Silver and Sparkly

Add some sparkle and an elegant touch to your prom outfit by using sparkly silver accessories and a matching clutch! Silver shades go perfectly with blue, black and orange hues. Be careful not to overdo it – if you’re wearing an embellished dress and a sparkly clutch, keep the rest of the accessories and the shoes really simple.
