Please help me accessorize my dress

I have a Sweet 16 this Friday and I'm most likely going to wear the first dress (black). I was thinking to accessorize it with patent shoes and clutch, but I'm not sure if I should wear nude or opaque tights. What do you think?

Dress #2 is my back-up.

I'd go with the second dress with opaque tights and patent shoes..

Edited because that's not what you were asking...lol

I would say nude.. I don't like stockings, but I think the black dress, with black tights and black shoes might be a bit "bland" for a sweet 16..

I would do no tights.

Or you can do black opaque tights with the patent shoes and colorful accessories...like a red beaded necklace or a chunky turcoise necklace.

I agree with this - I'm not a fan of stockings, but I'd go with nude over black tights.
Where did you get that second dress from? I love it!

I would wear nude tights. I personally cannot wear shoes like that without themChat Icon. I also agree with the above poster's recommendation to wear the 2nd dress. It is a fun dress and I think better suited for the occassion. Plus if you celebrate V-day, that might be an outfit to considerChat Icon .

If you go with the 1st dress I'd wear a long necklace. If you do the 2nd dress I'd recommend wearing a bracelt.

Thanks ladies!

I have fat arms so I don't think Im going to expose them in dress #2.

What about fishnet stockings? Would those make my calves look bigger?

OK, fat arms?! You are so gorgeous nobody will be looking at your arms!
