I have a Sunday lunch birthday meal to go to. I've gained some weight and don't feel good in anything at the moment. I'm thinking of wearing a plain black jersey dress that seems to fit well but what should I wear with It to make it look a bit less plain?

What length is the dress, does it have sleeves, shape of neckline etc?

poppym12 Thu 23-Jun-16 18:58:54

It's long with a round neck, slightly v back and cap sleeves.

Black or metallic wedges, and a lariat necklace hanging over the back in similar metal . Wd you wear. a belt with it ? Bag to tie in with sandals or belt.Or cd go with turquoise for the jewelry.

Could I get away with silver and turquoise jewellery? Probably needs to be quite a big, visible necklace?

I was going to wear a belt but when I tried the dress on earlier, I realised that it's gathered under the bust rather than at the waist. Shame really as I have a metal disc belt I'd thought would look nice it a plain black dress.

Silver and turquoise wd great with black. OH and the silver disc belt wd have been good ,but the waist...I am seeing a western theme emerging! YOu wdn't have cowgirl boots with metallic decs?

no, its not a hoedown grin !! i do have a colum-y shaped charcoal dress that i could wear the belt with. try stuff on again.

Yes wear the belt with the right dress and accessoriise with the silver and turquoise necklace!

when I wear plain black dresses, I tend to wear really special shoes, a big cuff and a lovely clutch.

It's not from DPs is it? Sounds a bit like mine. Statement necklace, sandals/heels and an oversized clutch.

Love the idea of a cuff, thank you.

It's not from DP ginger. Asos I think but can't remember the brand.

Oohh if I tried heels like that I fear an a & e trip would be in order as clumsy me plus heels and maxi dress wouldn't be a good combination.
