I've got to go to a wedding on Saturday and just bought a suit but am hopeless at any sort of style/ knowing what works! It's linen and i quite like the idea of dark red shoes but maybe there'd be something better? Any tips would be brilliant!

I think you could work the red thing, as it would be a nice contrast??
I would probably get some red bead accesories to match.

Thanks Fizzipop, it's nice to have some reassurance! will try and find red bead accessories, good idea. Thanks so much

Best contrast would be more of a purple. There's a good explanation of colour 'families' at, and an interactive colour-coordinating thingy - it's for interiors but the same principle applies. Pick the nearest colour to your outfit then click 'contrast'

If you do go for red, make sure it has a touch of blue in it - a wine-ish red maybe

franch that website is really good fun! Now spending rather a lot of time holding the skirt against the computer screen to see which colour it matches!! Thanks for the help.
