Just ordered this whistles Lola dress - had a similar one in the summer and was hankering for navy for work... Anyway on the website its described as a summer dress - but surely I can wear it now can't I? Only thing is am not too sure what with - opaques? Long boots ? Short boots ? Really want to keep it but can't really have it languishing in my wardrobe for months. Any ideas?
I'd wear it with a long-sleeved top underneath (like one of the Uniqlo heat-tech scoop necks), navy opaques and either biker or Chelsea boots. A grey marl top and tights might be good too? I wear a slip with absolutely every dress/skirt to stop them clinging to tights, that would stop the see-through bit. It's a lovely dress.
Thanks for the replies - missed these last night. Hurrah I might be able to keep it now that a few of you have given me encouragement! I really am not worried about being cold - am normally boiling in my office. ( and have a nice warm coat !) It was more about the right footwear for the dress as it's obviously needs a certain style. Will try on again later with opaques etc. Slip is a good idea. I don't have biker or Chelsea boots but will see what other options I have. Would love a new pair of boots actually ... Thanks again
