Hello MeFi fashion advisors! So I bought this dress
(top right on the linked page) to wear to work. It's a very curvacious cut and makes me look a bit like Joan out of Mad Men. I'm just not sure what kind of shoes would go with it.
I could get some matching heels, like the model in the photograph, but I think this look would be a bit too smart/formal for my office - our dress code is fairly relaxed, and I don't want to stand out too much. I usually wear boots or flats, but I have tried my existing ones on with the dress and they don't look right - flats look too casual and the boots look too bulky. I do have a nice black patent pair of heels, but can I wear black with a dark navy dress like this? Do you think I should try something completely different, like, I don't know, red or gold or something? (I don't mind looking a bit quirky.) Would it be possible to carry off the dress with flats or should I go for it and wear heels? I guess I want to retain the glamour of the dress without looking like I'm all dressed up for a job interview! Thanks for any suggestions.
