Add accessories to your white

Few garments are as simple and timeless as the basic white dress. Whether crafted from a simple, easy-care material, or created from creamy lace, white dresses convey innocence and style. The most important white dress, the wedding dress, has an accessory code all its own. Kick up that snowy frock with some pretty accessories and touches.
Remember the rules of the most important white dress–something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. Good ideas for these include vintage rhinestone earrings, hair pins, combs and necklaces. For a very marriage-minded and modern touch, get a tiny nose piercing with a blue, red or pink stone in the left nostril, which is an indicator of fertility and relationship luck in India and Africa.

Pair a basic white tank dress with a fabulous black hat and short black leather gloves for retro appeal. A wide-brimmed, floppy black hat suits many women, and it makes a very strong statement for lunch and dinner engagements. The leather gloves are a sexy extra touch.

Wear romantic-looking accessories with silhouettes that flow. A pink or blue flower hair clip adds a spot of color while enhancing the wearer’s sensuality. Alternately, try a feather hair clip

Trim white business dresses with a rich-looking silk scarf. If you’re feeling bold and want to convey power, favor a bright-colored square. For feminine appeal, use a softer shade like pink or violet. Tie it with a simple knot, or use a more complex method for a stronger look.

Look at the undertones of the white dress before wearing gold or silver jewelry necklaces. Cool shades like winter white fare better with silver, while warmer colors like ecru look great with gold.
