In this guide, we’ll explore how to style your John Charles dress with the perfect accessories and will feature an A-line dress, a dress with Bardot neckline and a sophisticated modern jumpsuit.

Styling an A-Line Dress 

A-line dresses are known for their classic and flattering silhouette. Here’s how to style your John Charles A-line dress with a hat and the perfect earrings:

  • Hat: For an A-line dress, consider a classic hat with a wide brim. It adds an air of timeless elegance to your outfit. Choose a hat that complements the colour of your dress, and don’t forget to secure it properly for outdoor ceremonies.
  • Earrings: A-line dresses pair beautifully with statement earrings. Chandelier or drop earrings can draw attention to your face and add a dash of drama. Consider earrings with pearls or crystals to enhance the overall elegance.

Styling a Bardot Dress with Earrings

Bardot dresses, with their off-the-shoulder design, exude timeless elegance. Here’s how to style your John Charles Bardot dress with the perfect earrings:

  • Earrings: Since the Bardot neckline already draws attention to your shoulders and neckline, opt for elegant earrings that don’t overwhelm the look. Simple studs with pearls or crystals can beautifully frame your face without competing with the dress. If you choose to wear a necklace, be sure it’s also a subtle choice.

Styling a Mother of the Bride Jumpsuit with a Handbag, Hat, and Shoes

Modern and fashion-forward, mother of the bride jumpsuits are making a statement. Here’s how to style your John Charles jumpsuit with a handbag, hat, and shoes:

  • Handbag: Choose a sophisticated clutch or handbag that complements the colour of your jumpsuit. Ensure it’s spacious enough to carry your essentials while adding a touch of style to your overall look.
  • Hat: If the  jumpsuit is more on the classic side, consider a stylish fascinator. It adds a modern touch without overpowering the outfit. If your jumpsuit is more extravagant, a wide-brimmed hat can enhance the drama.
  • Shoes: Opt for chic and comfortable heels or wedges that match the style of your jumpsuit. Strappy sandals can also be an excellent choice for a more relaxed and contemporary look.
