The little white dress is a stunning classic, but it can also look dull all by itself – this is where accessories come in.

Jewellery, scarves, handbags, and shoes can add that extra oomph to this wardrobe favourite and make it look even better.


I chose to stick to white and silver trinkets for this elegant white lace dress from The Closet Label*. The pop of colour was added by my trusty pink pumps and colourful clutch.

A simple string of pearls’ necklace paired with diamond stud earrings, an assortment of rings, and a charm bracelet were all I used. The whole idea was to keep it elegant and in sync with the dress.


You could, however, wear a statement cuff or neck-piece if you wish to achieve a more dramatic look.


Add a bright purse and pair of shoes – I opted for pink pumps and a multi-coloured clutch. Other colours that you could try are teal, blue, and orange – to name a few. Just make sure your shoes and bag match.



As this is a day look – something you could wear to a brunch with the girls or a lunch date – the make-up isn’t over the top.
You can focus on the eyes, like I did – make them look bigger by outlining your eyebrows and using a light eyeshadow. Use a shade of eyeshadow that is similar to your shoes and/or bag to ensure your ensemble looks well-balanced. Finish the look with a nude or light pink shade of lipstick.


If you like, you can wear a denim jacket or a long-sleeved shrug over the dress. The pop of colour can be added with the help of a scarf too.
