Every sorority girl knows that accessories can often make the outfit or the look. For Formal, you want to look your best by accentuating the best parts of your dress with the right necklace and the perfect shoes. Here are a few ideas that might help you complete your Formal look.
Shoes: Your shoe choice depends completely on the dress you have chosen. If you chose a bright blue dress with silver embellishments, for example, your dress is the thing that stands out because it’s a bright, noticeable color. Maybe choose a pair of shoes that are silver or even white to contrast your dress color. If your dress is all silver or white, you could make it stand out more by wearing bright colored shoes, like hot pink or blue.
Necklaces: First and foremost, necklaces aren’t always necessary. For those who have picked a dress that has a lot of embellishments or beading around the neckline or the top of the chest, some necklace bling isn’t really needed. If the top half of your dress is rather plain, though, bling it up! Stay close to complimentary colors when choosing a necklace, so that your choice doesn’t clash with your dress.
Bracelets and Earrings: There are a lot of bracelets and earrings out there that are super gorgeous. Most of the time, you want to stay away from bracelets that are clunky and earrings that are kind of heavy. If your bracelet is big and clunky, you’re going to want to take it off when you’re eating dinner no matter how gorgeous it is, and if your earrings are too heavy, your earlobes will look saggy. That’s not cute.
Hair: Sometimes the best accessory is already attached to you! If you have long hair, you have lots of styles to choose from, and some styles look better with certain dresses. For example, if your dress is a one shoulder, you could wear your hair off to one side. If your dress has a dramatic neckline or a turtleneck, your hair would look great in an up do. If your dress is strapless, try wearing your hair down. Check out our Pinterest board for more ideas on hair, and other accessories!
Custom Formal Shirts: Of course it’s all about the dress, but why not get a custom shirt for everyone to wear in the car on the way to Formal? It’ll look super cute, and it’s a great way to show off your letters for a celebration that’s all about your sorority. Take a look at our Single Shirt Designs and order your custom shirts today!
