Can these boots be worn with a dress and look good? I am 36 5'9" tall and a size 12 if it helps!

I apologise if my links don't work. I am hopeless on this iPad. I'm looking for boots to go with dresses and thick black tights for a night out. I'm thinking of this dress with them..

Hideous or nice?

Well now, I shall doubt myself no more! That's given me a boost, as I'm only recently getting back into fashion, now my baby sleeps and I have the energy! Might just have to buy the blooming dress now!

Ooh, shall we mess with their heads?

Have often wondered if someone at the guardian readsS&B, as they they often feature things which have been discussed on here...

tethersend Sun 06-Oct-13 09:30:47

AndTwoBits- did you see? Your first floral Cos dress was listed in the Guardian Style section as a must-have yesterday. here Trust yourself!

I think that will look great.

But really really like those silver boots tethersend linked to..... I want them, why did I click on this thread..?

AndTwoBits Thu 03-Oct-13 19:05:20

Ah thanks garlicvampire!

garlicvampire Thu 03-Oct-13 19:02:31

Agreed with Boils and you, TwoBits! It's a good strong look smile Have fun.

AndTwoBits Thu 03-Oct-13 18:53:47

Ok cool. I am going to end my suffering now, wear the grey dress with my biker jacket, red lippy and black tights n boots. Will try on the cos boots in shop. If they don't suit, and to be honest they're pricey anyway, at least I only have the boots to stress over. Thanks for all your opinions. They were very mixed but appreciate them all.

that blue thing looks like a parachute

MyBoilsAreFab Thu 03-Oct-13 17:54:03

I think your grey dress with the Cos boots, biker jacket, some really chunky silver jewellery, red hair and red lippie (or a strong colour you suit) would rock!

Love the dress. I bought the silver stories boots and they are v nice

feelinlucky Thu 03-Oct-13 17:30:16

Op, good taste, great combi, love it but I'm a big Cos fan.

I guess I'm getting old, Betsy... That, or 'one woman's dull is another woman's classic'... smile
Maybe it's just me but I think putting clumpy boots with such a pretty dress looks daft... It reminds me of that Morecambe and Wise sketch where they put work boots on Shirley Bassey... Clumpy shoes, for me, just look completely at odds with a beautiful, feminine dress. Just my two penneth...

Ok my last attempt at style.
This dress:

With thick black tights, and:
These shoes

Heads melted. This my last try of the day!

AndTwoBits Thu 03-Oct-13 15:24:11

Sorry I'm not ready for skirts, I am barely able to cope with dresses and they are more straight forward!

AndTwoBits Thu 03-Oct-13 15:22:47

Ok ok! Black thick tights it is so. I wouldn't go bare legged (pale and a bit chubby) and every dress is modelled with bare legs. Just thought maybe!

Somethingyesterday Thu 03-Oct-13 15:16:31

....Tan tights......?

<Ominous silence.>

Somethingyesterday Thu 03-Oct-13 15:14:10

How about

this skirt with a corresponding top?

If you're planning to be out a lot separates might be more versatile....

AndTwoBits Thu 03-Oct-13 15:09:42

I like this too. With tan tights (if this isn't naff) and black ankle boots?

AndTwoBits Thu 03-Oct-13 15:00:14

I actually quite like that dress somethingyesterday. Be nice with my red hair.. The second cos dress in the grey is better in real life, honestly. Almost silvery. And would save me buying a dress. Hmm

Somethingyesterday Thu 03-Oct-13 14:51:59

It's a bit dull for a night out....

Something more like this? as it's Christmas soon.

I have this dress already. Just to throw another idea into the mix. Would this dress work with the boots in my op better, with it being grey fleck?

AndTwoBits Thu 03-Oct-13 14:40:35

Thank you girls, you're very kind to find suggestions for me. I adore those blue and other stories boots, they are fab. I do have a really old black leather biker jacket I bought 20 years ago that is still going strong, so maybe that would tie in with black tights and boots as fizz o'clock suggests. Didn't have time to run into cos today, it'll be sat at this rate. But I really appreciate the ideas. Garlic vampire, head defo swimming, but the responses has got me all excited for my night out now. I guess the dress is a bit marmitey going by the comments. I keep going back to it tho, do I must be in the love camp.

garlicvampire Thu 03-Oct-13 14:27:45

The third Zara one's good, fizz! And in the style of OP's first choice ... Poor OP, your head must be swimming with boots now!

garlicvampire Thu 03-Oct-13 14:25:01

No worries, Jake smile I shop virtually for the things I'd like to buy, but trawl the bottom for things I can! Got it down to a fine art.
