NWR: Dress Help

Hi Ladies,
I never post over here but there seems to be more activity going on. I have an evening, weekday wedding coming up and then my company holiday party. I ordered this dress online, but I'm stuck as to what to wear with it.

It's freezing out so I was thinking of black tights, but then wanted to wear ballet flats because I hate to tower over FI. Do you think that'd look OK? I was going to pair a burgundy or grey cardigan with it.

Thoughts/suggestions?

  • yea, once I have the dress - it should be here in a few days.

    I did a google search online in terms of black dresses with tights and ballet flats, it seemed to look cute elsewhere.

  • Do you have silver shimmer tights? I feel like if you wore a black dress, tights, and shoes it could be too much black, and a different color tights could spruce it up.

    I agree with this. 

    I think it would look good, if you made sure the tights were more on the sheer black side as opposed to more opaque so that there is a contrast in your tights against the black of the dress and the black of your shoes. Otherwise all the black will blend too much. 

    A grey or red cardigan that you mentioned wearing would also be pretty.

  • OK, makes sense. I'll stick towards opaque black tights.

    Thanks for the help!
