However, it does not follow that gold accessories are the perfect pair for gold dresses.
When it comes to shoes, black or nude colors are safe and will complement any dress. Pairing gold shoes with a gold dress can be risky but if you find the right style of dress and shoes, the combination is worth taking a risk. Gold stilettos or peep-toes go together with a long patterned gown in gold or an unstructured one similar to the one worn by actress Meryl Streep at the 2014 Oscars.
A nude or muted gold knee-length cocktail outfit can be paired with deep maroon or crimson pumps. Wearing gold pumps in addition to a your gold colored dress can be a fashion disaster. Also, go for a natural makeup look and carry a nude or black clutch.
One thing to keep in mind is not to wear too much jewelry when wearing a gold dress. A gold sheath dress looks spectacular when paired with a simple diamond necklace or pearls. For a fun gold dress, use funky necklaces in either brown or black and skip the earrings when wearing a necklace. Again, avoid using gold accessories on a gold gown.
Pair a strapless dress with dangly earrings, bangles and bracelets in brown or black. A bold pairing would be a trendy gold dress and leather boots and belt. Gold dresses look stunning when accessorized with a bracelet having a diamond clasp.
Sporting a small black or nude clutch assures to complement a gold dress and will not clash with it. However, if there is a need to use a bag in bold colors, consider a maroon, brown or red clutch.
When it comes to makeup, avoid using bronze or metallic colors and instead stick to a look that is natural. A deep plum or scarlet red lipstick would create a movie star look.
Bear in mind that a gold bridesmaid dress is already an attention grabber so keep everything simple. Confidence is the best accessory so hold your head high, smile and have fun.
