Is it alright to wear a heavy linen sleeveless dress in Sptember to Washington DC? The top of the dress is medium pink, dark brown bottom, jacket (pink – matches top of dress) & has 3 quarter sleeves. I would be wearing it with brown patent shoes & a brown patent clutch purse. It is for a Bar Mitzvah.

Since you are wearing your pink linen top and jacket with a dark brown bottom and brown accessories sounds like a great choice for a fall Bar Mitzvah !

Women’s fashion accessories such as handbags, scarves and belts allow you to vary your basic clothing. The accessories you wear should go together. Two accessories in the same color are enough. For example if you are wearing a gray dress with a red belt. You can add a scarf that has grey, red and black in it. Then wear black shoes and carry a black handbag. Stylish women over time have pulled an entire outfit together, developed their individual style and / or added a final touch to their outfits with the right accessories.
