what about some kind of chunky black beads?

rubyslippers Thu 12-Feb-09 19:11:02

i wouldn't wear a necklace with it as the pattern is very busy

would go for some chunky bangles though

I think black beads might get lost on such a busy black print. How about something like chunky beads in a bold colour, like orange, electric blue or green?

I would go for chunky gold bangles with that dress. Black beads will be too much. Would also maybe team with some gold earrings too - it will balance out the pattern so it isn't wearing you!

would this go?

ITA.....beads might look confusing ly like a part of the pattern, love the bangles idea. I would never have come up with that on my own BTW,am in awe of people who just know that sort of thing.

I was thinking silver bangles as it has silver in the dress
and some big silver hoop earrings
black opaque tights
and High heeled ankle boots

I did see that leaf design necklace but I reckon it would get lost. Bangles a good idea.

mrshamiltiongiles Thu 12-Feb-09 19:15:57

these?

mrsmaidamess Thu 12-Feb-09 19:16:37

mrshamiltiongiles- i have that dress, only bought it last week, i have worn it as a dress with thick tights and boots or with skinny jeans, it would look great with some large beads.
