Islamic Evening Dresses UK Accessories

What do we mean when we talk about accessorising? Essentially, it’s adding decoration to your outfit. Depending on the occasion, your choice of accessories can completely transform your look from casual daywear to glamorous evening goddess. Take a maxi dress for example – if you team it with a denim jacket, trainers and sunglasses, then this is very much a summer daytime look. But add high heels, a stunning diamante necklace with matching earrings and a clutch bag, and you’ve got yourself a head-turning and sophisticated party look going on.

Choosing Your Jewellery

First things first, you don’t necessarily need to break the bank by wearing authentic stones to look a million dollars. Costume jewellery can do just as good a job of providing the perfect enhancements to your look. But choosing the right type of jewellery can be tricky.

If your dress is a solid, strong shade, then you might want to wear some multi-coloured jewellery, so long as one of the tones is the same as your dress colour. However, if you’re wearing patterns or prints, then it would be best to stick to a single choice of metal and stone. A statement piece, such as a necklace looks incredibly glamorous with your evening gown, but if you opt for dazzling earrings instead, then make sure your hair is pulled back to show them off.

Beautiful Belts

Belts are a great way to accentuate the waistline of your evening gown, providing you with a flattering yet graceful silhouette. You should wear this accessory at the smallest point of your waist for the best fit, which is usually found above your belly button. If you’re opting for a fabric belt, such as a sash, then take care to make sure that it’s either a perfect tonal match for your dress, or it offers a striking contrast, such as a black belt with a white Islamic evening dresses UK gown. Alternatively, if you prefer a metallic or leather belt, go for a narrow style to avoid it being too heavier a look for your evening wear.

Remember also that if you’re styling your outfit with a low-hanging necklace, then you should avoid wearing a belt altogether, as it will create a chaotic look.

Stunning Scarves

Karim London offers a beautiful array of stunning scarves to complement your Islamic evening dresses UK ensemble. Our exquisite range of Arabic scarves and shawls provide the perfect finishing touch to your gown. Not only are they completely timeless, but they also offer warmth in case there’s an evening chill in the air.

Clutch Bags

No evening ensemble would be complete without the addition of a glitzy clutch bag to offer both fashion and function whilst pulling your outfit together perfectly. If you’re wearing a vivid, colourful dress, then it’s best to keep your bag neutral, perhaps opting for black, white or metallic tones. Choosing fabrics such as satin or velvet add a certain opulence to your look, and you might also be drawn to those with sequins or other gemstone embellishments.
