Contrasting or Matching, how to pick your accessories
Posted On: 05-12-2017

Matching or Contrasting Accessories?


Do you match your accessories to your outfit? Or do you use a contrasting colour? This is our advice for you.




Traditionally you will have a headpiece in the same colour as your outfit, and a shoe and bag that lends itself to the outfit, being it gold or silvers to pick up on certain parts, or dyed to match the outfit. This can be perfect for having the whole look tied in together. If your outfit has a lace or print in more than one colour this can be a great way to accessorise your outfit, without having too much of a block of colour.




For the less traditional mother of the bride or groom, we have many funky and different outfits. These outfits look great when paired with contrasting coloured accessories. This can also be a great way to ensure that you have shoes, bag and headpiece that you will be able to wear with future outfits. We have sold many bright fuchsia outfits with black accessories, and this gives a really dramatic look. So long as you do not bring too many different colours into your outfit, this can really help you stand out from the crowd. We usually would suggest that you have no more than two colours from your accessories and your outfit, so if you are to opt for a contrasting colour, then make sure your hat, shoes and bag, match each other.


As always with weddings, there is no hard and fast rules about the colour matching, it is up to each of the guests, and of course, what the bride would like. If you need any advice, our friendly and honest sales assistants will be more than happy to talk you through all aspects of wedding wear, and we will work tirelessly to ensure that you find the perfect outfit for the Big Day!
