Actually, I'd probably wear grey, but given the choice of black or navy I'd go for navy.

I would wear black tights.

Definitely not black. Navy, grey or aubergine.

Think navy wins it based on this poll. Thanks.

from navy v black, I'd wear black tights if the shoes are black, and grey tights otherwise. navy tights if shoes are navy/browns
picky doesnt apply same rules to self

ooh, helpful thread. Can anyone offer S&B a mini class in this?

I struggle with this as I don't like to wear navy and black together and tend to not buy navy dresses unless they can be worn with bare legs and nude or grey shoes. Can you wear different shoes?

I think most shoes can go with navy dresses.. colours, reds, browns, etc. It's a good neutral base colour. I think that the main dilemma is black tights.. I wear navy dresses with black tights and black shoes because my favourite type of tights are black but not totally opaque and I feel weird wearing them with coloured shoes. Different shoe colour requires different tights. I may be breaking lots of rules hmm grey works though as well
