    Hi girls and guys,

    I bought this(http://www.asos.com/Asos/Asos-Printe...t=-1&clr=Print) dress for my end of uni party which is gonna be kind of casual and outdoors. I had a nightmare trying to find anything i actually liked, and now im not sure what accessories to wear to 'dress up' this dress. I was thinking a long-ish necklace in silver and lots of bangles, but i feel like the outfit lacks colour, and I usually go for the more bright and colourful clothes!!

    Anyone have any quirky ideas they'd like to suggest?

    Thanks!

    wow, its beautiful!

    i got a similar dress recently and i bought a bracelet for the upper arm to wear with it (armlet i think) on ebay, maybe?

    if not i'd add silver bangles and some drop earrings and silver sandals and maybe a bright clutch to go with?

    I would not buy any colour for this.

    I follow what Trinny and Susannah believe- black with colour makes the colour look cheap and tacky.

    Light, silver accessories, silver clutch and silver shoes. Hair loosely up and curled (assuming you have long hair)

    Thanks a lot for the suggestions, will definitely check out accessorize. I have some delicate silver bangles, but I think ill look for some more chunky ones

    No contrary to the silver idea, I think chunky wooden and brightly coloured bangles/ necklace might look nice .... but then they might clash with the pattern.
