Happy middle of the week, everyone! I’m excited to share today’s post, as it’s the second installment to the 3-part series of wedding guest outfit ideas on transforming a single dress for distinct looks through the use of jewelry.
Today’s look features one trend that has been making the options for mixing and matching jewelry of all sorts of metal composition possible– Mixed metal jewelry! To complete this look, a pair of rose gold and sterling silver earrings and a sterling silver necklace from Blue Nile were selected.
Keeping in theme with budget-friendly wedding outfit ideas, this is the same dress from the first outfit idea (a romantic, vintage-inspired styling can be seen here!) and each of the jewelry pieces in this look come in at $75 or under!
red maxi dress: Lulu’s
nude heels: Franco Sarto
long leaf necklace: Blue Nile (exact)
geometric dangle earrings: Blue Nile (exact)
What made the styling of these gorgeous geometric dangle earrings a challenge was figuring out a way to keep the hair and makeup simple and clean so that the jewelry could be the focus. I tucked my hair back in a reverse bun, and wore a bold red lip to stand up against the statement of these earrings. To make things even more interesting, I added a pair of bold gold-tone sunglasses to accentuate the rose gold and silver in the earrings and the necklace. Such a fun mix!
These dangle earrings are the perfect piece for framing the face, as they hang just shy of 2″ for a statement that could be made to match any coloured dress. The leaf necklace, while designed with more intricate details of the hammered edge, paired well with the geometric composition of the earrings. The opera-length of the leaf necklace helped to bring distance without competing too closely with the earrings for a complimentary accent to the high neckline of this dress.
Compared to the first styling of this dress for wedding guest outfit ideas, this bold look with mixed metal jewelry is such a different take. The accessories definitely shifts the focus from the red to the mixed metal jewelry, making this dress and easy piece to re-wear to another event!
Can’t wait to show you the last styling of this dress in next week’s post!
