I've ordered 4 dresses from Boden - and I'll send 2 or 3 back probably. Can you help me with footwear please!
These are the dresses - all for work and I own similar ones already. I wear flat brogues most of the time, but I think I want to switch to boots and dark tights if I can. But I basically have no clue. I have to have flat shoes or boots cos I've got crap balance and they need to be wideish of toe, cos pointy shoes hurt :-( Any ideas. And also, are any of these dresses horrible (it's free returns!). I'm size 16, lumpy and 5'4 :-)
1st and 4th are nice. I wear similar styles for work and find opaque black tights with shoes that are almost ballet flat works... by that I mean flat shoes that are more substantial than the cheapo slipper type ballet flats.
2nd is awful.
3rd looks very see-through if you look at the bit between the model's legs.
Agree with others, not keen on no2, the spotty one. But the others are nice. I think dark tights and ballet style pumps as I think any type of flat boot might look quite clumpy next to these girly dresses. Think if you go for boots you need some kind of little heel.
