That's what I was thinking, too. I wasn't sure which color though, red, green, blue?

I never wear grey, so I can't figure out how to plan out an outfit around it. This is the first grey that looks good on me. My skin tone is tan or a medium olive.

Personally, I love electric blue and grey, bright pink and grey and turquoise and grey. (Yellow too, but I am darker than you are, yellow is hard to pull off for lighter people. :P)

Personally, I don't like red and grey.

Nude shoes, bright clutch could be great! Or bright shoes, contrasting clutch. I am pretty colorful, so I might go for turquoise clutch, electric blue shoes if I had them.

Bases on the shoes in my closet right now, I'd go for a pink or turquoise clutch and the following shoes:


I've got a similar pair of shoes like these a from a few seasons ago. My snake print is lighter and warmer, more of a taupe/cream/light grey mix. So the snake is pretty subtle.

Thanks for the ideas, jade408. The turquoise sounds interesting. I'll see how that combination looks on me.

This dress will work with most jewel tones and brights! Purple and grey is always great. And this seasons Oxblood would be striking in shoes. Depending on how deep the neckline is on you, I'd go with a "statement" necklace if you don't have much cleavage, and something simple if there is a lot of cleavage.

I really like this jewelry designer for understated pieces. I am likely biased as her shop is down the road from my apartment.

I was shopping online for myself, and found some accessories I thought might pull your outfit together nicely.

You also said you like turquoise. I found some light and dark turquoises.




Reds





I like these blacks for your dress.




Good luck with your choices!

I'll agree with Jade that light gray looks really great with electric blue and turquoise...anything in that color family.

I usually stay away from gray so it would be hard for me also

Thanks, paris bonbon, Jade, Mentat and Pear Martini.

I like both the dark turquoise and the red. I guess I'll decide as I shop around.

Thanks so much Mentat. Wow, you went to a lot of trouble! Those pictures are great. This wedding is going to be black tiel, so since I'm not wearing a gown, I need to accessorize to make the outfit look as formal as possible. The accessories you chose are excellent. Where did you find them?

You're welcome. I had the day off, so it was fun way to spend the afternoon.

I can't remember specifically. But I was mostly on Zappos, Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, DSW, Heels.com, and Charmandchain.com.
