OK it is my 50th next Monday and I'm having a party on Saturday. I want to wear this dress, but what accessories shall I wear? Sheer black tights? Opaques? Bare legs? A necklace? Hair up or down?

Wow you look wonderful. I would wear sheer tights and hair down. I would get myself a necklace that is longer than the one in your photo as the dress has a V neck. Try Next.
There are some lovely blue sparkly necklaces about. I always think short necklaces with plunging necklines look odd.
Have a lovely time and happy birthday

Thanks for replying! I though sheer tights, but then I saw on another thread someone said sheer tights were a bit Dorien from Birds of a Feather. I definitely don't want to look like her!
Thanks for the necklace advice - I was going to wear a short one, but will now go for a long one as I see what you mean. Thanks

I would say definitely bare legs with that dress. Tights will spoil it and you have good legs. Hair down, I probably wouldn't wear a necklace, just simple earrings, let the dress do the talking. You do not look 50 by the way!!! Have fun!

50! You look half that!

Happy birthday flowers
