Iv'e bought this dress. Plan to wear it out to dinner with friends next weekend. Dresses are a big deal for me as i'm a jeans/jeggings and jumper kinda gal.

Just tried on my various heels (dusted off from the back of the wardrobe!) and none feel comfortable any more. Its been years since I wore them.

I have a lovely suede pair of black wedge ankle boots but not sure if they would look ok with the dress. They are like these but without the metal bit.

Would that be ok??
Nude or black tights?

Any suggestions would be fab as i'm normally a frumpy mummy but want to look nice for once!

I don't think so sorry.. The wedge is too casual for the dress.. Can you find shoe boots with a nice heel?

I would but it's not elegant, if that's what you're after, and definitely not with nude tights.

I have these I could wear but worry about looking too dressed up as ive no idea what others will wear. Its only dinner at chimichanga! smile

Mary- www.matalan.co.uk/womens/shop-by-category/dresses/black-dresses/s2582855/twist-knot-dress Super cheap bargain. Didn't want to spend much knowing after this it will probably sit in the wardrobe gathering dust! smile

I think they will look fine, if you wear them with black opaque tights.

The shoes will look much better. They will look nice with black tights.

Boots with opaque tights. I think that will look good without being too dressy.

The boots if you're going for a casual look. The shoes will make it a bit dressy, IMO. (More like dressing for work, TBH.)

If you wear opaque black tights, it will look fine.

Agree boots with opaques will look nice, bit edgy with right accesories

I vote for the boots, too. Dressed up without being overdressed.

Definitely black opaque tights either way.
