What color accessories should I wear with a maroon or burgundy dress?
To make it easier for you, I won’t simply tell you what color of accessories goes well with a maroon or burgundy dress.
Since I know there are numerous nuances, I’ve decided to divide this guide into different accessories – jewelry, shoes, purses, and nail polish – and give you the best suggestions.
This way, I’ll be able to explain everything in detail to help you decide which to wear, depending on the look you’re looking for.
Remember to always keep the occasion you’re dressing for in mind so you can choose the most appropriate outfit and accessories for your event. Whether you’re going to a wedding or a formal party at night, you’ll find plenty of ideas here to get inspired!
Let’s begin with one of the most common questions when planning your outfit: should you go for silver or gold jewelry? The truth is that it will depend on your personal taste since either one of them works perfectly with a maroon or burgundy dress.
In my opinion, you can’t go wrong with choosing the simplicity of some gold earrings if invited to a wedding or a glamorous party. This jewelry color is often associated with royalty and luxury and can give your look the elegance these occasions ask for.
On the other hand, if your maroon or burgundy dress is in a darker shade, opt for some silver earrings! Going for silver jewelry is the easiest and safest way to plan your outfit, especially if you are trying to keep the attention on your dress.
If you are looking for a classy yet discreet look, I would choose fixed or hoop earrings. To dare more, fringe earrings will match perfectly, giving you a sophisticated and glamorous look.
Another trend is flower-shaped earrings. Perfect for spring or summer months, these will give you a light and delicate feel, ideal for a daytime wedding in the countryside.
However, we are not done with all the jewelry colors you can wear with your maroon or burgundy dress!
You can also pair your dress with earrings or a necklace with details in burgundy. Like silver or gold jewelry, this is one of the easiest and safest ways to make up your look and keep the attention on your dress.
On the other hand, if you want more contrast, there are other combinations you can choose. I love to see, for example, how earrings or necklaces with emerald green or light blue stones pair perfectly with a maroon or burgundy dress.
If you choose to make up your look with these jewelry colors, you can wear a clutch in the same color. However, there are many options when it comes to purses, as I am going to show you next!
Now that you know what jewelry to wear, I’m going to help you pick the perfect purse color to pair with your maroon or burgundy dress.
If you’ve been invited to a wedding and you don’t know which one you should wear, let me tell you that you can’t go wrong with a gold or silver clutch.
In fact, whether you’re a bridesmaid or a guest, both colors will give you an elegant look, keeping the spotlight on your dress. In this case, you can also wear jewelry and shoes in the same color, particularly if you want something more discreet yet sophisticated.
If you want to give more color to your look, you can opt for a navy blue, light pink, lilac, or, my favorite, dark green/emerald clutch bag (especially if wearing jewelry with details in the same color).
All these options will match your maroon or burgundy dress, being perfect for a wedding during the day. To see them all in detail, check out the article I wrote with the best purse color suggestions.
Now that you have chosen the perfect jewelry and purse for your outfit, let’s see which shoe colors you can wear with a maroon or burgundy dress.
First off, let me tell you that a pair of nude heeled sandals will match just about anything and are ideal for any occasion.
In fact, if you’ve been invited to a wedding as a bridesmaid and you’re looking for something more discreet, you can’t go wrong with nude shoes. However, I suggest asking the bride first if she’s expecting a certain color.
Also, for bridesmaids (and guests), another shoe color that will make for an elegant look is gold and silver.
I love to see how the combination of a maroon or burgundy dress with gold heeled sandals ends up a very sensual and luxurious look that is perfect for a wedding or a more glamorous evening party.
On the other hand, if your dress is in a darker shade, black shoes will also look great. The sobriety and elegance of black heeled sandals will create a powerful look, ideal for a formal evening party or a special dinner for two.
Finally, for a special occasion in spring or summer, you can also wear white shoes. However, keep in mind that this will be a flashier shoe color and will take away a bit of the attention from your dress.
If you are looking for a more discreet look that you can’t go wrong with, pick instead nude, silver, or gold shoes.
Nail polish is also considered an accessory, so I couldn’t end this guide without telling you which nail colors best match a maroon or burgundy dress.
If you’re looking for something more discreet, nude nail polish in shades of beige, pink, or gray is the best option for a very delicate and elegant look.
At the same time, you can also opt for white nail polish to do a french manicure. In fact, this nail color will be perfect for a wedding on the beach or in the countryside during the day, giving you a light summer look.
To be more daring without creating too much contrast, you can choose a nail polish similar to your dress color. In my opinion, maroon, burgundy, or dark red nails will match perfectly with your dress, giving you a dazzling look.
For a bit more color, you can opt for one of the current trends: lilac nails. Whether in a lighter or darker shade, this nail polish will give you a delicate and feminine look, ideal for a party during the hottest months of the year.
