    It looks boring and the belt looks a bit tacky so I'd be removing it. Is there any way I can make it look more interesting?

    Bearing in mind, I'd be wearing it with black tights too (this is because I have quite a bit of major scaring from an operation I had on my leg a few years ago so I'm not confident enough to bare my legs. ) would it even look ok with black tights?

    What kind of accessories would you suggest? Shoes etc. Thanks in advance!

    I think it would look fine with black tights.
    Personally I would wear it with black shoes and then lots of gold jewellery.

    I can't imagine it looking right with black tights tbh cos it looks quite long? I don't think tights + long skirts/dresses look right together.

    It's a gorgeous dress, wear the tights!

    I'd get rid of the belt too. Try putting black ribbon where the belt goes?

    That's what I thought but as it's asymmetric and I'm quite tall (5'10"), it's not as long on me as it would be on your average British woman. So perhaps it wouldn't be so bad?

    Black tights, gold heels, black and gold jewellery . Replace the belt with a black one, maybe with a gold buckle.

    Could you post a picture of you wearing it with the tights?

    I really really like this idea, I was thinking maybe get a belt similar to that one but in black so it doesn't look so tacky but a ribbon sounds even better than that - and the black ribbon will go with the black tights. Match your bag with your shoes (and possibly jewellery), I'd personally go grey shoes, grey bag, silver jewellery (because I don't like wearing black tights with black shoes) and make sure the tights are plain and quite sheer. And with a strapless dress I would say always wear a necklace.
