How to accessorise a gold dress UK

It's always exciting to have a gold dress in your wardrobe because it's a statement piece that can make you feel elegant and glamorous. Whether you’ve got a date night with the girls planned or a fancy event with work, a gold dress is the perfect option if you want to make an impact. 

But with such a bold and out-there clothing choice, you may find it difficult to find the right accessories. Accessorising a gold dress is important to complete your look and take it to the next level. In this article, the experts at NADINE MERABI will be sharing some tips on how to accessorise a gold dress and look amazing to take all your accessory worries away! 

Find the right jewellery 

Every outfit needs the right kind of jewellery to elevate it to a whole new level, and a gold outfit is no different. When wearing a gold dress, the perfect jewellery can complement the look and add a touch of sophistication. But the type of jewellery you should wear depends on the style of the gold dress you are going to wear. 

For earrings, you could accessorise with drooping or hoop earrings, but try to make sure they are the same gold colour, as silver jewellery won’t look as good. Of course, there are so many sizes and shapes of earrings that you can choose from, so you should just ensure that they flatter your dress and don’t contrast too much. 

Also, make sure that your necklace matches your earrings, even if you don’t buy them as a set. If your gold dress is really bold, then you may decide to go for more subtle jewellery that isn’t too loud. If your dress has a low neckline, a bolder statement will look great. 

Top Tip: a pair of long chandelier earrings will help to shape and draw attention to your face. 

Picking the right footwear will make all the difference

Finding the right shoes to go with your outfit is not only important to bring the whole look together, but can be the deciding factor of how much fun you have when you go out. There is nothing worse than wearing a pair of heels that hurt your feet from the minute you leave the house. If you make the wrong footwear choice then you may live to regret it. 

Therefore, we recommend that you think about the type of event you are going to and how far you will be expected to walk when picking your footwear. 

To ensure that your footwear matches your gold dress, you may want to go for a pair of nude pumps or heels that will elongate your legs. These will make you look tall and won’t take away attention from your beautiful dress. But if you want to add a bit of contrast, then you can’t go wrong with a pair of black heels. 

Do you prefer to wear flats? Why not go for a pop of colour with some chunky sandals? They’ll look great and be comfortable all night long. 

Find the right bag 

The right bag can complete your look and tie everything together. A metallic clutch or a small purse can add a touch of elegance to your outfit. If you want to keep things simple, a black or nude clutch can also work well.

Maybe you’re going for a more casual look? Don’t be afraid to opt for a crossbody bag or a shoulder bag. A brightly coloured bag can also add a pop of colour to your outfit and make it more fun.
