As promised ladies, here is just one of the many ways to take this Lela Rose bridesmaid dress from matrimony to dinner and a matinee just by adding some fabulous accessories. I started with the bronze chain link necklace, compliments of FRED boutique. I chose this piece for a couple reasons. First, the brass tint makes it neutral against the bright hues of this gorgeous Oasis blue, which means less color clutter. Second, using a chunkier necklace takes away from the delicate details of the tuxedo pleat and covered buttons, giving it a more casual feel. This being said, I didn’t want to take too much attention away from the feminine details which makes this bridesmaid dress so unique, so I added the leopard print belt. This belt, which you can find at Luci boutique, is a great way to give this elegant piece a playful twist, not to mention making it an instant fashion statement. Finally, to complete this look I added the plum jacket (also found at FRED). Not only is this jacket a neutral color against the bright blue, but its tailored fit meshes perfectly with the feminine details of this dress.
See, it really is true…whether it’s to work or play, you really can wear this bridesmaid dress again!
