If you’re unsure which accessory color to use with a pale blue or light blue dress, fear not, you’ve come to the right place. Regardless of the occasion, in this article, you will find the best tips for jewelry, purse, shoes, and even nail polish for a perfect look.
Whether you are a bridesmaid or a guest, you will find a lot of ideas to inspire you to choose the accessories that best match the occasion and your personal taste.
What accessory color to wear with a light blue dress?
Light blue dresses are still trendy, and they give that light and delicate look that everyone loves. Easy to match, they will be perfect for a country or beach wedding, giving that serene feeling of a spring afternoon.
Because they are a classic for bridesmaids and guests, there are many doubts about the best accessory color. In fact, they are the ones that will dictate the look, keeping it more discreet or bolder.
Anyway, regardless of whether it’s a more casual or formal party, I’ll tell you below everything you need to know to choose the perfect earring, clutch, sandal, and even nail polish color to match your light blue dress.
Often, after choosing the dress and shoes, the same question always pops up: should I choose silver or gold jewelry?
The truth is, both accessory colors will match your light blue dress very well and are perfect for a more formal party or a glamorous occasion.
Since it’s mainly a matter of personal taste, it is important to pay attention to some details when choosing the right color for you, such as skin tone or hair color.
If your skin’s undertone is warmer, I recommend avoiding silver jewelry and wearing gold. If it is cooler, the ideal is to use silver earrings or necklaces. As for dark or tanned skin, any accessory colors will look good.
It’s also necessary to consider your hair color, with gold being more appropriate for blonde or red hair and silver for dark hair. However, it is always a matter of personal taste and the important thing is that you feel beautiful and comfortable with the accessories you choose.
On the other hand, if you want to add more color, a safe and elegant way to coordinate your look is to choose green accessories.
In fact, an emerald or mint green drop earring will look great with your light blue dress. It’s a very classic jewelry option for a more glamorous evening party.
Alternatively, for an irresistible party look, you can choose earrings with hot pink stones or even fuchsia, matching with a clutch bag in the same color. This combination of accessories will give you a very sophisticated and daring look. It’s perfect if you’re going to wear a sparkly dress.
Finally, you can’t go wrong with wearing earrings or necklaces with light or dark blue details. It’s a very harmonious and elegant way to compose the look.
One of the easiest and safest ways to coordinate your look is to match the color of the purse with the earring. So, if you are going to wear gold or silver jewelry, a clutch bag of the same color will give you an elegant and sophisticated look.
These options are ideal for a wedding or a more glamorous party. In fact, if you were invited to be a bridesmaid, a silver or gold clutch is a great option to keep the eyes on your dress and on the real protagonist of the day: the bride.
On the other hand, you can’t go wrong when choosing a purse of the same color as the dress. For such, opt for a different shade to create some contrast. A navy blue clutch is one of my favorites, especially when the jewelry has details in the same color.
Finally, if you want to dare a little more or add more color to your look, I recommend using a coral, hot pink, purple, lilac, emerald green, or even a colored clutch (nacre).

If you’re not sure what color shoes to wear for a wedding or formal party, know that you can’t go wrong when choosing a nude heel sandal.
In fact, this shoe color is very versatile and will match practically everything, giving you a discreet but elegant look.
For this reason, they are the best option for bridesmaids looking for a neutral shoe color that doesn’t take the attention from their dress. However, I would recommend you always ask the bride if she doesn’t want a specific color.
Another shoe color for bridesmaids and guests that can’t go wrong is gold or silver. In my opinion, a silver heel sandal will perfectly match the cooler shade of your light blue dress, giving you a very harmonious and sophisticated look.
On the other hand, a black or white shoe will also be an option, but it will create more contrast. In fact, a white heel sandal will be perfect for a more soft and delicate look, and it’s ideal for a wedding in the countryside or on the beach during the warmer months of the year.

Since nail polish is also an accessory, I couldn’t finish this guide without giving you the best nail color suggestions to use with a pale blue or light blue dress.
If you want to draw attention to your dress, you can opt for neutral nude nail polish in shades of beige, pink, or grey. This will be a great choice for bridesmaids looking for a more discreet look since it will give elegance and delicacy.
Alternatively, you can also use white nail polish to make a French manicure. In fact, both nail colors can be used on any occasion, and it’s perfect for a wedding in the countryside or on the beach, offering a look that matches the lightness of summer days.
To be more daring or add more color to your look, you can also combine your light blue dress with a red, burgundy, dark blue, hot pink, or even fuchsia nail polish.
