Okay, I'm wearing this silk Cacharel by Eley Kishimoto dress for my sister's wedding next month. I have a few ideas for how to accessorize, but I 'd like to hear your fresh ideas as well! Heels/flats? jewelry? what to wear on top (will be a bit chilly)...how would you style it?

For chill, I would top it with a short, white colored wrap. Or you could do a long-ish white blazer.
I wouldn't accessorize too much bc it'd compete w/ the dress graphics. Maybe some lucite or clear bangles like Alexis Bittal.
And I think heels would be too much (plus you'll be on your feet for awhile) and I'd be more apt to go with a flat sandal IF appropriate with however formal her wedding will be. If not, strappy high sandals or a wedge.

Thank you Serenity! Fantastic advice, sigh of relief. The chill factor was the biggest concern...I had NOT thought of a white wrap, what a great idea! I hadnt thought of lucite either, that also would in fact go very well.
I'm glad you also think flat sandals would be best, I was thinking of simple gold sandals. It's the dress length... and you're right I'll be running around helping out all day long. The wedding is casual-ish so it's fine.
I need some help with this skirt. Apart from wearing it with a black tank tucked in, a blazer or leather jacket and some really high black heels I have no idea what to do with it. (by the way it is highwaisted, not that the image really shows that)
Awww thanks so much softie, such a compliment coming from you
Splash of Colour, personally I like to mix textures...since the skirt has a lovely simple b/w pattern, I would be tempted to go w/ abstract lacy but dark black leggings/tights and high heeled black booties or sandals, but nothing with too much foot showing. I'd keep the legs&feet strong and not feminine. Then, a loose cropped very simple white tee, maybe? With short loose (rolled or not) sleeves. Actually, flutter/puff sleeves would look cute if the tee is not loose. White up, black below. Chanel-type chain bag?
yeah- i like little booties with that skirt...
that's what i was picturing...
a little heel is fine...
but high stilettos just read 'hoochie' with anything short and tight...
(unless you're in a music video)
plus it's a little obvious and not very interesting to me...
that might be something you like...so if it is...
just ignore me and my suggestions..
i am just always anti- hooch...

OK, I am not sure if the length for this jacket work with my long torso. I am also trying to pair this with a new top. It doesn't flare out after my waist line, but it does cinch near my rib cage and waist, almost like a princess waist
Can anyone comment should i pair this outfit with a black crutch or red hobo? My though was if i wear my black pump, i pair if with a blk crutch for more of an even look. and use the red hobo with my red peep toe for a more casual look. Am I even close or totally off?
