I love reading these! And now I need some help of my own with this dress that I've just bought please!

I have nude wedges which are incredibly comfortable or black shoes which are not so much but I can wear them for a while...any other suggestions? What about a cover up as I understand that pashminas are totally passé...?

Thanks!

A shrug or short, tailored jacket with a nipped in waist would work as it has a bit of a Christian Dior New Look feel about it. Gray or metallic to go with the exposed zip. Lovely dress.

I agree, lovely dress! I like the red version too.

I don't know why they put the model in those shoes, they look awful. Nude shoes look much better than black with a navy dress. So wear your comfy nude wedges!

I agree with wow's suggestion of a grey or silver shrug or tailored jacket. I'd probably go for a soft grey shrug as the dress itself is quite structured.

What's the occasion?

Ooh thanks, I hadn't thought of grey! It's for a wedding in a couple of weeks - that information would really be helpful wouldn't it blush

Don't worry, I suspected it was for a wedding! Advice still stands smile

Not sure if link worked quite right - it's actually the teal one rather than the navy. Will try and do a pic...

Fingers crossed...

Still hate the shoes the model is in though!

I did wonder about pale pink, but wasn't sure how that would work with nude shoes.

Ah the teal one is lovely too! One of my favourite colours smile But please don't put it with pale pink, I don't think that would work at all.

I think you could wear black accessories with teal. But nude shoes and a neutral shrug/jacket would also work. If you still want to go for grey/silver I wouldn't go too pale, you need a bit of colour to balance out the teal. If you wear the nude shoes I think you could go for a shrug/jacket that's sort of ecru colour (something between cream and brown... that's ecru right?!)

Hmm so it appears that the world of fashion is really not into neutral coloured shrugs right now! Saw a gorgeous pic on Pinterest of a teal dress with hot pink accessories but not sure I'm brave enough! Was hoping to find something in the end of wedding season sales but nada...
Anyone have any other ideas?
