Help styling this dress in time for Friday?

Warehouse dress

Please, ideas?

I've got awful arms (couldn't find an affordable, nice dress with sleeves despite a lot of looking hmm sad ) so I'd really like some sort of non-mumsy coverup/cardigan. Shoes-wise, I've got some black wedge espadrilles (typical sort of style), or tan leather flats, or flip flops a bit like these but black


Thanks! flowers

Should mention, it's for a wedding. But a lovely friendly one. No fascinators wink

I think it's going to be really hot on Friday but something like this sheer kimono would give you coverage without looking frumpy. Or something similar in cream or orange.

All your shoe possibilities sound pretty casual. Is it that sort of wedding?

Regarding jewellery, I don't think you need much. Definitely not a necklace but perhaps a couple of bangles and maybe coordinating earrings. I think brass would look good with the colours and style of the dress.

Bangles like these

I was going to suggest something like this but Pants idea is much better!

I googled espadrilles and they look a bit too casual to me. I think the black sandals you mentioned are probably the best of the shoes.
