A black tie optional Harvest Ball is a wonderful event that calls for dressing up. Your long sleeve, black, maxi dress will be perfect for this occasion. You have lots of options when it comes to color and styles of shoes to wear. Black shoes would look very elegant and will allow you to wear a piece of statement jewelry (necklace or earrings) that will draw attention upward to your face area. Closed toe, sling back or dressy style sandals would look chic with your dress. Black suede pumps are another stylish option. Carry a black bag or sequin bag that ties into the jewelry you are wearing. If you want to go with silver, gold, a colored shoe carry a matching clutch style bag. There are also dressy style shoes in black with silver, gold etc. Choose the style of shoe that you’ll feel comfortable in dancing the night away.
Jewelry That Makes A Statement
Jewelry that makes a statement sends a message about who you are and what you value, conveys confidence and can make an outfit chic. I think what you notice first about someone is their personal statement. A piece of jewelry that catches your eye when you see a woman qualifies as a “statement” piece of jewelry. Something that stands out from everything else.
