What to Wear: Bridesmaid Accesories

What to Wear: Bridesmaid Accesories

Devoted reader and expat, Sara, asked for help finding jewelry and shoes to go with a bridesmaid dress. “I would love to see what your ideas are for shoes and jewelry, both for the wedding, and for wearing it again later.” I love requests! Sara also asked for a “reality” version with a budget around $300 and a “fantasty” version with no limits. You can click on each photo to see it larger.

Earrings – Pearl and diamond drops for $1,500. Still pretty subdued since this is a wedding after all, you don’t want to show up with giant gems blazing!
Cardigan – On sale from Marc Jacobs for $795.
Bracelet – Gorgeous belle epoque bracelet with 225 rose cut diamonds and natural pearls. $10,750.
Shoes – Perky Kate Spade sandals in brown satin with a bow for $275.
Total – $13,320

Earrings – Lantern drops from Anthropologie for $38.
Bracelets – Two of the small gold tube bracelets from the Met for $40 each.
Cardigan – In bright papaya from J.Crew for $68.
Shoes – Enzo peep-toe pumps in a soft metallic color for $88.95.
Total – $274.95

Surprisingly, I kind of like the “reality” version better. I think it is the coral and gold colors with the brown dress. Although, I could really go for that pearl and diamond bracelet if I had an extra $10,000 lying around.

    I really like the bright J. Crew cardigan, so I vote for reality too. That almost never happens, does it? 🙂

    I think the stores are pretty consistent with the online shop when it comes to jewelry. You can always have someone call the store to check.
