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).
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.
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 are in at the moment, but that jumpsuit could definitely carry off a statement necklace.
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 . Will check out Zara.
