How to Glamorize a Pink Bridesmaid Dress

Embrace contrast by adding a dash of dark color such as black on your pink bridesmaid dress. A black sash or trimmings will do the trick along with simple jewelry, such as a cocktail ring and diamond studs. Complete the look with a small shoulder bag in black. Black pumps are also the best shoe choice regardless of the style of the pink dress or the shade of pink.
For spring and summer weddings, neutral accessories are the ideal choices. Try on a pair of nude heels and matching clutch with a little glitter to give your appearance an oomph factor. Just make sure that the neutral accessories will complement your skin tone. Any pink hue, whether it’s deep magenta, baby pink or dusty mauve, will be enhanced by dangling earrings in gold and/or crystal.

When accessorizing a pink bridesmaid dress, keep the accessories to a minimum. Pink is a statement color in itself and overloading your pink dress with accessories will not look good for the overall appearance.
