HELP have brought dress/top for a party but unsure what to wear with it

Pic of dress on profile, although it does not do it justice imo. It is from New Look and I love it, but it is too short to wear as a dress so I hae to work out what to wear it with.

Option A seems to be leggings and flat ballet pumps.

Option B black tights and heels. But will i look daft in tights in June ?

It is only for a 50th party in a social club but I want to look nice.

Help please

Anyone ?

Ooh - I like that!

I'd go for option A - tights might look odd - although could be ok - depends how thick they are

Ooh, Nutty, that is a fab top!
Agree, leggings would be better.

Thanks, I am so glad that you like it. I am never very confident about buying things, but I really liked it.

Will go for leggings and ballet pumps then smile. Might have a look for a pair that are a similar colour to the yellow instead of black.

Leggings yes, but yellow no!

Go for black, ideally wool.

It's very lovely though!

I meant the shoes not leggings lol.

Phew, haha

I think i might look like a bumble bee if I wore yellow leggings with it lol.

I did think it odd that someone with good taste to buy such a top would consider yellow leggings.

My brain isn't quite working today
