I have a new navy dress with a bright green bow in the middle and will wear it with black high heel patent shoes but which colour / style tights would you fashion savvy lot wear, please??

Assuming it's a smart dress, sheer navy. Black or nude would be boring, green would make you look like a freak.

Thank you, it is a smart dress for a 40th birthday party.

Your outfit sounds lovely, the green bow will add a nice unexpected splash of colour.

Hmmm I don't like sheer navy - feel it's a bit frumpy so would prob go for nude

Can you link to the dress pls.

sorry , I can't find it on the TK Maxx website, it's navy blue just above the knee with an integral bright green bow. I've bought navy sheer and have nude too so will try both and see, thanks for your help!

What make is it?

I wouldn't wear black shoes with a navy dress tbh, not for a party. If you had, say, neutral shoes you could wear grey tights.

With the colours as you describe them, I'd go for nude fishnets.

It's made by Just Ginger, do you think nude/peach high heels would be better with nude tights? thanks

I think nude tights and nude heels is a bit boring, but that's a personal taste thing – I like to contrast. I'd go for bright tights and nude shoes, or nude tights and coloured shoes (but not black).

Yes, matching the green with the tights (cheaper) or shoes might be good.

Definitely think nude tights plus nude shoes not right. Nude tights and a different sort of 'neutral' shoe - eg silver or pewter - might work, though.

Thank you, think I have worked out what combination works now!
