So, Ive got a navy blue satiny dress, which ive put a stretchy wide dark purple belt round under the bust. Then I got some purple tights (this is all from primark, was a bargain!), which look really nice with the dress and belt. I want to get some flat slip on shoes (cheap ones) to go with the outfit. But what colour would go? Purple will look too purple. Will black clash with navy? Will navy look to matchey? If i go for a different colour will i look like im taking the daring colour combination look to extreemes?????

Help me please....... grin

it has been said that wearing same shoe and tights colour lengthens the appearance of your legs though

also love the idea of yellow, i have some yellow shoes, but htey have peep toes, so i cant wear them with tights....can I? <<knows nothing about fashion emotion>>

well done for losing the weight! I actually think peeptoes and opaques can work really well - here.

navy, or maybe something like leopard skin. Depend where you're going...

I wore navy dress, purple tights and berry coloured shoes. I liked. Like the red idea too.
