Beautiful dress! Maybe black hose, classic black pumps, a drapey print scarf (simple and not too long or heavy) in several colors plus black for the neckline.

This is a beautifully fitted, timeless dress that will never look dated. It fits and flatters you so nicely. Great hemming tip on your blog, too! Thanks for reviewing a pattern I've been wanting to try.

I think your dress is a knock out! I would love to see a narrow black belt at the waist seam. I love red and black so I would suggest thise go together nicely.
