I think metallics look lovely with that shade of blue. Not too glitzy/shiny, go for a pewter or heavy antique gold for shoes and bag. I personally avoid plain black tights with block colour like that, I would go bare legged or wear some tights with a subtle pattern or texture. But that's just me.
I've got some lacy patterned ones in a silvery grey, some the same in black, or semi-sheer with tiny polka dots. A bit 80s but in a cool way...I promise! Marks and Sparks are surprisingly good for unusual tights, as are Primark. Also for a bare-legged look I swear by flesh coloured fishnets like dancers wear (and Beyonce) They sound VILE but they give good coverage without that icky shiny look that sheer tights give.
I sound like a tights-obsessed freak now....plain black tights would be fine too, I just feel like they make me look like an overgrown schoolgirl! But you are probs more sophisticated than me OP! It's a lovely dress too.
