Coat or jacket for this dress?

I've brought this dress for a wedding in London next weekend but have no idea what kind of coat or jacket will go. I'm assuming the weather will be similar to today, so vaguely nippy. Has anyone got any suggestions please? No idea what length or colour would work!

Neither, I'd opt for a faux fur stole, some think like this : www.ebay.co.uk/itm/like/262903903565?chn=ps%26var%3D561903413204&adgroupid=33676502101&rlsatarget=pla-271646246388&abcId=893836&adtype=pla&merchantid=110365048&googleloc=9046632&device=m&campaignid=707291931&crdt=0&ul_ref=http%253A%252F%252Frover.ebay.com%252Frover%252F1%252F710-134428-41853-0%252F2%253Fmpre%253Dhttp%25253A%25252F%25252Fwww.ebay.co.uk%25252Fitm%25252Flike%25252F262903903565%25253Fchn%25253Dps%25252526var%2525253D561903413204%2526itemid%253D561903413204_262903903565%2526targetid%253D271646246388%2526device%253Dm%2526adtype%253Dpla%2526googleloc%253D9046632%2526poi%253D%2526campaignid%253D707291931%2526adgroupid%253D33676502101%2526rlsatarget%253Dpla-271646246388%2526abcId%253D893836%2526merchantid%253D110365048%2526gclid%253DCj0KEQjw5sHHBRDg5IK6k938j_IBEiQARZBJWkBhP-Ubv6W8EiRKq8vsehC1m4pdbkVS7pZ_InTal_waAkNI8P8HAQ%2526srcrot%253D710-134428-41853-0%2526rvr_id%253D1200520342393&var=561903413208

I'd stick on a faux fur jacket but they are my favs so I'm biased! grin

Ooh thanks so much for the ideas! Hadn't even considered a cape, think I've got some trying in to do smile

Cape is a good idea as those sleeves will be a bit awkward to get under a jacket. Love the colour of that dress!

Nude coloured cashmere / similar wrap?
