A white dress is a gorgeous wardrobe staple to have tucked away, no matter what your personal style might be. It’s a classic, clean colour that quite literally looks good on absolutely everybody. White is perfect to keep summer outfits fresh, brighten up your palette during the winter and for standing out at a special event. The right white will make your skin tone pop, so make sure that the undertone of your piece is right for you, whites can have a silvery blue tinge, making them cool, or a creamier edge which makes them warm. Once you’re sold on the perfect white dress for you, it’s time to get accessorising. As we all know, accessories can make a huge difference to any frock, so if you’re in need for a little embellishment inspiration, look no further! Here are a few ideas for accessorising your white dress…

Classic Chic

A classically chic white dress look should channel a little of the style and grace of none other than the iconic Old Hollywood Star, Marilyn Monroe. Swipe on a classic red lip and put some soft curls in your hair. The most glamorous classic jewel to go for here is diamonds, add a delicate pair of drop-down diamond earrings and a collar necklace for the perfect glitzy look. A shimmering pair of strappy heels and a graceful, white shawl will really amp up this timeless and classically chic ensemble.

Modern Metals

Mixing metals is the perfect way to contemporise your white dress. You need to get comfortable layering here, so lean into the dainty jewellery trend to get it completely right, you don’t want to overpower your frame. Drape delicate chain necklaces, chunkier coin pendants and soft chokers in gold, silver and rose gold to create a dazzling effect. Thin gold hoops and a ring here and there will tie the whole thing together. Wear your hair in a half up half down do and add some neutral-toned platform shoes to complement this magic modern outfit.

Pretty Pearls

Pearls have come back in a big way! They are the perfect, fashion-forward way to angelically accessorise that white dress of yours. You can be as playful as you like here, because of the rather monotone, understated nature of the material, you can really pile them on. Add some creative, statement pearl and gold earrings, a pearl choker chain and gold rings. Micro-mini, pearl-studded bags are the epitome of cool right now, so one of these is going to elevate your dress amazingly. If you’re feeling super stylish, slide on a velvet headband. If you want to be a little more minimal, pull your hair into a messy side bun, throw on some cream satin mules and get ready to look outrageously elegant.

Creative and Colourful

White dresses are the perfect canvas for a little colourful creativity! If you want to use colour for contrast, pick one tone to play with. Resin jewellery is a fantastic way of adding colour to an outfit, pick some hoop earrings, stack up the bangles and add some resin rings. Maybe you’re after a more eclectic, bohemian goddess vibe? Gemstones people, gemstones! Gather all the gorgeous gemstone jewellery you can, mixed metal rings, studded bracelets, embellished pendants, they’ll all look perfect. You can even integrate some beaded necklaces here to enhance the traveller tone of a boho outfit. Add some woven espadrilles and a basket bag for full effect.

These are just some of the ways you can reinvent any of your white dresses. Let your personality and style shine, and you’ll feel as beautiful as possible.
