Gold Silver Dress & Fancy Friday linkup

gold silver dress

I have had this gold silver dress in my closet for a while now. Bought when I thought there should be some glitter in my closet. Still agree with that thought, I need a sequin top too! Lol. I am not a silver lover at all, but a gold dress alone can seem very trashy on me. Although I’ve been looking for a nice golden sweater for ages. Laura was wearing a, to me, perfect one that she considers a Good-Bye.

How the h… do I style a gold and silver dressgun metal ankle boots

Anyway, this gold and silver dress. I think it is very beautiful, has a v-neck which I find ideal, the length is good, it fits perfectly. But I just don’t know what to wear with it. I feel it needs something bright otherwise it feels a bit funeral ish to me, don’t know why, I am a bit weird… But on the other hand I don’t even like anything bright on this dress. White….mm….don’t really like white. Black seems the best option for me but yes, that funeral thing. Green? Blue? Matchy matchy or not. Bookend way (yes Sheila, I blame you!)

Not so easy gold and silver dressshort jacket with gold threats=

So, actually this seemed like such a simple dress to me, but it isn’t. I can’t wear too many accessories because then it quickly becomes way too much with that gold and silver. I don’t really like adding a color. Should I leave it with just the dress and ankle boots? No, I added this lovely short jacket that also has a bit of gold in it! This is the best option for me. No statement jewelry, but cool boots. And that cool jacket.

Would this be one of my favorite dresses? Yes, because I really think it’s a lovely one and I think I can add a long wool black cardigan when it gets cold and it would still look good. Because of the different textures. But I would like to hear your suggestions!gold silver dress

    Love the contrast between the classic styling of this great dress and the trendy metallic blend of silver and gold. That jacket and those darling booties are perfect with it.

    The dress looks fantastic on you, Nancy, and I love the cropped jacket you added. I can see though while it is difficult to style. I don’t think it needs anything added, but if you were to experiment with color, maybe red?

      Thanks for the suggestion Michelle. I tried red, but red isn’t a good color for me.

    That is a beautiful dress and I really like the other metallic pieces with it! I think you could certainly wear other colours with this dress, navy would look great too! 🙂

    Thanks for the link up! Hope you are having a good week 🙂

    I can see why it’s a challenge to style because most colours simply wouldn’t work with it. But you found a way by using texture and those glorious silver boots. Stunning outfit, I pinned it on Pinterest.

    I don’t think you need to worry about how to style and wear this dress Nancy because you just nailed it. It was a good choice not to add jewellery as the dress is sparkly enough. Love your choice of the jacket and those silver boots. Hope you will get the chance to wear this glamorous outfit often

    You’ve made a great job of it Nancy, the jacket makes it very elegant and the touch of black adds contrast. Too much color might lose the impact!

    Nancy, this dress is gorgeous and you wear it so well. I love that cropped jacket with it and of course, I always love your metallic booties. This would be a hard dress for me to style as well mostly because the color itself would not be so good on me. I am wondering what it would look like with bright pink though or maybe your neon boots? Maybe? But if not, it looks amazing this way!

    I can see why you love this dress Nancy, it is so good on you , a perfect fit. Metallics are always tricky to match with other colours I find . The cropped jacket works perfectly . Many thanks for hosting Nancy, enjoy your weekend.

    I love a wrap dress, I think it’s my favorite classic style! This one looks great on you, and you did a really nice job of creating an outfit with a difficult color. You give me inspiration to wear my “gilver” shoe booties- I am always stuck on how to style them, with gold or sliver. Have a nice weekend and thanks for the link up.

    I’m hearing you on your dilemma, Nancy. I think metallics are very tricky to combine with other colours. Apart from a silvery Lurex jumper, I don’t have any metallics in my wardrobe. If I were to style that dress, it would be a lot of trial and error, which might result in colour combination I’ve yet to think of. But I do love the look you came up with, Nancy. I love how you opted for the black belt and that dress and cropped jacket look like they were made for each other! xxx

      Thanks Ann. I like this jacket on it too. But Sheila suggested biker boots and a leather jacket, so I will try that too!

  22. 2nd October 2020 / 18:22

    Nancy, that IS a beautiful dress! You accessorized it perfectly with the jacket and those gorgeous boots! That’s a great look for the holidays, too. Subtle, but elegant.

    Ooh, I got a shout-out, thanks, Nancy! 🙂

    I really like how you styled it here – subtly matching to the grey tones of the silver is the way to go. However, given your rock & roll aesthetic, I’d suggest you pair this with studded boots and a leather jacket!

    Thanks so much for the link-up – I’ll be joining you shortly!

    Hi, Nancy – You nailed a great look! You could also try pink with this dress since pink goes with gray. Or you could try pale colors or jewel tones. Also, color therapists would recommend silver to protect your health from viruses such as the Coronavirus. So it’s a good dress and good boots to try to wear more often this year. Thanks for sharing your daring outfit. – Angie, http://www.yourtrueselfblog.com
