Everyone knows one of the benefits of owning a little black dress is that you can accessorise it with just about anything. But what if your dream formal dress comes in raspberry pink or atomic tangerine?
Shoes and handbags in black, silver and gold seem to be the standard evening wear choices, but for some shades of dress they just won’t do. On the other hand, you might find the coloured accessories you’re after, but the style is all wrong. The good news is that colour matching services are on hand to help you out of this dilemma, and leave your fellow formal-goers green with envy.
Colour matching services allow you to create custom made accessories in the perfect shade. They can assist in helping you fashion your dream outfit by dying your shoes or handbag any colour of the rainbow. Match your accessories to the exact tone of your dress, or go for a contrasting colour that will make your outfit pop. It’s a chance to show off your personality and try something unique and fun.
I spoke to Ana at Deseo Bridal and Evening Shoes, Australia’s longest running professional shoe dying studio, who says the service is becoming more popular with formal-goers every year. The process is simple—pick your shoe style, then sift through the 140 available ready-to-dye colours, developed to reflect current fashion trends.
Still can’t find the perfect shade on the mother of all colour wheels? Then they’ll happily invent one for you, mixed in store. If you’re not really sure what tint to go for, get some advice from the colourists at Deseo. Staff make sure they get it right the first time, and only choose reliable suppliers so they can guarantee their products.
“Our shoes are hand painted in water colours. It’s like creating art,” says Ana.
The result is that you’ll be able to show off personalised, one-off accessories. The benefit of employing a colour matching is that there are no restrictions—you can get exactly what you want. Can’t find a pair of heels in eggplant? Look no further! Been thinking about a cupcake lemon evening bag? It can be done!
“There’s no comparison to a pair of bright, personalised shoes. It’s unique, but affordable.”
So if you’re after something a bit special for your formal, let a colour matching service help you design your dream outfit. You’ll be one of a kind, so strut your stuff and paint the town red!
