A silk trench dress is really the ultimate chic, everyday dress. It can take you from the office to the bar with ease and style. So, whether you’re glamming up, or toning things down, here are the ten ultimate accessories to wear with a silk trench dress that will suit any budget.
The handbag you choose will often come down to the time of day you’re wearing your silk trench dress. If you’re off to work then a larger bucket-style handbag will work well to hold everything you need for the day, and for evening a small clutch or chain strap bag will look effortlessly chic and be big enough to house your phone, money and makeup.
The way the silk trench dress fits makes it perfect for accentuating a necklace. For evening, go bold with a statement necklace and a pop of colour, and for the daytime, a simple gold or silver chain necklace works nicely, adding a hint of polish to your outfit.
Beautiful and practical, a scarf is a fantastic way to accessorise an outfit and keep you warm at the same time. A dainty silk scarf tied at the neck adds a touch of french glamour, while a bigger wrap scarf will keep your shoulders and arms warm in the cooler months.
The season will largely dictate which shoes you choose to pair with your silk trench dress. In the summer, opt for flat sandals or open-toe heels. For winter, try knee-high boots or even trainers for an edgier look. The beauty of a silk trench dress is that it is versatile so you can let your footwear shine.
Much like a necklace, you can let your earrings do the talking. Make a statement with bold drop earrings or large colourfulstuds, or keep things more subtle with pearl studs or skinny gold hoops.
With such a simple yet elegant dress as your canvas, you can choose to be a little daring and add something a bit different to your outfit. Brooches are making a comeback and they’re a great way to show off your personality. Place it on one side of your collar for maximum exposure.
The last thing you need is your delicate silk trench dress getting trashed by the weather. Rain, muddy puddles and silk are not friends. So, make sure you’re protected at all times with a chic umbrella.
While not seen, the underwear you choose to wear with your silk trench dress is very important. Silk is very delicate and as such you can often see any creases and seams in your underwear. Opt for seamless panties and a well-fitting bra to avoid any unwanted lumps and bumps.
You certainly look the part so now it’s time to make sure you smell the part too. A delicate covering of your favourite perfume will have you feeling a million dollars and smelling amazing too!
Last but not least, the best accessory you can wear with any outfit is confidence. So, hold your head up high because you look fabulous in that silk trench dress!
