I have bought this dress for a wedding but am really struggling to find a jacket/wrap to go with it. I can default to black shoes as the bottom of the dress is a really dark blue- looks almost black but I would rather not have a black jacket. Any ideas?

Thank you!

Day time bump!

Nude heels - they are everywhere - and a short bolero type jacket

Have you tried it with the matching cardigan?

I saw the cardigan but thought it would be too much pattern going on! It went into the sale so not sure I would get it now but I will have a look.

Thanks Row, I have nude heels but they don't look right. I definitely want a short jacket- it's just finding the right colour!

Thanks for the ideas x

I would go for coloured court shoes (hot pink) not nude I think they would spoil it Its lovely!

Thanks Noddy! I ordered these today but I love the idea of pink- I had considered purple & blue but I would love a pair of hot pink heels!

M&co had some dressier bolero/shrug cardigans in their sale.

You could also try Boden's sale. There are lots of coloured cropped cardigans and a few shrugs.

I second a pair of bright court shoes pink, purple or turquoise.

How about this shrug - not sure if it the right shade of turquoise. uk.monsoon.co.uk/view/product/uk_catalog/mon_1,mon_1.6/7432200751

That's really nice chemistc, I will order it and try it with the dress. Looking at Boden now, thanks Dust.
