The right accessories can completely transform a dress. So, if you have been having a hard time finding the "perfect" wedding gown, or you simply want to have a different look at your ceremony and reception, consider an overskirt. These opulent options from Sottero and Midgley showcase how much they can look like they were made to go with your dress, adding extra volume and a bit of added romance.

Although overskirts can work with a variety of silhouettes, they are most dramatic with sheath gowns, as they completely change the shape of the dress. Above, this pretty sheath uses a light-as-air overskirt to give it a flowing silhouette.

 You also don't have to completely wrap the overskirt around your gown. If you want to show off intricate detailing (such as the beadwork in this Sottero and Midgley dress above), simply attach it to the sides and leave the front of the gown unobscured.

 Traditional brides love an overskirt because it no longer makes them choose between their modern style and a timeless aesthetic. So, go ahead and pick out that alluring dress you've had your eye on (but worry that it's not classic enough for your ceremony) and purchase a detachable overskirt to walk down the aisle in. You can take it off before you hit the dance floor at your reception.
