Hi, I'm trying to put together a look.  I will be attending a party for new years and i want to look great.  I have a strapless dress that is right above my knees.   So, I would like to know from you'll what color shoes i should wear, to what kind of accessories would look good, and what color clutch i should have?  Any other suggestions would be great.  The dress i have is featured on this video at the end  http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/33508940/vp/34327344#34327344.  I would really appreciate your ideas.  Thank You.

THIS IS WHAT I WORE TO THE NEW YEAR PARTY....

Sorry, for the late reply, just been busy.  So, I wore magenta open toe shoes


and I didn't have a clutch, cause I had forgotten that the dress had pockets....totally cool...didn't have to hold anything...had my hands free to hold my drink...Big smile
and i wore this necklace that i had for a while it's from White House | Black Market...love the store...


and that was all  i did...i can't believe it all came together....thank you all for your advice it really helped me put my outfit together....Happy New Year...

I can't load the video. Generally speaking, I think for a black dress minimal accessories look good. Maybe just longish drop metal earrings that go with your face shape and hairdo.

I'm picturing shoes that stand out a little bit from the dress, maybe a colour other than black, such as gold or bronze, or even red. Strappy shoes or open-toe, I guess that depends on what you feel like and how dressy the party is. Pantyhose or tights colour is also an influencing factor.



Do you feel like wearing something dramatic? Something flirty and feminine? Something warm and elegant? Just see how you feel and coordinate your outfit accordingly. If you're happy and comfortable with your ensemble, you will rock it no matter what anyone else might say about it.

Sometimes a floppy and roomy clutch goes well with a black dress, maybe something in deeper and richer tones. I think overly blingy clutches are tacky looking. Here are some clutch styles that I think would look nice with the dress you've described:





Don't forget to paint your nails for the new year party.. just for fun! :)

i think a black dress needs a pop of color...if it's a business new year's party then i would suggest a big necklace or something cause you dont want to show too much skin and i would match the shoes with the clutch :)

I would wear colorful heels :)

Ummm....a color like Dark Purple or Hot pink or something in those shades. But not a light color! That would look weird


I dont like these shoes, but this is the dark purple color im talking about :)

Since your dress has that bow on it, it would be best to wear heels that dont have any bows or any other decor that sticks out on them. Buckles and all that are fine, but no bows on the heels!

& i'd use maybe a dark gold metallic clutch.

I love the dress, it's my style
 
Hair: Messy Bun or Side Ponytail
 
Neck: Silver Pendant ( Hearts are the nicest kind)
 
Hands: Silver Charm Bracelet or Silver Watch
 
Ear: Personally i wouldn't wear earings ( maybe diamond studs) but if you choose to wear them then you can wear Chandelier Earings
 
Purse:  Bold Color ( Purple, Teal or Red) Peep Toe
 
Shoe: Match the Clutch
 
Hope you have Fun @ the Party
