I've got a navy 3/4 sleeve tightish fitting cardi and it goes with loads of things.

That's a lovely dress! I second the green suggestion.

thanks think i shall try and find a green one then, what sort of green would you say it is?

Either the tealish/brighter green or a deep coral colour

I thought it was teal.

I think it depends on your mood-I'd wear navy if feeling serious, teal for confidence or rose for feminine.

The teal or one of the pinks in the flowers.
depends on your coloring and which you can match best.

Navy would make it a bit of a winter outfit and you need exactly the same navy which is often really dificult.

I think Navy, the base colour, otherwise a pink or emerald green will look as though you want to draw attention/ highlight the cardigan.

Whats wrong with a cardigan? I LOVE a good cardigan!

I agree - teal or coral. not navy - that would look bland and boring.

Teal for sure .peraonally I think that navy wd deaden the frock . Enjoy it fab!

I have no cardi advice as I am a style disaster area, but that dress is lovely and I might get one - thanks!

Is it a faux pas to wear a cardi??? I'm so out of the loop! What 'should' be worn instead?

SinisterSal Thu 20-Mar-14 14:51:26

teal or dusky pink.

Would you go for a cropped style of cardi?

That dress would actually look really nice with a cardigan left unbuttoned and a skinny belt to nip in the waist, the dress lends itself to that style, I think a belt will keep it looking glam.
