hmmm....personally I wouldn't put a white cardi over a navy dress, especially in the winter

Where are you planning on wearing the dress - what occasion?

There is a little navy kimono shaped shrug/cardigan in Dorothy perkins which is nice

Dress = gorgeous! Love it!

Shrug = cheap looking, looks saggy and ill fitting and horrible colour - would take away from your fab dress.

I think any of these would look better

lovely and sparkly -perfect for an Autumn/Winter do imo

sparkly again and a massive bargain!

this one could look nice

I love this one and think it would look great

or this which would look fab in a clashy way

Can you shoe us your shoes for the dress? Might be easier to find a shrug that way!

I like the John lewis violet one best.
maybe with coloured tights and silver shoes and silver jewellery( agree with Ruby)

this one would go with silver shoes. Much much better than your original one.

this one maybe if you need long sleeves

I was just going to link to that cremotrium!

What do you think?

I like it!

shopstyle is quite a useful tool for finding things

cremolatorium Tue 06-Oct-09 11:19:59

I think that new look one is perfect.very on trend. I do think you would need to try it on with the dress to make sure the whole look is not too 'ruffled'
the colour is excellent though.

Disembodied3 Tue 06-Oct-09 11:21:25

ill order it and return it to the shop if i dont like it,


Can I ask you clever ladies whilst your here...

would nude tights be OK wiht peeptoe shoes?

cremolatorium Tue 06-Oct-09 11:23:48

don't ask me - i am a fan of opaque coloured tights. I defer to everyone else on the subject of nude legs... grin

Disembodied3 Tue 06-Oct-09 11:25:09

I don't think I could do colour with all the navy though?

notwavingjustironing Tue 06-Oct-09 11:26:23

you can buy nude tights with no toes in so you get the sleek look on your legs without that horrible seam on the toes. I know M&S sell them, but I'm sure loads of other places do too.

Love the dress by the way.

No to nude tights - could you fake tan and apply some nice moisturiser so they look glossy?

Perhaps a spray tan - so you're a nice colour all over??

Was also wondering if the new look shrug doesn't work would a wrap be ok? I'd be thinking of bright pink for contrast . . .
