Need advice about what to wear I'm hopeless at looking nice!
I am going on a leaving do in october (restaurant then a comedy club) I have bought This skirt and plan to wear it with some grey wooly tights do you think these boots would look nice? or a bit tarty, I'm only 5'1 so really need a bit of height, and any ideas about what to wear on the top half? I was thinking a nice top and a cream cardy.
One of the things Ive learned (from here but from real life too) is that accessories can really help. Something that fits really nicely with what you're wearing and is slightly unusual. Not overkeen on the boots tbh but thats a personal taste thing for me - Im sure they'll be lovely on you.
I like the boots but not sure about the grey woolly tights, maybe something else, patterned ones perhaps? And I would wear a plain v neck short tightish jumper instead of the top/cardi combo. But that's just what I would wear
ha ha tethersend I'm not offended! I really really don't suit dresses, I have no waist! and with being short if I don't have a mid line divide I look like a small child! I need to wear the skirt as I only bought it yesterday and it looked nice. What kind of tights were you thinking verystressedmum? do you still think grey or a different colour? I only say grey because that was the coulur that the manikin was wearing with the skirt! (seriously thats all I have taken my inspiration from!)
Like the skirt, not the boots, sorry and no to grey tights, think black would look better, IMO.
I don't know what your figure is like but if I was to wear that skirt probably go with something like these and floaty or silky top like this, if need extra warmth then a black blazer or soft black cardi.
ooooh I really like that topmrs but please correct me if I'm wrong but as a general rule (like I say I'm shit at this stuff!) I thought black and brown don't go and to go down the cream, red, grey route? PS I love black too
