Now the Accessorizes
Before you decide on external accessories you must decide what you are wearing underneath your dress. The pieces that makes a woman really feel like a woman. The pieces that no one can see and represents what is totally you.
Pieces that can be worn, as it’s the side of you, no one else knows about.
Choices can include colors like reds, purples, grays and anything.
If you have bustiers, lace bra’s, silk garter belts, thong underwear, strapless lace up halters, don’t forget your legs ankles and belies.
Nylons-thigh high lace and silk stockings, french lace, standard classic style, tummy tuckers, high or low waist or there’s always none at all, depending on the event.Now garter belts are an option, ankle bracelets, belly chains and foot Jewelry.
So lets touch on the million options of outer wear. Easy, let’s move head to toe.
Hair, down or pinned up, curly or straight?
Makeup: Ruby red lipstick or gloss, eyes shadowed like rainbows or none at all, fake eyelashes and penciled brows to thicken. Do not shave your eyebrows , natural brows are beautiful. Make sure you are keeping your lipstick in your clutch and if you can, buy lip pumper,it does wonders!
A hat or not. If so, a tiny hat with mesh or large hat with bow, what color bow? Maybe rather a hair piece that makes a statement.
Earrings: Large with color or tiny like pearls, dangling sparkles or hoops with charms? Depending on your choice, some Jewelry is very important to compliment the black. Your necklace should compliment your earrings or Vice Vera. Maybe it’s a string of beads or pearls or a choker, even a back beaded or chained necklace, especially if your dress is backless. Careful not too wear to much and that your colors are all complimenting each other.
The purse: Clutch or wallet grab, strapless or double strapped, what color, rhinestones or silk, designer or not noticeable? What goes in that clutch is usually your lipstick, a bit of money, cigarettes if you smoke, tissue, a brush of small size and keys should need be. This is a very personal thing and decide a few minutes before you leave usually.
Now, shoes: The second hardest decision to make. You want them to blend with the dress not dominate and take away from it. How high or low a heel? Open toe, square or oval? strapped with buckle, strapless, tie ups or a booties.
Lastly, a shawl or fur shoulder wrap? A knitted high breasted vest jacket type or something with sleeves.
