Researching bridesmaid dresses for your wedding? A trending theme is to go shimmery and glittery with a silver bridesmaid dress. It complements a white wedding gown beautifully and is a really elegant colour scheme. However, it can often be difficult to work out how to style a silver dress. Read on for our guide on what to wear with a silver bridesmaid dress and our favourite accessories in 2022.

What to wear with a silver dress? 

When it comes to styling a silver dress, there are a few things to consider. Why not try:

  • Mix and match with gold accessories
  • Pair your shimmering dress with a small, elegant clutch that doesn't detract from your gown
  • Try midnight blue earrings, shoes or evening bag 
  • Emerald green and purple jewellery can make your dress pop

What to avoid with a silver bridesmaid dress?

Silver is a statement shade to wear, and probably one you're not used to donning every day. If you're wondering if there's anything best avoided when wearing this showstopping colour, consider avoiding these things: 

  • Warm tones like reds, oranges and yellows don't go well at all with silver
  • Chunky handbags will detract from your dress
