Dear Fashion Girl,
I got this dress for a Christmas party. I got it in white, not pink. I want to know if it will be okay to wear a leopard print clutch. I also want to wear several large bracelets on one hand. Which bracelets would you recommend (color, size etc.)? And what shoes? I'm not very good with heels. And I have really short hair-- can I wear hair accessories? Which ones would you recommend? I want to go for a punky look. Thank you!
Cute dress! In white or pink, this is a great foundation to create an awesome holiday party look!
A leopard print (or any animal print, for that matter) clutch would be sensational with a black and white dress. Make sure you get a print that has black and preferably a little white or off-white in the pattern. If you get one that's mostly brown, your options for adding more color to your white dress become limited. Here's a pink Animal Fold Over Clutch ($10) from Wet Seal that you might like.
I love the idea of several chunky bracelets on your arm. Since you want a punk edge look for a cuff with studs on it or something in leather, like this Leather Cuff Bracelet ($20) from Urban Outfitters (right). Then mix in a couple of colorful bangles or charm bracelets to add a splash of color.
Since you don't feel too comfortable in heels, look for a festive shoe with a low heel, or opt for a wedge, which will give you the height of a pump with the added support of a wedge heel. The Babe Sandal ($80) by J. Renee (left) has a low heel, plus black rhinestones make it a little edgy.
Complete your holiday look with fun hair accessories (you hair can never be too short for a cute headband or barrette!). May I suggest a piece-y, spiky 'do with a Multi Elastic Hairband ($3) from Forever 21 (right)?
I hope you have an amazing time at your party! Happy Holidays!
