Hi I am going to a wedding at the end of September and the dress I like is a plain navy maxi dress but what colour shoes,bag and fascinator should I wear. I am not a small person if that makes any difference grin

I would go for red as I love teaming it with navy.

Have you got a pic of the dress? How have they styled it? What were you thinking of wearing with it? I still think red though.

It depends on the navy and style of dress.

My first preference is patent nude with navy.

Metallics are good for lifting navy but it depends on the tone of navy as gold can be too brash, silver a bit "disco".

Cream can also look chic and you can wear a cream jacket too.

Red is good but so hard to match and there's nothing worse than mismatched reds...

Mint green looks lovely with navy or fushia pink

OhMittens Sun 12-Jul-15 20:34:52

Yes I like fuschia pink with navy as well.

It's a lovely dress, OP!

Pink light or dark but I think light looks note sophisticated and classy

shadesofwinter Sun 12-Jul-15 21:14:13

Evilpixie Mon 13-Jul-15 05:58:45

Ok guys so what style would go best the courts shoe or strappys

BellMcEnd Mon 13-Jul-15 06:25:06


Lovely dress smile

BellMcEnd Mon 13-Jul-15 06:25:49

Oh and if pink then I like the strappy sandals the best

OhMittens Mon 13-Jul-15 22:18:55

I'm not sure those strappy sandals suit the dress (just my personal opinion) and they look pretty uncomfortable for a long event, being so high and strappy. ASOS do a pink court called Southy which are a great colour (a very modern lipstick fuchsia - the video gives a better idea of the colour than the pics) and the shape is modern too.
