Going to theatre/dinner tonight and not sure what to wear, choices so far are a black wool tube dress and suede stiletto boots or print shorts with black opaques, jumper and ankle boots. Any thoughts?

You look great in both, but I think I'd edge towards the dress.

I think i'm leaning towards the dress...I feel slightly mutton in the shorts (am 38)...

I love the shorts and tights look. And I like those shorts. So I'll say "shorts".

Shorts! Lovely.

PS. There's nothing "mutton" about your look. I'm a bit more than older than you and I'd wear it.

I love those shorts, where are they from?

Both outfits are lovely [no help]

I would say shorts. I think the dress looks a little odd with the boots. I think both outfits look a little wintery to be honest. What about the dress with different shoes or the shoes with a top other than polo neck? You could add a jacket too to the shorts to make it dressier? You have a fabulous figure.

Thank you! blush

The shorts are Zara, I have not worn shorts since I was a child but they were £8 in the sale so I gave them a go...I have worn them out once so far and DH thought I was dressed like Taylor Swift (he meant it as a compliment hmm)

But it's still freezing Botchit I don't want to be walking around London post-theatre going all blue (wimp emoticon)

The dress looks too dressy with courts...I would add a camel leather biker jacket if I wore the dress, a big black wrap thingy with the shorts...

Looks like shorts win...DD says dress but she is 11 and probably wants the shorts for herself grin

Shorts! You'll look great! :-)

You look totally fabulous in the shorts.

Ifonlyiweretaller Fri 08-Apr-16 15:32:27

Shorts look great, another vote for those.

Shorts look better.

Shorts, it would be a crime to hide those legs! grin

Shorts! Dress looks like it will be warm in the theatre

The shorts look lovely.

The shorts look fab they really flatter your shape. Not sure about the dress with the boots.
