What shoes and accessories with this navy jumpsuit (for a wedding)

Have bought this navy jumpsuit (following v. helpful advice on another thread) to wear to a wedding and a few other upcoming events. It looks lovely on (if I do say so myself), but I don't have any suitable shoes or bag. I have a cream linen blazer I'll wear over it for when it's chilly (evening wedding in a marque). What colour and style of shoes, bag, jewellery, etc, would go well with it? I never wear heels (more of a brogues kind of girl), but am willing to sacrifice my feet on this occasion (although probably can't manage anything too high without breaking my ankle).

If you're wearing a cream blazer, maybe go for navy/gold/rose gold for shoes and then, if navy shoes a gold or rose gold bag or, if gold shoes then a navy bag?

Don't know if any of the below would work?
Blue velvet
sparkly gold flats
rose gold flats
dark blue satin heels

Thanks Moonlight. If I'm wearing the cream blazer, would gold shoes and a gold bag be too much?

And what about jewellery?!?

Actually I prefer silver accessories as gold is a bit bling. Or go with cream. If you do not want high heels, LK Bennett do lower heels in a variety of colours and some of the lower chunkier heels at Russell and Bromley are lovely.

I think a plain cream jacket is a bit boring. Thee are some great navy mix jackets in Zara including a Chanel style one.

Hmm. Ok. Thanks! Couldn't see anything fitting that description on the Zara website, but I don't really know what I'm looking for.

Aaargh - a bit lost as how to style this jumpsuit. Definitely don't want to look either bling or boring sad

A dull or pale gold won't be bling - honestly! I was about to say wouldn't go for both bag and shoes gold, but, if you got the tones/textures right (i.e. not exactly the same colours) it might well work.

For jewellery - what do you have in already? Statement earrings, or rather earring confused are in at the moment, but that jumpsuit could definitely carry off a statement necklace.

For cream then this Zara one could work but I would be tempted to go for a color- I like this pink

And actually, there are some v.nice flat shoes in Zara too, looking at the website. grin

I think a bouclé jacket could work? Like this, for example. Maybe with a metallic boxy clutch, a simple silver cuff and some navy or nude shoes?

I tried that one on the other day - lovely but too long for me sadly (even in heels!) I was going to go with silver heels and bag and there's a silver cardigan in Zara for £15 which i would use as a cover up (ordered it anyway for the dress I got instead.)

I bought this in the green for a wedding! I'm thinking of a cream cardigan if it's chilly (the wedding is in Wales) or a silk cream and gold shawl if it's not too cold (hate my upper arms so need to cover them whatever the weather!). Not sure about shoes yet - it definitely needs heels, but I live in boots and converse and can only wear heels to sit down in smile. Will check out Zara.

Yellow? I love yellow and navy.

Sorry - only just seen these replies. Thanks for all the suggestions.

I already own a cream linen blazer type jacket, so I was hoping I could just get away with wearing that rather than having to buy something else new.

Shoes - I ordered these online. They're not as shiny in real life and actually surprisingly comfortable and I can just about walk in them. I don't love them, but think they'll do.

Not sure yet about jewellery - most/ all of mine is silver and I don't have much in the way of 'statement' pieces. Have been looking at some Tatty Devine stuff online and quite like this one

Bags... Don't want to go too matchy-matchy with the shoes so might try to find something embellished/ fun. Possibly like this one

However, am a bit worried that I'll look like a Christmas tree with all that. What d'you think?

Closetlibrarian Sun 21-May-17 21:26:51

ps Nashville I too love yellow and navy and wish I'd seen those shoes before I went down this metallics road that I now feel too far down to turn back!

MoonlightandMusic Sun 21-May-17 22:47:41

If you got the shoes online, then with the distance selling rules, you should be able to return and go for the yellow ones. The ones Nashville linked to would go with the bag and necklace too. grin
