what would you wear with this?

Bridesmaids are wearing this dress. I am stuck as to what colour or style bolero/shrug/cardi to put with it.

Shoes are nude. Had been thinking of putting pale purple with the peach (in the flowers etc), but not decided.

Any ideas?

You can't put a bolero / shrug over that neckline, it will look all wrong. Is it a summer (warm) wedding?

I would put a pashmina/wrap with it.

Mid august. Hoping it will be warm but you never can tell and I would rather plan for the worst case scenario.

Yes to pashmina, but not in the purple I'd probably go with cream or white.

A wrap would give them a back up if it's cold. I'd go with a warm (purplish) grey.

Or silver?

something like this?

Not very warm though...won't need it inside though will they...?

Wraps have always struck me as being quite annoying to wear. But I suppose if its just for outside it wouldn't matter.

That one is nice Dosh, but I think plain would be better so the dress stands out. The dress is much much nicer IRL than in photos.

What's your budget? Matching pale grey or cream pea coats would keep them warm and look nice.
