While wearing white lace to a special occasion (especially a wedding) can be difficult, a grey lace dress is arguably an easier choice. What’s more, it’s a doddle to accessorise with either eye-popping brights or glamorous metallics. Pick one out for your next big event and wait for the compliments to roll in.
Exude elegant charm in a grey lace dress
Accentuate the dusty tones of grey lace dresses by wearing them with accessories in similarly soft colours. Blush tones and pastel pinks work like a dream - to create a feminine daytime look that would also suit low-key (but still dressy) events like baby showers, pick out a short lace dress in grey and wear it with some suede flat shoes in dusky pink. Add delicate rose gold jewellery to finish the outfit with finesse. If you’ve picked out a grey lace gown to wear to a wedding and are struggling to find the right footwear to go with it, a pair of heeled nude shoes with a patent finish is a safe bet.
Offset a grey lace dress with bright accessories
Grey is a beautifully soft shade - so adding pops of colour can give a lace dress in grey a fresh, playful twist. Doing this is as easy as picking out coloured accessories - orange, yellow and purple look particularly striking against a grey fabric - but without going overboard. Try wearing a statement necklace with your dress. Alternatively, chunky earrings in contemporary, architectural shapes will contrast with the timeless lace fabric. If you’d like your dress to have a little more structure, go for a tonal look by pulling it together (literally) with a grey or silver leather belt.
