I'm trying to get more wear out of my navy and white striped Blackberry dress for work. Cooler weather proofing it with navy tights and... what on the feet?

Can I wear these? www.clarks.co.uk/p/26108742

I'm a 40ish teacher.

Thank you fashionistas! flowers

Please don't! You are several decades too young

Ginmakesitallok Sun 13-Mar-16 20:58:26

They are truly hideous

HixieRice Sun 13-Mar-16 20:59:04

Absolutely not! Tights and sandals?? shock
Ankle boots are the way to go until summer

HolgerDanske Sun 13-Mar-16 20:59:56

No. Completely agree that you are several decades too young.

Nooo they are not ok! And especially not with navy tights!

boobashka Sun 13-Mar-16 21:02:14

Thanks for the speedy advice smile

I'm struggling. What can I wear with my lovely dress and tights?

I have tan ankle boots but they're a bit high for day to day. Would these be ok? www.marksandspencer.com/leather-block-heel-ankle-boots-with-insolia/p/p22401610?prevPage=srp

Or any suggestions for something which isn't a boot.

Agree with Hixie - tights and sandals look odd together IMHO. If it's too cold for bare legs, it's probably too cold for sandals iyswim. I'd go for boots instead myself.

HolgerDanske Sun 13-Mar-16 21:05:27

They are marginally better, and I understand you want to be comfortable. But I think you would need to stay away from navy tights altogether. Maybe just tan or natural, if you have to wear tights.

Belikethat Sun 13-Mar-16 21:05:29

Everyone knows you can't do tights or socks with sandals. It's the law.

boobashka Sun 13-Mar-16 21:06:14

Or I have some shoes a bit like this:

tinyurl.com/h4ul8tx that I could wear.

I've seen some of the youngesters wearing similar with tights.

Am I too old/untrendy? Trying hard to avoid the frump!!!

Belikethat Sun 13-Mar-16 21:09:15

Do you have a link to the dress op?

boobashka Sun 13-Mar-16 21:09:34

So it's the navy tights that are problematic?

confused

Maybe the Blackberry will have to stay in the wardrobe til summer...

weasle Sun 13-Mar-16 21:09:51

How about those clogs I've seen on here before. Lotta from Sweden??

BikeRunSki Sun 13-Mar-16 21:10:34

Those Clark's sandals don't go with anything.

foxybingodotcom Sun 13-Mar-16 21:10:38

M&S boots are a much better option!

boobashka Sun 13-Mar-16 21:10:47

Yes - here's the dress:

They're ok but not with tights. Maybe with cropped jeans.

BikeRunSki Sun 13-Mar-16 21:12:32

I've just looked at the dress, I think it's just too summery to winterise.

Belikethat Sun 13-Mar-16 21:13:30

Yes I agree re the dress. Just wear it on a summer's day. It's very casual.

boobashka Sun 13-Mar-16 21:13:34

I almost bought a pair of Lotta's last year.

How about these: www.lottafromstockholm.co.uk/clogs/low-heel-clogs/low-wood-brown-oiled-nubuck.html

With tights...? Please!!

OverAndAbove Sun 13-Mar-16 21:13:57

Well the clue is in the description - it's a summer dress. Don't wear it with tights!

It's lovely btw - looks like it hangs nicely?

allegretto Sun 13-Mar-16 21:15:57

I like the sandals! But not with tights.

boobashka Sun 13-Mar-16 21:17:56

sad Looks like the blackberry won't be making an early appearance.
What about my other boden summer dress:

www.boden.co.uk/en-gb/womens-dresses/day-dresses/wh980-grn/womens-chalky-green-mosaic-casual-jersey-dress

Can I wear this with thin natural tights and the Lotta's?

Thank you v much - this is saving me a lot of time showing outfits to DH who doesn't have a clue anyway!!
