    Help help me pick a color

    Advertisements


    so i love this dress and i think i might order it. i have two weddings to go to, one at the end of may and one at the beginning of july. would this color be appropriate for either of those or should i play it safe and get it in black? (there are no pics of it in black)

    and in either color what are some ways to make it look more "spring" or "summer"? maybe turquoise jewelry with the black? ughh i'm so bad at this suff.

    HELP

    TIA

    What are the colors for the wedding?

    I know wedding trends are changing at one point I thought you should not wear black or red to a wedding but I think that changed... (seeing as how my sisters bridesmaids and MOH wore black LOL)

    I think the black would be nice

    I have never liked a blue/black mixture because it reminds me of a bruise but as you are not in the wedding party I think the black would look great.

    I really like the red. I you can pull it off, I say go for it.

    I think you can probably make it more "season appropriate" depending on accessories. Some cute shoes & a clutch purse?

    I'm fashion-stupid.... but I'm sure other girls will have better suggestions!

    I LOVE red dresses.

    But I'm blonde/pale and have WAY too much pink/red in my skin to pull it off

    I really like the red.

    I was also under the impression it's still a faux paus to wear black to a wedding. I would advise against it, anyway.

    I'm a fan of "as-is" because that is one of my favorite colors.
