Just that really! Grey? Brown?

yeah, grey would be good.

I'd have green or turquoise but I admit that wouldn't figure highly on the taste-o-meter.

Brown def!

Navy or grey. NOT brown, people!

Too hard to match the brown tights to the brown boots. Therefore would go for dark grey or dark navy.

I don't think I'd put brown boots with a people dress tbh.

At recent p/t meetings the principle had a purple suit with purple tights. I thought at the time that she looked like a blueberry :-(

Grey purple and brown? Far too busy. I'd go for brown tights too, not matchy matchy with the belt, but brown deffo.

Turquoise tights look fab with purple.

Burgundy, teal, turquoise.

I think dark grey would look really nice.

Search google images for 'purple dress brown boots' for ideas. There are quite a few.

I still think you need Black boots though.

change the boots and maybe the dress
keep the belt though
