What would you wear with this dress?

I want to try more dresses this shape as I think they suit me, but to wear it more casually, what would you put it with? I don't have any need to wear it for work etc, so court shoes would look OTT for everyday.

tights and boots once the weather gets colder I recon

Shoe boots maybe? court shoes would look wrong I agree

Def boots if you want to dress it down a bit. And maybe some contrasting accessories.

I think the block colour is quite dressy itself though (iyswim), I think I'd maybe go for something with a slight pattern to look a bit more casual.

Thanks everyone. I haven't seen it IRL oldbag, I don't have any DP dresses, and no I agree I'm not mad about the cuffs, it just looks the right shape for me and like I'd have enough room for my ample norks!

I know what you mean goatinacoat, it's just i haven't seen anything else that i like the shape of- most have empire lines which are too high, or don't have a tie back, and I need that because my waist is the best bit and I'm not mad keen on waist belts.

Anyone seen any other nice jersey dresses??

Have a look at French Connection. I now have 3 of their jersey dresses and honestly have never had so many compliments in my life. They are so flattering and lovely to wear. And they're often cheaper on ebay too, btw.

Ooh, love it.

Except I have this dress so I can't really get your dress. That one is lovely by the way, heavier material than DP is usually and lots of material in the skirt.
