Dreamy Blue Dress Styling Tips
So, you’ve set your heart on a dreamy blue dress, but now you wonder how to style this unique shade. Much the same as with a white or Ivory dress, you’ll want to ensure your dress is the main focus of the look. Thus, opting for subtle jewellry and classic footwear is a elegant and eternally stylish way to go.
If you will wear jewellery (other than your beloved engagement ring), gold can work. But, to enhance the blue and compliment your chosen dress colour, silver is an ideal choice. A statement pair of silver drop earrings, a subtle necklace, or even a bracelet will elevate your blue bridal look. Who doesn’t want just the perfect amount of nuptial sparkle!?
What about Hairstyle?
The styling choices are endless for your hair! However you decide to wear yours, finishing off with a silver slide or even a headband looks simply beautiful when wearing a blue dress. If you opt for a more organic or even boho style, why not try a few blue flowers to tie the look together.
Depending on the dress cut and length, your shoes may be a focal point or they may be mostly hidden. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t adore them! After all, these shoes will guide you down the aisle as you go from Miss to Mrs.
White or ivory shoes are a great option for dresses with a light to mid blue shade. Wereas if you’re going bold in a royal or cobalt blue, metallic silver heels or sandals are a winning, colour enhancing choice.
