Wedding at the weekend in the frozen north - I've been just organised enough to buy a beautiful skirt here: https://www.joythestore.com/louche-luxe-joyous-bloom-print-jacquard-midi-skirt
I'm thinking of wearing it with an off white silk t shirt style top and cobalt blue heels. Really struggling to find a suitable layer in terms of shape and colour to put over the top - I hate my arms and don't want to be cold!
Was thinking of this: http://m.asos.com/asos/asos-chunky-cardigan-in-fluffy-rib/prd/8796668?clr=purple&SearchQuery=cardigans&pgesize=54&pge=1&totalstyles=54&gridsize=2&gridrow=2&gridcolumn=1
Best feature is I still have an hourglass figure so don't want to lose that with too long a cardie; and not sure if I should be going more neutral on colour because of bright shoes. Any help wise gurus??!
Wow lots of responses - thank you! I agree about fitted, it was tricky to find one that wasn't too 'old' for me (late twenties). I can do nude shoes, I just thought the blue would bring out the dark violet of the skirt background. Ted Baker one a bit pricey, but I can have a hunt for cheaper versions - is the verdict more towards a neutral colour than a coral or fuchsia (which was what I was thinking originally)?
Boden do cropped cardigans in 101 different colours. As do Kettlewell Colours. Pure might have something as well. Colour wise I'd pull out a minor colour from the dress but it will depend on the shoes, cobalt shoes with neutral cardigan, nude shoes with colourful cardigan. What kind of bag do you have?
