Only the most daring darlings can put on a hot pink dress and pull it off. The way you choose to accessorize with the dress is key. Start off by getting a general idea of the color you should select for your accessories, then you can move onto choosing the actual pieces.
The delicate and soft cream color of pearls goes beautifully with a hot pink dress. Not only is the color just right, the classy appearance of the pearls neutralizes the hotness of the pink. Go with a pair of pearl earrings and a matching necklace. If you choose pearl-colored accessories, avoid obvious, cheesy-looking costume jewelry with this color dress. Remember that you're going to draw a lot of attention when wearing hot pink, so you'd better take care of the details. Either wear real pearl jewelry or a very good imitation.
If you want to add to the flashiness of your outfit and draw even more attention, wear gold jewelry with your hot pink dress. You've got to be a bit strategic though, and don't overdo it. Wear a simple gold choker necklace and matching bracelet --- that's it. If you really want to wear earrings, either wear a pair of tiny gold studs or remove the necklace and wear a pair of chandelier earrings instead. Matter of fact, if you can find jewelry that has both hot pink and gold colors, even better. These colors look amazing together.
Too much hot pink is a little...well, too much. But if you really want to stick with a pink theme with this outfit, match the dress with soft pink or baby pink accessories. For instance, a light pink bejeweled chandelier necklace or light pink-tinted bangle bracelets. The color should be so soft that someone could barely distinguish the pink tint unless she get close.
Your shoes are probably the most important accessory choice to match with a hot pink dress. Choose wisely because if you get the right pair you will be show stopping in that hot pink dress. Again, a pair of gold stillettos will pair just right with the hot pink. If not gold, choose a pair of light tan or matching hot pink high-heeled pumps. One other accessory you may be wondering about is the purse -- simply choose a clutch that matches the color of your shoes.
