Your taupe color shoes (3 inch pumps) will be perfect with your dress. You can carry a taupe color bag or choose a bag in a color that is in the print of your dress. Another option would be a pewter or a soft gold color bag and wear matching metal (gold or silver) jewelry to look très_chic. A hankerchief dress is so feminine, sexy and flowy and will definitely make a fashion statement in an ivory and raspberry floral print. It is also very versatile. By changing your accessories, you can turn your dress into a casual weekend outfit. Swap your the pumps and the raspberry shrug / shawl for a cardigan or a denim jacket and maybe a cross-body bag and sandals and you have another outfit.
Evening Bags 101
If you want one evening bag to go with everything choose gold, gold material/fabric, silver, or silver material/fabric. The perfect size evening bag will hold what you need to carry with you. Carry you lip color and makeup ( as little as possible), a mini wallet for ID, cards and cash, a travel fragrance, your cell phone, a mini portable cell phone charger and some business cards.
Wearing Prints and Patterns
When wearing prints and patterns or choosing anything to wear, we want to accentuate the positive. The first thing to think about when selecting prints or patterned clothing is the proportion or scale. Large prints will call attention to you and your size. Small women don’t look good in clothing with large prints or patterns. Large women are already noticeable and will just call attention to their size when wearing large prints or patterns. Scale the prints to your size and you’re “good to go.”
