you know I love to wear anything blue and white. It’s a problem, but I’m perfectly okay with this problem. This blue and white ombré dress from Design History is such a fun party dress for summer. The material is so unique too! It’s like a thick almost vegan leather-ish material. Kind of reminds me of something Zenon would wear, but in the BEST possible way! Was anyone else as obsessed with that movie as I was as a kid? #zedislapedis!
For real, I wish I had it on DVD. If it is even available on DVD, that is! But back to styling tips, because that’s what ya’ll are here for, not for me to ramble all day about early 90’s children’s movies, right?
This ombré dress certainly makes its own statement, so I dressed it up with simple gold accessories and a small pop of pink. The white top portion is begging for some extra color. I was debating between a royal blue & pink necklace but then promptly decided the pink was just the perfect amount of pizzazz needed.
Usually when I’m accessorizing, I like to stay in a similar color family. Whether it’s white, brown, gold, silver or black. I tend to prefer that my shoes go with my clutch and then I have all my jewelry’s metals stay somewhat cohesive as well. For example gold on gold or silver on silver. Following this rule of thumb always makes accessorizing simple.
What is your favorite way to accessorize a statement dress? And do you often wear gold or silver jewelry? I love how fashion is unique to each individual and I love to hear everyone’s different takes on his or her style. As always, thanks for stopping by the blog today! Enjoy your Monday!
