nice strappy black sandals if weathers nice and a black and gold cross body bag maybe. Stick on some gold earrings and a nice gold watch or bangle.

completely agree with person above.x

however if you wanted a more subtle bag, something like this may do?

Thanks star, like the sound of black and gold, hardly ever wear heels tho, perhaps some boots? Thanks sleep, i like that bag, it's a good size for keys, purse and phone. Think the grey may be too subtle with sand tho Smile x

I have this dress. I’ve been wearing it with box fresh white Converse (slim red strip on some), a cross body bag in exactly the same colour but with red embroidery on the front (Moschino) and red Marc Jacobs sunglasses.

I always get compliments on it! But I’m retiring it for the year. She’ll be back in 2019!

Very glam singlepringle (sigh) . Do you think it could work for the winter?

Not like the stylist did for that photo, that's for sure!

Hmmm. I think it could work for autumn with flat black (pointed) ankle boots. Or heeled ‘cowboy’ boots in the same colour of the dress. But no dark tights. They’d kill it.

Ooh, black DM boots would also work.

(But again, you need to see some skin between boot and dress, when walking, to stop it being too Handmaids Tale #ofdress)

Except @starkid it’s linen, and that would get crunch, no?
