I think one of the keys to putting together an outfit is being a little bit unexpected. I love the girliness of Tracy Reese's crystal embellished satin sheath (£110 at Net-a-Porter) but the beige colour could easily wash you out, so I decided to team it with something really bold. Sheer scarlet tights (£3.49) look coral on the legs, so they're the perfect match for Topshop's statement shoes (£60). Finish with coral earrings ($12.50 at Etsy), and lift the beige of the flowers on the hoops with a matching clutch. From a distance the beige clashes with the dress, but remember that it's the subtle, interesting choices that stop outfits looking twee and matchy-matchy.
