Accessories can make or break an outfit. If you're wearing an ornate outfit, keep your bags and shoes toned down. If your dress is simple, kick it up a notch with ultra-glam accessories. Clutches are the the go-to bags. Heels are classic, but they're not your thing, funky flats are just as cute; metallics and colour-blocking look great with formal wear.
If the dress you’re wearing is simple in cut and colour, accessorising with statement shoes or a killer bag will bring it from blah to BAM! Experiment with bright colours, or an unusual texture or design. If your dress is fancier, don’t overdo it with equally intricate accessories.
But if you choose to go with a nude shoe to elongate your shape, remember that not all nudes are different. Some nudes look duller or grey-toned and they may contrast oddly with the shade of your dress. So make sure the nude you pick matches the rest of your outfit. Also, metallic gold and silver are a funkier way to interpret “nude” and are a fun way to spice up any outfit you may wear after prom!
