I'm loving the terracotta colours in shops at the moment and I have a few tops that colour like this one from Next.

I'd like to wear them with a long cardigan for work, but I don't know which colour of cardigan.

Any suggestions on what would tone/contrast well?

I think that colour looks good with dark blue.

Have a look at a colour wheel

The options are:
- tones of the same colour - go lighter or darker
- adjacent colours in the same tone - so a murky mustard or a deeper red
- diametrically opposite - blues
or chose a third in either direction for a clash - purple or green.

Navy blue or slate grey look good.

I wear a navy blue dress with a terracotta cardigan

Nice top. I agree navy or grey. However in the link the top looks more like a plum colour than a terracotta? If it is actually more redd-ish than orange-ish, it might look nice with tan or warm cream.

any variation on the theme of tan/beige/brown, also mustard, teal, navy (not too dark and stark), one of those warm taupe greys that are everywhere atm.
