What can I wear with this dress?

I love it but it's very short. It's too pretty to wear with leggings what else could I wear it with? It's navy by the way in case it's not showed up properly.

Some suede effect, navy, closed toe sandals? What's the occasion?

Whatshouldmyusernamebe Sun 15-Oct-17 22:29:23

Not one yet. I bought it in the sale. Might be nice for Xmas parties. Need something for my legs it's too short with nothing but leggings look all wrong!

Can't you just wear black tights? Disclaimer: I'm in Scotland where wearing tights with everything is de rigeur.

What sort of tights? Like sheer ones? It's navy though I'm not sure they would look ok. Maybe navy tights would look alright. It's annoying. Wish dress was a bit longer!

Black opaques and ankle boots?

MaryLennoxsScowl Sun 15-Oct-17 23:13:06

Navy tights are gross! No, black tights, the denier of your choice - sheer would be nice. Not wearing black tights with navy is pretty old-fashioned now, isn't it?

I wouldn’t wear it with black tights, I’d go for navy or grey instead

TheBoyWhoWouldntHoeCorn Sun 15-Oct-17 23:15:31

Something like these

LondonStill83 Sun 15-Oct-17 23:18:36

The boy who- I like those, but think anthracite would look better. With heels.

ShirleyPhallus Sun 15-Oct-17 23:19:26

I'd get some navy lace and sew an extra panel on the bottom of a few inches

Then wear it with nude tights. Navy tights look awful imo. Only nude or black tights should ever be worn.

Whatshouldmyusernamebe Sun 15-Oct-17 23:19:56

I think black tights would clash hideously with navy dress.

Whatshouldmyusernamebe Sun 15-Oct-17 23:20:36

Shirley phallus im not clever enough to do that.

Pinlovescake Sun 15-Oct-17 23:22:24

I don't get what's so bad about navy tights with a navy dress. If it's short wear opaque navy tights - beige ones will not help in any way as it's essentially like having bare legs...

Navy tights with taupe/stone ankle boots?

CountFosco Mon 16-Oct-17 06:05:26

I'd wear navy tights and navy ankle boots. In fact I'm wearing that to work today.

NeonSun Mon 16-Oct-17 06:25:38

Leggings and jeans are the best decision in this case smile You should only choose the colour for them which will fit the dress.
Also if I were you, I would wear with them nice leather pants but I know that not all people like them smile

You could wear with coloured tights ? I know not every one likes them but you can get in nearly every colour i used to have a dark purple pair i wore alot. Other option uf you dont want to wear tights or leggings is take to dress maker and ask them to make it longer ?

RavingRoo Mon 16-Oct-17 06:45:40

Opaque black tights, high heeled ankle boots. I think I have a similar navy dress and have styled it similarly.

Fairylea Mon 16-Oct-17 06:46:03

I’m not getting all the hate for navy tights either confused I really like the dress and I’d wear it with some 60-80 den navy tights (thick but not completely leggings ish) and some black velvet block heeled boots or shoes.

MrsPringles Mon 16-Oct-17 06:49:14

I'd go for thick black tights (Primark do a fab 200 denier that are perfect for things like this) and then wear with tan/taupe coloured ankle boots with a chunky heel

ImogenTubbs Mon 16-Oct-17 07:07:51

Don't understand the hate for coloured tights on this thread! Navy tights would look great with ankle boots.

EmilyEvasive Mon 16-Oct-17 08:07:15

Don’t wear black tights if the dress is navy!

Navy tights will look great with it!

Blergh coloured tights are gross, there's nothing wrong with black and navy, a sheer pair of black tights will look best undoubtedly.
